Valentine Special

Posted on February 05, 2009 by kate | 1 Comment

Alima Pure Valentine Send a Friend a Free Alima Valentine!

Looking to pass a little love along to your best friend, sister or co-worker this Valentine’s Day?  We have the perfect plan and we’re tickled pink – send a collection of special Alima Pure samples to a friend (for free)! For the next week when you place your order, just leave a note in the comments box with your friend's name and address. We'll send her three free samples of Alima colors chosen just for the occasion, along with a gorgeous card wishing her a Happy Valentine's Day. If you like, let us know whether she'd prefer our light collection, or deep collection (both are quite wearable, so you can't go wrong).

In addition, with your order of $25 or more (before shipping and after discounts), we're offering a free mini (eyeshadow sized) 'Sweetheart'  limited edition blush - a  soft medium pink with a hint of shimmer. We'll include it automatically when we pack your box, so don’t worry when it doesn’t show up on your order form.

Offers end at midnight PST, on February 12th, while supplies last.

Happy Valentine's Day from Alima Pure!

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.

Some days it's all about being lucky.

Posted on January 19, 2009 by kate | 6 Comments

Lucky clover Do you ever have one of those days when you just feel lucky?  Like maybe you should buy a lottery ticket lucky?  Lucky you!  It's great to feel lucky, even if you don't end up winning the lottery. We feel lucky when our skin is behaving nicely and our Satin Matte Foundation goes on like silk; when the eyeshadow colors we selected blend like a work of art.  We feel lucky when we are filling orders from our wonderful customers, and reading all the delightful emails you send us.  

Of course, there are those days that don't feel so lucky.  Gravity seems to be working extra well, and you drop everything you touch.  There are days that the calendar tells us should be unlucky. We try to not be superstitious, but some days can just feel jinxed.

We aren't making any specific promises, but we think there might be something to help you alleviate the fear of those predicted "unlucky" days.  Carry your lucky coin, wear your lucky blouse, but also take a few moments to read our blog on days that seem as they might otherwise be troublesome. Perhaps you'll find some information that will make you feel more lucky! Lucky you!
