Why is Liquid Silk Foundation out of stock?

While we love many things about this product, we have decided that we can do even better and that it’s time to update the look and feel. Don’t worry, this isn’t disappearing forever, but it is going into its cocoon for a little bit before reemerging as a butterfly.

Green beauty is still a new frontier and the available options are seemingly always improving. We made the best decisions with what was available to us at the time we first developed this product, but the technology has improved and we are so excited to be able to do better, to have something that even more closely reflects our values as a brand (and as people).

We are a small indie brand with limited resources to accomplish all of our many, many goals. We want to get this to you as soon as possible, and will be working as hard as we can to make that happen. We don’t have a firm date for its return, but we promise to keep you looped in and to not rush the process by making any compromises to the high standards you have come to expect from us.

If you are looking for a new foundation we would be happy to assist you with finding your match in one of our other formulas. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at with any questions, comments or concerns.


Buildable, moisturizing liquid foundation, in a range of 10 flexible shades. Liquid Silk Foundation pairs with our 10 shades of Cream Concealer for easy matching and natural-looking coverage. Together, they enhance your skin without hiding it.

Liquid Silk Foundation gives you fresh, smooth coverage that feels like you’re putting on moisturizer. Coverage is up to you--go for a fresh, natural-skin finish that shows off your freckles and minimizes pores, or set it with Satin Matte Foundation for fuller, matte coverage.

Mixed Feelings

I wanted to love it, but I could only like it - sort of. I love that it's pure and won't damage my skin, but the coverage is negligible. Maybe for young and undamaged skin it would serve well. I need coverage that stays and is not so thin.

Smooth and great coverage

So I use and LOVE Alima Satte Matted powder, but wanted to venture out into using a liquid foundation. I've personally never used liquid foundation in the past and so I wanted to try it out. And since I love this brand, why not try their foundation. I was a little skeptical after reading some reviews, but then I read other reviews that were good. So I decided to try it it was on sale since they're replacing it. I bought during their foundation sale and was able to use that coupon on top of the sale price. SCORE! Anyways, I bought it and so far so good. Goes on super smooth! It's not cakey at all. Feels very light and have good coverage. I was able to match the color using one of Alima's blog posts where it references which colors of Satte powder, concealer and liquid foundation to use together. Wish I could find it again to share that link. Since I know what powder color works for me with their loose powder, I used that reference to match this foundation. Worked out perfectly. Color match is great! I really like it. Thanks again Alima for great make up!!

I absolutely love this foundation!

I have mature, aging skin and everything soaks right in. I have been wearing powder foundation the last few years so makeup doesn’t settle in my lines. I ordered this on a whim since it was on sale and love the way it feels so moisturizing on my skin!

Right color, thick

The warm fair color is great, which is hard to find. It's a little thick, found it works best to buff on with a big brush.
