Today I am going to talk about a brand that is completely new to me, Pur Minerals, putting the Best Sellers Kit to the test. The products from Pur Minerals are eco friendly, with the brand committed to using natural and responsibly sourced ingredients full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals - all put together so they not only look great on your skin, but also nourish and help treat any skin concerns at the same time.

If you're new to a brand, trial kits with sample sized products are always fantastic, as it allows you to try several products without the expense of getting full sized products. The Pur Minerals Best Sellers Kit 5-piece beauty-to-go Collections contains five of the brand's most popular products for you to try, and even a little how-to guide in case you need it. The kit includes;  
  • Correcting Primer Prep & Perfect - 10ml
  • 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup - 4.3g
  • Mineral Glow Bronzer - 3.4g
  • Chisel Brush
  • Big Look Mascara with Argan Oil - 5g
The Correcting Primer contains ingredients such as shea butter and vitamin B3, as well as salicylic acid, which is perfect for my breakout prone combination skin, as it helps to unclog the pores - a refreshing change from primers which I often find clog my pores up! But using this primer means that it helps keep the skin free from imperfections, while also improving its elasticity and evening out the skin tone by lightening dark spots. The light primer is easy to apply, and really leaves the skin soft and smooth and hydrated too, and makes it so easy to apply your foundation, which also stays looking fresh for longer with the use of this primer. I am so in love with it, that I have to get my hands on a full sized tube.
The second step is the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup, which is a foundation, powder, concealer and sun protector all-in-one. And to be perfectly honest, I admit that I am not usually a fan of powdered foundations, mainly as I often feel that I cannot get the coverage I need, and when I try to build it up, it turns dry and cakey. But this one has me convinced otherwise.
The powder foundation is applied with the included Chisel brush, by circular motions, and layering as needed. I tried the shade Golden Medium, which is a good match for my medium beige, slightly summer-tanned skin tone. The foundation is very light, and gives a nice medium coverage, but you can easily build it up slightly too so it also covers most pigmentation and redness, while still looking natural.
The Chisel Brush is so soft and gorgeous, and designed to apply the pressed foundation as the top is a flat-headed brush that makes it blending it into the skin seamless.
The third step is the Mineral Glow, which is a mineral bronzer that adds glow and radiance to the skin. The shade is a nice medium shade and it has a lovely golden glow, without being too shiny or glittery, but rather just a touch of shimmer that adds such a gorgeous healthy and luminous sun-kissed glow. For once a bronzer that doesn’t make your skin look orange, but rather gives it such a natural glow. It can also be applied using the Chisel Brush.
The final step is the Big Look Mascara, which is actually a full sized product, making this kit great value. The mascara comes in a gorgeous pink packaging, reminiscent of a lip gloss, and I must admit that I thought it was at first sight!
The mascara has spiky plastic bristles that easily grabs every single lash, even the tiny ones in the corners of the eye, and gives them both length, thickness and curl, and separates them nicely too - and from the very first use. Not one of those mascaras that is absolutely hopeless for the first dozen uses clogging your lashes together. But rather it gives your lashes a lovely fanned look. I also like that you can build it up for quite dramatic lashes, and the fact that the mascara has been infused with argan oil so that it protects the lashes and hydrates them at the same time. No wonder this mascara is a best seller!
Overall I have really enjoyed putting these products from Pur Minerals to the test. They are lovely to use, make the skin look great. I particularly loved the Primer which is so perfect for my combination skin, the bronzer which gives my skin such a radiant glow, and then the mascara, which was just great from the word go. I also loved using the Chisel Brush, and know I'll be using it over and over. That actually only leaves the Foundation - and while I did enjoy using it, and find the little compact great when you're on the go, I'm still more partial to liquid foundations, and wouldn't mind putting a few from their range to the test.
