With summer fast approaching right around the corner and warmer weather, I know I’ll be spending a lot more time outside. With that being said, I like to keep my makeup simple and easy. A sun-kissed face may give us the color we need, but when it’s unbearably hot, you sweat off all of your makeup. I’m already starting to get irritable just thinking about it!
Pur Minerals Art Decadence 4-piece makeup kit will allow you to accomplish a fascinating summertime glow and your makeup won’t be melting all over your face.
The Mosaic Highlighting Powder in Ornamental is a fantastic compact filled with bronzing, rose, and shimmery colors which accentuated my face perfectly. The Golden Age eyeliner/eye shadow duo came in a double sided crayon, which I wasn’t too crazy about, but was very pretty and gave my eyes that goddess eye pop that is perfect for summer. The Vintage Pink Gloss is an elegant, yet bright lip color to top off my natural looking bronzed face, which gave it that slight bit of color my face needed. This kit also came with a fun shade of pink nail polish, which looks great on all skin shades and not to mention looked outstanding on my beautifully painted toenails.
I applied the highlighter to my cheekbones, forehead, and the bridge of my nose. I then used the Golden Age liner/shadow double sided crayon starting with the darker and fatter sized side, applying it to my lid and blending it in with my finger tip. Then, I went on to use the other side of the crayon to line the bottom lid. After applying the liner, I applied the lip gloss, which is easier to apply with a lip brush and will blend better than just rubbing your lips together. Last but not, least I painted my toes applying a base coat, 2 coats of polish and then the top coat, however let each coat of polish dry before you go on to add another coat ( it will dry much faster).
Now this kit is mainly designed for medium skin tones with golden undertones, however I’m the complete opposite. I have fair skin, pink undertones and covered in freckles. Still, the lip gloss, eye shadow/liner, highlighting powder, and polish fit my skin tone great. Pur Minerals 4 piece set was fun and was easy to apply.
However, if you’re not going to use a foundation and some sort of primer, you will have to reapply the highlighting powder throughout the day, as well as the lip gloss. Out of all 4 of the Pur Minerals products in this kit, I loved the highlighter the most because it gave my face a lovely glow and looked so natural. The reason I didn’t enjoy the double sided liner/shadow was because I’m just not fond of having cream shadow on my lids. That’s just me though and I applied some of the highlighter lightly on my lids to take away that awkward feeling.
Have you tried this kit?
