Pur Minerals Cheek Stains – soft, cool and lovable

pur minerals stick blushes

Have you ever seen anything so cute? When I saw these Pur Minerals Cabernet Cheek Stains I couldn’t help but crave them and happily I was sent two to try out. In my world cream blushes rule and I already knew that Pur Minerals knew what to do with them when I wear the two Chateau Cream Blushes that I have.

What makes these unique is that these blush tints have an attached brush on the opposite end. It makes it so handy for travel purposes. I had these in my cosmetic bag the entire holiday weekend since I was on the go more than usual. Not only are the colors beautiful but the brush makes them apply easier than ever. The brush is soft and feels lush on your cheeks. You’ll want to use it with other blushes too.

The Cheek Stains are described by Pur Minerals as “Blush Tint and Brush Duo” ($26). I think that’s a better description than stain. The sticks go on with a refreshing coolness that is irresistible. I love the way they feel upon application. The colors aren’t as intense as I’d expect from something called a stain. Instead they are easy to wear shades that look so pretty once applied.

There are 4 shades available: Prosecco is a beautiful rose shade that will show up darker than Rose’ that I have.

Cabernet is a wine shade that appears to be quite cool toned.

Rose’ is a baby pink that’s almost Barbie Pink but it’s such a soft and flattering color that it doesn’t remind me of a doll.

Peach Bellini is the only warm shade in the group but it’s not overly warm. It looks like a slightly scary orange in the tube yet in actuality it’s a gentle peach that isn’t too dark.

Cheek Stains have a dewy glow. They contain skincare benefits with anti-oxidant wine extract to help with signs of aging.  Besides being cool to the touch, easy to use with luscious shades they also have a fruity fragrance that reminds me of bubble gum. I notice the fragrance at first but within about 10 minutes it’s gone.

These are blush sticks that I can easily recommend for you and in the lighter shades they’d be great for a teen since they are almost impossible to overdo. Pur Minerals is found on their website as well as at Ulta stores and online.

    I’ve tried lots of Pur Minerals samples but I haven’t purchased anything yet. The cheek stains are very cute and I’m a cream blush lover. But I’m not sure I would need that brush since I usually just rub in a cream blush with my fingers.

    These are super cute! I they they would be perfect for me b/c I tend to get heavy handed with blush.

  9. Robin W | 7th Jul 15

    I have never worn a cream blush before. I had trouble with application back in the day and never tried again. But I really like the idea of using the brush with them. Haven’t tried this brand, but would def try these.

  10. Kimberly | 7th Jul 15

    What an interesting concept. Taking one on vacation or for travel would be perfect.
