Product One – Recommended – Pür Minerals 4-1 Powder
Pür Minerals 4-1 Face Powder. I have found nothing (no matter the cost) which comes close to offering the blemish-free complexion which this powder achieves. As a beautician we would have access to many different creams, foundations and concealers, Pür Minerals 4-1 was mine and (my colleagues) choice of powder and our Go-To product every single day. Not only does it offer exceptional concealer without drying the skin but it is also achieved in less than 2 minutes, it lasted all day and was easy to create the blank canvas when “making over” clients.
Featured as one of my “can’t live without” items and I am writing a post about this very subject. If I was marooned on a desert island and could only take 3 products, this would be one of them.
Why I Like It: The very best all-round product I have ever found. I wrote this post largely to feature this product. You apply with a stiff haired brush (called a chisel Brush) and do not need any particular skill or watching of YouTube Videos on how to apply. It is easy and I have found time and time again this to be one of the easiest and most comprehensive products.
Comes in many shades: Another positive about this powder is it comes in 11 colours. I use “Golden Medium” in the summer and “Blush” in the winter.
Has an SPF 15
How Long Will It Stay In Place: In my experience, it can last on your face for some considerable time without “touch up”. However, if you add a few simple steps at the outset and finish with a setting spray it will increase the “stay in place” time. If you are intending to go out for the evening straight from work then adding a couple of additional steps will ensure beautiful complexions day and night. To do this simply add your favourite liquid primer on a makeup-free face, then add illuminating concealer, (like Touche Eclat) followed by 4-1 foundation powder and finally complete with a little spritz of make-up setting spray. However, this 4-1 powder is advertised and works with none of these additional steps being necessary and is why it is my number one choice of foundation powders without the faff.
