When Ebates had their amazing 15% off deal last month, I jumped on the chance to try out a couple of beauty retailers that I had never ordered from before. PÜR Cosmetics was definitely at the top of my list — their Moonlight Glow Strobe Palette was calling my name. I ordered the strobe palette and a limited edition correcting primer (which is no longer listed on the PÜR site).
Despite my high hopes, shopping on the PÜR website left a lot to be desired and, sadly, so did their products.
Canadians should keep in mind that while PÜR does ship to Canada (and rather quickly at that) their prices are listed and processed in US dollars. Shoppers Drug Mart carries PÜR, but in my experience selection is pretty limited unless you go to a location with a full prestige Beauty Boutique. Otherwise I’ve never seen the brand take up much more space than an endcap.
I’ll cut right to the chase: if you’re interested in PÜR Cosmetics products, try before you buy, and then buy them at Shoppers. I would have passed on everything I purchased had I swatched them in stores or had a chance to see the packaging.
