Pur Minerals 5 Piece Start Now Kit Giveaway





Lots of makeup can make you look pretty, but how many can improve clarity or diminish the look of fine lines? More than just a get-the-look kit, Start Now! is an expressway to a naturally flawless complexion. In an eight-week clinical study, women of all ages saw an improvement in their skin’s appearance after using this five-piece kit. Up to 89 percent saw a smoother, softer appearance75 percent experienced visibly less irritation than before


Being almost 8 months pregnant, putting on makeup is much more of a hassle then before. Foundation, concealer, blush, eyeshadow, ugh such a process. The Pur Minerals 5 Piece Start Now Kit offers a complete look in 5 easy pieces. Now I've tried other "starter kits" in the past, and let's just say I wasn't very pleased with the results. I never felt the final look was "finished" and I always had to add more from my own stash. The Pur Minerals Start Now Kit includes the following:

4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup (.15 oz): Loose powders are so last year. Combining pure mineral pigment with the finest skin care ingredients, our all-in-one foundation, concealer, powder and SPF 15 has inspired generations of women to forget the mess and go pressed.

Neutral Primer (.3 fl oz): While most primers create the illusion of a more uniform complexion, our skin correcting formula contains special key ingredients that minimize the look of pores, dark spots and fine lines for a truly flawless makeup canvas.

Mineral Glow (.12 oz): Combining premium quality minerals with proven firming ingredients, Mineral Glow gives skin a natural-looking touch of sun with added skin care benefits.

Impact+ Mascara (.12 oz): Lengthen, thicken or curl—most mascaras give you just one option. Impact+ gives you all three, with the added benefit of extreme lash hydration for naturally healthier looking lashes.

Chisel Brush: Designed specifically for our 4-in-1 formula, this cruelty-free total coverage brush delivers an effortlessly even application every time. Also works with Pür specialty powders.






Step 1: Smooth Neutral Primer onto clean, moisturized skin and allow to dry.
Step 2: Using the Chisel Brush, apply 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup in circular motions to achieve an even and flawless finish. Layer as needed for desired coverage.
Step 3: Using a powder brush or the Chisel Brush, sweep Mineral Glow over your face and neck for a healthy glow.
Step 4: Complete the look with Impact+ Mascara. Comb wand through upper and lower lashes with slow, delicate, repeated strokes


So I am shocked by how much I really enjoy this kit. The color  I chose, (Golden Medium) works very well with my skintone and gives me a nice fresh glow. The primer is silky and reminds me a bit of Smashbox's primer, which is my go to primer.  The brush is pretty sterdy and seems like it will last. The glow also works well as a bronzer and I brushed this over my shoulders, neck and face to get a nice fresh look.

I did notice the Start Now Kit covered up flaws on my face such as redness and dark spots. I did however use a little bit of my MAC concealer just to fix up my under eye area a bit.

The only part of the Start Now Kit that I thought was just "ok" was the mascara.  I'm so picky when it comes to my lashes, and I felt like it didn't do much for the volume or length. (see below)



So would I purchase the Start Now Kit? The answer is yes! But now that I've tried all the products, I think I would buy the Mineral Makeup separately. I'm no big fan of mineral makeup, but this one is one of my favorites. It doesn't leave you chalky or overdone like a lot of mineral makeups. I swore them off a long time ago, however this one is working well for me.
