Hi— I am very interested in securing your products for my teenaged daughter, but am not having success in finding a stockist in the UK. In researching makeup, I came across a conversation thread that was made up of make up artists here in the UK. One of them said that they stock you— so I feel like I could buy your makeup somewhere here in person, rather than ordering on line. Are you able to give me any information? (Just fyi, I read about you in Gillian Deacon’s book There’s Lead in Your Lipstick— she highly recommends your products). Many thanks- Jennifer

Hello Jennifer, Unfortunately, we do not yet have any stores in the UK, although we hope to before very long! In the meantime though, you can order through our website. We have a foundation selector tool to help you narrow down your selection, or you can write to makeupartist@alimapure.com and they can help you make some great choices for your daughter. Thank you for your kind words!

Well I’m pretty dissapointed. I am just ready to order some of what I hope is a great product and now find I can no longer order from your website as I am in the EU. Firstly your link to femshop does not work! I googled them and found them, but today when I looked at the site it seemed to be down. You say that they will be able to sell to me by e-mail but at the rate they seem to reply I think it will be while before I can confirm prices etc… and order. I fear you will loose a lot of your European customers this way! Is there anyway you would be able to accept an order from the UK whilst their site is down?
Thanks
Helen

Hi Helen, alas, Femishop has had to contend with hackers over the weekend. They are back up and running now, and would love to assist you. Apologies for the inconvenient wait!

I visited the Femishop site and it seems to have been hacked. I really hope you’ll continue to serve the European and Scandinavian customers from your online shop, as I’m only about to order samples and am already in love with your product!

I’m from Germany like Stefanie and had just ordered samples of foundation, blush and eye shadow when you announced you will no longer ship to Europe. Although I ordered the wrong foundation colours (definitely my mistake) I was pleased with the quality of your products. As I live in a rural area I tried to locate an online retailer here in Germany- I only found one and the foundation is 24 € (= 36 USD). The price is a matter but not such an important one that I wouldn’ buy the products. However the online retailer doesn’t offer samples of the individual colours- just a set of 5 baggie samples for “light”, “medium” and “dark” complexions including 3 foundation, a blush and an eyeshadow sample so you don’t know what you will get. That didn’t help me, so I contacted femishop. I asked if there were samples available they told me they were available in late January. I further asked when their webshop would be fully functional and they told me that would be in April(!)2010.
I believed that my quest for the right products would finally come to an end when I discovered alima pure- but obviously this shouldn’t happen. I still receive your newsletter, so I was especially sad when I saw the Christmas offers and goodies I will not be able to buy.

Dear Kate,
I just wanted to let you know that I got another e-mail from Femishop and this time they were really helpful. I hope their webshop will open sooner than April. Many thanks for caring about my concerns,

Hi Stefanie, we do have retailers in Germany, so our products are more readily available for you. Have you had success in locating them? Can we assist you? I’m sorry for the inconvenience! Warmly, Kate

Yes we have retailers here but the foundation is about 15 dollars more. And I will not buy it for this expensive price anymore I am sorry.

Dear Kate,
I received your email yesterday and I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m so very happy you have decided to solve the problem for us Scandinavians this way. I hope Femishop will get their webshop going in 2010, but until then I must say I’ll be VERY happy to continue to shop directly from you. Thank you so much Kate for listening and taking measures! You’ve never let us down before and once again you have proved what an extraordinary company leader you are. I feel so happy to be one of your customers. Thank you so much!

Dear Kate,
Lovely to hear from you, thank you for your reply. I’ll be looking out for your email. I really hope this will work out, as I would be very sad to have to start looking for another brand when I’ve been so pleased with Alima. I do hope we’ll be able to buy the specials as well. They’re always very tempting and make such beautiful gifts!

I’ve contacted Femishop for prices and shipping costs and have not had any response to my emails. I only got that one same automated tell-us-what-you-need-message everyone else seems to be getting. I wrote them back with a further inquiry but they won’t bother to answer. Maybe you should’ve delayed the transition until Femishop was fully prepared for it?

No prices to be seen….What a shame, always enjoyed the product, seems i have to look for a company that does ship to europe….

(as most europeans now, that is always the most liable way, since the same products in the states are ALWAYS cheaper than overhere…. :( )

Oh, what sad news this is!
I’ve been a customer for a few years now, and I love Alima’s products, the outstanding customer service, the beautiful packages, everything. Now this is all going to change. I guess there are various reasons for this decision, but for me personally as a client, it takes away a lot from what I love about Alima. I’ve accepted having to wait for packages at least 2 weeks and having to pay an extra 30% in customs fees every time. It was worth it. With this new way of doing things I feel the whole shopping experience will be lost, besides the fact that prices obviously will increase tremendously. You see, the shopping experience is part of the fun! Browsing your pretty web site, looking at special offers… No more of that. And since I live in Sweden and there’s no retailer here, I’m left with only the Femishop option.
I wrote to Femishop to get a price list. Their reply was that I should tell them what I want to buy, and they will get back to me with the sum. (They replied very politely, I might add.) Well, that doesn’t do it for me. I wrote back and asked them TWICE for the price of the foundations. No reply, and this was two days ago.
I’m sure they will do their best, but I feel pushed aside as a customer. I’m very, very happy that I bought my friend’s stash of unopened Alima products (she has quit minerals altogether and had 8-9 jars of foundations, samples of eyeshadows, brushes etc that she wanted to get rid of). Those products will last me for quite a while, but once I’m out I will most likely start to look for mineral makeup elsewhere, which grieves me tremendously since I feel it’s been forced upon me.
Please dear Kate, won’t you reconsider???

Hi Jaana. Alima Pure will be available through Femishop – please do drop them a line to let them know of your interest. They will let you know how to order. We’re here for you if you need additional support, but we are expecting that Femishop will be able to assist you. Thanks so much for your interest!

Why don’t you ship to Germany and Europe anymore? I do not like Femishop and I think to stop buying Alima now.

Will there be a web shop coming some time in the future? As for now, it is not possible to order online from Femishop.
