As a beauty fanatic I love trying out and discovering new brands - and recently I came across PUR Cosmetics, and tested out their Best Sellers Kit (which you can read all about here), and really loved their products - so needless to say that when some of their newer releases landed on my desk, I was naturally very excited. 

If you're not familiar with PUR Cosmetics, then you must know that it is a U.S mineral makeup range that harsh underlying purpose of making products formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients that not only help cover skin imperfections but also help correct its overall appearance. 

First up there's the PUR Cosmetics Air Perfection CC Cushion Foundation. This foundation has a massive SPF50, which you can only applaud it for when you live in a country like Australia. The actual foundation is infused with anti-ageing amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and advanced botanical problem solvers, and also contains Brazil Babassu Oil to soften and soothe irritated skin for a soft, dewy complexion.

The foundation has an extremely light mousse-like texture, and the included sponge makes it so easy to apply and blend. It gives the skin a sheer coverage, as you'd expect from a CC Foundation, but it can easily be build up to a medium coverage, while still looking very natural. This means that it does cover minor redness and pigmentation, although I do fee the need to use a concealer to cover the dark circles under my eyes, and larger areas of darker pigmentation. The actual foundation comes in a white compact with an internal mirror, and as such it looks like most other cushion foundations. It has a lovely, but subtle floral fragrance that you can only love.

Overall I really love this Air Perfection CC Cushion Foundation, it really is light as air, and as it also gives the skin a lovely matte finish, it is perfect for my combination skin too, also because it doesn’t contain any petroleum-based oils that can clog up the pores. My skin also loves the fact that while it does contain hydrating properties, it is still so light that it doesn’t make my skin look shiny or oily throughout the day. This is the perfect foundation for a casual every day makeup. At $59 it is at the higher end of the scale for a foundation - but then again, it actually comes with a full sized bonus refill, which then suddenly makes it very well priced.

Next there's the PUR Cosmetics Mineral Glow Bronzer, which like all other PUR products, is no ordinary bronzer. You see, this bronzer has added shea butter to help soothe and moisturise the skin, along with ceratin complex, AHA and retinol to help add hydrating ceramides to the skin and help to smooth lines and wrinkles. Normally I don't like shimmery bronzers - mainly because I find they are often too glittery, plus they make my combination skin look shiny and consequently greasy, so I was a little wary when I saw this bronzer. But I was pleasantly surprised. This bronzer gives the most gorgeous natural tan and healthy looking glow, and without looking orange or fake. It is super easy to apply and blend and works perfectly for contouring too. It goes on sheer, but you can easily build up the intensity if you like. It simply gives you the most gorgeous radiant glow. 

Finally, there's the PUR Cosmetics Sun-Kissed Strobe Palette. This gorgeous palette is quite different in packaging to the other products - I mean, the cushion compact is white, the bronzer silver, yet this palette comes in a sleek, slim black and gold compact with a magnetic closure and internal mirror and it simply that oozes luxury - and hence, without a doubt, my favourite packaging of the three. And I never can resist beautifully packaged products.

The palette contains three iridescent highlighting shades to illuminate, define and flatter your face and achieve the perfectly strobed look. The shades are light and creamy and all super concentrated, so you only need the tiniest amount. And they simply glide onto your skin, quickly and easily, and are super fast to blend seamlessly too, giving you such a gorgeous illuminated buildable dewy glow.

The palette contains three complementary self-setting cream-to-powder shades, Aurora, Solar, and Dusk. Aurora is the palest shade, a warm beige shade, while Solar is a dusty rosy pink shade, and Dusk is a golden bronze shade.

The shades can be used to high points of the face, such as top of the cheeks, brow bone, or above the cupids bow for an instant glow. I have a medium beige skin tone, and these shades all work so well with my skin tone, but I believe the shades will work well with most skin tones as the shades simply melt onto the skin, and simply leave the skin looking more radiant and glowing, without depositing too much colour.

So yet again I am super impressed with these products from PUR Cosmetics. They are simply of such high quality and I love the fact that they contain skin caring ingredients as well. Definitely highly recommended.
