Start your year with PÜR Cosmetics for some purely great skincare and cosmetics

There are so many products from #PURBEAUTY that get overlooked in our rush to share the latest and greatest. Since it’s a new year we decided that it’s time to share some of these with you to start the year off properly. We have 5 products that get overlooked but shouldn’t.                                                                     samples

SKINCARE:

There are three steps in the PÜR skincare family. Step one is In The Clear Clarifying Cleanser.

PÜR In The Clear Clarifying Cleanser

PÜR In The Clear Clarifying Cleanser

“Clear skin starts here. In The Clear is a multi-action cleanser that gently exfoliates with lactic acid, clarifies with tea tree oil and soothes extra oily, irritable and problem-prone skin. This clarifying cleanser calms and cools with lavender, peppermint and aloe vera, and is never harsh or over-drying.”

Step 2 is PÜR Dirty Girl, a great detoxifying mudd masque.

PÜR Dirty Girl

PÜR Dirty Girl

Marcia says: This is a great mudd masque. It contains Pascalite Clay which really helps to detoxify skin. It’s great for pore cleansing. I get clogged pores which make them look larger than I prefer so using a mud masque is perfect for clarifying them and keeping the ickies at bay.

PÜR Dirty Girl

PÜR uses soothing botanicals along with this detoxifying pascalite clay. It contains Calcium Bentonite to unclog pores and eliminate impurities; Cucumber Extract to soothe and calm the skin; and Salicylic Acid to gently exfoliate and renew.

It dries down quickly. It doesn’t crack off though it does feel dry once set. You decide how long you want to keep it on – from 5 to 20 minutes. I usually leave it on for 10 minutes.

I have to use a washcloth to completely remove it and then follow with a toner like Step 3.

Step 3 is Miracle Mist, to hydrate and set.

Pur Cosmetics Miracle Mist Hydrate and Set

Lisa says: Miracle Mist is a hydrating spray that also helps set makeup. It has over 70 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids to pamper your skin. I find that I prefer it for setting mineral makeup over any other type of makeup – it’s pretty impressive for giving a polished appearance, giving mineral foundation and eyeshadow a fresh appearance and extending wear time.

Benefits:

  • Contains over 70 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids
  • Instantly infuses the skin with vital moisture
  • Soothes and refreshes dry skin and hair with fulvic acid
  • Locks down mineral makeup for all-day perfection

If you have extremely dry skin this is a great product. It’s also very helpful for those times when powder makeup looks a little too powdery. If you need lots of hydration and love mineral makeup, Miracle Mist is effective, refreshing, and convenient to use.

Now that you know about these skincare items there’s a set that you can get to try them all out. It’s a PÜR Skincare Starter Set at ULTA that is only $29 and contains Simplicity Soothing Gentle Cleanser (0.5 oz.), Soak It Up Intense Hydrating Moisturizer (0.5 oz.), Miracle Mist Hydrate & Set (1.0 oz.), and Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque (0.5 oz.). A great way to start a new year and refresh your skin.

COSMETICS:

Lisa says: While Marcia is getting her skin care on, I am getting my makeup on with PUR Volume Vixen 4-in-1 Full Volume Mascara with Keratin and Chateau Kisses Lip Gloss in Glitzy.

Volume Vixen 4-in-1 Full Volume Mascara with KeratinVolume Vixen 4-in-1 Full Volume Mascara with KeratinVolume Vixen 4-in-1 Full Volume Mascara with Keratin ($21): This is my go-to mascara. I only need one coat for tons of drama. I love the separation, the fullness, and the length – plus this jet black mascara doesn’t smudge. I also love how my lashes are soft, not stiff, which I think is a much more attractive look. Do lashes really look as good as false eyelashes like the claim? Not really, but they are as close as I’ve ever gotten with a mascara. This is a real winner.
Chateau Kisses Lip Gloss in GlitzyChateau Kisses Lip Gloss in GlitzyChateau Kisses Lip Gloss in Glitzy

Chateau Kisses Lip Gloss in Glitzy ($18):  I love this lip gloss. It has wonderful slip without being sticky, and the color lasts a nice long time. I think Glitzy has just enough shimmer to make my lips look bigger without looking like I am trying too hard. Isn’t Glitzy a gorgeous shade? There are seven more shades available and I swear I want every single one.

Marcia says: One last cosmetic item that just never gets talked about are Perfect Fit eyeshadow trios. There are a dozen different trios to provide beautiful colors for your eyes. Whether you like greens, browns, purples, or brights there’s a set for you. I have Wild Child which fits into my cosmetic life perfectly.

PÜR Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio in Wild Child

PÜR Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio in Wild Child

I buy too many neutrals so having this purple toned trio is a great change of pace and a reminder of why I wore purple on my eyes for years and years. With built-in firming ingredients and light-diffusing mineral spheres, each shade helps create a velvety smooth, crease-free finish.  My new favorite way to wear shadow is to use the darkest shade buffed smoothly onto my lid, take the middle shade from the lid up into the crease, and apply a highlight shade on my browbone. Wild Child fits perfectly. I love the lighter purple to give the illusion of lift. I use the highlight shade too in the inner tear duct. This is just right to give me the cool toned purples I like.

The Air Perfection Foundation is a favorite of mine. This cushion compact foundation convinced me that the cushion is far more than a gimmick and I’ve repurchased it twice. It comes with a refill, and the foundation is fragrance-free. The Double Ego Eyeliner in Tasmania is outstanding. I love using black eyeliner on my upper lid and brown on my lower, so this is perfect! The pencil side is great for the waterline too. The Berry Pretty Lip Gloss Stick is indeed pretty and you can layer it for deeper color. The Volume Vixen Mascara is the only mini-sized product and it’s a wonderful mascara that creates long, thick lashes. The brush has a full side and a flat side, making it great for both upper and lower lashes.

Pur Eye Polish will bring shine to your eyes on New Year’s Eve and ever after

pur logo

PÜR Cosmetics

PUR Cosmetics has everything you need to make your special evenings out more beautiful. One of my new favorites (sent for review) is their EYE POLISH. This double duty product is just what the doctor ordered for a night out.

Pur Cosmetics Eye Polish in Champagne and Satin

Pur Cosmetics Eye Polish in Champagne and Satin

Pur Cosmetics Eye Polish comes in 6 beautiful shades that can be used as a crease proof eyeshadow primer or alone as an iridescent lightweight cream eyeshadow. I have two shades, Cashmere and Satin, and love the unusual texture of them.

Pur Cosmetics Cashmere Eye Polish packaging

Pur Cosmetics Cashmere Eye Polish packaging

Let’s start with the packaging –  this is a midsize short jar with the top of the jars being colors that match the color within. Open it and you’ll find a mesh covering for the liquid eyeshadow polish. Shake and press down with your finger or a brush to pick up the color. You’ll feel a coolness to the shadow at first. These dry down quickly but not instantly. There’s enough time for you to pat it on your lid in the intensity you want before it dries down totally. They come with a small silicone applicator (which I didn’t receive) that helps pick up the shadows easily and makes application easy.

The 6 shades are

  • Satin – Sheer Crystal Pink
  • Suede – Earthy Seductive Neutral
  • Cashmere – Shimmery Champagne
  • Silk – Prism Copper
  • Velvet – Plush Amethyst
  • Caviar – Lavish Black with Gold Karat Flecks

Satin is the brighter of the two I have and the more iridescent. Satin has a pink cast to it but I wouldn’t call it a true pink. It’s light enough and bright enough to create shine that stands out. I like using it with Pur’s Secret Crush Palette (reviewed here) with the cooler shades. Champagne is more golden and not quite as shiny. It’s just gorgeous with neutrals and browns/bronzes. Both appear shimmery yet they stay in place. You won’t get glitter on your face with these.

These are incredible products and I can’t wait to pick up Caviar to see how the darker shades look. I know they wear beautifully. No extra primer is needed since Eye Polish has it all. — Marcia

Did you ever have a secret crush? Pur Cosmetics has the best Secret Crush for adults

Pur Minerals Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette

Pur Minerals Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette

What are your memories of your secret crushes? When I received Pur Cosmetics Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette for review my memories came back in full force. Back in high school I had a crush on several boys but one in particular was on my mind all the time. He was a year or two ahead of me and he didn’t know I existed. I made it a point to walk by his classes and his locker all the time but I doubt he ever saw me. My crush finally dissipated after he graduated and I found someone else to crush on. Two years ago I went to a reunion and there he was! My sister knew who he was and told me to turn around. OMG, my heart was pounding.  But what I saw was a balding man with a gut too big for his frame. Crush truly dissipated and gone forever.

It’s been replaced with the gorgeous Pur Cosmetics Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette now and I’m finally being noticed! This palette is like a crush come true. 8 beautiful shadows with 4 of them being metallics. My secret is out and I’m in love.

Pur Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette

Pur Secret Crush Eye Shadow Palette

The 8 shadows range from matte to a light almost invisible shimmer to metallic hues. The matte shades are good but not exceptional since they don’t have an even pigmentation to them. But I’ve never been a huge fan of matte so I may not be the best to judge. What does stand out though are the metallic hues since they are outstandingly pigmented and long lasting. They are not to be missed.

From left:

*Whisper an ivory shade with just the smallest amount of shimmer to it. The shimmer doesn’t have fall out though, it just gives this ivory shade some interest, especially on the browbone.

* Lust has a slight pink undertone and a matte finish

* Passion is a stunner especially if you love rose gold. This is probably the shiniest of the metallics

* Muse is a chocolate brown that’s shimmery but not sparkly, it is close to metallic but not quite

Whisper, Lust, Passion and Muse

Whisper, Lust, Passion and Muse

* Infatuation has a metallic finish and is warm bronze

* Admirer is another metallic and this one is more of a neutral brown

* Rendezvous is a matte that is a neutral to cool brown

* Rumor is a charcoal with a matte finish

Rumor, Rendevous, Admirer, and Infatuation

Rumor, Rendezvous, Admirer, and Infatuation

I’ve been wearing Secret Crush several days a week because there are so many possible combinations. Today for example I wore Muse on my lid with Lust on the browbone. We went out for dinner so I added Rumor to create a cat eye and smudged it over my Pur Minerals Double Ego eyeliner in Tasmania. Saturday night we went out with a group and I got to get dressed up for a change. My EOTD consisted of the stunning and sparkly Pur Eye Polish in Satin (light pink) with Admirer in the crease and some of the matte Rendevous blended into the outer corner. I felt terrific in the combination.

I have to mention the brush in this palette since it’s surprisingly nice. I rarely even remember that an applicator has come in a palette since I’ve never counted on them before. But this brush is not only usable but one that you’d use often. It’s wider than most palette brushes and applies the shadows evenly plus it’s great for blending. A definite asset.

The shadows in Pur Secret Crush last so well on me. I love that I have no fallout when I apply these and that they make it throughout an entire day (with an eye primer of course) without fading. Plus the sturdy palette is perfect for traveling.

Even if you’ve never had a secret crush, you still have time to have one with Pur. I won’t tell what’s making you look so great but I’ll know. — Marcia

Makeup Wars perks up your eyes

MAKEUP WARS is all about eyes today, expanding from the typical to the somewhat atypical. Ways to perk up your eye makeup can be as simple or bold as wearing a colorful mascara as well as changing up your eyeliner from your typical black or dark brown. I’ve chosen my favorite colorful eyeliners to share with you since a day without eyeliner for me is a day my eyes disappear.

STILA GOT INKED CUSHION EYE LINER is my new favorite eyeliner. Yes I do play favorites and right now the play is with these very cool cushion eye liners. This is a liquid eyeliner unlike any you’ve used. It comes in a pot with the liquid under a cushion top. Use your favorite brush (I prefer a very thin one) and press it onto the webbed sponge top and you’ve got your color. Stila compares it to using a calligraphy pen that you dip into the sponge. These don’t seem like they’ll spill. I first bought it in Smoky Quartz Ink and after using it twice I knew I needed another so along came Copper Ink. Both are within my comfort zone but on the edge of it. You can go thick or thin, you can draw cat eyes, you can do anything your heart desires and the color will last. It comes in 6 shades (Black Obsidian, Amethyst, Blue Sapphire, Garnet plus Smoky Quartz and Copper).

Stila Got Inked Cushion Eye Liners

Stila Got Inked Cushion Eye Liners

Smoky Quartz Ink is a pewter taupe that is metallic and will take on the colors of your eye makeup depending on the light. While there’s no glitter in it, it looks that way because of the high shine. When I wear this with a gold and khaki combination it seems to pick up that khaki undertone. Copper Ink isn’t quite as metallic but it’s far from flat. It’s stunning with a variety of browns but when it really looks unique is wearing it with eyeshadow in the navy family. Copper Ink is making me shop my stash for new looks.

I’m a huge fan of liquid eyeliners but they are not all created equal. The length and sturdiness of the brush are the keys for me finding the ones I love. While I don’t wear pencil eyeliners that often I’ve found that Pur Minerals (now Pur Cosmetics) has a combination that has the best of both worlds. DOUBLE EGO EYELINERS are liquid on one end and pencil on the other end. Use separately or combine for great looks.

Pur Minerals Double Ego liners

Pur Minerals Double Ego liners

Look at those colors! Milan (inky black), Tasmania (dark chocolate), Madagascar (black gold), Bora Bora (royal blue), Swiss Alps (cool pewter), Rio de Janeiro (deep plum), Bali (emerald green), and Queensland (aquatic teal). While I mostly wear Tasmania I’ve been known to wear Swiss Alps (pewter) and Rio de Janiero (plum) to shake it up a bit. These are amazing eyeliners.

Last but far from least on my list are the YOUNGBLOOD EYE-MAZING LIQUID EYELINER PENS. These are available in 5 shades that are beautiful and go beyond black. The brush is what makes these so wonderful. For me they glide on and last, rarely going astray. I’ve bought backups of Marron since it’s an amazing brown eyeliner. Gris (soft grey) and Verde (dark forest green) are unique to my eyeliner collection.

Your fall lips want Pur Minerals Lip Lure – they really do!

There’s never a bad time to buy a new lipstick but fall is the absolutely perfect time for it. There’s something about the sun going down earlier and earlier, the air becoming brisk, the temperatures dropping, and the leaves turning that makes you realize a new season is truly upon us. Besides changing our clothing, we suddenly feel the need to change our makeup – especially our lips.

For me the perfect solution is Pur Minerals Lip Lure. I wrote about these in Top Ten Tuesday since they are my favorite lip product that I’ve tried for fall. Typically I like light shades but with the crispness in the air I’m suddenly craving real color. Just take a look at these swatches:

Pur Minerals Lip Lure in Belle, Graceful, and Fancy

Pur Minerals Lip Lure in Belle, Graceful, and Fancy

I was sent 3 of Pur Minerals Lip Lures in Belle, Graceful and Fancy and there’s something very special about them. While the current trend is to wear matte lipsticks, I don’t feel they are flattering to everyone. I have small lips that are lined and very few matte lipsticks look good on me. PUR MINERALS LIP LURE are a hydrating lip lacquer that not only looks good on my lips but feels good on them too. While they start out shiny they do dry down to an almost matte finish. Adding a clear or light lipgloss over them brings back any shine lost.

Pur Minerals Lip Lure

There are 5 shades of Lip Lure and all are perfect for the season ($22 each): Fiery  http://www.purminerals.com/assets/3/product_variant_images/1470/thumb/Lip-Lure-Fiery-Swatch-72dpi.jpgBelle http://www.purminerals.com/assets/3/product_variant_images/1471/thumb/Lip-Lure-Belle-Swatch-72dpi.jpg, Fiery , Graceful , and Mystic .

You start with a flocked sponge applicator that applies the lip lacquer evenly and softly. It takes a few clicks to get the color flowing. I don’t find that I need to use that much of the lip color to get the desired effect.

GRACEFUL is the softest shade of the 5. It’s a nude that has enough color to give your lips some life.  This is the shade I’ve gotten the most compliments on.

BELLE is an ultra creamy soft peachy mauve shade on me. I know that sounds like a weird combination but I see both shades when I wear it. It’s not warm and it’s not a cool shade so it must be a neutral shade! Pur calls this a “natural beige with a hint of romance” but I only see the romance, I don’t see the beige.

FANCY is described as a lustrous mauve but it’s redder on me than a typical mauve.

The two other shades are Fiery described as a fierce siren and Mystic described as a ripe blackberry with a hint of raspberry. No lip product lasts on me for long but these last longer than most. Plus they leave a subtle stain behind so that it looks like I have some color left. They really are richly pigmented. More to love about these lovely hydrating Lip Lures is that there’s no scent or taste. Plus Pur Minerals is cruelty-free.

If it’s time to switch to fall shades (and you know it is) you need to consider Pur Minerals Lip Lure to give your life a little extra beauty. Which color is your favorite? — Marcia

Top 10 Fall lips

Favorite Fall lips

Favorite Fall lips

The calendar tells us that it’s Fall. It’s a mixed blessing in many ways. Pumpkin Spice lovers will be thrilled with the amount of products that are now available. Cider Mills are open with that delicious fresh cider and tantalizing doughnuts. The leaves are starting to change and the colors will be spectacular. We’ll try to ignore how dark it is by 7:30 p.m. and that we need shorts in the day and a parka at night. But what we won’t ignore is the chance to change your lipstick wardrobe. Top Ten Tuesday is here to give you some suggestions of some lips to wear.

My personal favorites are the new PUR MINERALS LIP LURE LIQUID LIPSTICKS *. I have three of the five available and they are perfect for this time of year. These are very pigmented and the colors last for a long time. They are bucking the trend of matte (which is fine for me), instead saturating your lips with color while leaving them feel moisturized. ($22 each, full review coming up)

Another brand of lipstick that is new in my life is SLEEK MAKEUP, TRUE COLOR LIPSTICK *. These lipsticks come in either Sheen or Matte finishes for just $7.49. They are extremely creamy and feel great on my lips. Happily they are fragrance free. When you look these up on Sleek’s website they describe the lipsticks as well as give suggestions for which eyeshadow palette and blush would look great with them. More to come on Sleek MakeUP soon!

I like Nude lipsticks and find that there can be a difference between a summer nude and a fall nude. We all have different interpretations of nude and mine is a light shade but with fall I’ll go deeper. Three of my favorite nudes are Sleek MakeUP Succumb, Tom Ford Sable Smoke, and Charlotte Tilbury Penelope Pink.

Sleek Succumb is a brownish nude with pink undertones that looks much more pink on me than my swatch. Tom Ford Sable Smoke is a creamy peachy brown that’s not dark and can look different depending on which lipliner I use. Charlotte Tilbury Penelope Pink is the pinkest of the bunch but it’s not pink.

Dark lips aren’t easy for me to comfortably wear but I do love having some for those special times when I need to look more grown up. You never know when a plum, red, or brown red lipstick is going to up your game. Here are the ones in my collection:

VOTRE VU TATIANA * is a tomato red that I apply with a lip brush to get a softer look. SLEEK CHERRY is a deep vampy red. MELANIE MILLS GLEAM * in Unstoppable is a bright cherry red (photo doesn’t share the true red of this beauty. RIMMEL PROVOCALIPS * in PLAY WITH FIRE is a two sided liquid lipstick that’s a long wearing formula. It’s a beautiful true dark red with a clear sparkly gloss on the opposite end. PIXI BEAUTY MATTELUSTRE PLUM BERRY * is a hybrid of matte and lustre. This is a plummy red that doesn’t show lip lines like a true matte does.
