Pur Minerals is always trying to keep up with the latest and greatest foundation trends. Sometimes they have huge success, like with the Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Powder Foundation that founded the brand, but an aerated foundation application method is a risky proposition for sure.
Pur Minerals new 4-in-1 Liquid Veil Spray Foundation promises to be the ultimate solution to achieving a "flawless, airbrushed finish" while simultaneously delivering an assortment of moisturizing and beneficial ingredients.

Pur Minerals Liquid Spray Foundation is dispensed in a manner similar to other spray foundations like Dior SkinFinish AirFlash Foundation, The foundation is housed inside an aerosol can and can be applied by spraying the foundation directly onto your skin, or by spraying a brush and buffing onto the skin. Most will probably find that a brush is necessary to buff the foundation into skin regardless.

The Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Spray Foundation formula is initially airy and light when first sprayed. It then melts into a liquid, and will set to a natural matte finish, despite the fact that there are a fair amount of moisturizing ingredients present. Pur Minerals Liquid Spray is certainly one to consider if you want a matte finish but typically find matte finish foundations to be too drying.

Coverage is in the sheer/light to the lighter end of medium spectrum which is probably for the best because this allows Pur Minerals Liquid Veil to accommodate a greater range of skin tones with the limited selection of four shades.

Pur Minerals has created a really decent foundation with the new 4-in-1 Liquid Spray Foundation, but it will likely have a somewhat narrow appeal as it is best suited for normal-dry skin and many will have trouble finding a shade match. Then you must consider those that have an appropriate match will have to have the patience required to develop proper application technique. Lovers of other aerosol foundations like Sephora's or Diore's, will probably find Pur Minerals has created a suitable Cruelty Free alternative (for at least a few shades.)

Pur Minerals Spray Foundation may be a good option for people who have a tendency to over apply foundation because it is nearly impossible to apply too much product. Of course the downside is that it is difficult to build coverage to a moderate medium level; it will require 2-3 thin layers of foundation and allowing them to dry in between coats.

(You can see in the pictures exactly how much coverage you get. The picture above shows Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Spray Foundation which was sprayed generously, the picture on the bottom left shows how much coverage is left after Pur Minerals Spray Foundation dries, undisturbed & unblended.)
