Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Foundation SPF15 vs. Pur Minerals CC Cream SPF 40 Review & Swatches of Shades!

Pur Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum & Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation 
Pur Minerals CC Cream, NEW FOR FALL 2013 is $38 for 1.5 ounces (about $25.60/ounce);
where as
Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation $36 for 1 ounce;

PüR Minerals has been expanding from their typical pressed powder foundation & I for one couldn't be happier. I love the fact that their CRUELTY FREE, I love their company models, but I hate powder foundations. I think their new CC Cream is fabulous and it includes SPF 40 in addition to the neutral shade range.
I wanted to swatch Pür Mineral's new CC Cream for you all, but then I figured I should compare it to their 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation incase the shades were different. As you can see from below, they are....

The 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation is a typical long lasting formula meaning its transfer & water resistant, and best suited for normal to oily skin. Pur Minerals promises 14 hour wear, and I think that that's reasonable for someone with normal to dry skin to expect. If you have oily skin, you will have to adjust your expectations accordingly, but you've probably been doing that for a while already. I find the shade selection for the 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation to be a little on the beige side, and with only SPF 15, I  know that I personally much prefer the new CC cream who's shades are a much more reasonable undertone, has a SPF of 40, AND is about 30% cheaper per ounce than the 4-in-1 Liquid!

If you do decide to try the CC Cream, you may not want to prep the same way you normally would. It is a heavier formula so play around with it, but coverage is decent for a CC and it will live up to its promises of Concealing, Priming, Brightening, and so on,, as long as you give it a chance to live up to its fullest potential and play around with it.

No matter which of these you decide to try, go ahead and do it guilt free, because Pur Minerals remains dedicated to their Cruelty Free practices!
