While I wish I could wake up in the morning with an Instagram-filter on my face to cut out the pre-makeup flaws, life just doesn’t work that way. I am getting older, and my skin needs more than a camera filter, but I also don’t like to wear a ton of makeup either for my everyday summer look. The good news is, recently I found a few new products from Pur Minerals that makes having that fresh-faced, no-makeup look more possible.
Three key makeup products that are essential for a fresh-faced and simple look is mascara, lipstick, and something to cut out flaws on the skin. Check out the Pur Minerals Correcting Primer, Volume Vixen Mascara, and Pur Pout Pen for an effortless makeup look.
Pur Minerals Correcting Primer
I don’t always use a primer on my face, but the Pur Minerals Correcting Primer is worth the extra step. This primer doesn’t just help hold on your foundation, it neutralizes brown and red pigmentation, plus helps to give your skin a natural glow while filtering the look of fine lines and wrinkles. While I don’t have a ton of fine lines yet, my brown pigmentation and broken capillaries are raging war on my skin, and it’s a daily battle to prevent, correct, and conceal.
See, I wasn’t joking when I said I am getting more and more brown pigmentation and broken capillaries on my skin. If you have been around my blog for a while, you know how crazy I am about my skincare and sun-protection. I apply sunscreen every 2 hours, wear hats when I can, and do load of preventative skincare. However, I don’t want to live my life in-doors when the sky is raging blue, I need to be in nature.
I think the difference using the Pur Minerals Perfecting Primer is pretty amazing. While it didn’t take out every flaw (that’s what foundation and concealer are for), it most definitely lessened them. If you look around my nose, you can see the broken capillaries are significantly lighter, and my brown pigmentation is softened. I am sold.

Pur Minerals Volume Vixen
If you want vixen-worthy lashes, perhaps you should give the Pur Minerals Volume Vixen a try. This new mascara is a 4 in 1 mascara that adds volume, length, separation, and strength to the lashes. It’s meant to give them maximum build without weighing them down.
Personally, I think that this is a fabulous mascara that lives up to it’s claims and gives a pretty good wow factor. Check out my before and after of my lashes, it’s such an amazing difference. This mascara lasted all day without touch-ups until I went swimming and wiped the mascara away from my eyes. That’s a pretty typical situation for mascara unless it’s waterproof, so I am not basing my opinion of it on that. I would absolutely re-purchase it, how could I not? My lashes look amazing.

Pur Pout Pen
Get lip color that lasts and hydrates at the same time with the Pur Minerals Pur Pout Pen in Mai Tai. This part lip stain, part hydrating balm is double ended with a felt-tip like stain applicator on one side and a balm on the other. If you want a more matte look, stick with just the stain, but if you need extra hydration, the balm is a nice touch.
For me, I love this color and I thought that the application of the stain was pretty easy to do with the felt tip. It stayed pretty well without having to re-apply, and my lips stayed hydrated with using the balm. Just like with any lip stain, they can be drying, so using the balm was essential.
