I love a full-face of makeup but I don’t always have time to spend hours blending and coordinating colors. The Pur Vanity Palettes ($49.00) were designed with your busy lifestyle in mind – combining shadow, blush, bronzer and highlighter in one chic little compact. Dream Chaser contains neutral shades for subtle day looks and for a night out, Goal Digger creates glamorous contrast.
What makes these palettes unique is that they function as mini vanities on-the-go. The mirror pops up and elevates to aide with application which is also great for vacation and quick touch-ups.
Goal digger is my favorite because the shades are rich and prominent. Although the pigments are formulated for different areas of the face, they all make great eye shadow and I like pairing the smoky plum and luminous pink blush. The pigments are smooth and well pigmented but the glitter shades (silver and deep blue) have a sheer finish that require more layering for full-coverage. The highlight adds a pop of gorgeous illumination and the bronzer is dark enough to contour and create definition.
Dream Chaser has a few warm shadows for sculpting and much lighter blush and highlight shades. There isn’t enough color variation and vibrancy in this palette to suit my style but the pigments are silky and well made – great for blending and laying.
