Do I Have a Secret Crush?
When looking at ways to spend my birthday coupon at Ulta, I came across this Pur Minerals Secret Crush palette, and decided to give it a whirl. I love the rose gold and the darker bronze colors, and thought this might make a good addition to my collection.
The palette comes in a metal tin with a secure latch, and a soft, but rather sheddy brush. I haven't washed it yet, though, so maybe that will stop after a few washings.
There are 8 colors in the palette, mostly shimmers and metallics. There is a matte vanilla, matte peach, and a matte grey-toned brown, though, which are really all I need for transitions and bases. I love shimmer, and right now I am loving metallic, too.
Here's the main problem I have with this palette. There are no names anywhere on it. Not the name of the palette, not the name of the shadows. Only the name "Pur" on the cover, but that's it. So, if that doesn't bother you, you're good to go. If it does, you'll probably want to do what I did (and what I've seen another reviewer do) - cut out the names of the colors and the palette from the box it came in, and glue them to the palette. So low rent. Pur, what were you thinking? This isn't a $2 palette.
Cover FX Illuminating Primer and CC Cream, Eddie Funkhouser Concealer (Light), the IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette, and Pur LipGloss Stick in Honey Pie.
On my eyes, I started with Too Faced Bulletproof Brows (Brunette). I used Maybelline Color Tattoo Metallics in Barely Branded as a base, then added the PurMinerals Secret Crush palette, Borghese Linea Precisa black liquid eyeliner, and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.
Have you tried this palette yet?
