Purminerals = Pure Awesome

17 Jan

It’s Tuesday!  Ok, I’m really not that excited that it’s Tuesday.  Let’s try that again… it’s Tuesday.  Wah wah… wahhhh.

Well if anyone else has a case of the Tuesdays, be prepared to witness some pure awesomeness.  It may be just what you need to get rid of “the Tuesdays.”

It’s the Purminerals Liquid Metal Eyeshadow 4 piece Stick Kit!  Awesome, right?  *high five* 

Website descriptionTurn up the heat with Pür’s long-wear Liquid Metal Eye Shadow Sticks. Available in four molten metallic hues with iridescent shimmer, our smudge-proof shadow sticks capture the light from all angles to create a megawatt, multidimensional effect. Effortlessly apply as an eye crayon or liner and feel the creamy, water-resistant formula cool the skin as it colors.

The set is $22.00 for 4 pencils (0.28oz ea).  It says that it’s a $60 value, although I can’t find these for individual sale anywhere so I’m not sure where they came up with that price.  Oh well, I’m not losing sleep over it.

The set comes with 4 colors.

  • Midnight Chrome – sparkling jet black
  • True Cobalt – metallic midnight blue
  • Steel Envy – dark jade green
  • Iced Bronze – rich chocolate shimmer

My thoughts: Color me pleasantly surprised by these.  I love that you can use them for either liner or eyeshadow.  I expected them to crease, but they don’t (with base)!  They apply really smooth with really great color payoff.  I wouldn’t describe them as “liquid” though.  It has a different consistency as, say the NYX Jumbo Pencil or the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencils, which both have a creamier formula.  These have a dryer formula.

The only thing I’d nitpick at is the lasting power, they start fading after about 4 hours.  They also don’t show up very well in the waterline (if you’re using it as a liner).  The lids to the pencils also fall off easily.

Glitter rating: 3.5 / 5

You can purchase this at Ulta or on the Purminerals website.

    The swatches look great, especially true cobalt. I might pass on these though if the staying power is only 4 hours. :/ thanks for the review Kayla! Hope you have a great day! 🙂
