Alima Pure was founded 16 years ago not by amakeup artist or a beauty industry insider, but instead by a mother and a kindergarten teacher, who wanted pure makeup that would enhance what you love most about yourself without hiding who you are. Makeup that would create maximum impact with minimal ingredients. 

And inspired by that, Alima Pure's cosmetics are luxurious, high-performance and made using pure, clean ingredients. Not just pure andclean, but the highest quality and purest mineral pigments, being among only a few American companies who've earned the highly prestigious BDIH "Certified Natural Cosmetics" seal of approval. This honour means that they use the best minerals and are also a company that is socially and environmentally responsible in their manufacturing. 

Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dimenthicone, petroleum, talc, bismuth oxychloride and nanoparticles. Aka there are no additives, fillers or fragrances that can irritate your skin or clog your pores, being perfect for those with sensitive skin. And on top of that, they're never tested on animals ofc! Oh, and their refillable compacts can be easily swapped out with new ones when a product runs outπŸ‘Œ

Alima Pure's full collection of makeup includes their fan favorite Satin Matte foundation, plus a variety of long-lasting shades for eyes, cheeks and lips. Being a first-time user of their cosmetics, I decided to start by trying out their 3 top selling and most loved products, cause they have to be everyone's favorites for a reason, right?!πŸ˜‰ The three products I tested were the Satin Matte foundation, the Satin Matte mineral blush and the Satin finishing powder.

Before getting into details on all these products, I wanted to just point out the fact that I haven't really been the biggest fan of mineral cosmetics so far - they've always either been too dry on my skin, leave an uneven finish, not giving enough coverage or running loose very quickly, especially when wearing during a sunny summer day. So, to be honest with you, I was a bid sceptic on if I would like Alima Pure and more importantly, if I would actually start using these products later on tooπŸ™ˆ But! I kid you not when I say I was VERY impressed by these products already when putting them on my face for the first time and even more after the first wore when my makeup stayed put & pretty for the whole 11 hours I wore it on a hot and sunny day. Just wow!πŸ˜πŸ’―

Satin Matte Foundation - 

This is Alima Pure's most famous award-winning loose mineral foundation that provides buildable coverage in 45 different shades. It is created from four hypoallergenic ingredients, enhancing your complexion while evening your skin tone. 

I picked myself a shade 'Beige 3' from their vast variety of shades in Satin Matte foundation cause my skin is with a warmer beige undertone and quite tanned at the moment being. This color works perfectly with my skin tone and the coverage is absolutely amazing and by far my favorite product from the three I tested. So beautiful, long-lasting and all in all a wonderful mineral foundation that I'm totally in love withπŸ™Œ

Satin Matte Loose Mineral Blush - 

Pure, luscious and richly pigmented, the Satin Matte Loose mineral blush comes in a range of shades to define and accentuate your cheeks with a natural healthy wash of color. 

I ordered myself a a blush with a color called 'Mimosa' which is a rosy peach that flatters skins with beige undertone and looks like a fresh light pink natural glow on my skin but at the same time is very well pigmented so I don't need to use a lot of it to get some color on my cheeks.🌸

Satin Finishing Powder -

Perfect for all skin types, this translucent loose mineral powder has a sheer finish, is weightless and imparts a subtle soft-focused, airbrushed-like finish to your skin. It can be layered over foundation as a setting powder or work on its own - your skin will look and feel amazing!

My shade of choice for the Satin Finishing powder was called 'Hanae' which is meant for light to medium skin tones and gives a subtle healthy glow for my skin which I absolutely don't mindπŸ™
