Alima Pure - A Review

Thanks to Fig & Sage for the logo image. "Put a bird on it." ~Portlandia
Now that I have worn each of my Alima Pure samples, I wanted to share a review since many have asked me what I think of their products.  First off, the only products I tried were eyecolors, luminous shimmer blush and organic nourishing lip balm.

Alima Pure as a brand is a wonderful alternative.  Their packaging is adorable.  They are very eco friendly and animal friendly and everything they make is as natural as mineral make up can be.  They are Leaping Bunny certified as well as Certified Natural Cosmetics.  Everything on their site is rated 0-2 on Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. They are cruelty free, even their brushes are free of animal products. They donate at least 1% of their revenue to environmental organizations.  The list goes on and on.  This is a great company doing a lot for natural beauty and the environment.

Their prices aren't bad at all, very comparable with other mineral make up lines if not a lot better than some I have seen. They send 2 free samples with every order. Their shipping is fast and everything comes packaged well. They have a full satisfaction policy, if you don't love it, you can return it.  Their products have been seen in Real Simple magazine, Whole Living magazine, Natural Health magazine, Natural Solutions magazine and many more.  Alicia Silverstone frequently talks about their products on her blog, The Kind Life.

Alima Pure Eyecolors are great.  They have a simple array of colors so you won't be too overwhelmed...unless you want to buy them all.  I tried out some neutrals, some greens and some purples since they are what I wear most.  They also sent me some free samples with my order so I got to try out more shades than I selected which is nice.  It gave me more variety to work with. Since I am a sucker for sparkles, the Luminous Shimmer Eyecolors and liners were my favorites.  I posted looks and swatches using all the colors I ordered so you can go back in my blog and see them.  The greens were my absolute favorites but the purple look came out great too.  I hope to order most of them in full size eventually.  ***Edited to add: Eyecolor samples are no longer available but samples of all other items are still able to be ordered***

Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Blush was the big surprise here.  I am in love with this blush.  It is gorgeous!!! I tried Black Raspberry and Tea Rose and think I would wear these everyday if I could.  I just ordered a full size Black Raspberry because it is that pretty.  I love the glow it gives to my cheeks along with some healthy color.

The Organic Nourishing Lip Balm is great too.  It comes in a thin tube, very cute packaging.  It is similar to the tinted lip shimmers from Burt's Bees if you have tried those.  I tried Fig and keep reaching for it so I ordered a couple more colors to try.  It is all natural and so gentle on my lips.  The color is really rich and pretty too and the lippie is creamy.
