Walking around downtown Portland over the weekend, there they were–the first cherry blossoms of spring! That makes it the perfect time to introduce our new collection for Spring 2013, the Hanami Collection. Hanami translates to “flower viewing,” but in Japan, it most commonly refers to cherry blossom viewing. Participating in Hanami can be anything from a stroll through a park to an elaborate evening picnic under lighted trees. Although Hanami originated in Japan, cities around the world are creating their own Cherry Blossom or Hanami festivals.
Immerse yourself in some of history and literature’s greatest love stories this Valentine’s Day with the limited edition eyeshadow collection Love Stories. This collection features four full-sized eyeshadows in our all new, pink signature Alima Pure cosmetics bag. The collection is available only for a limited time, and for the value price of $36.
The latest installment of our 3 for $30 Eyeshadow Collections are now available, and they are just right for gift-giving on a budget. Do you have a flower-lover on your list? What about someone who craves coffee? Or someone stricken with the urge to travel the globe? Let your gift of mineral makeup illustrate that you know what is close to their heart!
Flower Bouquet is a collection of three of our floral named shadows. Soft pink, matte Daphne pairs beautifully with the sweet blue-purple tones of Pearluster Viola. Finish the look with the nearly-black Satin Matte Eyeliner in Black Violet. This collection is stunning on both green and brown eyes!
If you have ever wished that there were an easy way to introduce someone that you care about to Alima Pure cosmetics, we have just the thing for you! We know buying a foundation for a loved one can be a tricky proposition, but who doesn’t love to receive a gift of color? With three of our best-selling shades in three of our customer-favorite products, we think these sets will make it easy to convince your friends and family to ditch the chemical-filled products and join you in appreciating the beauty of natural makeup!
Happy Thanksgiving! We know that some of our customers are enjoying a triptophan-induced coma about now, but others of you are chomping at the bit, ready to get your holiday shopping cranked up into high gear. The great news for both camps is that our Black Friday offer begins Thursday evening, and carries through Cyber Monday, November 27. There’s plenty of time to take advantage of this fun offer! With any purchase of $45 or more placed through our website, you will receive a darling mini kabuki brush, and eyeshadow-sized jars of two limited edition Luminous Shimmer Blushes, Lily and Zinnia.
These limited edition shades most closely resemble our Luminous Shimmer Blush in Leigh with regards to the amount of shimmer, they are not quite as shimmery as Guava or Rosa. These blushes are not available for sale, they are exclusive to this gift with purchase. Lily is a soft peach with glints of silver and copper shimmer. Zinnia is an earthy red, sparked with bits of gold and pink. The shadow-sized jars and accompanying mini kabuki brush make these little gems perfect for travel or touch-up.
So if you want to get a little shopping done this weekend, be sure to visit our Collections page…we have eyeshadow sets, face sets and brush sets, and when you place your order totaling $45 (before shipping), you will receive a little something extra that you can slip into a stocking…even if it is your own!

What is your favorite formula of Alima Pure Eyeshadow? Are you partial to the smooth and silky texture of the Satin Matte Eyeshadows? Is the subtle iridescence of the Pearluster Eyeshadows that keep you coming back? Do you yearn for the soft sparkle of the Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadows? Or have you not tried all of the formulas yet? No matter your situation, the new 3 for $30 Eyeshadow collections are the perfect choice for you. Indulge in some best-selling shades from your current Favorite Formula, or stretch yourself and try a can’t-miss combination from a new formula!
The Matte Collection features Dawn, a pale, heathered pink; Cocoa, a soft, medium brown and Java, a deep, rich brown. These lovely Satin Matte shadows are perfect for work or weekends; apply Dawn from crease to lashes, Cocoa on the lid, and Java in the crease and as a liner. Create a more dramatic look by applying Dawn from lashes to brow, contouring the crease with Cocoa and adding Java as a liner, and swirled into the outer corner of the crease.
As summer comes to a close many people find that leaves aren’t the only thing changing color. That slight golden glow that you may have built up with careful sun exposure is probably beginning to fade, leaving you feeling a bit pale. Now you can Extend Your Glow with Alima Pure’s three new Bronzer/Shimmer Powder duos, available for a limited time only. These duos include one matte Bronzer (pick the shade that is right for your skin), and a Luminous Shimmer Powder in a shade selected to work with your Bronzer to warm your complexion and give you a subtle sheen when you so desire.
Maracaibo Bronzer, our bronzer for the fairest of skins, is paired with Nectar Luminous Shimmer Powder. This pairing is perfect for you if your skin tone is similar to that of Nicole Kidman or Carey Mulligan, or in other words, if most bronzers are too dark for you.
What could be more perfect for a fall collection from a makeup company in Portland, Oregon than a collection called “Stormy Weather?” After all, Portland didn’t get its rainy reputation undeservedly. But after a summer of record-breaking temperatures, everyone can look forward to cooler temperatures and a bit of precipitation!
