The #23 Kitten Brush is the ultimate multitasker—especially for spring and summer as we introduce more shimmers and stronger shades into our routine. The bristles swoop up just enough powder to achieve a perfectly even and subtle application with the option to build. It’s also entirely foolproof, which is always a big bonus! Here are some of our favorite products to pair with the Kitten Brush.
All of our blushes pair well with the #23 Kitten Brush, but we particularly love this sweet shade of pink on Felicity Jones, which can be achieved by applying Leigh Luminous Shimmer Blush right onto the apples of the cheeks. The Kitten Brush provides a softness that looks effortless and healthy.
Using the Kitten Brush with Bronzer gives you the control to apply a soft or more defined sun-kissed look as you build. By sweeping Belize Bronzer up the cheekbone to the temples, you can add warmth to the skin just as Gwyneth Paltrow so gracefully achieved at the Michael Kors Golden Heart Gala.
Dolce Luminous Shimmer Powder can be used as a golden highlight along the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupids bow, and décolleté. The Kitten Brush helps guide you so that won’t overdo the shimmer but gorgeously glow just as Jessica Alba does here.
For one more day, the #23 Kitten Brush is on sale for $20 (regularly $27) when entering the code ‘MEOWMEOW ’ at checkout. Lucky you!

When there are more than two partly sunny days in a row, spring is coming to Portland! That doesn’t mean we won’t have more rain and hail showers between now and the real arrival of spring, we’re used to the intermitent quality of spring here in Oregon. But with those first glimpses of blue sky comes the urge to change up the beauty routine. We asked some Alima Pure staff what are their favorite products for springtime? A couple of trends emerged–it seems we are gravitating towards a bronzed eye and a bit more shimmer. But the biggest trend of all, a POP of brighter color somewhere on the face leaves no question, spring is definitely in the air! Continue reading →

The final installment in our skincare series is the “everything else” category. From serums and eye creams to body lotion and assorted products you may have laying around that can be used for skincare, this post will give you a few more of the Alima Pure staff favorites.
Hannah (normal to sensitive skin; prefers vegan, cruelty free and organic products) uses different eye creams for day and night. ”For day, I like John Masters Organics Firming Eye Gel. It works well under makeup. I also like Suki Eye Repair Balm, but this is a heavier formula that I only use at night or in the winter when I have lots of dryness. I’ve found it is too heavy to wear under makeup.” Continue reading →
Holiday shopping can be a challenge. Everyone dreams of giving a gift that will bring tears of joy to the eyes of the receiver; or at least make their list of favorite gifts. Ideas for such wonderful gifts can be a little tricky to come by, so in the spirit of helpfulness, we assembled a few Alima Pure staffers and asked them some holiday gift questions. Perhaps one of their answers will inspire you to give the best gift ever!

Candice: A watch.
Brian: Tickets to watch the (University of Oregon) Ducks in the Fiesta Bowl, new jeans and a Macy’s Gift Card.

Amanda: Winning lottery ticket! Continue reading →
