STASH OR PASS SERIES: PÜR Cosmetics Bare It All 12 Hour 4-In1 Skin Perfecting Foundation Review

+PÜR cosmetics  just released their newest addition called the Bare It All 12 Hour 4-in-1 Skin Perfecting Foundation not too long ago. And I'm excited to share this with you! 






This foundation as mentioned before is a 4-in-1 Skin Perfecting Full Coverage Foundation that comes in 10 Shades. That is a mouth full and is saying a lot about this foundation! Which means this foundation would basically need to...
1. Last at least half a day which is 12 hrs.
2. For it to be a "SKIN PERFECTING" Foundation it would need to be full coverage.
3. It would need to be a great quality foundation to last all day.
4. And for it to be a "4-in-1" Foundation I'm assuming it would need to...

  • Be a primer
  • Be a concealer
  • Be a full coverage foundation
  • Be a setting spray 
Am I right? So basically we'll be walking around looking like real snapchat filters lol.


The Bare It All Collection includes:

  • Bare It All 12-hour 4-in-1 Skin Perfecting Foundation | Retail Price: $39.00
  • Skin Perfecting Foundation Brush | Retail Price: $28.00
  • Skin Perfecting Concealer Brush | Retail Price: $22.00





Some key things you should know about this foundation is that it's vegan free, gluten free, & paraben free. It contains Energy ComplexCeretin Complex & Blue Agave.

BENEFITS
  • The Energy Complex is a combination of green tea, ginseng and B Vitamins. Together these ingredients stimulate the skins metabolic renewal process.
  • Ceretin Complex has anti-aging benefits where it helps to smooth, firm and lift giving the skin an ageless complexion.
  • Blue Agave hydrates and nourishes the skin.




Unfortunately I would have to practically wear this only to know if any of this is true. But I probably won't be wearing it too often because it's not women of color friendly. The deeper shades look promising to the naked eye but looks can be deceiving. Which is why I don't get caught up in swatches because you will never know what works until you actually try it out on the face.

HOWEVER all hope is not lost! I know for the average women of color she's not looking to customize her foundation which is perfectly fine but this works perfectly as a concealer. Because I am a makeup artist I make things work for me and this foundation works perfectly as a concealer. 

Also because this foundation claims to be a 12 Hour Foundation I put that to the test. 

And with no touch ups under the eye and in certain parts of my face this foundation held up very well. No separation, no creasing and it didn't get too oily. Besides I'm a dewy girl anyway. But for those who have oily skin you definitely want to prep and set your skin to avoid looking like you were coated with olive oil.


This foundation is a semi-matte finish which means it has some form of dewiness to it. It locks to the skin fast. It transfer a tad bit but it's not bad at all!


I was also sent two beautiful brushes...


  • Skin Perfecting Foundation Brush $28.00
This brush is soft and is a synthetic fiber brush with a large grip handle that gives skin a smooth airbrush effect that looks like the second skin. It's also Cruelty-Free 
  • Skin Perfecting Concealer Brush $22.00

This brush is soft and is a synthetic fiber with a small head to apply to smaller areas of the face like under the eyes for concealing, highlighting and contouring. This brush is also Cruelty-Free. 


Overall this foundation is a great texture, finish. +PÜR cosmetics  could definitely work on their shades a lot better for women of color but I believe they will get it right one day!

Is this a STASH OR PASS FOR ME? HECK, I'm a makeup artist who can make anything work and because it works perfectly as a highlighting concealer I say it's a stash!



Where can you find this foundation? It's available in your local Ulta and on the +PÜR cosmetics  website www.purcosmetics.com. And also check Kohls and maybe Look Boutique because they carry PUR Cosmetics Also.

  3. I just finished my favorite foundation a few days ago and I was thinking about testing out some new ones to see what my other options are. The PÜR foundation looks so good on you (then again everything does) but after your review I am really considering giving them a try! Thank you Faith!

    1. Mayra, I believe you will like this foundation. They have great shade ranges for your complexion. You may be in between porcelain or light. I think light is your shade but go to ulta and test out in natural lighting not store lighting and take a picture.

    1. Yes the price in my opinion is competitive and for someone who may have oily skin they may like it. It depends on the person. but I would definitely try a sample first to see how it wears if you decide to try it out.
