Not the same Pur Minerals we all loved!
from Ottawa, ON
It had that "something special" before they changed the formulation. The colours are not the same, the coverage is different, and there are more added ingredients, that don't work for me.I concur with other shoppers....unless they can bring back the "original" I won't purchase it ever again! Bring back Joli Baker too!! I would return the product, but it is not worth the S&H to return to TSC. It is going int the garbage!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bring back the original
Yes, I concur with the other customers: "please bring back the original!"The new formulation is nothing compared to the original. To start with, it lacks the coverage, which is exactly why we use a makeup in the first place. So this new version isn't doing the job that the old version did.Secondly, with all the added ingredients, it is now not a 'pure' product and the proof of that is that we are all getting irritation from it. I can no longer use this mineral powder because it gives me zits, so I have switched to another brand.Please bring back the original product.It was incredible.

Please please bring back original
By Missing original
The original formula was perfect. My shade blush medium. The new formula has all these added ingredients and is not as good a foundation. The whole point of the original was pure simplicity, thus the name! No need to complicate a good thing. Shopping Channel please use your clout to have them bring back the original formula. In the meantime, I have switched to Lise Watier pressed mineral.

Bring back old formula.
Bring back The Original, 3.5
By The Shop Lady
from Winnipeg, MB
I use this as my foundation and got used to the dip, draw and brush on! Once we customers perfect that and they had the perfect product, Why Change?? Please bring back the original. It gives great coverage and feels so light on! I just love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Foundation Powder
I have been using this product for 6 years +. Having oily skin, I am uncomfortable using liquid foundation. Pur Minerals 4 in 1 glides onto my skin, covers beautifully but does not look anything like common powder make-up. I am confident that is also good for my skin and will not damage it. It never cakes. I just hope you carry this product forever............and don't change it.

Pur Minerals losing its credibility
The quality of Pur Minerals has really started to go downhill since Joli's departure. Instead of sticking to what they did well and set them apart from other companies, they have started to jump on every trend bandwagon and have been bringing products to market that are either not ready or are just plain poor quality (I have received several products that seemed stale or gave me the impression that they were "seconds" or factory rejects like the horribly shedding brush that came with the liquid foundation). I noticed right away that the new 4-in-1 was not as good and it made my skin sting. The new compact is clunky and heavy and I find it difficult to hold in my hand (plus it is incredibly environmentally unfriendly). Recently I opened a compact of the original formula that I had stashed away. I feel really sad because it made me remember how great it was and why I used it for years and gave it as a gift to my family memebers. Recently, I found out that some of my other old favourites are also no longer available or are being "improved".Whoever is running the company now really needs to rethink their strategy. Pur Minerals has really lost its credibility and even integrity. How sad for what used to be an exceptional company.
Love the natural & flawless look
First time trying the 4 in 1 powder. I was surprised at how much I love it. I use it lightly to even out melasma and it looks very natural. There is a slightly dewy finish that I enjoy. I tried the IT compact and found it to be quite matte and flat looking. I bought the Light Tan and it is a perfect match for my medium Asian complexion.

Amazing product....love it!
I love this product....it's easy to apply and never looks "caked on". I have been a faithful consumer of this since my wedding in 2011. I love, love, love it! I highly recommend this regardless of skin type (mine is combination). I have less break outs and it seems to keep the oil under control also. My skin looks radiant and flawless using this. Can't express how much I am thankful for this in my life.
so sad to report....
When I first started using this my skin was blemish free but gradually I started to get more and more white pimples. I started to review the ingredients and found that it contains Bismuth Oxychloride which can cause skin irritations.Sadly, I decided to throw all my Pur Minerals away. I will not risk purchasing this again
