I have been using mineral makeup for 5 years now. Trying out many different brands eventually led me to products I was really happy about. Just recently I was planning to make a blog post about my all time favorite beauty products but I had to postpone it because there was a big change in my makeup bag. Hint: I discovered something even better.
The biggest issue I’ve had with mineral makeup is that the result can be powdery & dry. And I’m one of those who’s obsessed with everything radient, glowy & luminous. So when reading the names of Alima Pure products, I was intrigued. Luminous shimmer blush, radient finishing powder, satin matte foundation… Will they work as promised?
The answer is YES. Honestly, this brand changed my makeup game completely. First application and I was in love! It was just as radient, glowy & luminous as promised.
Alima Pure is a luxurious mineral makeup brand with products that are crafted from the purest natural ingredients. Their formulas are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dimethicone, petroleum, talc, bismuth oxychloride, and nanoparticles. Also they’ve never tested on animals. I think that says a lot about the brand.
If you haven’t tried any mineral foundations or you’ve had some bad experiences, I suggest you to keep reading!
Alima Pure Satin Matte foundation is one of their bestsellers and with a reason. First of all it comes in 45 shades which is great for people who are always struggling to find the right one. Because of its hypoallergenic ingredients, it is also suitable for very sensitive skin. I have always struggled with mineral powders making my skin look dry and flakey but this one doesn’t do it! I feel like the name “Satin Matte” is describing the finish very well. For application I like to use a mini kabuki brush and with gentle circular motions I keep applying the product until satisfied with the coverage. It is easily buildable and it has an amazing coverage creating a beautiful base canvas. “Beige 4” is the shade I have but it’s a bit dark for me right now as the summer is almost over and I’m not that tanned anymore. I will go and pick up a lighter shade, so I can mix & match.
Alima Pure powder concealer is probably my favorite Alima Pure product. I got already excited when I was just reading the description and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint. For me it’s too heavy to use creamy concealer + setting powder underneath my eyes, daily. I don’t need that much coverage. But I do need a little. So this little product is like an answer to my prayers. Think of it as a brightening powder with concealer coverage. But remember that a little goes a looong way with this product. I like to apply it to my chin, nose, between the eyebrows and underneath my eyes. I also love it for cleaning up the contour on my cheeks & making it more precise. It is such a good product! Comes in 4 different shades and I use “Sand.” I feel like it’s not too dark, too light or too yellow. Just perfect!
Alima Pure Radient finishing powder is my second favorite product of this line. With other mineral makeup brands I haven’t really been into finishing powders. I think of them as another layer on my face. But for the sake of this review I tried out this one and I’m so happy that I did! Like the name says “Radient finishing powder” and this is exactly what it does – it creates a radient base and blends everything together. I use the shade “Augusta” as it is for medium skintones.
Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer blushes have beautiful pigments with a touch of shimmer. They come in 5 different shades. I picked “Freja” but I also like ”Rosa” & “Leigh.” I feel like a lot of people skip this step but for me blush is a must. After creating this beautiful and flawless base, you need to add some color and depth. Otherwise the result will be very flat. “Freja” creates this naturally blushed look and I love it. If you’re struggling with your skin being too shiny, you can easily just use this blush and skip highlighter as it already has some glow to it.
Last but not least I tried Alima Pure highlighter in the shade “Whisper.” It is a beautiful beaming highlighter with pink undertones that blend together with rest of the makeup. It just gives a finishing touch. The product is not too powdery or glittery. I use it on top of my cheekbones, on the bridge of my nose, inner corner of the eye, on top of my lips and a little bit on my eyelids aswell.
To talk about how long these products last once applied to the face… well, I could easily go 14 hours without touch-ups (keep in mind that my skin is normal to combination). On hot days I would probably touch-up my t-zone. So, in general I would give 9 out of 10.
That being said, picking out the right shade online can be tricky. So if you’re not sure and want see & touch & smell everything, I suggest you to visit Tradehouse store. And then order online if you would like to get a discount.
