As a beauty fanatic I love trying out and discovering new brands - and only recently I came across PÜR Cosmetics, and tested out their Best Sellers Kit (which you can read all about here), and as their Cushion Foundation, Bronzer and Strobe Palette (which you can read all about here) - and I really loved their products - so needless to say that when the PÜR Cosmetics Love Your Selfie 2 Face Palette landed on my desk, I was naturally very excited. 

If you're not familiar with PÜR Cosmetics, you seriously should get acquainted. The U.S mineral makeup range has the underlying goal of making products formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients that not only help cover skin imperfections but also help correct its overall appearance.

PÜR Cosmetics Love Your Selfie 2 Face Palette is a compact that is loaded with 13 of PÜR's best-selling products including;

  • Illuminating Highlighter in Photogenic, 2.2g 
  • Mineral Glow Bronzing Powder in Composition, 2.2g 
  • Baking Powder in Overexposed, 2.2g 
  • 8 eye shadows, including 2 matte, 6 shimmery 1g each 
  • Lip Gloss in Silhouette - Deluxe sample, 3.9g 
  • Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Focal Point, 1.9g 
  • Fully Charged Mascara - Deluxe sample, 5ml 

In short, this palette contains everything you'll need to take you from desk to dinner, and it even contains a how-to cards, with ideas for both day-time and night-time looks. 

Starting with eye shadows, are in a range of offers a very wearable neutral shades, as well as a few deeper and more shimmery shades perfect for night time. There are shades for base, for the crease, shimmery shades to enhance and highlight, and deeper colours to add intensity and drama. The shades are all very smooth and silky soft. They are also all quite pigmented and easy to apply and blend. They also wear well throughout the day, without settling into lines and creases, and with minimal fall out. The only shade I am not sure about is the burgundy shade 'Sketch', but other than that, all other shades are a perfect for someone like me, preferring muted neutral shades.

I have previously talked about the bronzer, which I really love (and you can read about here!), and while I am usually not fond of shimmery bronzers, I do love this Mineral Glow Bronzing Powder as it just has a tiny touch of sheen, giving your skin such a natural tanned look, making it look glowing and radiant. It is silky soft and easy to apply with a powder brush.

The Illuminating Powder in Photogenic is a pale pearly pinkish shade that leaves a lovely natural glow on the apples of your cheeks, while not being too shimmery or glittery, and it leaves your cheeks with a beautiful natural flushed look, perfect for winter-pale skin. The Baking Powder in Overexposed is a very pale dusty rose shade that is perfect for using on the top of the cheek bones. These three powders may not be intended for it, but you can naturally use these as eye shadows too.

Next is the Fully Charged Mascara, which contains among others a magnetic polymer matrix to lift and curl lashes. The large brush makes it easy to apply, and it separates the lashes nicely without any clumping, and just one coat gives a nice definition, length and curl great for day-time, while a few more coats adds more dramatic volume and length.

For the lips, there's the Lip Gloss in Silhouette, which is a medium mauve shade is perfect for day-time looks. It is quite pigmented and it applies smoothly with a beautiful shine, and it is infused wit a lip plumping technology that makes the lips appear fuller. It feels soft and creamy and moisturising on the lips, without being sticky. And because it is so pigmented, you can build it up to almost full intensity, or apply it more lightly for a more subtle look.

For night, there's the Lip Pencil in Focal Point which is a dark mauve shade which is absolutely stunning. It is soft and cream, and so easy to apply, and it leaves a gorgeous velvety matte finish on the lips, yet without feeling dry on the lips. The dark shade means that it has a good wear of several hours, and even when it fades, it does so evenly, leaving a nice stain on the lips.

This is really a very versatile palette, and it includes all the basics you need, plus a few extras that allow you to transform your makeup look from day to night. All the products are of high quality and very pigmented and feel so lovely to use and wear.

The actual palette is slightly bulky, which is however necessary to make room for the lip pencil, lip gloss and mascara, but does mean that you may find it too big for the handbag for everyday use. Personally I am rarely one for applying makeup on the go, so for me, it will be to be used at home, or take with me when travelling, for which I find it absolutely perfect. 

All the products are really lovely and of such high quality, and considering the amount of products that you get, this is extremely well priced, so I highly recommend you check out this palette. Personally I also really liked the mascara which I can imagine repurchasing, as well as I really liked the lip pencil, and would love to explore more different shades.
