Beauty Product Review : PUR Minerals Cosmetics

Mineral Makeup lines are popping up everywhere and they are becoming all the rage! I have been recently wearing the PUR Minerals makeup line which does wonders for your skin! I have been using the starter kit which comes with a Mineral Glow/Bronzer, that gives you a natural sun kissed glow,mineral pressed SPF foundation which is oil free, talc free and chemical free. You also get a Universal Marble Powder in Pink, that gives you a fresh faced rosy glow all day long. As well as the Chisel Makeup Brush that is THE brush to use when applying the 4 in 1 Mineral Makeup line which gives you a smooth finish!

PUR Minerals also carries a line of brushes, they are very soft and can be used without little or not hairs falling out. The perfect black enclosed pouch entails a Powder Makeup Brush, Blush Makeup Brush, Utility Makeup Brush, Eye Shadow Makeup Brush and Covered Lip Makeup Brush. I find the black pouch great for travelling or to throw in your purse for everyday use it's very convenient!
