Pur Cosmetics Products Review
Pur Cosmetics sent me some of their newest products for me to try out a couple of weeks ago. I have been using them ever since, thought now it’s the time to give my in-depth reviews.
Pur Bare It All 12-Hour 4-In-1 Skin-Perfecting Foundation
Let me start with the Bare It All 12-Hour 4-In-1 Skin-Perfecting Foundation. It comes with 10 shades total; below are the swatches for the 9 shades, which I got from Pur’s website. I was not able to find a swatch for the shade Dark, so I had to use the image the of the product instead:
I wear MAC’s Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundations in NC20-25; I have pink undertone for my face and light yellow for the rest of my body. And, my face is naturally 1 shade lighter than my neck, so looking for a “perfect” match has been quite difficult for me. The Bare It All foundation shade Porcelain is too light for me and Light is a hair too dark, so I have to mix both Porcelain and Light (1:1) to get my somewhat perfect shade.
Below, you can see the swatches in natural day light. I included the swatch of Pur’s Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation in shade Light, which I will talk about in a minute:
I like how the Bare It All 12-Hour 4-In-1 Skin-Perfecting Foundation provides semi-Matte finish; it provides light to medium coverage, I can still see my redness with 1 layer but it covers them with 2 layers. I have Normal skin type, so most of the foundations should work on my skin. For this foundation though, I do need to well moisturize my skin and use a primer before applying; because when I wore this alone over just my sunscreen, it emphasized my pores and laugh lines a little bit. If I don’t set this with a powder, it will last about 4 hours before I had the need to powder or blog my T-Zone area. If I set it with a powder right after application, it will last about 6 hours before it started looking a bit greasey on my nose; but it’s really mild and can definitely let it be without touch-ups for the entire work day. I like how it has skin care ingredients to help improving our skin overtime. And, it’s also cruelty, gluten, paraben free.
It does not oxidase on my skin. As you can see from the image below, no.1 in was after it’s been set for about 10min, and no.2 was freshly swatched (shade Light):
And below is the shade Light with MAC’s Pro Longwear NC25, in comparison, shade Light appears to have neutral undertone:
Pur Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation
The Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation claims to deliver Swiss Alps-sourced mineral water that goes deep into the skin to hydrate for lasting radiance. HydraFluid’s lightweight formula satisfies the desire for dewy, breathable, luminous-looking skin and a bare-looking but perfect complexion. This foundation only comes with 5 shades, the shade Light is the lightest shade that they offer:
The shade Light is currently half a shade dark on my NC25 skin tone. And as you can see from the swatches below, the shade Light (far left) has neutral undertone compare to MAC’s NC25 (far right). Since my face has pink undertone, I always tend to go with foundations that provide yellow undertone to cancel out the mild redness. I have to use a lighter powder to set my face when using this foundation, or else it will look greasey after just a couple of hours; plus, using a lighter powder helps lighten up the shade a little bit to match better. I don’t think it is considered a Foundation as it doesn’t cover my mild redness, and it’s not build-able; I would consider this as BB/CC cream. The Foundation does fade on me at around 4-hour mark, but it fades nicely and doesn’t leave werid patches. I do like to use this during a weekend when I just need to go out for a few hours (I always need to set it with a lighter powder though), it evens out my skin tone and blurs out my pores.

Pur On Point Lip Liners
Prime and line your pout with these lip perfecting liners. On Point glides on easily and locks lip color into place to prevent color from bleeding and feathering. The long-wear formula contains a plumping peptide that improves the appearance of lips for the look of a fuller, smoother pout. It has total of 10 shades:
They sent me all 6 shades; the shades from left to right above are: See Thru (I did swatch it, but since it’s clear so it’s not showing up lol), Low Key, Teddy, Tutu, Power Trip, and Vamp. These liners are so creamy and pigmented, they did prevent my lipsticks from bleeding; when I used the liners alone by filling the lips, they last at least 4 hours on me without fading. The cool thing is they sharpen itself when twisting it in its cap; however, I also feel like it also wastes quite a lot of products by doing this every time I use them.
Pur Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks
They sent me 7 out of 10 shades of their Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of liquid lipsticks so I was extremely exciting to receive these in the mail. I have the shades Obsessed, Oh Bae, FBF, Innocent, Ever After, Addition, Dutty Wine:
These Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks provide high-pigmented lip colors in mousse-like texture, they glide on my lips so easily and smoothly, rich and creamy. They dry down to a Matte finish without over-drying my lips; it did take a good 2 minutes before they’re completely dried down though. Once they’re dried, they stayed on my lips for up to 6 hours without fading; unless I eat some greasy/oily food. Here’s the swatches of the remaining shades:
Pur Chrome Glaze High-Shine Lip Gloss
This lightweight, highly pigmented lip color utilizes gel technology to coat lips in vivid color and intense shine. The chrome-like gloss provides pigment without traveling or fading. They sent me all 6 shades: DIY, Smarty Pants, Squad, Heart Breaker, Arm Candy, and Rebel.
I am usually not a fan of lip glosses, but I don’t mind wearing these ones. Pur’s glosses provide high pigments and they are not sticky on the lips. It feels so lightweight and comfortable on. It does give intense shine, which sometimes I don’t prefer; what I do is to lightly blot off the excess with a tissue, it takes away the shine but leave a nice sheen. By doing this, the color lasts for a good 4 hours on mu lips without fading; I usually reapply after having lunch.
That’s all the products that I have been testing out for Pur Cosmetics. Huge thanks to Pur for sending me these awesome products, I’m glad that I had the chance to try them out. Thanks everyone for stopping by my blog! Have an awesome week!
