Hi loves! In today’s post I’m going to be giving thoughts on the PÜR Cosmetics Bare It All Foundation. It’s not a new product but it is their newest foundation. I have tried this product multiple times and I finally feel like I can give a thorough review of it. I will give a warning that my review is basically a complaint.
So this foundation has a lot of claims. The description on the Ulta website says: “This high performance, 12-hour, demi-matte foundation helps to cover imperfections and instantly perfect the skin while helping to correct problem areas over time so you can confidently bare it all. Designed for face and body and formulated with PÜR’s proprietary Energy Complex and Ceretin Complex, this formula renews the look of your skin and goes the distance.” It sounds amazing right? I have had great experiences with PÜR products. I love their eyeshadow palettes and their skincare is amazing! My expectations were literally so high for this product.. Let me tell you why this didn’t work for me.
So I have very oily skin and have tried multiple mattifying primers including Benefit‘s Porefessional original and Matte Rescue, UD‘s Smoothing primer and Smashbox’s Photo Finish primer. My skin was unbelievably oily at the end of the day. More than usual when I wore this foundation. After this, I tried hydrating and normal skin primers such as Too Faced‘s Hangover and Laura Geller‘s Hydrating Spackle. The results were worse. My skin stayed oily no matter what! I even tried no primer and the foundation was sliding off in just a couple of hours. I used my original Beauty Blender, and my Mikasa Beauty Lemon Drop Sponge, and foundation brushes to apply this to see if it made a difference and it didn’t. When it first goes it feels dry, like powdery dry. I would spray my face with with setting spray sometimes so it wouldn’t look so matte. And it was also very cakey even if I barely put any on. Even my fiancé said it looked like it wasn’t absorbing into my skin, but just sitting on the top. My very last complaint is that it oxidized and changed to a lighter shade as I wore it.
There are so many great products by the PÜR Minerals brand! They are a very natural brand with some vegan products and are cruelty free. Also, all of their makeup products contain skincare ingredients which is great for your skin. I hope some of you try this product and love it! It has great potential! This is just my opinion on a product that didn’t work for me. Thanks so much for reading!
