Some days it's all about being lucky.

Posted on January 19, 2009 by kate | 6 Comments

Lucky clover Do you ever have one of those days when you just feel lucky?  Like maybe you should buy a lottery ticket lucky?  Lucky you!  It's great to feel lucky, even if you don't end up winning the lottery. We feel lucky when our skin is behaving nicely and our Satin Matte Foundation goes on like silk; when the eyeshadow colors we selected blend like a work of art.  We feel lucky when we are filling orders from our wonderful customers, and reading all the delightful emails you send us.  

Of course, there are those days that don't feel so lucky.  Gravity seems to be working extra well, and you drop everything you touch.  There are days that the calendar tells us should be unlucky. We try to not be superstitious, but some days can just feel jinxed.

We aren't making any specific promises, but we think there might be something to help you alleviate the fear of those predicted "unlucky" days.  Carry your lucky coin, wear your lucky blouse, but also take a few moments to read our blog on days that seem as they might otherwise be troublesome. Perhaps you'll find some information that will make you feel more lucky! Lucky you!

Snow at Alima Pure

If you are at all familiar with Portland, Oregon, you know we are rather infamous for our rain.  We do get some snow during the winter, but most years it is only what you would call a “skiff,” and sometimes up to an inch or so.  Because we don’t get much, the city usually pretty much shuts down when this happens. This time you might say that we had a substantial amount of snow. We had snow for the better part of two weeks, and it took a toll on the ability of some of us to get to work.  Combined with the holidays, this mean that some orders have taken longer than usual to get out, and we apologize.  As of December 30 are caught up, but if you are waiting for an order that you think should have arrived by now, be assured it will be there soon!

Happy Holidays from Alima Pure to you!

Posted on November 30, 2008 by terresa | 3 Comments

We may be biased, but we think Alima Pure has the absolute best customers in the world!  (And you come to us from all around the world!)  We want to thank you this holiday season with a little present or two.

First, every order placed between November 27th and December 25th will receive a lovely little holiday "Kiss Stick," in a beautiful soft red shade that looks good on everyone.  Although it isn't nearly as bright as one, we've named this pretty little shade "Holly Berry" in honor of the season.  This Kiss Stick isn't the same formula as the ones we featured last holiday season, but instead a glossier version of our regular lip balms. We would love to hear how you feel about the formula when you try it!

Second, every order over $50 (before shipping and after any discounts) between now and December 25 will receive a "Best of 2008" set of samples.  This package includes deluxe samples of nine of the most popular eye shadows from our special collections released in 2008.  The samples come in our cute little bird-topped sample jars, but are generously filled to last you much longer than a regular sample.

The shades in this set are

  • Bondi, a light, shimmering sand
  • Cosmo, a bright sparkling purple
  • Merino, a shimmering light blue laced with gold
  • Daiquiri, an earthy pink with more subtle shimmer
  • Aphrodite, a shimmering medium brown
  • Aroa, a vivid, sparkling gold
  • Antique Gold, a tarnished sparkly gold
  • Thames, a shimmering dark silver
  • Pashmina, a black with gold sparkles that makes a beautiful liner.

 

Thank you for a wonderful 2008, here's to a beautiful 2009!

Alima Pure Retractable Brush

Introducing Alima Pure's newest addition...(drumroll)...our retractable foundation brush!  It took a while for the manufacturer to get this just the way we wanted it, but we think it was well worth the wait.  This beautiful brush is Alima-bronze on the outside, with black, super-soft, man-made bristles inside and our adorable bird on the end.  Tuck it into a purse or travel bag so that you can take your foundation brush with you without a mess. Pre-load it with foundation before you go for an instant touch-up.  What we love about it (besides the obvious) is that you can control the bristles to make the brush good for more than just foundation application.  If you slip the metal collar all the way down, you have a full brush, perfect for a sheer application of foundation, but also nice for Satin Finishing Powder, Luminous Shimmer Powder, or even Blush or Bronzer.  If you only pull the collar half the way down, you have tighter bristles, for a slightly heavier foundation application (without the clouds of powder a loosely bristled brush can create), and more control around the contours of the face.  Priced the same as our regular #25 Foundation Brush, this gorgeous little side-kick comes to you with an extra surprise this month.

Fête: a lavish party or celebration.  Alima Pure Fête:  a gleaming all-over shimmer powder perfect for everything from lavish parties to intimate celebrations.  With your purchase of our new Retractable Brush, you will receive a 10 gram jar of our Limited Edition Shimmer Powder in Fête, a soft coppery shimmer with just enough gleam to make you glow.  Wear it on your cheekbones or on your shoulders, but be sure to put it on and celebrate! Offer good through December 25th.
