Makeup Artist's Favorite - Gazelle

Posted on September 13, 2011 by terresa | 1 Comment

I recently used up an entire Alima Pure eyeshadow. If you own any of our shadows, you know that this is not all that easy to do! The shadows last a long time, to say the least. But Gazelle Luminous Shimmer Shadow has overtaken all other shadows as my "go-to."  When you wear an eyeshadow daily, it does eventually run out!

What is it about Gazelle that makes it so perfect? Well, for me at least, everything! The shade, a soft beige that is not too far from my natural skin tone (Beige 2). But what makes it really special is the shimmer. It's not sparkly like some of the other Luminous Shimmer Shadows, but it is not pearly like a Pearluster. It is just the right amount of shimmer to brighten up my eye area without looking inappropriate for my age.

If your skin is more of a neutral or cool, and maybe slightly deeper, Chai Luminous Shimmer Shadow may end up being the "go-to" shade for you.  I just used it on a Neutral 5 today, and the effect was similar to Gazelle on my skin, and it was beautiful!  If you have darker skin, Palomino Luminous Shimmer Shadow would fit the bill for you.

And here's a little good news, if you happen to be looking for an entire set that is perfect for every day, our Simply Perfect Collection is available on the website for a limited time only.  It contains my favorite Gazelle, but also Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Tigereye and Satin Matte Blush in Pink.  It is a great set for daily wear or as a gift to introduce someone to the wonders of Alima Pure mineral cosmetics!

Sounds beautiful, and using up an eyeshadow is certainly a testament to that. What if you’re Cool 2? I am curious if either Fleur or Dawn would be a MLLB (my lids but better) shade. I don’t think they contain any shimmer, though.
