Pür Minerals 'Secret Crush' Eyeshadow Palette Review

Monday, 7 December 2015

Hello Beauties, I hope you all had a great weekend! This weekend I took a trip to the cinema (something I rarely do) to see The Dressmaker which was absolutely brilliant and completely not what I was expecting, and then I went for a nice 'catch up' meal in Leicester Square with a friend from Uni to plan our trip to Munich this week! Anyway, it seems like forever since I sat down and did a proper beauty review for you all as I've been focussing on some of the more 'advice' posts recently after being inundated with emails asking me questions about my blog and how I keep it running. So, today I thought I would share with you all the Pür Minerals 'Secret Crush' palette as it's been my go-to for everyday looks recently. 

The 'Secret Crush' palette is described as a way to add a touch of luxury to your everyday eye look with eight ultrachic nude shimmers and velvety satins. As you can see from the photo, the shades range from the very light 'highlight' colours to the darker smokey nudes, and it also includes a black which I always think is a nice idea as it means you've got liner included in the palette. I think all of the colours are absolutely stunning, but my favourites have to be Admirer and Infatuation as they both have a slight olive green tone to them mixed in with the gold and bronze shimmer, making it the perfect everyday neutral with a difference. 

The one thing I would say though, is that the matte shades are nowhere near as brilliant as the shimmers. The shimmers are smooth, buttery and pigmented (similar to the likes of Urban Decay) but I found the mattes to be slightly chalky, hard to blend and not as buttery as described - more so with the darker mattes than the lighter highlight shades. This isn't a huge problem for me as I'll always be more likely to use the shimmery shades instead of the mattes, but it's a little disappointing when the shimmers are so good. 

Overall, I really do like this palette and I've been reaching for it a lot recently (I always see this as a sign of a good palette as I have over 25 of them!), it's just a shame about the matte shades. It's also worth mentioning that Pür Minerals do not test on animals, so if you're going cruelty free with your makeup, they may be worth checking out. The Pür Minerals 'Secret Crush' palette is available from HQ Hair here. 

Lots of Love,

  1. The fact they're cruelty free is amazing, so many other companies should follow in their footsteps. It looks like a lovely palette with some gorgeous shades, it's a shame the mattes aren't the greatest!

  5. Amazing colours, and they look so pigmented! These bronzes give me life haha!


  6. This is such a cute palette i love the colour infatuation! ive never heard of this brand before


  7. This is such a beautiful palette! I've never heard of Pur but you've definitely caught my attention. I love how they've incorporated the deep navy shade 'rumour'. Most neutral palettes stay away from deeper tones and I think blues are beautiful - but they're so rarely in palettes like these! I'm impressed!
