Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer

On the spectrum between bare skin and full-on foundation, we like to err on the natural side of things. That’s why we’re huge fans of Pür Minerals’s brand new mineral-based tint, which works simultaneously as a moisturizer, primer, sheer foundation, and SPF 20. The creamy formula smooths over all kinds of flaws—from stubborn lines to blotchy redness—with color-corrective pigments. At the same time, it plumps up skin with proven moisturizers and offers broad spectrum sun protection. The lightweight texture makes us forget we’re wearing any makeup at all.

This product has made my Birchbox experience well worth it! I have been subscribed to BB for almost 2 years. I received this product April 2012 and I still use it to this day. I always rack up my points and use it on this tinted moisturizer.

Everything it says it does, it DOES! I love that it is a 4-in-1 and it lasts about 8 hours, which is more than fair! You can have light coverage if needed, or you can build it up. Depending on the season, I do both.

I have yet to try other product form Pur, but I still plan to. The sample I received was a decent amount as well as it lasted almost a month.

I am not the type to wear heavy foundations because I prefer more natural looks on my skin and this product fits that!

Great stuff!

I liked this product so much I purchased a full size! It gave me a nice medium coverage. My face felt very moisturized but not cakey. It has a nice luminous finish that I thought was great.

Not for my skin tone
Purchased

I have very fair skin, and after reading reviews I thought this product in light would be the best of Birchbox's bb creams/tinted moisturizers for my coloring, but it is still way too orange. I am able to wear it if I mix it about 50/50 with a tintless moisturizer, but of course this reduces its coverage. Overall, I really like the consistency, but I'm still looking for a tinted product that works for my skin tone.

Great multi-tasking product
Purchased

This product gets the job done without providing too much coverage. My only complaint is that it turned my skin slightly orange. I tried other colors and none of the others matched my coloring.

So-So

This was surprisingly thicker in consistency than I thought. It felt a bit cakey on my face (which I didn't like) and did not feel smooth/silky at first. But the light coverage is nice.

fast and convenient

i liked the coverage as its not heavy but evens out my skin tone. its great on mornings when i'm limited on time. it allows me to skip moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation.

one step

I like that it makes it a one step morning for me. On the days I dont feel like applying make up the light coverage and fact its lotion like and has spf its perfect to just put on and head out the door.

Good moisterizer

I liked that it made my skin glow and look dewy but at the end of the day it didn't look as good. I guess blotting and powder would have made it look a little better but I really wasn't impressed.

Too dark for fair skin

The 'light' color is still to dark for me. I really like the texture and the light coverage of this product, but even the 'light' just looks too fake-tan-orange on my face, especially after it fully absorbed. It looked OK in the mirror at first, but when I went back into the bathroom 10 minutes later, I couldn't believe how much it totally did NOT match my skin. If you are light/lightly tan this would be great for you, but 'fair' skinned - stay away.

Never tried a CC cream

I have tried BB creams and never found any I loved enough to repurchase any of them. However, this CC cream interests me because it is supposed to replace so many products, including your sunscreen.
