As much as I love Summer, I also enjoy transitioning in to Fall. I do not enjoy the cooler weather or the rain, no. I love the beautiful colors of Autumn. I also love switching up my wardrobe and I especially love changing up my makeup routine. PÜR has the most gorgeous cosmetics ever, and I am excited to share with you the products that I am using to bring on the new season! Below are my favorites.
After cleansing and moisturizing my skin each morning, the first thing I always apply is foundation. I use 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation with Skincare in the blush medium shade, since my skin is still slightly tan. I will eventually switch to light when my skin gets a bit paler.
4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation gives you the flawless mineral coverage you expect from PÜR with groundbreaking skincare ingredients built into this award-winning formula. This powder foundation has a lightweight feel and no-mess, no-stress application. This all-in-one foundation, concealer, powder and SPF 15 has been clinically proven to correct, prevent and interrupt your biggest skin concerns – even after the makeup comes off!
When I want my foundation to last a little longer, or if I need a little extra cover up, this foundation is perfect. In fact, I had a small breakout last month, and so I used this foundation as the perfect highly pigmented cover up. It looks completely natural, yet covers everything that I do not wish to be seen. It even stays on when I go swimming. This amazing foundation does not budge until you want to wash it off. It is perfect for a day at the beach!
On Point Eyeliner Pencil (in black)
This eyeliner is amazing! There is a built-in sharpener in the lid, so it is always sharp and ready to use. The pigment is very rich, and I only need one coating, which lasts all day long. It does not smudge or smear. This long wearing formula stays put all day until I want to remove it.
I love this formula! I apply it and it stays put all day long. It is the perfect base coat, and I layer it with my favorite gloss to create my own unique look. I love how it does not dry out my lips like other long wearing formulas do. It does not flake or look odd, either.
This lightweight, highly pigmented lip color utilizes gel technology to coat lips in vivid color and intense shine. The chrome-like gloss provides pigment without traveling or fading. I always layer this gloss over my matte lip color, and it looks and feels perfect on my lips. It is highly moisturizing, which is wonderful, because my lips get chapped quickly when the weather gets cooler.
Creating a flawless eye look is super simple if you have the perfect mix of neutral, copper and bronze shades handy. Now you can turn everyday and night into a soiree with this super versatile 12-piece eye shadow collection. Filled with highly pigmented and silky smooth shadows, the four versatile matte shades, four satin shades and four shimmers work flawlessly together for all skin tones. Super blendable and anything but basic, this essential palette takes the guesswork out of your eye look. Just use the colors in the vertical rows from top to bottom for highlight, definition and drama.
It is almost as if his eye shadow palette was designed just for me. Every single color compliments my eye color and complexion. It is also absolutely perfect for fall.
Melt away makeup and nourish the skin with this gentle yet highly effective makeup remover for all skin types. Over a dozen natural oils and extracts combine to dissolve all traces of makeup including stubborn waterproof and long-wear makeup! Melt Away breaks down dirt, pigment and excess oils to keep skin looking clean, clear and radiantly shine-free!
This makeup remover is the best! It removes all of my makeup, and even my eye makeup without stinging my eyes. It is so perfect. And because my skin gets drier when the weather gets cooler, this makeup remover couldn't be better for this time of the year.
Here is a photo of me wearing all of the PÜR cosmetics shown above. Bring on Fall, I am ready!

In this photo, I am wearing the gorgeous lip color, "Cindy" which is such a beautiful color! I softened it with a soft pink gloss over the top and I love it! (I would also wear it bold for an evening look.) The lipstick itself is very moisturizing. I have worn it all day long and it has stayed bright and lovely. I am also wearing Jane Iredale's Retractable Brow Pencil in Brunette.

Everyday shampoo smells so amazing and makes my healthier-looking, shiny and soft. With a unique blend of essential minerals, it helps strengthen my hair. Mineral-rich clay gently cleanses and clarifies while hydrating Aloe and Vitamin E protect against breakage and damage. The Everyday conditioner also smells fantastic and makes my hair perfectly hydrated, silky and manageable.

Volcanic Stone gently polishes and cleanses skin to uncover improved texture and radiance. It contains naturally brightening antioxidants – Vitamin C, Green Tea, and Orange Oil to help restore even tone and boost skin's natural radiance. It also softens and soothes my skin with Shea Butter and nutrient-replenishing mineral water. This brightening cleanser contains aloe and rosemary leaf oil to soothe sensitive skin. My skin really glows after I use this amazing cleanser, and it allows my skin care serums and lotions to better absorb, since I have removed all of that dead layer of skin cells.

I wear foundation every single day to even out my skin tone and to cover up imperfections. I love Mineral Fusion's Pressed Powder Mineral Foundation. It is lightweight and leaves a smooth matte finish. It perfectly blends into my skin and leaves my complexion looking flawless.
To set my foundation and to keep shine at bay all day long, (especially on these hot, humid summer days) I use Mineral Fusion's Setting Powder. I apply it throughout the day to combat shine and to freshen my look. It is made with Kaolin Clay which absorb exess oil, giving me a matte look.

Pür Minerals is a mineral-based makeup and skincare company that has formulated high-performance products. Pür Minerals provides a total treatment experience for flawless results. I love their makeup! I received a sample of Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation to review.
(From their website) Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation is Designed to prevent, interrupt and correct today’s most troublesome skin concerns, the enhanced 4-in-1 collection uses proprietary encapsulated ingredients to smooth away the look of fine lines, combat visible discoloration and even-toned complexion. This lightweight, oil-free, dermatologist-tested formula offers all-day true color tone that won’t smudge, rub or fade. Enriched with super-hydrating Ceretin Complex, this foundation revelation draws vital moisture to the skin for a look so flawlessly fresh, you might forget you’re wearing makeup.
My experience: I absolutely love foundation. It is the one beauty staple that I would never want to be without. I am always looking for the very best foundation on the market, and Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation is definitely one of the best I have tried. It goes on evenly and enhances my skin while evening out my skin tone. I love how it provides full coverage and looks so natural. It feels like a second skin. It does not smudge at all, and I have noticed that my face does not get shiny after awhile like I have noticed when I wear most other foundations. I have not gotten one single pimple, either while using Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation. My two teenage daughters have tried it, and they love it, too. It definitely will not last long in my house. It comes in 9 natural shades and it has SPF 15, so you are protecting your skin while wearing this amazing foundation. I love it!

It is also important to know that they do not test on animals.
I was able to review one of their beautiful Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trios in Rebel.
Such pretty colors. I love how dense the pigmentation of the colors are, resulting in rich hues to enhance my hazel eyes. First I apply the darkest color to my lids, then I blend the rose color upward toward my brow, and then I add a touch of the lightest color to highlight my brow. I can apply it lightly for a more subtle look, or darker for a dramatic evening look. It is fun to blend and experiment with the colors. The best part is knowing that while glamming it up, I am also adding a product which contains skin enhancing benefits.
Also, these dazzling palettes express a broad range of moods and emotions. And with built-in firming ingredients and light-diffusing mineral spheres, each shade helps create a velvety smooth, line-free finish—even after the color comes off!
