Review- PUR Mineral Glow Mineral Light Split Pan

Pür Minerals Mineral Glow/Mineral Light split pan is a mineral makeup powder compact that features a split-pan combo containing Mineral Glow and Mineral Light Specialty Powders. Like all Pür Minerals products, Mineral Glow and Mineral Light Face Powder are free of oil, alcohol, talc, fillers, fragrances and chemical dyes. Net Wt: .18oz/5.3g for $22.50

The PUR Mineral Glow Mineral Light Split Pan gives us makeup lovers that easy age-old excuse to buy something
new. It's two products in one! How utilitarian. One side holds a coppery hint-of-metallic bronzing powder while the other a shimmery light-reflecting highlighting powder. As a fair girl who occasionally likes the appearance of having been in the sun without actually having done so, finding a bronzer that does not go orange is a mission within itself. Luckily, this one does not go on orange or worse, turn tacky after time. But it is, alas, too gold for my skin tone. I am too pink for its sun-kissed goodness. The golden shimmer in the product would look lovelier on someone with a yellow-based skin tone. However, I think the highlighting powder is really special. It goes on soft and smooth from eyelids to cheekbones and it catches just enough light to look like your walking around with a hidden lighting crew whose sole purpose in life is to make you look flawless. My suggestion for the best application? Apply with a medium wide blush brush then tap gently into skin with a moisturizing toner sprayed onto a sponge. Viola! Subtle glimmery goodness.
