Welcome to our new "Alima Pure Staff Favorite" series, where staffers pick their one, current favorite product. It is your chance to see what everyone "behind the scenes" chooses to wear, when they have the full line available to them. We started out with Robin, whose current favorite product is our Luminous Shimmer Blush in Garnet.
Robin is pregnant, and maybe partly because of that, or maybe because we haven't had much sun here in Portland up until the last couple of weeks, she loves the brightness of Garnet, and the way it wakes up her complexion. She said, "I like Garnet because it's a bright, refreshing pop of color for paler skin, perfect for when you want a rosy cheek versus a bronzed look." Because she is expecting, Robin especially appreciates that she doesn't need to worry about applying Garnet to her skin. "It seems like pregnant women have to be careful about everything, but I know this doesn't have any dyes or harmful chemicals in it."
We have to admit, we were a little surprised that Robin chose Garnet. After all, it is a bright, vivid shade (one of our top recommendations for deep skin tones), and Robin has relatively fair skin. But once she showed us how great it looks on her, we were sold! Her application tip is to use a fluffy brush, like our #23 Kitten Brush. Several of us immediately added Garnet to our personal wish-lists. To her credit, Robin was surprised at our surprise. She told us, "You shouldn't be afraid of color--try something new!" She's right of course, and embracing a bright shade that we might otherwise overlook is a great way to break free from a color rut!
