Pur Minerals Beautiful Creatures Palette Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Are you going to see Beautiful Creatures tonight? Today I’m celebrating the launch of the movie with the Pur Minerals Beautiful Creatures Palette inspired by the film.

This gorgeous palette contains eight shades of shadow, gloss, and a lipliner all in colors inspired by the film and book, Beautiful Creatures.

The best part? The sweet $39 price tag!

Take a look!

The Pur Minerals Beautiful Creatures Palette is available for a limited time so I’d highly suggest picking it up as soon as you can. It’s been a while since I’ve been delighted with a palette so much and this won my heart over instantly!

The palette is filled with velvety, pigmented, easy to blend eyeshadows that create some seriously sultry looks.

You get:

  • Forbidden (Taupe)
  • Supernatural (Nude)
  • Siren (Moss)
  • Spellbound (Neutral)
  • Fate (Mushroom)
  • Cursed (Plum)
  • Secret (Pink)
  • Fantasy (Violet)
  • Eyeliner: Black Magic (Charcoal)
  • Lip Gloss: Lust (Sheer Pink)

This is a long slim line palette featuring a small mirror inside and a brush for application. The brush is actually a very good one and aids application and blending of the eyeshadows. No shedding, soft bristles, definitely a nice touch to add into the palette especially at this price.

The thing I loved about the palette was the fact I felt like I’d use EVERY single shade. It’s so rare to find a palette that you end up loving all the colors. I can honestly see myself reaching for this daily. The color combinations just go well together too so no guess work about what would work well with what. The colors all meld and blend together beautifully to create any number of different looks. The shadow formula, even the mattes ones, all have a smooth to the touch feel. These are velvety and on par with Stila’s formula but lack the frostiness I associate with Stila’s formula (which is a good thing). They blend onto eyes like butter with excellent color pay off. They also tend to work well together so you aren’t left with a muddy mess after blending, colors play happily together and contrast well. I believe this is the first time I’ve tried Pur Minerals Eyeshadows and must say if they are all like this I’ll be a customer for life!

Also included with the palette is an eyeliner and nude shade of gloss. The gloss formula is sheer with very little pigment but has a plush feel with a glassy finish. It doesn’t have a ton of tackiness to it but still wears strong. The eyeliner pencil is a traditional pencil formula that works well on the lash line with tug-free application and excellent pigment however, it didn’t work well on my waterline sadly.

Overall, I’d say Pur Minerals did a heck of a great job with this palette. The little extras (a brush, eyeliner, and gloss) plus the eight user friendly eyeshadows makes this an excellent purchase. I even felt like the warmer, earthy shades definitely inspired visions of the books for me.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    That looks great! I really like the look you created with it. I noticed there is some sparkle under your eye in the last photo (close-up). Is that a product you’ve applied or is it fall-out from the shadow?

    • the Muse

      thanks lyn. sorry that’s a highlighter I used not fall out from the shadows. the flash from the camera makes it appear very shimmery, sorry :-/

  • 00trayn

    PRETTY! I was oogling this palette in Sephora because the colors were so well done! Pretty neutrals with a few fun pops of color. Sigh… now I want it after seeing the swatches! I already have so many palettes tho… such a conundrum.

  • amy

    This is sooo gorgeous, and *perfect* for dark eyes, but I have way too many similar shades. The colors actually remind me of the LORAC Private Affair palette, only less “finicky”.

  • Caitlin

    Oh, shoot. That is a really good looking palette. I was doing so well on my no buy. XD

  • Amy

    Thanks so much for the detailed review, Muse!
    I’m so happy I found this at Ulta.
    It is gorgeous and a great deal!

    • the Muse

      I agree amy ;-D it really is a gorgeous palette and fantastic shadows! great formula ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Daemonswolf

    I love the twinkle in your eye! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I want this palette so badly now.

  • Rebecca

    ok, i just ordered. It’s all your fault, Muse, for helping me justify my beauty obsessions.(lol). BTW, you were right about the Nars finishing powder. Love it!

    • the Muse

      LOL Rebecca I promise you will LOVE it ;-D amazing palette ;-D hehe! I am so happy to hear that! I’ve been using it daily, it really prefects my finished makeup ;-D might need another one at this rate hehe!

  • Bettie

    Shoot, I want this! What perfect colors for my eyes and skin tone!

    But I can’t justify it after just letting myself get the Naked palette. Giveaway pretty please?! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Phyrra

    It’s a lovely neutral palette. We’re going to see the movie tomorrow night.

  • charlotte

    Love the close up photo of the eyes, thank you. Please include in future reviews.

    Tried to pick this up today at Ulta and they were completely sold out.

  • Petitez

    Gorgeous palette! Unfortunately it is not for sale in my sunny island. >.<
    Love the look you created!

  • CharlieW

    Your eyes look amazing! This palette looks fab. Once again a brand that you don’t find in South Africa ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

  • angela

    Hey Muse,

    Did the colors seem to wear well and throughout the day? Do you think they’ll be releasing future palettes along with the sequels? It will be interesting to see.

    Thanks for such informative, honest, and fun reviews.


    • the Muse

      hi angela I’m not sure that would be cool!!!! I’d buy! If I hear anything will def let you know! Thanks so much so glad you like the review ๐Ÿ™‚ the colors wore strong for me throughout the day with (and without primer)…no fading, creasing around hour seven but very minor ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope this helps!

  • Misty

    Thank you so much! I have been eyeing this palette for a while, but having never tried Pur MInerals I was waiting for a reliable review and swatches. I am headed to Ulta tomorrow!
