Julie Campbell of Pur Minerals talks about staying a step ahead of the mineral make-up market


Company stepped up its European presence last year after entering Marks & Spencer

With just over a decade since it first launched, US based Pür Minerals has slowly but surely carved a trusted reputation in the mineral make-up market. Having stepped up its European presence last year after entering Marks & Spencer’s new beauty departments, Julie Campbell, the company’s VP of Marketing, talks about staying a step ahead of its competitors.

Tell us a bit about the history of the brand.

Pür Minerals was conceived in 2002 and is known as the pioneer of pressed mineral make-up. Our revolutionary 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup was the no mess alternative to loose mineral make-up. We were the first brand that could offer women portable minerals that were exclusively formulated with nourishing ingredients such as vitamin E and shea butter.

Who are your main competitors?

Women today have so many exceptional choices; therefore any colour brand could be seen as a competitor. However, Pür Minerals is distinctively different as our core focus is on perfecting the complexion. Instead of just covering up the skin, it’s our goal to correct the skin.
