Review: Pur Mineals Mineral Light

Up for review today we have Pur Minerals Mineral Light. I got this highlighter in a surprise box from the shopping Channel a few months ago, and have recently started playing around with it. This is a product that I probably wouldn't choose on it's own, as I am fairly new to using highlight and I think I prefer cremes or liquids over powders, but I am getting good use out of. Although, not in the way it was originally intended..

"Pur-ect Use: Place strategically on the face or body, or wherever you would like light to be reflected." - from compact

I guess I should start by saying that this product completely disappears on me. When I first used it, I applied it like I would a highlighter: a bit down my nose and above my cheek bones. I didn't see anything. I figured the lighting was bad, so I went to the window to get a better look in natural light. Still nothing. On my second attempt, I gave up trying to use this as a highlight and decided to use it as a setting powder. Bingo!

Click for full size... can you see the hint of shimmer?

While this product does have a bit of shimmer in it, it completely disappears on my face. The powder is super smooth and natural looking. I don't have any issues with oiliness through out the day though, so I can't say how well it would work for oil control.

I probably wouldn't buy this product again - The Shopping Channel was selling it for$29.50 CAN, and it may be discontinued as I can't find in on the Shopping Channel site or Pur Minerals (it is available in a half pan with Mineral Glow) but if you happen to have this product it makes a great setting powder, but if it is highlighting you are going for I would pass.

Have you tried this product? Did it work as a highlighter for you?

Your review is good - I've tried as well but didn't care for it much.  That 'hint of shimmer' is a bit gaudy in wacky light situations.
