Everybody wants that J.Lo glow, but it’s especially popular in the hot summer months as it looks amazing with all your summer clothes. Bronzy, glowing skin is a must at this time of year, but that being said, we don’t want to be baking in the harmful sun to achieve this look. Pür Cosmetics is aware of the desire and has recently released a jumbo size bronzer that instantly leaves you looking like a sun-kissed goddess and is the perfect bronzer to feature on this fashion blog. If you’re looking for a naturally brilliant bronzer that mimics a sun-inspired contour, this is the bronzer for you. A little product goes a long way in achieving that golden-hue all-year-long with sun exposure. The new Pür Glow Together Gradient Matte-Shimmer Bronzer features 3 matte shades, alongside 3 shimmer shades, to help provide an illuminating, sun-tanned effect to the skin. Its antioxidant enriched formula not only helps give a radiant glow to the skin, it helps to keep it healthy, streak and patchiness-free.
Pür Glow Together Gradient Matte-Shimmer Bronzer comes in a dark chocolate brown oversize compact with gold accents and a full size mirror on the inside lid. It features a silky, soft and smooth texture in 6 coordinating shades. The top 3 are completely matte, whereas the bottom 3 are slightly shimmery. It’s easy to apply, blends out beautifully and is highly pigmented. It’s extremely buildable, lightweight and with a warm luminous finish. It helps to instantly create a natural summertime glow, but the intensity can be built up for a more sculpted, dramatic look. To achieve that just returned from the beach look, simply sweep over face, shoulders, neckline, décolleté and even on bare legs for a subtle bronzing shimmer (or matte) finish.
I love that all 6 stripes that are found in the Pür Glow Together Gradient Matte-Shimmer Bronzer can easily be picked up on their own. I can use each shade individually or mix and match them to create several different looks. When I swirl my brush around all 6 shades it creates a warm, luminous, radiant glow. I can see this being suitable for all skin tones and complexion, although those with lighter complexion will probably benefit from it more? It can easily take me from day to night, work or play, depending on which shades I pair together. Added bonus, not only will this bronzer last forever, it’s a bronzer that gives back. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Action Against Hunger, a global humanitarian organization committed to helping end hunger around the world. Get glowing skin, while giving back. It’s a win win. It retails for $42.
Keeping with the fresh, dewy complexion, Pür also released a Swiss Alps, water sourced foundation that provides a natural finish with skin benefiting ingredients. The new Pür HydraFluid is a lightweight, water serum foundation that delivers long-lasing hydration with a silky, medium coverage finish. Not only does it feature a unique encapsulated water complex, is also contains a Ceretin complex that’s perfect for hydrating the skin and includes vitamin E for anti-aging benefits.
Pür HydraFluid comes in a squeezable tube with a thin, nozzle-like applicator, that’s perfect for depositing the correct amount of product you want/need without wasting. Although it’s a water-based foundation, it’s actually slightly thicker than I was expecting and super easy to work with. I definitely suggest using small amounts of the product and really blending it into the skin, to prevent it from looking cakey and settling into pores or fine lines. It applies beautifully to the skin, even without a primer, but when used in conjunction with it, it helps to seamlessly glide across the skin with ease. It helps to conceal blemishes, even out skin tone and redness, while reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles and pores. It instantly smoothes the skin for an extremely natural looking (almost a second skin), velvety soft, sheer to medium coverage that lasts all day. When used without a primer at least 8 hours wear time, but when used with a primer, you can expect upwards of 12 hours without separating or fading.
My dry, dehydrated skin has been loving this Pür HydraFluid, although shade Medium is a tad too dark for my pale complexion as its starts to oxidize throughout the day. I’ve been trying to make it work though. It instantly leaves my skin feeling fresh, hydrated and heathy, with a medium to full, luminous coverage. Although it does have somewhat of a watery consistency, due to its encapsulated water technology, it surprisingly doesn’t leave my skin looking like a grease ball. I was actually expecting a sheer to light coverage, due to its thin texture, but it surprisingly covers all my imperfections and evens out my skin tone with ease. I’ve been applying it with a damp Beauty Blender and really buffing it into the skin. It’s extremely buildable, just work in small amounts. I have no problem achieving the coverage I want and desire without feeling heavy, thick or cakey, nor does it accentuate any dryness I may be experiencing that day. If you’re looking for a breathable, medium coverage, healthy glow foundation this summer, I suggest taking a closer look at this one. It retails for $48 in 5 shades, Light, Medium, Tan, Dark and Deep.
A strengthen, thicken and lengthen mascara, yes please. The new Pür Fully Charged Mascara not only helps to keep lashes extremely healthy, it helps to add both length, thickness and volume while separating each lash to give the appearance of fuller lashes. It’s formulated with magnetic polymers that instantly wrap around each lash to help lift and define each lash without having to add several coats. It also contains a unique blend of pro-vitamin B5 and biotinoyl tripeptide-1 to help condition and strengthen the lashes which helps with breakage and lash loss. Carnauba and beeswax help to lock and set everything into place for all day hold both day and night.
Pür Fully Charged Mascara is one magical mascara. It does everything a good mascara should, adding both length, volume, and fullness, while keeping my lashes soft, healthy and strong. It adds bulk and volume to my lashes for long-lasting performance that doesn’t flask, smudge or budge throughout the day. Not only does it keep everything in place and hold my curl the entire day, it provides my lashes with an intense, highly pigmented, black finish. I love that it dries fairly quickly, but allows me to go in for a second coat if desired. I single coat provides an extremely natural effect that’s perfect for every day wear, whereas a second coat instantly amplifies my eye look and provides a dramatic, intense nighttime effect. It retails for $28.
