Alima Pure’s Yoga Collection

Posted on January 13, 2010 by kate | 4 Comments

Alima Pure Yoga Collection
This time of year, many people give more thought to exercise and stress relief. Yoga is an obvious answer to both of those concerns, providing benefits to body and mind.  To honor the power of yoga, Alima Pure has created our new Yoga Collection to bring calm and balance to your cosmetics bag and morning routine.

These new shades could be called “almost matte” or “semi-shimmery.”  They are a unique blend of matte and shimmer.  In direct light, they look shimmery, on the skin they are matte until you turn your head just so and catch the light. Mesmerizing!

  • Asana is a light peach with a hint of golden shimmer.
  • Namaste is a warm rosy shade touched by bronze shimmer.
  • Mantra is a soft blue-green sparked with gold.
  • Vinyasa is a medium, neutral brown with sparse shimmer.

Although these four shades were created to be eyeshadows, you shouldn’t hesitate to try Namaste, or even Asana, on the cheeks.

Yoga Class Look:

  • Sweep Asana from lashes to brow, blend Vinyasa into the crease.
  • Draw a bit of Mantra along the lash-line
  • Add a touch of Namaste to the center of your lids and the apples of your cheeks.
  • Finish with Acai Lip Balm.

You’ll look polished, but not as if you were too concerned with your appearance!

There must be a rainbow somewhere outside right now--it's raining, but the sun is glaringly bright off of the wet pavement. We're easing into the Portland rainy season. As the seasons change, maybe it's time to change up your eyeshadow routine just a bit--add a little drama to go with the sweaters and scarves.

La Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Collection

Posted on January 19, 2009 by kate | 3 Comments

Alima Pure La Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Collection Valentine’s Day is definitely all about living “the sweet life.”  With that in mind, Alima Pure has created La Dolce Vita - four seasonal eyeshadow colors to bring a little extra sweetness to your look, all without one extra calorie or fat gram.

Cupcake is a sweet, shimmery pink, as light and frothy as it’s namesake.
Petit Four is a sparkling beige with sparks of gold, as irresistible as the little cakes of the same name.
Tiramisu is a much-loved shade making a return appearance.  If you were lucky enough to receive last year’s “Alima Signature Colors” stack of three shades, you have seen Tiramisu before.  A shimmery, light-to-medium brown, Tiramisu will surely be a go-to color for many.
Mousse is named for dark chocolate mousse; deep enough to satisfy but not so heavy as to overwhelm.  Our Mousse features a lovely golden shimmer.
As an added bonus, you will receive a deluxe sample of Meringue, a sparkling white.

La Dolce Vita “Sweet” look

Apply Cupcake from lashes to brow.  Sweep Tiramisu into the crease, blending well. Apply Petit Four under lower lashes, from the outer corner and stopping about 2/3 of the way in.  With a damp brush, line the upper lid with Mousse.
Use a matte pink blush like Pink or Raspberry on the apples of the cheek and apply a tiny bit of Cupcake shadow on the tops of cheekbones.
Finish with a pink balm like Acai or Rhubarb.

La Dolce Vita “Sultry” look

Apply Meringue from crease to brow, and Petit Four from lashes to crease.  Use Mousse as a liner on top and bottom lashes, smudging well.  Place Tiramisu directly above Mousse on the upper lid, blending it upwards toward the crease.  Add a bit of Mousse to the outer corner and crease, blending well.
Apply a soft, earthy blush like Carnation to apples of cheeks and blend back towards ear.
Use a deeper lip balm like Cranberry, and apply liberally, then gently blot to leave a soft stain.

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!

[caption id="attachment_433" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Alima display"][/caption]

Le Bon Marché, in Paris, is considered by many aficionados to be the most exclusive department store in the world.  The store is stunningly gorgeous, and they carry some of the loveliest merchandise you can find anywhere.  And now, it's even a little more beautiful, at least in our humble opinion.  Alima Pure is available at Le Bon Marché!  We stopped in on our recent trip, and were delighted to see our lovely little jars in such a sophisticated setting.

You'll find the Alima Pure corner in the natural cosmetics department. So on your next trip to Paris, between fabulous meals and sightseeing, stop by Le Bon Marché and get yourself a little something that you know you'll use!
