Pur Cosmetics are one of my favorite brands. They always are releasing new, fun and innovative cosmetics and skincare. I received these new products for my honest review.
This weekend, if you shop on their website you can get 50% off the whole site (except for the mystery bag). I am going to give the retail price of these items, but they will be half that this weekend with the code MEMDAY50 on purcosmetics.com.
I have wanted this as soon as it came out, so I’m excited I got to try it! It’s the 4-in-1 Blush Book ($36) — This is such a cool palette. It is huge and has four full sized blushes in it. The pans are removable so they can be used in a z-palette. My shade called Passionate came a bit broken, and it’s worse now. I have to be careful of the palette, I can’t throw it around! But it’s a pretty color and I still use it.
The blush is formulated with vitamins and botanical extracts and is long-wearing. Each pan has 3 complimentary shades. You can use them separately, or swirl them together. Here’s swatches of each pan swirled together:
From left to right is Honest, Passionate, Determined and Loyal. I find myself reaching for Honest and Passionate, but Loyal is gorgeous, too! I have to have the right makeup on to use that one because it’s shimmery and bold. Loyal is pretty, but a little deep for my skin tone. I think there is a shade for almost every skin tone in this palette. The blush formula is very smooth and blend well.
This is a tiny eye shadow set called On-the-Go Eyeshadow Palettes ($14 USD). You get both the Day and the Night palettes. They are small, you can see the scale in the below photo as I hold the Night palette in my hand.
This is the Day palette. This feels more cool toned to me, but there are a couple of warm shades in it. This is very work appropriate
The Night palette is very warm toned. This can be used to create a really dramatic evening look with the bottom row, but the top row can make a nice day look too.
Here are my swatches:
This is the Day palette. As you can see, the two shimmery shades are not showing up well on my arm. But they do look nice on the eye.
These swatched better, and also look nice on the eyes. The formulas of these eye shadows are very butter and pigmented. There is not a lot of kick up in the pan or fall out on the eye. They blend well, too.
I think these are very travel friendly and so affordable. Plus, if you get the set on sale this weekend, it will only be $7!
Now, to apply this fun makeup, I use the Essentials Brush Set ($39 USD). These brushes are very soft and densely packed. The packaging and handles are a little industrial for my taste, but they are pretty cool looking.
