Alima Pure Staff Favorites

Posted on July 06, 2011 by terresa | 0 Comments

Sara is more than just one of the longest-term Alima Pure employees, you could really call her the Alima Pure muse! Back when Sara was approaching the age when her mom had promised she could begin wearing makeup, mom began to have some concerns about what Sara would be putting on her young, beautiful skin. That's what prompted Kate O'Brien to create Alima Pure!

When we needed a photo for a blog post we did on Alicia Silverstone's blog, The Kind Life, we recruited Sara to model for us. We asked her to pick out her five favorite products to take for the photo shoot, and the results can be seen above. Sara is wearing Satin Matte Foundation in Warm 1, Satin Matte Blush in Pink, Pearluster Eyeshadow in Silk, Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Tigereye and our Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Rhubarb. The result is soft, gorgeous and so easy to apply!

Alima’s Half Moon Brush Has Arrived

Posted on October 20, 2009 by kate | 0 Comments

Alima Pure Half Moon Brush

Alima is tickled to announce our new Half Moon Brush. This adorable little brush has an exquisite feel to it; dense, silky, smooth…it’s truly a pleasure to glide over  your face. Because it’s so soft and gentle, all skin types can use it, even those with sensitive or Rosacea-prone skin. Plus, it fits effortlessly into your purse or handbag.

The Half Moon Brush boasts a uniquely wide, flat design with a small, manageable handle, making it ideal for blending, highlighting or contouring. It quickly, easily, applies a sheer application of bronzers, luminous shimmer powders, finishing powders, primer powders, and is fabulous for blending or touching up mineral foundation.

I’ve found it works beautifully under my eyes and have been using it there, as well, for spot application. Another bonus: the Half Moon Brush’s slender arc of bristles is especially easy to clean and air-dry.

We’re offering our new brush right now at a special introductory price of $20.00 (see details on Alima’s Home Page). You will also receive, for a limited time, a sample of Autumn Glow Luminous Shimmer Powders; perfect to replicate the burnished, late day glow of the season.

We think you’ll be as pleased with the Half Moon Brush as we are and invite you, as always, to share any questions, comments or experiences.

Happy autumn to all of you!

Looking for Alima's #31 Brush?

Posted on February 19, 2009 by kate | 0 Comments

If you're wondering where our #31 (Fine Eyeliner/Concealer) brush is, don't despair, it will be back soon. But in the meantime, we have a few suggestions that might help you survive the wait.

If you were going to use the #31 for eye lining, you might enjoy the #33 Angle Liner brush, which works beautifully, wet or dry.  If you were seeking the #31 for concealer, a good substitute is our #35 Eye Detail Brush.  This handy little brush works much like the #31 for applying concealer to spots and blemishes, and also does a nice job applying a smudgy liner for a smokey eye.  Turn it sideways and you can use it much like the #31 for applying a thinner liner. And like the #31, it can also be used to apply lip color in a pinch!
