Pur Minerals & Beautiful Creatures Collaborative Palette || Review




I received this gorgeous Pur Minerals palette which was inspired by the movie, Beautiful Creatures. It plays on the light and dark aspects and is really about choosing who you want to be when you apply it, do you want to be darker? or lighter? good or bad?

Beautiful Creatures was released in February at the cinema's and is a film about young love and the struggles between good and bad. Having read the book I seriously cannot wait to see the film. I am desperate to know how similar the book and the film are as I know some stick quite closely like Twilight and some completely change it up. 

This palette however is made up of 8 eyeshadows, 1 brush, 1 eyeliner and 1 lipgloss. I hadn't previously tried Pur Mineral's although it was on my wishlist. I've read so many great reviews on the brand that I wanted to test them for myself. I did think they would be awesome but didn't realise how awesome until now. 

I swatched the palette below, you can see a definite change from the wet and dry swatches. You can also get even more colour depth when you apply with a sponge applicator these were swatches using the brush provided. 



The colours in order are from left to right on both swatches:
Forbidden, Supernatural, Siren, Spellbound, Fate, Fantasy, Secret, Cursed. 

Forbidden : A dark taupe. 
Supernatural : Shimmery nude with hints of pink and white. 
Siren : A cool khaki brown with hints of silver. 
Spellbound : This is more of a matte nude than the other nudes. This would also be great on the inner eye and brow bone.  
Fate : Shimmery mushroom toned brown. 
Fantasy : This is actually a violet purple with brown undertones. 
Secret : The lightest shimmery pink. This would be great as a highlighter also. 
Cursed : A rich plum with black undertones. 


These are self-explanatory really. The black heart is the Black Magic shade of charcoal eyeliner, I've smudged it slightly to show how soft and lush this is. The lip gloss heart is Lust. Lust is a nude shade on the lips. Here's a swatch of it in action.  


It balances out the tone (remembering that I have Fordyce spots which leave my lips looking as though they have permanent 80's style lip-liner around them) of the lips and makes them glossy and non sticky. It's a win-win. 

This palette is only available in the US at the moment as it is limited edition so I'm not sure if they plan on bringing it over here.  If they do I would definitely recommend you snatch it up as these will go fast.
