Love Your Skin + Learning Your Skin Type

Our complexion is constantly evolving, so understanding your skin’s specific needs is no easy task…even for the pros! From external factors, like weather, to internal contributors, like diet and hormones, it’s common to notice a shift in the skin’s appearance and behavior over time. As the body’s largest organ, it’s important to take the time to learn your skin’s particular needs to help achieve and maintain a complexion you love.  

Here are the top PÜR product recommendations, by skin type:

  • Dry Skin
    Struggle with flakiness and tightness of the skin? Noticing visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles? Can your skin become rough and scaly? If so, you likely have dry skin. Dry skin can come from a wide range of factors but have no fear! The right topical serums and moisturizers can help nourish and soothe the skin’s appearance for a visibly radiant, healthy-looking complexion. Soak It Up Intense Hydrating Moisturizer is the ultimate thirst quencher for dry skin types. Made with a unique, oil-free formula, this decadent, dewy cream provides both immediate relief from dryness and long-term moisture loss prevention to keep skin looking and feeling its best. If you’re on-the-go and looking for a refreshing boost of hydration, Miracle Mist Hydrating Spray is for you! Instantly moisturize dry, tired and stressed skin with this transformative blend of more than 70 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids.

Primer Match: Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow
Add a dose of radiance to dull, tired and stressed-looking skin, while minimizing the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles and imperfections.

  • Oily/Blemish-Prone Skin
    Visibly enlarged pores, unwanted shine and persistent breakouts are common characteristics of oily/blemish-prone skin. If you’re looking to keep excess oil and pesky blemishes at bay, armor up with a skin-clarifying regimen that will help promote a healthier-looking complexion. Give skin the perfect pick-me-up with Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque that’s packed with Pascalite Clay to help unclog pores, clarify skin and gently exfoliate all skin types with an effective blend of natural clays and soothing botanicals.  For any everyday cleanser that does the trick, try Joystick Exfoliating Deep Cleanser that cleanses, exfoliates and tones congested, acne-prone skin for a smoother, brighter-looking complexion.

Primer Match: Make It Matte Oil Mattifying Primer
Oily skin has met its match! This versatile blotting stick instantly mattifies and perfects the skin without overdrying, leaving behind a shine-free look that’s comfortable.

  • Normal Skin
    If neither of those skin characteristics sound familiar, you may fall under the normal skin type. Easily remove any stubborn face or eye makeup with the Melt Away Makeup Emulsifier that utilizes more than a dozen natural oils and extracts to dissolve all traces of makeup.
    Primer Match: 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Energize & Rescue
    Formulated with probiotics, aloe, caffeine and coconut water, this primer helps smooth and soothe the skin before makeup application while improving skin hydration and reducing the appearance of redness.
  • Mature Skin
    PÜR’s secret to achieving a smoother, younger-looking complexion is in its proprietary technology, Ceretin® Complex. The Ceretin® Serum Age-Defying Concentrate is the perfect morning and night serum to help brighten the skin’s appearance, moisturize the skin and fight against visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Follow this serum with skin-loving Get A Lift Age-Defying Moisturizer, which is clinically proven to visible firm sagging skin and improve the look of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
    Primer match: No Filter Blurring Photography Primer
    This unique primer is made with prismatic blurring micro-pearls to help color correct the skin while age-defying skincare ingredients nourish the skin.

Beauty—PÜR and Simple

Black Model with Heart Shaped Moisturizing Primer on Cheek and Face with Clean Good Ingredients

Kicking off the New Year means reevaluating your goals, picking up healthy habits and committing to achieving the life you crave. For some, that may look like a brand-new gym membership or an inspiring travel itinerary, but for many it could simply mean prioritizing overall skin health by implementing more good-for-you ingredients into your beauty and skin care routine.

Overwhelmed? Don’t be! While the sound of decoding the ingredient list of your favorite products may sound daunting, PÜR has developed a unique formulation standard that delivers all the beauty you love with none of the ingredients you don’t. That’s right—indulge in high-performance beauty products that help transform the look and feel of skin with innovative formulas, proprietary technology and unmatched color payoff that will give you both immediate and long-term results.

Here’s a peek into PÜR’s formulas that not only help cover skin imperfections, but help correct its overall appearance:

  • Ceretin® Complex
    Don’t be fooled by the name—there’s nothing complex about this skin care miracle! Packed with a powerful blend of retinol, ceramides and proprietary skin care ingredients, this skin-perfecting ingredient mix helps exfoliate, brighten and smooth the skin’s appearance, boost the intake of vital moisture and fight against the visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.
    Bonus: Ceretin® Complex provides transformative results without breaking the bank! Many ingredients found in the mix can be found in the market for well over $100.
  • Energy Complex
    Antioxidants are the skin’s best friend and this multivitamin combines ginseng, vitamin B and green tea to help energize the skin’s metabolism and encourage natural skin renewal for a healthier-looking complexion.

With beauty products, what you formulate without is often just as important as what you formulate with, so breathe easy knowing this cruelty-free line formulates without:

  • Animal testing
    Innovative beauty should never be a burden on anyone, so these good-for-your makeup and skin care products are completely free of animal testing.
  • Parabens
    With controversy surrounding the use of parabens, PÜR uses other preservatives, like phenoxyethanol, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and caprylyl glycol.
  • Gluten
    Gluten sensitivity is common, so enjoy the makeup you love by choosing from PÜR’s several gluten free options.
  • Talc
    To eliminate any concern about talc being contaminated with asbestos, PÜR uses ingredients like mica instead.
  • Petroleum
    PÜR formulates with botanically derived ingredients, like jojoba oil and shea butter, to help moisturize the skin.
  • Mineral Oil
    Mineral Oil is a petroleum derived ingredient, so PÜR formulates with clean, botanical ingredients like argon oil, that are purified and good for your skin.
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
    Instead of formulating with sulfates, PÜR relies on gentle surfactants to help cleanse skin without disrupting its natural barrier.

Get a 5-Minute Makeover With The Quick Pro Collection

We made makeup easy , a long time ago. Watching YouTube tutorials can be a little frustrating. It can convince you that a “no makeup makeup” look requires at least 12 products and that an ultra-glam look takes at least 55 minutes. This is all false.  Well, you can use 12 products to look bare-faced but you don’t have to, and a full-coverage and flawless look can be fast and simple.

The PÜR & Simple philosophy is the cornerstone of our multitasking makeup. We make reaching complexion perfection easy for every skin type starting with our 4-in-1 complexion collection. Whether it’s a concealer or foundation, light coverage or full, our multitasking makeup enables you to skip a step (or three!) However, the easiest way to get your makeup routine down to 5 minutes or less is to use the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation.

“I have been using this for 10-plus years now and love it,” wrote a customer in a review. “I think it is much much better than any of the other mineral makeup out there.”

There is nothing easier than the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation. This buildable medium to full coverage foundation helps even skin tone and acts as a concealer, finishing powder and broad-spectrum sun protectant. It only takes 60 seconds to apply and if you need to reapply, this chic and perfectly portable compact fits into your bag without making a mess.

“I have VERY sensitive skin and this is the only foundation that hasn’t irritated it,” according to a customer review.

The 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation is recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists because its infused with skincare and doesn’t contain any cheap ingredients that can irritate your skin. The 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation and all PÜR’s complexion products contain Ceretin Complex , gentle yet highly effective encapsulated retinol and hydrating ceramides to help even skin tone and minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, redness and blemishes. Plus, all PÜR’s makeup is cruelty free and doesn’t contain parabens, talc, petroleum, mineral oil or sodium lauryl sulfates.

“The bottom line is this does it all and has all the ingredients that I want in a foundation,” wrote Beachnut22 in a review. “I have tried everything from Bare Minerals to every other brand name under the sun” I will probably never try another foundation.”

As for the finishes touches, grab a Love Your Selfie 2 palette to finish your look. Each palette has coordinating goof-proof shades that work together for a flawless look in less than five minutes.

What is Ceretin Complex?

It’s true. Most makeup is full of things you can’t pronounce and ingredients that allow you to look amazing, but aren’t great for you skin. When PÜR began, it was important that we were thoughtful about improving the look and feel of the skin and we wanted to make it easy. Our goal has always been to create multitasking, uncomplicated beauty. However, we weren’t interested in creating more makeup that would aggravate skin, clog pores and require professional application.

We wanted to make makeup better. This is why all of our complexion products contain pure mineral pigment that is ground to the smoothest texture. We bind our minerals with moisturizing Shea Butter and soothing Vitamin E for a like-skin finish that is breathable, buildable and natural unlike cakey clays that mask the skin or loose powders that make a mess. We formulate with no harsh chemical dyes, irritating talc, alcohol or preservatives so your skin looks flawless without all those cheap and unnecessary fillers.

We added skincare to take our complexion products to the next level. (We aren’t globally known as The Complexion Authority for nothing.) Our state of the art skincare infusion was a revolutionary approach to healthier makeup. Our proprietary Ceretin® Complex contains gentle yet highly effective ingredients including encapsulated nonirritating retinol and hydrating ceramides. This multitasking hero has been clinically proven to help lighten up dark spots and uneven skin tone, minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the appearance of redness and blemishes. Starring first in our 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation, the cult classic has become a nationwide favorite and more than 10 million compacts have been sold around the world. Ceretin® Complex is a part of our DNA and is included in all our complexion products from our tinted moisturizer to our  long-wear formulas.

For those that want to keep it au natural, the Ceretin Complex is also available a serum. The Ceretin Serum Age-Defying Concentrate can be used in your daily age management skincare regimen to keep your skin fresh and youthful-looking. It also contains exfoliating Lactic Acid and nourishing fruit extracts to keep your skin looking its best. For the ultimate at home facial, layer it on after your Dirty Girl. Your freshly exfoliated skin will allow the serum to penetrate deeper for faster results and an improved complexion.

THE BEST BEAUTY LOOKS TO TRY FROM NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

New York Fashion Week is our favorite gentle reminder that the thrill of summer is indeed over. However, if we have to say goodbye to long sunny days at least New York Fashion Week leaves us with some inspiration to get us through the chilly grey days ahead. What we loved about the Spring/Summer 2018 lineup is its focus on bright vibrant color and graphic accents. It had us thinking, if we must wait for the clothes, can’t we try some of these beauty looks now? Here are some of our top beauty looks from the Spring/Summer 2018 shows thus far.

TRY BLACK

Tom Ford kicked off New York Fashion Week and ditched his See Now, Buy Now model to go back to the traditional runway show. His hot pink suits, bright orange trench and cobalt blue separates were his trademark mix of opulence and edge when paired with radiant skin, glossy bare lip, full brows and thick black liner. Our next desk to date night look may not need a bold lip. Maybe it just needs a broad stroke of On Point Liquid Eyeliner in VIP and Sculpt A Brow.

TRY WHITE

Just when we thought no one wore white eyeliner anymore, we found some bold inspo at the Ulla JohnsonTracy Reese and  Assembly New York Show. The early 2000s white eyeliner in the waterline trick is making a comeback. Assembly artists paired the look with futuristic aviators and took the look one step further by drawing a white line down the center of the bottom lip mimicking lip ring nostalgia. At the Ulla Johnson show, a white line was drawn just under the lash line from the inner corner of the eye almost to the center. Another white line was drawn just under the lash line pointing upward and outward past the corner of the eye. This can be easily recreated with an eyeliner brush and the Rarity shade in PÜR’s My Little Pony: The Movie Collection Eyeshadow Palette . For less of a stark white and an on-the-go fix, opt for the pale pink highlight on the Wake Up Brow Dual-Ended Brow Pencil. Use the other end to fill in the brows for a “these are natural” look.

TRY PINK

With the rise of Millennial Pink and this clever lipstick hack, we don’t foresee the pretty-in-pink trend going anywhere anytime soon.  At the Brock Collection and Self-Portrait shows, rose-colored smokey eyes were paired with frilly ultra-feminine dresses in florals, polka dots, stripes and stars.  Beauty blogger Hailie Barber is already a fan. She used the PÜR’s My Little Pony: The Movie Collection Eyeshadow Palette to create her pink look using Pinkie Pie. Mix with Fluttershy or Twilight Sparkle for the perfect hue. Pink eye shadow could be the new red lip for spring. Want to switch it up? Self-Portrait created a pink lemonade effect by adding a yellow shade (try Kindness in the same palette) to the outer corners of the lid. We would pair it with On Point Liquid Eyeliner to toughen up the look for day.

TRY YELLOW, BLUE OR GREEN

At Tracy Reese, who we love for making everyday clothing more whimsical and fun, we saw a paired down look that is just as fun as the multi-step, multi-palette looks we’ve become obsessed with on YouTube. She proves each season that well-dressed doesn’t have to be fussy. With neon floral dresses to all white ensembles and sequined separates, we realized that maybe our day to night look just needs a pop of bold, bright color. It’s easy to add a bold red lip (sure, the designer paired a pretty red lip with a magenta coat dress that we wished we could have for fall!), but what if you made the eye the focal point? (Do you see a trend here?) In the presentation we saw several looks that put the PÜR’s My Little Pony: The Movie Collection Eyeshadow Palette to good use. We saw a bold yellow (try Kindness), kelly green (try Loyalty) and cobalt blue (try Rainbow Dash) statement eye. It’s as easy as wetting a shadow brush and packing color on the lid only. No need to add shadow to the under eye or define the crease. The same look can be achieved by using your finger at your desk. (Have a makeup wipe available for a quick cleanup.) It’s a perfect look for an afternoon brunch date or an after-work dinner.  It’s sure to add a pop of color to camel coats and black outerwear.

What’s our biggest takeaway from New York Fashion Week? Your next beauty moment is bold and bright.

“This collection was inspired by all the different kind of women I work with,” says Ortega. “I work with so many types of skin colors and ethnicities so I thought: Hmmm, what palette can every single one of my clients use? So, I created something versatile!”

All of the shades were personally named by Etienne and represent a personal moment or memory in the artist’s life: Adobe, Billionaire, Bossy, Dreamer, Faux, Galaxy, Legend, Lola, Midnight, Monii, Muddy, Paradise, Penny, Popular, Stripped, Zenon, 1988, 3 AM.
