Hey Beauts! I have a very exciting and multi-tasking product to share with you. PUR sent me most of their PUR Eye Polishes for me to try and I’ve used them for quite some time now so I am able to give you all of the specs of them and give you an in-depth review on these babies.
“Prep, prime and make your eyes pop in a blink. This pure pigment eye primer and top coat creates a crease-proof, long-wearing eye shadow base with a luminous metallic sheen.
These PUR Eye Polishes includes a pro smudge-resistant silicone applicator. The eye-opening formula glides on and builds with exceptional ease. These Eye Polishes can be used alone as an iridescent cream shadow or under mineral eye shadows for a more vibrant color that lasts.” — Pur Cosmetics

PUR Eye Polishes and Swatches…
Suede is beautiful olive shade that I adore. It helps create an amazing smoldering eye look when worn alone and intensifies my smoky eye when it worn under any eyeshadow.
Velvet is one of my favorite shades of the bunch. I love how purple and plum shades look on my eyes so that could be the reason for Velvet being my favorite of the bunch. I also love the Fuchsia iridescence it reflects in the light as well. It’s so beautiful!
Silk is the perfect shade if you want that nice taupe-y eyeshadow look. This one as well as the next two shades are perfect as eyeshadow bases as well. Silk is perfect alone or under any taupe eyeshadows if you want to intensify them.
Satin is another beautiful shade that can be worn alone as well as under any pinkish eyeshadow to make it appear more vibrant. Mixing this Satin and Velvet in an eyeshadow look is so stunning. I wish I was able to capture it in a makeup look I did…
Cashmere is the perfect champagne shade and goes well with any eyeshadow look. I used this one in one of my makeup tutorials and I loved the overall look I created using this as an eyeshadow base. I also love using Cashmere alone on the days I want to wear minimal makeup.
Overall these PUR Cosmetics Eye Polishes are pretty fantastic. I know that these come with a silicone applicator but I personally do not use them because I feel like I get a better application with my fingers. I also love how versatile these Eye Polishes are. I love using these as a eye shadow base and I noticed that it waterproofs my eyeshadow and keeps them put all day.
The mesh netting that is layered over the formula is interesting but seems to be in the way of accessing all of the product enclosed in the plastic jar. I store these Eye Polishes upside down so that gravity will takes its course with the formula. These are also perfect for enhancing the vibrancy of eyeshadows too.
Do I think these are a must-have? Most definitely! If are you interested in an new and versatile product that can be used under and over eye makeup than I say gives these a go.
