Pur Minerals Chateau Cheeks Cream Blush Launch for Spring

Pur Minerals Chateau Cheeks Cream Blush

Seems cream blushes are always a hit for Spring so the new Pur Minerals Chateau Cheeks Cream Blush ($18) arrive right on time for Spring.

Currently I’m in love with the Bobbi Brown Hibiscus Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks and this shade somehow awoken my need to start hauling out cream blushes from my stash. Lord knows I’m not a cream blush super fan but suddenly I’m wanting to snatch up cream blushes….

Pray tell where this weird lemmings come from?

Pur Minerals Chateau Cheeks Cream Blush are available in two shades with a formula that includes the anti-aging benefits of Resveratrox and Vitisin. Both these ingredients are take from French grapes and have been shown to soften the looks of lines while brightening the skin.

The formula is mineral oil, patrolatum, lanolin oil, and paraben-free

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.

    Hey Muse, how’s this year treating you so far? I know I hardly comment, but you’re still my number 1 beauty blogger!

    Pur Minerals is really stepping it up this year, girl! I love the look of the new lipsticks and now these blushes, I love cream blushes, especially at this price point. I only ear makeup when I go out (1 a week or so) so it’s hard to justify spending a lot on makeup, but $18 is super reasonable, especially if the ingredients are good. Any chance you can post their ingredient list?

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi Kharanya I’m great thanks! aw shucks thank you! Looks like their Spring selection is really pretty this! unfortunately I don’t have this product in hand so don’t know the ingredients did you check their website?

  • amy

    I don’t care about what’s *in* them, but I like what isn’t! Plus, both of those shades look like winners. Do any stores actually carry the brand, or are they only available online?

  • Kharanya

    You’re lucky not to have to care what’s in them, good for you. Some of us have to be super careful or send weeks/months recovering from negative reactions. It’s great to have more options, I was the most devastated person when I had to cut out most beauty products for a few years.

    • Isabella Muse

      I haven’t even tried/purchased them Kharanya…so I’m not really sure what it is in them. My skin is dry but not sensitive maybe check the website for the ingredients? Hope this helps! Sorry to hear about the negative reactions to products/ingredients.

      • Kharanya

        Thanks girl! I have dry sensitive skin too, but I STILL break out at 34 (you’d think this donkey would be too old for that ,eh?)and get contact dermatitis with certain ingredients.

        Darn, just spotted Bismuth Oxychloride in the lineup and argan oil *sigh*. I loved argan oil right up till I broke out in hives but Bismuth Oxychloride makes me breakout with a vengeance 🙁

        Oh well, I’ll just feast my eyes on the beauty porn and be seriously jelly of all you lucky ladies that rock this blush.

        • Isabella Muse

          no not at all, when you’re sensitive you’re sensitive never too old for break outs! Somedays I wish I was anything but dry! 🙁 I guess we all have our issues. le sigh….! what about those butter london cream blushes? not sure on the ingreds on those…but maybe that would be better formulated for you!?

      I try to stay away from any petroleum-based products, particularly on my “problem” areas, the mostnotable-the cheek area. I don’t have any particular sensitivities, but I have larger pores, which have dramatically declined in size since I made the change. I hope I didn’t come off insensitive to your plight, Kharanya! I’m just so excited to see a product on the market that is reasonably priced, and isn’t filled with petroleum by-products… As some with more “mature”, drier skin, I’ve been gravitating toward cream blushes, but so many seem to contain something in that family.

      • Kharanya

        It’s alright amy, I’m used to being poked fun at for eyeballing ingredients but it’s sweet of you to care. I also stay away from petroleum-based products and have large pores& dry skin, so I totally understand your excitement.

        I used whatever I got my hands on up till a few years ago when my face got leathery and painful after using Eucerin Redness Relief skincare. Since then I’ve assessed every cosmetic & toiletry purchase I make.

        I frequent a lot less beauty blogs than I used to b/c it’s so hard to ogle all the pretty cosmetics and be unable to use them 🙁

        It’s awesome that Muse also highlights brands with more natural ingredients, though I’ve been introduced to a lot of great cosmetics by some of you gals (and guys) here.(Hey Phyrra, you don’t know me but I totally love Fyrinnae, thank you!)

          aw you should tell her that 😀 she lurks around here but I’m sure she’d love to hear it! 😀

        • amy

          You’re the only other person I know who has large pores *and* dry skin! Iwas bbeginning to think I was alone in the world, LOL! It’s so hard to find foundation products that work for both… What, if any, do you use, or could recommend? Coverage isn’t a big issue for me, and I can always sheer out full-coverage. I found my HG in Revlon ColorStay Aqua Minerals, very recently, on clearance & DC’d…

  • Kharanya

    I know the feeling amy! It’s been trial & error for the last few years. Right now I alternate between Tarte’s Amazonian Clay foundation and Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream depending how much coverage I want, but I’ve been seriously loving the Tarte as I got a perfect match at last.

    Only downside to the Tarte is, it can dry you out if you don’t prep well, so I use Mychelle Hyaluronic Acid Serum followed by my sunscreen (if daytime) then my primer (Tarte Poreless or Missha M Signature Real)then apply my foundation and conceal with a damp Beauty Blender. I finish with a tiny amount of Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing powder since the humidity kills my makeup otherwise, despite my dry skin here in Texas, then sort of run my damp BB over it to remove the powdery look.

    If you like your current foundation, how about adding a pore refining primer to your routine? Also, the beauty blender has been a holy grail method of application for me for my foundation & concealer. I tried a beauty blender dupe I bought off amazon to try it out and I liked it a lot,but the beauty blender is much better and it lasts a lot longer than the knockoffs (knockoff 2 weeks before cracking, BB= 3 months & still going strong).

    You’ll pretty much have to experiment with primers to see what works for your skin & budget though. Honestly, skincare makes the most difference for me, but I really recommend a good primer & the beauty blender if you haven’t tried either yet with the foundations you already use.
