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.
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."
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.
Holiday shopping can be a challenge. Everyone dreams of giving a gift that will bring tears of joy to the eyes of the receiver; or at least make their list of favorite gifts. Ideas for such wonderful gifts can be a little tricky to come by, so in the spirit of helpfulness, we assembled a few Alima Pure staffers and asked them some holiday gift questions. Perhaps one of their answers will inspire you to give the best gift ever!
