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.

Samples are helpful
I’ve been with Alima for many many years and sorta settled on 2 shades depending on the color they come in. Sometimes they are a bit lighter or darker so I mix. I also use samples to correct the difference. Unfortunately I’ve been finding the coverage isn’t as good as it was almost 10 years ago. The cost is getting ridiculous as a sample is now up to $5!! Time to find something else. Itty bitty samples should not cost that plus it was only filled half full. Not good business. I’m getting more disappointed in the last 2 years.
Glad I ordered several!
I've been using Alima Pure for years in Beige 2. I wanted to try other shades to confirm that I'm still using the right one, so I purchased two others. I'm glad I did because I am STILL Beige 2 after 8 years! I love this product. My skin as never looked better when I use it. A little goes a LONG way and I love that you can build up the layers.
Has no staying power.
Loved the color, but it was nonexistent after only 4 hours.
So glad that I could order small samples to get my right shade. Makes it a lot cheaper and easier to find your shade, rather than guessing and paying for a full size!
Great for Sensitive and Acne Prone Skin
I love that the ingredient deck in this makeup is uncomplicated. My skin is easily reactive, very sensitive and can break out easily. The finish is natural and the shade range is impressive. I am combination leaning oily skinned so I would prefer something more mattifying, which is the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5.
