Brand Review — PUR Cosmetics

PUR Cosmetics is a great brand that includes good-for-your-skin ingredients that not only help cover skin imperfections but also help correct its overall appearance. Plus, their products are very on-trend and gorgeous!

I was sent some amazing products for my honest review.  Here’s what I think:

Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette ($34 USD) Creating a flawless eye look is super simple if you have the perfect mix of neutral, copper and bronze shades handy. Now you can turn everyday and night into a soiree with this super versatile 12-piece eye shadow collection. Filled with highly pigmented and silky smooth shadows, the four versatile matte shades, four satin shades and four shimmers work flawlessly together for all skin tones. Super blendable and anything but basic, this essential palette takes the guesswork out of your eye look. Just use the colors in the vertical rows from top to bottom for highlight, definition and drama.

What I think:  These colors are very pigmented and pretty, for a neutral eye look.  I like the different finishes and looks that I can create.  Currently, I have a lot of natural palettes and am loving a bit more color, but this is great for every day looks!

Contour Diaries Contour Palette ($32 USD) — you too can sculpt and define your makeup story. Featuring three super creamy and blendable shades for contouring and three luminious shades for highlighting, this 6-piece contour and highlight palette makes it easy to accentuate like a pro. The lighter shades are used to draw soft, “lit from within” attention to the high points of the face and help brighten the dark shadows that may lurk under the eyes. The darker shades create faux shadows that chisel your cheekbones or slenderize other facial features. These buildable powders are mixable and customizable to create the right highlight and dimension for every skin tone. Get truly envious features instantly.

What I think:  This is a great contouring palette.  The shades blend so well for contouring.  I have fair skin, so I would liked it if the lighter shades were a bit lighter, but the darker shades work nicely on my skin!

Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick

Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick ($18 USD) — Dump those dry matte lipsticks. Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks provide sumptuous lip color in an innovative mousse texture that glides on with ease and coats lips in a rich and conditioning burst of color in a true matte finish. Designed with color perfecting technology, the formula does not flake or dry lips and provides a smooth and flawless finish. Soft, kissable lips and bold colour – it’s everything you want in a matte.

What I think:  These come is a great range of pretty shades.  They last a long time and are very nicely pigmented.  Like a lot of liquid matte lippies, they are a bit drying on, but they stay put all day!

No Filter Blurring Photography Primer

No Filter Blurring Photography Primer ($33 USD) — Moisturize, color balance, prime and illuminate the skin in one step. This unique primer with prismatic blurring micro-pearls helps to color correct while age-defying skin care ingredients nourishes the skin and a vitamin-rich Energy Complex with moisturizing agave and essential fatty acids prep the skin for makeup application. Loaded with essential oils like Coconut, Olive, and Shea a drop of this into your foundation will result in a dewy yet shine-free finish that boosts radiance and masks imperfections for a picture-perfect complexion.

What I think:  This is such a pretty primer.  It smooths my skin and gives it a soft glow.  I love it under powder foundation, because it gives some hydration and make skin look glowy, not dry.  It also helps foundation stay all day.

Melt Away Makeup Emulsifier

Melt Away Makeup Emulsifier ($23 USD) — Melt away makeup and nourish the skin with this gentle yet highly effective makeup remover for all skin types. Over a dozen natural oils and extracts combine to dissolve all traces of makeup including stubborn waterproof and long-wear makeup! Melt Away breaks down dirt, pigment and excess oils to keep skin looking clean, clear and radiantly shine-free!

What I think:  This oil-based cleanser takes everything off!  That’s so important in summer because of all the waterproof makeup I use.  Once I cleanse my skin, it’s really hydrated and soft.  It also has a natural, herbal scent. I like that it has natural oils that are so good for my skin!

Blue Agave Mask

Blue Agave Mask ($26 USD) — Give your skin an energizing boost with this ultra-refreshing blue agave mask. An Energy Complex of green tea, ginseng and Vitamin B helps stimulate the skin’s natural metabolism for the look of plumper, hydrated and refreshed skin. The cooling sensation and uplifting scent will leave your skin feeling totally revived.

What I think:  I love this super-fun mask! To use it, I apply a generous amount on my face (avoiding my eyes).  It takes about 15-20 minutes to dry down to a shimmery turquoise blue.  Then it’s ready to peel off.  It peels off easily and leaves my skin very smooth and glowing!
