Hello loves, so a couple of weeks ago on Beauty Bay I saw they were marketing a Beauty Bay exclusive with Pur, offering a 2 limited edition palette set for just £27 and well obviously I bought it. Now I actually forgot I had this until I was on Beauty Bay again this week and the set has gone into the sale for £13.50 so I thought I’d do a quick swatch and tell for you just in case you’re debating the purchase!
First off then we have the Midday Mirage Cheek Palette offering 6 shades in total. 2 bright blushes, a highlight and bronzer and then 2 supposed highlights or maybe bronzer or shadow, I’m not too sure?! Whatever they are, they’re stunning and the pigmentation is great.
In the Day Dream, Day Look Eye Shadow Palette we have 8 shadow options including 2 cream tones, 3 mauvey hued shadows, 2 rose tones and my favourite – Reverie, beautiful brown toned nude with small flecks of gold. Both palettes contain a mirror making this perfect for carrying on the daily or travelling.
These are the very first products I’ve used from Pur and honestly, I do really like the colours of the product and the packaging is very clean and fresh looking but I feel like pigmentation could have been a little stronger in a select couple of the eye shadows. I love colours like Whisper but unfortunately it took so many attempts to build up the kind of pigmentation both with my finger on swatches and also with a blending brush on my eyes.
However I don’t have a bad word to say about the face palette, the colours are stunning, the Trance bronzer is my favourite, it’s a beautiful warm toned colour and had great pigmentation.I’m not sure if Imagine (bottom right) is intended as eyeshadow or not but that’s what I’ve been using it for as it complements blue/green eyes nicely.
In case you were wondering, Pur is they are a cruelty-free company. They claim to never test on animals and that the majority of their products are paraben and gluten free as well as being vegan friendly. This is great for me I’ve been doing a lot of research lately into cosmetic testing on animals so it makes me really happy when I can contribute to a cruelty free brand like Pur.
Overall, I like both palettes and I’m going to try get a lot of use out of them. For only £27 I think they’re really good value and can’t wait to try more of their products in the future. I hope these swatches are clear enough for you to gain an insight into the quality of Pur’s products and has helped you if you’re considering purchasing anything from Pur! If anyone has this let me know how you get on with it! Thanks for the read,
