Worth the Splurge? Purminerals CC cream in light Review

I received this in an eh July birchbox. This was the only item I was really excited about. Click down to see how it did!


What it promises:


What I found: 
Well first off this is a deluxe size sample. I've been using it a lot only two small dots to cover my face and there's still more! They really filled this tube!  

I have been breaking out a bit this summer because of my hormonal imbalances do to my PCOS so I actually been looking for something with more coverage. 

This promises to even out tone. Which I think it does wonderfully it even helps make my blemishes less noticeable. I still need to dot a little concealer on them before they disappear. 

I light that this is light weight with a bit of coverage. A little more than light but less than medium. But none of the weight. 

As you can see from the photos below it covers a lot of redness and my acne scarring. Which is great! Wear time is 6-8 hours if set with powder. Even then depending on what I did it lasted even longer than that. 
Clean skin, no makeup.

After use, no powder

Finished Look


Pros:

  • Covers Redness
  • light to medium coverage
  • evens skin tone
  • 6-8 hours of wear when set with a powder
Cons: 
  • Pricey
  • I find I still need a moisturizer with this. 
VERDICT: I am completely in love with this. I will be buying this for myself with my Birchbox points! Can be bought for $38. Strongly recommend.
