The final step of celebrating our website's makeover is to do the sort of giveaway that our Facebook fans requested. It's a shopping spree! Enter our giveaway below, and you could be the lucky winner of $100 to spend on at alimapure.com. Wondering what you'd spend it on? We asked a few staffers what they would recommend, and their helpful suggestions follow. They will give you an idea of the different approaches you could take!
Urmila went the route of getting a full face, and she was also closest to spending $100, with a total of $99.50! She would choose her foundation (Beige 4), a blush (her current favorite is Satin Matte Blush in Ginger), a #25 Foundation Brush, a Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow like Leone to give her some sparkle for special occasions, and a #33 Angle Liner Brush to use for liner and brows.
Robin would invest a little more heavily in brushes, selecting both the #23 Kitten Brush and the #25 Foundation Brush. She would then get her Satin Matte Foundation (Olive 1) and then welcome summer with a Mauna Loa Bronzer, for a total of $98. But Robin would spend that last $2 and even a little extra, to get a couple of samples of Satin Matte and Luminous Shimmer Blushes.
Dea took a slightly different approach. She selected her Neutral 3.5 Satin Matte Foundation, Leigh Luminous Shimmer Blush, Satin Finishing Powder in Keiko, Pearluster Eyeshadow in Champagne, Satin Matte Eyeshadow in Cocoa and Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Sweet Pea, giving her a complete face, but no brushes, for only $97!
Mary and Terresa both went over their limits, but planned carefully so that they would maximize their dollars. Mary selected the Irresistible Brush Set, which gets her four of our most popular brushes (#25, #17, #35 and #39) for only $55. Then she would get a new Bronzer in Mauna Loa and the Bold! For Green Eyes kit (part of the 3 for $30 promotion), giving her a grand total of only $105.
But just a reminder, you don't have to be female to win this contest. As some of us were putting together our $100 shopping lists, Brian chimed in. What would he do if he won a $100 Alima Pure shopping spree? "I'd give it to my mom!"
And if you aren't the lucky winner of the $100 shopping spree, don't despair. We're also giving away ten Limited Edition eyeshadows from our past collection "vault."

In observance of Earth Day, Alima Pure is offering one of our favorite products as a gift with purchase this week! At our office, we try to be as environmentally thoughtful as possible. We recycle; we have office flatware, cups and plates; we tote reusable water bottles; and we try to eliminate as much waste as possible.
One of the easiest changes for some of us has been switching to reusable shopping bags. For the "big" grocery trip, this is usually a no-brainer; you just have to remember to take your bags into the store from the car. Once you are in the habit, having reusable bags on hand is pretty easy. The impromptu trips, however, were finding us in need of a bag! You know the situations: you need a head of lettuce and a dozen eggs on the way home from work, or you slip into the drugstore to stock up on a few essentials. We usually don't even think about needing a bag until the store associate begins bagging our products into a wasteful plastic bag. (Or a paper bag if you are inside the city limits of Portland or a growing number of other cities!)
Our solution to this little issue is having a handy tote that fits inside a small pouch right inside our handbags. This way, as soon as the clerk begins to put our items into plastic, we can say, "Oh wait! I have my own bag!" Having a bag as bright and adorable as the one pictured here is an added bonus, and it just so happens to be our Earth Day gift with purchase, offered this week only.
Baggu makes some of our favorite bags; we love them because they are roomy and strong, and come in a wide variety of fun colors and prints. We enjoy them so much, we had some made just for our customers! With any order totaling $75 or more (placed now until Monday, April 23 at 2 pm PST) you will receive a bright green Alima Pure Baggu bag, while supplies last. And, if you're curious about just how much a Baggu bag can hold, follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter this week!
