I was super excited when I received some press samples of the new Delicious Summer Collection from Alima Pure the other day for review.
This collection seems to be a bit more simple than other collections, but, somehow, it’s my favorite one yet because of the lovely colors included in it!
Included in this Collection:
- Milkshake Eyeshadow is almost-matte, but the creamy beige is punctuated with scattered silver sparkles.
- Coffee Frappé Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow is a medium golden brown, loaded with golden shimmer.
- Strawberry Lemonade Luminous Shimmer Blush is a peachy-pink with a whisper of shimmer.
Swatches of the Collection:
From Top to Bottom: Coffee Frappé, Milkshake, & Strawberry Lemonade.
What I really love about this collection is that all the colors are very natural looking and I think they would be super flattering on any skin tone or type. They’re very soft pigments and the 2 neutral eye shadows – Milkshake and Coffee Frappé are both very natural looking, yet the colors have a lot of dimension to them so, together, they actually give eyes a lot of depth and shape. The colors look great during the day or at night as well and you can easily keep the colors very natural during the day and then layer some of the Coffee Frappé shadow a bit heavier for a more smokey night makeup look.
The peachy pink blush, Strawberry Lemonade, looks very glowy and soft, but not glittery. I’m not a fan of too much glitter or overdone sparkle. In the swatches, the blush looks more matte than it actually is on the skin. On the skin, it looks more glowy and soft as opposed to matte, even though the color isn’t super shimmery. Alima Pure have a way of doing just that right amount of shimmer in their blushes to create the perfect look that everyone wants in a blush. It doesn’t look overwhelming or plastered on – it just gives a natural flush to the cheeks which is quite lovely.
I was going to post an Instagram photo on here of me wearing all these in a makeup look, but I can’t get it off instagram for some reason so, if you want to see that look, check out my Instagram page – here.
Overall, this collection is really beautiful for Summer, especially if you want that very natural, subtle glow makeup look. It’s great for those who like the “no makeup” makeup look or anyone who enjoys glowing skin, neutral eyes, and colors that will suit anyone really well.
