With this foundation pack, you can pick three colours for $12. I picked Maria, Sunkissed and Olive Beige, all in the Pure Mineral Powder Foundation range. These are specifically formulated for oily or sensitive skin, whilst the Skin Smoothing Range is for those with dry to slightly oil skin.
Five days later and I had my foundation pack. And look at how cute it is! I’ve never experienced such good packaging from a mineral makeup company before. Three adorable little pots, two Werther Originals sweets AND instructions on how to apply. Two thumbs up for Purely Cosmetics! Lollies and makeup make me happy!
Ok, so speedy service and beautiful packaging are one thing, but what about the performance? In a word? Awesome.
This foundation glided on easier than any other mineral makeup I have used before. Minimal buffing was required, and I most definitely did not need to wet my kabuki in order to work the foundation in like I normally do. It was like my skin and this foundation fell in love at first sight and did not want to be parted.
That wasn’t the best bit though (although it was pretty cool). The best bit was how this foundation made my skin feel. With other mineral foundations, I find my skin gets greasy and tacky after a few hours (and subsequently starts to come off on my hands). My skin is very oily so I just considered this a natural part of using mineral makeup.
While my skin still got oily (although not nearly as much as normal – I think I might try Purely’s Oil Absorb product – it, too, is supposed to be amazing), my makeup did not go tacky and greasy. My skin still felt soft and supple. A simple blotting was all it took to remove the oil, leaving the foundation firmly welded to my face and my skin feeling fantastic.
Another big plus of this product was the longevity. This foundation does not move, slip, melt or go grey. My makeup looked as fresh at 5pm as it did at 8am when it was first applied. For me, this is a big plus as I work in a busy corporate job and don’t have the time, or inclination, to be constantly redoing my makeup.
All up, Purely Cosmetics has become my HG mineral foundation. I am totally in love with the formulation, and how it makes my skin look and feel. If you have never tried mineral makeup before, or you are a battle worn veteran like myself, you should definitely try this. You will not be disappointed.
Pros: Lovely formulation, beautiful packaging, speedy customer service, long lasting
Cons: None – this really is a super product.
