PUR Minerals Bare It All Foundation ReviewBY: Brianna Michelle
Hold the phone! PUR minerals has a new foundation out that gives my 16 hour wear airbrush foundation a run for it’s money! This could give brides the an affordable foundation alternative versus airbrush for the DIY beauty bride.
One of the second best things about being a makeup artist, besides making others feel good, is getting sent fabulous makeup products to review and test out. My latest foundation to review is this new one called Bare It All by PUR Minerals. Perhaps you have seen it at Ulta or Kohls?

Lets not mistake this foundation as Bare Minerals. This is PUR Minerals- just wanted to clarify! Sent with two unique and new on the market foundation brushes, this product surprised me! I expected it to be light in coverage but I was way wrong! It’s super thick, full coverage, yet doesnt feel heavy or itchy.
This demi-matte foundation is a 4 in 1 product claiming it has 12 hour wear. I wasnt sure what all the 4 in 1 specifics were, but it does perfect and correct, containing skin care properties to be good to the skin. Another plus is that you can use it on the body as well! Tattoo cover-ups here I come!
I had a little bit difficulty using the brushes, they sent me, with the product as the formula is so thick a more thinner brush bristle seemed to work better for me, but the brushes are super nice and I am eager to try them out with a more sheer formula. Still sheering out the product, it does remove all redness, blemishes to skins perfection.
I tried the PUR Minerals foundation without a primer and using the Make Up For Ever Equalizer primer and couldnt tell that much of a difference (above picture). My skin is very smooth so perhaps someone with more acne or poress skin would be able to tell the difference with primer.

I will say that if you havent tried a full coverage foundation before, this might be a little tough to work as you do have to blend it as its thick and full coverage. For mature skin, add a little bit of moisturizer into the foundation to sheer it out a bit for a smoother application.
It certainly lasted more than 12 hours and with the Vegas dry climate! I am excited to start using this on my brides. I would also highly recommend this for oily skin due to the texture and the matte formula!!! Love it!
