PUR Minerals has been on my radar for quite a while. Whenever I go to Ulta, I always check out the new makeup from PUR. In fact, I just bought the new PUR Eye Polish last week, so stay tuned for my review.
Recently, PUR generously sent me PUR Cameo Contour, a very cool double-ended contour stick with a blending sponge applicator, in all 5 shades in the product line. Wow! And such a lovely presentation!
Because Light is the combo for me and I can’t wear the other 4 shade sticks, I’m going to host a giveaway to 4 lucky winners. So stay tuned and check out the giveaway further into the post.
PUR Cameo Contour
I’m a fan of contour sticks. For me, they’re so much faster and easier to apply than powder, liquids or creams. And I love a double-ended stick because everything I need it right there.
What’s new about these highlighter/contour sticks from PUR is that they come with an angled blending sponge that you can use with this product or for anything you’d like to try. I usually use my fingers or brush to blend my highlighter/contour, but I did try the angled sponge. It’s cool, but there’s a bit of a learning curve with it, at least for me there was.
PUR has an extensive shade range for the Cameo Contour line:
As I mentioned above, I chose Light. Here’s what it looks like including the swatches of the highlighter and contour.
If you’re super fair, the highlighter for “light” may be a tad too dark for you. But the shade range really does seem to accommodate those who skin ranges from light to deep. IMHO, the shades “dark” and “deep” are a bit similar.
Importantly, I found that the shades are more warm-toned shades than cool, and the contour for the “light” stick pulls a bit orange. I’d describe the shades as “golden”. I’m a cool-toned gal with pink undertones, so “light” wasn’t perfect for me but with my red hair it worked!
I love that PUR includes a pamphlet with a “how-to” diagram for highlighting and contouring for those of us who still need a little direction.
It was so useful in letting me know there are other places to contour and highlight in addition to my cheekbones and along my nose. I need to try the highlight and contour under the bottom lip next time.
Here’s a hideous photo of me with the contour and highlighting on my face before blending! Don’t judge.
And here’s the after. I think it’s a subtle look.
I found PUR Cameo Contour relatively easy to use. It’s a thick cream that blends quite easily. A little goes a long way. My only suggestion to PUR might be to make the stick a little narrower if they ever update the line.
I didn’t swatch the 4 sticks that I’m giving away because I want them to be pristine for the winners. Instead I took photos of the colors. I hope that will help you see the shade range.
PUR Cameo Contour contains 0.3 oz./8.6 g and is made in the US although the sponge is made in China. $39.50. It is sold at Ulta Beauty and on the PUR Minerals website. PUR Minerals products are cruelty-free.
