December may just be the most difficult month to take care of yourself. Because we know most of our customers are spending the month thinking of (and doing things for) others, we want to give you a little treat. We have created a beautiful, limited edition shade of our popular Organic Nourishing Lipbalm...Quince! Now you may be wondering, "why did they make a yellow lip balm?" But Quince is not the color of the quince fruit, but the Quince flower. A delicious, bright red, with a slight hint of sparkle, Quince is brighter than Holly Berry and more red than Sweet Pea.
Happy Thanksgiving! We know that some of our customers are enjoying a triptophan-induced coma about now, but others of you are chomping at the bit, ready to get your holiday shopping cranked up into high gear. The great news for both camps is that our Black Friday offer begins Thursday evening, and carries through Cyber Monday, November 27. There's plenty of time to take advantage of this fun offer! With any purchase of $45 or more placed through our website, you will receive a darling mini kabuki brush, and eyeshadow-sized jars of two limited edition Luminous Shimmer Blushes, Lily and Zinnia.
The randomly selected grand prize winner of the $100 Alima Pure voucher is: Rebecca F.
The ten (10) randomly selected runner-up winners, set to receive one of our Limited Edition Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows, are: Agne M., Nikki M., Rebecca R., Rose, Padmini P., Kyla H., Sommer P., Uliya F., Jessica H. and Kate C.

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!
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Celebrate by giving the special women in your life a bouquet of fresh spring colors, inspired by an old-fashioned garden. Sisters, dear friends, mothers and daughters will all love the on-trend pastels in our Vintage Bouquet collection!
Even better, three lucky readers will win the new collection plus a fantastic #39 brush with which to apply it! Simply tell us which Alima Pure eyeliner and/or lip balm shade you would choose to complete the look. (See complete rules below.)
Foxglove is a bright lilac shimmer, a beautiful choice for eyes of any hue.
Forget-Me-Not is a lively blue, sparked with gold; a sunny day in a jar.
Snapdragon is a medium shade of peach in a matte blush, ideal to bring a hint of warmth to any complexion.
These four shades come packaged in our elegant white gift box, ready for giving. The set is priced at only $40 (a $57.50 value) and contains three full-sized eye shadows and a full-sized blush.
The simplest way to wear this collection is to choose either Foxglove or Forget-Me-Not. Brush Honeysuckle over the entire lid from lashes to brow, then use the bright shade you have chosen on the lid and slightly into the crease. Line with the liner of your choice. Apply Snapdragon to the apples of the cheeks and blend back towards your hairline. Complete the look with your favorite Organic Nourishing Lip Balm.
If you are feeling more adventurous, use all three shadows at once. Apply Honeysuckle from your crease to your brow. Apply Foxglove on the inner 2/3 of your lid, then put Forget-Me-Not on the outer 1/3 and into the crease. Blend well so that you don’t have any harsh lines. Line with your favorite Alima Pure eye liner and apply Snapdragon to the apples of your cheeks. Finish with the Organic Nourishing Lip Balm of your choice.
To enter the giveaway, simply follow the instructions below. We'll give away three (3) Vintage Bouquet collections, and include brush #39 for each winner. The giveaway begins Monday, April 16, 2012 12:01am EST and ends on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 12:01am EST. Three lucky winners will be announced on Friday, April 20, 2012. Good luck!
