Hi there, my darlings! TGIF! I can't believe I finally get to say this...and really mean it! Don't get me wrong--I love my new position! LOVE it! But, the commute is killer, as I mentioned previously, and my day has just been drastically cut down. I literally do not know where my time goes. So, It got me thinking--what products can cut my getting ready routine shorter? Or what about those days when I need to get somewhere social right after work? What beauty products in my arsenal are true time savers...or rather, time saviors in my case? The answers lie in this post and a few things I tested  from PUR Cosmetics'. I'm sure I'll have more time savers by brand in the near future but for now, these definitely do the trick!

PUR COSMETICS Bare It All 4-in-1 Skin Perfector ($39.00)

By combining high-quality skincare ingredients with complexion-perfecting pigments, this new 12-hour demi-matte foundation instantly perfects the look of skin while helping to correct problem areas over time. Its weightless and full coverage formula masks imperfections, pores and fine lines all day without cracking, separating or fading – fitting into your busy lifestyle by eliminating the need for touchups throughout the day. Formulated with agave extract, green tea, ginseng, B vitamins and PÜR’s proprietary Ceretin® Complex, this unique formula moisturizes and plumps the skin while stimulating the skin’s renewal process and fighting signs of aging. Helping you love the skin you’re in, it’s makeup that gives you the confidence to bare it all.

PUR COSMETICS No Filter Blurring Photography Primer ($33.00)

Moisturize, color balance, prime and illuminate the skin in one step. This unique primer with prismatic blurring micro-pearls helps to color correct while age-defying skin care ingredients nourishes the skin and a vitamin-rich Energy Complex with moisturizing agave and essential fatty acids prep the skin for makeup application. Loaded with essential oils like Coconut, Olive, and Shea a drop of this into your foundation will result in a dewy yet shine-free finish that boosts radiance and masks imperfections for a picture-perfect complexion.

Let me start by saying that I do NOT have time nor do I intend to make time for a full face of foundation in the morning...that, too, definitely not in the summer. But that means if I ever need to head out after work, the dark circles and blemishes on my face will have a field day popping up in pictures. Can't have that, now can we? Which is why, I really like the Blurring Primer which can be mixed in with moisturizer or just smoothed on by itself. It immediately brightens my face and makes my skin tone more even. Plus, the shine-free finish means that my oily skin isn't annoyed with me.

The foundation I like because it's super light weight. Otherwise, believe me, I would steer clear. You can tell immediately from the pics below that it's a juicier, lighter voundation which still provides full coverage. The demi-matte finish is infinitely wearable, especially during the hotter months and I do believe that Tan (far left) serves me quite below. Golden Dark (second from left below) is also swatched.

As much as I hate to share unavailable products, this handy, portable, everything-you-need palette really deserved a mention! With a great range of shades and finishes, the eyeshadows can take you from day to night in a snap, while the blush-highlighter-contouring shade trio (bottom three swipes) take care of your urge to add a little definition to your features.

Special shout out to the Big Lash mascara, which gives me so much volume and length with that thick, comb-like brush! A little mascara can totally wake up tired, worked-all-day eyes!

Last but not least, the lipgloss dubbed Exposed is a pretty nude shade both for work and to pair with a smokey eye look for after hours. I'm not a huge fan of lipglosses but it's a pretty enough shade to throw on before running out the door in the morning.

  1. I really love their products, but haven't tried any of these!

  2. That primer is awesome and I really like the mascara too. You can't go wrong with their palettes either.

  3. I wish that Pur expanded their color range in foundation. The lightest one is too yellow and dark for me so as much as I want to like it, it just sits in my drawer.

  4. I haven't tried anything from this brand in eons. The palette looks divine

  5. Thanks for the great swatches!

  6. I really love the Pur brand. I still love their cc cream and mascara the best, oh, and the gorgeous blush palette that I have.

  7. That foundation sounds really tempting!

  8. Okay now I NEED that primer in my life. The fact that you can just put a drop in or put it straight on sounds perfect for me!
