The Pur Minerals palette comes in a sturdy cardboard compact. The outside is white with pretty silver embossings and the inside is black with various slots for the different products. The palette has a nice big mirror and it comes with a tutorial card that gives instructions on creating two different Instagram filter inspired looks.

Pur Minerals Big Look Mascara
Big Look Mascara:
This is a volumizing mascara, a best seller from Pur Minerals. The wand is silicone with a pretty standard design. I have yet to give this a try but from the looks of it, it would work very well for those looking for a little volume and definition.

Chateau Kisses Lip Plumping Lip Gloss in "Exposed":
This is a gorgeous peach nude with lots of subtle golden shimmers. The formulation is very lightweight and non-sticky. The color is quite opaque and the finish is plumping and shiny. The applicator is paddle-shaped for an even application.

Flash: Pretty champagne shimmer with a creamy texture.
Capture: Soft taupe matte, soft and pigmented.

Mineral Glow Bronzer: Soft bronze with subtle shimmers, the formulation is very lovely and not at all dry or patchy.
Savvy Blush: Mauve-y pink satin, super pigmented and very wearable!
Afterglow Illuminating Powder: Pretty pale champagne shimmer, rich and pigmented.

This is a pretty fantastic palette! Aside from a couple of disappointing shadows, everything is phenomenal and I personally love the color selection which is very everyday-friendly. In terms of packaging, the box looks cute but it is quite bulky and I wish Pur Minerals would transition into plastic compacts instead of cardboard ones. With that said, this is a great full-face palette with a good value!
