2014 has seen some very innovative foundation formulas. Pür Minerals is changing the game again with the new Air Perfection Cushion Compact ($38). This all new foundation has a revolutionary, high-performance formula with skincare benefits. It even features natural, sourced Farm to Jar ingredients!

The foundation comes housed in a compact with full mirror–the top compartment has a sponge for applying the light-as-air foundation. The second compact contains the liquid dispensing cushion that the liquid foundation sits in. The whipped texture has a mousse-like consistency and feels ultra-lightweight on the skin. It blends flawlessly with the sponge that is included. Coverage ranges from sheer to medium–I prefer medium to cover the dark spots I have and the redness on my chin. Just dampen the sponge if you desire sheer coverage.

Now let’s talk about the good-for-your-skin stuff!

The most important: Babassu Oil. Native to Brazil, this palm-based ingredient nourishes a dewy soft complexion with intensely hydrating lauric and myristic acids and antioxidant vitamin E. I tried another foundation similar to this and did not like it at all; it made my skin look dry and emphasized every line and wrinkle I have. I truly think the Babassu Oil is what makes the difference in Pür Minerals Air Perfection Cushion Compact–I love the finish! When a brand touts a foundation as “dewy” I immediately think of “greasy,” yet this is not oily or greasy yet it IS hydrating, making it perfect for over 40 women. It glides on the skin miraculously not settling into lines and wrinkles!

More skincare bennies!

  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) – Helps soothe visible irritation for a clearer, more comfortable complexion
  • Sodium Hyaluronate – Provides texture-plumping hydration that softens the look of lines
  • Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil – Moisturizes, smooth and protect with antioxidant benefits
  • Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthron) Oil – Delivers a megadose of anti-aging amino acids and vitamins

Pür Minerals Air Perfection Cushion Compact is available in three shades: light, medium and tan. I chose medium and was a bit worried it would be too dark on my fair complexion but it’s works just fine. This foundation is so hydrating, with my combination skin, I don’t need a moisturizer underneath, however drier skin types probably will. The wear is good too, I can put on my makeup at 6AM and it’s still in place by 9PM!

    I tried It Cosmetics version of this but it just didn’t give my 54-yr old skin enough coverage. Bummer!
