Pür Sets a New Standard for Shade Inclusivity
The US brand has launched one of the most inclusive ranges on the market. The 4-in-1 Love Your Selfie foundation and concealer is separated into five shade families: light, medium, tan, dark and deep, with 20 options in each category. These are then broken down into three undertones: golden, pink and neutral.
To demystify the process of selecting the correct colour, Pür has created a customised tool called It’s a Match. It determines a suitable product via an online questionnaire, analysing factors such as skin colour, undertone and desired coverage. The brand has also partnered with foundation-matching platform Findation to help customers find the right shade by inputting a product from a competing brand.
As explored in our report Make-Up Projections 2019, smart brands are creating diverse ranges that are easier to navigate. Pür is a good example of this, as the numbering system helps consumers find their match. In addition, the brand’s Instagram page Pür Shade Finder features unretouched photos of 100 models wearing the shades, so customers can see how the formula will look on their skin tone.
Featuring the tag line ‘The complexion authority’, the brand’s 4-in-1 Love Your Selfie product also acts as a skincare hybrid. Hero ingredients, such as ginseng, green tea and vitamin B, help rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. Meanwhile, a patented Ceretin Complex helps smooth the skin and refine the texture, according to the brand.
