Review: Alima Pure mineral makeup

20120629_123021

I’m generally a little-to-none makeup person. I stay at home most of the time, and frankly, I don’t have all the time it takes to put on a full face. In recent years I have become a fan of mineral makeup and I am learning the difference between the good-quality stuff and the stuff that’s the same stuff you’ve been buying, just packaged differently and maybe with some “minerals” added.

I was really excited to try out Alima Pure mineral makeup, because it’s made in Portland, Oregon; it’s 100% mineral makeup, and its purpose is not to cover up your face, but to bring out its natural beauty. Before I was sent these products to review, I was asked for my eye color, skin tone and other physical characteristics of my face and skin so they could pick out the perfect color combination for me.

I received a package with colors I first thought might be too bland and not stand out quite enough. But then I remembered the purpose of this makeup is to bring out your natural beauty! I was also nervous to try out the bronzer, since bronzers typically give me a dark or fake-tan look that totally clashes with my ivory skin tone.

Keep in mind that you’ll definitely need a good brush or brush set for this makeup. Alima Pure sells their own, or you can go out and get some quality brushes elsewhere.

It was an extremely simple set: a pearluster eyeshadow, a satin matte blushbronzer, and a nourishing lipbalm.

Let’s see if my concerns were alleviated. Here’s me before:

And here’s the after:

I’ve done no photo editing on any of these pics. The only products I used in addition to the ones given to me were an eyeshadow primer and a mascara. Other than that, it’s Alima Pure.

I love this makeup. I love how light it feels. I love that the bronzer isn’t too much, and that neither are any of the other items. It makes for a great everyday look that’s perfect and is extremely easy to apply.

Alima Pure provided me with product for this review. All opinions are my own unless attributed otherwise.
