Good quality products
By Make Up Hound
from Ajax (Ontario)
I purchased a sample kit from my local drug store containing the 4 in 1 powder, the brush, and a bronzer. I liked the products so much, that when I saw the 9 pc. showstopper, I decided to purchase it. I thought for the price point it was an excellent deal and don't understand why some people found it expensive. Two of the full sized products alone equal the price of the package. The 4 in 1 powder, blush, primer, lipgloss and foundation brush are full sized products. The skincare kit comes in sample sizes but I found them to be large enough to get a good idea of how the products work, feel and react on the skin. The cleansing product is awesome for removing makeup and the moisturizer provided me with enough moisture and didn't leave my skin feeling too heavy. I found the mud mask a bit too active for my skin although I do have rosacea and it left my face a bit red. I have been told that mud masks will do this as they help to pull impurities from the pores. I have used the make up setting spray a couple of times but can't really say as to whether it helps set my make up or increase the longevity. It does feel refreshing however. As for the full sized make up products, I have no complaints with any of them. The 4 in 1 powder is quick and easy to apply, and provides great coverage although I do use a liquid undereye concealer prior to applying the powder, and will spot any areas of redness or blemishes with concealer prior to powder application as well. Love the blush - great summer colour, and the primer does put down a good based for the powder to adhere to. I find the make up lasts all day with minimal touch ups. The 4 in 1 powder needs to be applied with the brush, perhaps this is why some customers are not finding it satisfactory?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By My two cents
from East Ontario
I have used mineral makeup for many years, but never the Pur. I have used everything in the package except the mud mask and so far have been very impressed. It used to take me a long time to apply my other mineral makeup which has 5 different powders now I just use the 4 in 1 and have the same effect in a matter of minutes. I will buy again, the only disappointment is as others have mentioned, the size of the items are definitely a sample size so will not last long. That's why four stars, product very good but expensive even as show stopper.
4-1 pressed powder!best ever!
from Powell River. BC
e pressed powder you couldn't beat it for face cover-up it's light and you don't feel it on your face and it has some protection. Tthe disappointment was found however in the cleansing products this size was too small to get a fair and accurate judgment on if it really works from my face or not.

from MUSQUODOBOIT HARBOUR, NS
Very disappointed. The only saving grace is the blush. I have light freckled skin that tans moderately. I purchased the blush medium as suggested during the shopstopper demo. I didn't open all the items because I didn't like the 4-1 powder nor the lip gloss. No matter how lightly I tried to apply the powder it magnified my crowsfeet. The lipgloss was a frosty pink, not what was shown during the show. I really liked the blush. It gave a natural color but wasn't keeping the kit for only one item. It might work for some people but not for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am disappointed
I have used Pur Minerals for over 9 years and love the product. The 4 in 1 hies blemishes, etc. well and looks natural. The s/stoppers have been going downhill lately, using almost old or discontinued stock. What gives? It is a nice way to purchase the 4 in 1 and have some 'extras' that I give away as I have no need/interest in some of the products. Please make these s/stoppers better!!!
Nice introduction to Pur Minerals
from Vancouver Island, BC
This was the first time I had used this line of products and really liked some of it. They really are just trial samples, especially the face wash and face cream. I liked them so much that I searched out the full size products (couldn't find them on TSC). The powder and blush was okay but not as good as other products I have tried. I would recommend this kit to try them out but not at full price, I got them at the Showstopper price.
Feel confident again
I bought the pur mineral 9 pcs set for a special price and love it. When the phrase "helps rosecea" was mentioned my ears opened up. So I decided to try it as they were sample size, and it works. I have very sensitive skin and got worse as I went through menopause and could not use any cleansers, moisturizers or coverage of any sort and now I feel good again. I don't like to wear make up so this is light and yet gives me coverage without irritation. The cleanser leathers and you need only pea size, same with the moisturizer. I been using it for about 4 weeks now and have not noticed any problems. Thinking of ordering the large size. Just love it!
Basic products are great............
from Winnipeg MB
I buy the showstopper for the 4in1 powder. I have been using it for years. I found the blush and lip colour were too shiny. The base is good and I have not tried the cleansing item.

9pc. pur mineral disappointing
from amherstburg, ont.
very disappointed when I saw the size of collection, what a shame. I have used the pur mineral face compact and I love it but as far as this 9 pc. sample kit for the price we payed shopping channel should be ashame. I would never have ordered it for that price my mistake,now I am leery on purchasing more product from this site. I gave a 2 star just for the compact.
By mrs bargain hunter
First time trying this product. and boy was I disappointed. first, for the price all I got were samples of the skin care. I used the face wash and found that it was thick and hard to take off completely. I found that the skin cream was sticky and I didn't like the feeling. my skin was not as soft as I thought that it would/should have been. The smell of the product was not even very nice. I did like the 4-1 powder and wish I could have kept that one product out of the whole kit. I did like the coverage and it was nice and light on the face and didn't feel like I had makeup on. liked the blush as well. the lip gloss was not something that I would not wear, and the brush was useless.
