Quick Pick: Pur Minerals Chateau Cheeks Cream Blush in Flirt

Pur Minerals is one of those brands I think is really underrated - they do some lovely mineral makeup which isn't a massive faff to use, and which doesn't compromise pigmentation.  This Chateau Cheeks cream blush is exactly that - an easy to use, creamy blush which blends beautifully and leaves a lovely soft sheen on the cheeks.  The sheen is great for an extra-easy highlighted effect, but does mean that the texture is quite emollient, making it a better option for dry skin types rather than those with oily skin.

Flirt is a lovely rosy pink which isn't too warm or too golden, meaning it goes well with my cool skin - it's neutral enough that I think it'd work well on those with warm or cool skintones.  A single swipe gives a soft flush, and it's easily buildable if you like a stronger pop of colour on the cheeks.

I suspect Pur Minerals would do a whole lot better if it were priced a little more competitively - this blush is £19.50, placing it firmly in the same price range as Bare Minerals, who splash a lot more on marketing and promotions than Pur do.  Still, performance wise it's just as natural and mineral based, and a whole lot more portable, particularly for those looking for a blush which gives a bit of a glow.  Find it now at Marks and Spencer.
