When I think of a compact, images of pressed powder normally come to mind, not liquid foundation. So when I got the chance to test out the Pur Minerals Air Perfection Cushion Compact, I was too intrigued to say no. Plus, who doesn’t love to test out foundation?

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this foundation so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it offered great coverage – not too heavy and not too light – that was lighter-than-air and long-lasting. The lightest shade, “light,” was slightly too dark for my current ghostly pale, but it would be perfect for my Summer “tan.”

As for application – I didn’t love the little puff that it came with, but I loved the airbrushed look I achieved when paired with my beauty blender.  What doesn’t a beauty blender work with? That’s really a question for another post. And you ready for some more good news? You can snag the Pur Minerals Air Perfection Cushion Compact for $30 (regularly $38) at the moment, so get shopping!

What is your favorite lighter-than-air foundation?

    Excellent review! I have this and really need to start wearing it to see what I think of it! I loved the way it swatched on my arm, but your review is causing me to pull it out and give it a spin! 🙂

    It looks great on you. I just tried a Korean brand of cushion and I liked it too.

    I've always wanted to try a cushion compact – all the finish of a liquid with the mess-free and portable packaging of a compact. You look gorgeous, bare-faced or not!! Love the lippie.
