Oh, Deer! Fun Makeup Tutorial for Kids

Posted on March 11, 2013 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

Recently, we were contacted by Portland-area photographer Diana Sell with an interesting question. She wanted to do a photo shoot for her son's Kindergarten class as an auction project, and needed a little help with the makeup. Now, normally we aren't fans of kindergarteners wearing makeup, but Diana had found an on-line tutorial on how to do deer makeup. Since her son attends Deer Creek school, it seemed like a natural!  But the tutorial showed all sorts of makeup that didn't seem like the best things to put on the sensitive skin of young children, so Diana reached out for a little advice.

Awards Season: Watch out, Anne Hathaway

Posted on January 25, 2013 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

For movies and television, Awards Season begins sometime in November and wraps up in late February with the Academy Awards.  During this window of time, it seems as if Alima Pure has been getting a little love from press and bloggers, so we thought we would take a quick look back at the awards and mentions that we have received in the latter part of 2012 and early 2013.  With holidays, flash sales and facebook contests, we weren't able to devote as much attention to some of these as we normally would, and so now we'd like to take a moment to show our appreciation for the recognition.  Maybe we haven't won as many awards as Anne Hathaway will this season, but we are still pretty proud of our products!

We had been thrilled to win several Organic Beauty Talk awards in 2011, and for 2012 they changed the format of the awards and gave the awards to brands, rather than for specific product categories.  We were honored to be selected as the Best Natural Mineral Makeup Line, and even more so because the 2012 awards took into account reader's opinions of the products!

In December, we found out that we made the Healthy Holistic Living's Top 100 Green Products for 2012 list.  According to Healthy Holistic Living, Alima Pure is "hands down one of the best all natural, chemical free cosmetics on the market today."

Alima Pure 2012 Well Beauty Blog Awards

Also in December, Well Beauty Blog named our Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows as one of their 2012 Top Picks.  Writer Cori Lorts 

did say that although the Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows are probably her favorite Alima Pure product, she also loves our blush and foundation.

In January, we have been singled out three times.  The Detox Diva picked Alima Pure for the Top 10 Beauty category of her Detox Diva Awards 2012.  She mentioned our Bronzer, Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm as favorites from the line.  Storybook Apothecary chose our Satin Matte Foundation as best Powder Foundation, and our holiday collection Black Tie Gala - Eyes as best Eyeshadow for her "The Best Makeup of 2012" round-up.  And Luckymag.com named us one of The Best Natural Beauty Products, calling out our Satin Matte Foundation and saying, "Many mineral-based products claim to be all-natural, but this one is truly safe on your skin."

What awards show would be complete without a speech?  We would like to thank all of the bloggers, magazines and websites that have taken the time to get to know our products and to introduce them to a larger audience.  But mostly, we want to thank you, the Alima Pure customer, for the inspiration you give us and for making us a part of your life.  We are honored that you chose us.

Introducing Natural Beauty Sets

Posted on December 05, 2012 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

If you have ever wished that there were an easy way to introduce someone that you care about to Alima Pure cosmetics, we have just the thing for you!  We know buying a foundation for a loved one can be a tricky proposition, but who doesn't love to receive a gift of color?  With three of our best-selling shades in three of our customer-favorite products, we think these sets will make it easy to convince your friends and family to ditch the chemical-filled products and join you in appreciating the beauty of natural makeup!

Natural Beauty Warm
The Natural Beauty Warm set includes our popular Satin Matte Blush in Carnation, an earthy pink; Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Chai, a constant best-seller; and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Mango, a warm pink that brings brightness to a wintertime palette.

Natural Beauty Cool
The Natural Beauty Cool set includes best-selling Satin Matte Blush in Antique Rose, a soft red that works for almost everyone; Pearluster Eyeshadow in Taupe, a soft neutral that creates a polished look; and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Fig, a bronzed plum that won't overpower your lips.

Individually, the products in these sets would retail for $39.50, but through the holidays they are value priced at only $30 each.  But best of all, these sets are a perfect to prove to skeptics that natural cosmetics can be gorgeous!
