Pur Cosmetics Mystery Grab Bag May 2018 Review
Blending Crease Brush – Retail Value $18
This is a basic blending brush. The bristles are soft and did a good job of blending out eyeshadows, but I probably wouldn’t pay $18 for a brush of this quality.
Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Fever, Full-Size! Retail Value $18
When Pur says this is a velvet matte, they were not kidding! This genuinely felt velvet-smooth on my lips, and one coat was all it took for even application on my lips. Sometimes dark colors like this can be patchy, but I didn’t have that problem. This is a little vampy for my everyday style, but when the mood strikes I will definitely reach for this. The staying power could be better for a liquid lip, but it still lasts for a long time and the comfort in wearing it makes up for it.
Chrome Glaze High-Shine Lip Gloss in Heartbreaker, Full-Size! Retail Value $18
I am not a big lip gloss fan, and this formula is a bit too sticky for my liking. I did appreciate the shine it packed though, and the baby-doll pink color works really well. If I was a lipstick girl I would probably reach for this quite often, as it really does pack a shiny punch.
Here are the swatches of the two lippies.
Pur x Boxycharm Eyeshadow Palette – Retail Value $36
When I first pulled this out of the box, I was a bit bummed to see something so familiar—that is, until I remembered I didn’t actually get the March Boxycharm, so I didn’t already own this palette. I really like it! I feel like this palette can make multiple looks and has a good mix of standard and fun colors.
Here are the swatches!
Volume Vixen Mascara, Full-Size! Retail Value $21
I was pleasantly surprised with this mascara. I was able to build up fluffy lashes without clumping, and I felt like I was able to reach each lash with the brush. If I had one complaint it would be that the formula felt a bit dry so I needed to use more coats to get the look I was going for.
Here is a tutorial for the look I did using this box:
After applying a base of eyeshadow primer, I applied Purfect all over my lid.
Next, I took ATL to the outer corner of my eyelids and blended in small circles until the color was spread out around the outer third of my eyelid.
I then used the blending crease brush from this box and applied Bae into my crease in a windshield wiper motion.
I then used my fingers to pat BFF into the center of my lid before taking the blending crease brush to blend BFF into Bae and ATL.
Next, I patted charmer into the inner corner of my eyelids.
Finally, I used Boxy Black to line as close to my lash line as possible.
Here is one eye with a coat of the mascara and one without.
And here is the finished look. I applied my regular foundation and also applied the Velvet Matte liquid lipstick from this box. I felt smoking!
The Verdict: I was less than thrilled with the last Pur Mystery Box, but I think this box is definitely a winner! I really enjoyed getting the palette and the liquid lipstick, and the mascara was a quality mascara to receive as well. Considering this box cost $26.95 ($20 plus $6.95 shipping), I think this box has a stellar value of $111.
