How to Find Your Undertone

Cool: Our Cool range has the broadest range of depth with foundation shades for the fairest skin tones and deepest skin tones. Our Cool shades match well with slightly pink undertones.

Neutral: Our Neutral shades suit those with cool peach undertones. Our Neutral range is slightly more yellow than Cool shades, but still falls on the cooler end of the spectrum when compared to Beige or Warm.

Beige: Beige range works with most neutral peach undertones. It’s slightly warmer than our Neutral range, but not quite as golden-toned as our Warm range. If Olive shades are close, but not quite right, you will find a match with Beige.

Warm: Our Warm shades of Satin Matte Foundation flatter those with a subtle yellow undertones. If you find that foundation shades sometimes appear pink on your skin, our Warm range will be the match for you.

Olive: If you try Neutral shades or Beige shades and find that they aren't quite right, Olive may be the match for you. Our Olive line usually suits those with neutral brown undertones. Please note that Olive shades run deeper than other undertones.

Great product- one wish

Great color match, great coverage, great feel. The one improvement for me would be if it could do more for my oily/shiny skin.

I won't ever use anything else

This foundation has been a game changer for me. I used to wear bareminerals original foundation but I switched to this in favor of the simpler ingredients list and alima beats that in every way. The coverage is very natural and builds really well from light to almost full coverage. I actually prefer using this as my concealer for acne and dark circles instead of alima's actual powder concealer because it works that well. If you're not used to mineral powder then it may take a few tries to figure out the right technique but it's really easy once you get the hang. I have extremely sensitive highly reactive acne prone skin and I can sleep in a face full of this foundation and still have no new acne the next day unlike other makeup I've slept in over the years (don't lie, we've all done it). I work in healthcare and wear masks 12+ hrs a day and the only place it rubs off by the end of the day is my nose where I'm constantly pulling my mask up and down. It doesn't break me out or itch like the BM used to and it costs about the same so it was easy to switch. I wasn't paid or incentivized in any way to tell you all this. I just think people deserve to know when something works exactly or better than it's supposed to. 100% recommend.

This powder foundation is mature skin friendly. It goes on easily and looks polished. I would recommend.

Great Foundation.

Satin Matte foundation gives my face good coverage and does not cause break out.

Great for sensitive skin

Great stuff. Goes on beautifully. It’s a little light for me in the summer but will be perfect for the winter months.
