Pur Minerals Review

I love Mineral makeup as you all know! But I REALLY loved Pur Minerals makeup. 
I was able to try out the Colour Correcting Foundation Primer. I have Rosacea and Eczema so my face is always red and dry and broke out. This really helped get rid of my redness of my rosacea. 
I also got to try the Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Spiced Barite. It's a little bit orangy for me so I gave it to my mom and she's liking it so far!
I also tried out the Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow in Clay! 
 Here is my Face BEFORE using the Primer, Fresh out of the shower when my rosacea is flared up most
 After Primer
 After Primer and FULL Bare Minerals Makeup routine
 Please excuse the need to be plucked eyebrows!
There's not a whole lot of difference, but it's enough that I can leave the house right away and not have to worry about my RED face. Normally I have to wait 20 minutes or so for the redness to go down!

I'm really happy with the Primer as I've already stated. It makes a difference and that's what I need. However, when my eczema is more flared up or my face is more dry, it does accentuate the dryness. The Primer will stick to my flakes more easily and it's noticeable. That's the only downfall though!

The eyeshadow is so natural in color you can't even tall I'm wearing it. But it's a good Primer for under my regular eye shadow and helps make them go on smoother
The lip gloss like I said I gave to my mom, but it went on smoothly and smelled really good too. It wasn't glossy like either, more like a smoother lip stick and stayed on. I couldn't even rub it off that well. Also my mom likes it and says she's gotten a couple compliments on it so far!

Price: Eye Shadow Singles are $14, but they last a LONG TIME! The primer is $31, but same thing. It will last a WHILE. The Glosses are $16. 
Overall: **** pretty good products and since they're mineral and all natural I'm happy and willing to pay a little more for them!
