First Time Using Powder Foundation

After reading extensively about the benefits of powder foundations for oily/acne prone skin, I finally decided to try powder foundation. Choose Alima Pure becuase of the natural ingredients. I was VERY pleased with the performance of this foundation. This foundation has light to median coverage and it looks very natural on the skin. It looks even better after settling in on the skin and the natural oils on the skin makes it look more dewy. I do use moisturizer/SPF/primer when using this foundation and it does last all day (with one touch-up in between).

Amazing

This staff is amazing! The best color match I have ever had ( olive 1 , where have you been all my life?), Looks amazing when applying on face oil ( I'm addicted to face oils). I have combination- dry skin with blackheads issues, and can put it only on well moisturized skin . No issues with breakouts and skin looks amazing. I'm hooked

Lovely

Lovely finish, lightweight on the skin, buildable, gives a lovely glow and long lasting. The only thing i struggle with is getting an exact colour match. I have the Warm 4 which is a little too yellow and if i use the Warm 3 , its too light .

Covers blemishes, might also cause them

I’ve used the pressed version of this foundation for years with no issue but the finish was a bit chalky for my taste so I wanted to try the satin matte loose powder. Pros are that it covers spots well and feels fairly weightless. Cons are that it doesn’t play well with freshly moisturized skin, emphasizes peach fuzz, and seems to be the culprit of small new breakouts anytime I use it. I’ve switched to using it as just a small spot concealer rather than a full face foundation. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a win for me.

I love this foundation. There

I love this foundation. There is buildable coverage. It does rub off slightly. I also love that the ingredients are minimal and non-toxic. I have oily skin and this powder foundation mellows that out. My skin undertone is yellow and this suited me well.

this is my favorite foundation! it is so buildable and can be used for light to full coverage so it is very versatile :)

I’ve been using this foundation for years. Light but buildable coverage. Doesn’t make me break out & helps control the oil throughout the day. Highly recommend!!

This is the first mineral foundation I’ve found that doesn’t cause my face to breakout. It is a little darker than I wanted but that was my fault. Hoping once I get some sun it will match my skin tone better.

U

Live I stopped wearing this for a while and really don’t know why I did. It’s so easy to apply and the finish is so beautiful on the skin. Nothing matches me normally and having an olive line helps!

K

I try other products but always come back to Alima for my foundation. It’s just the best for sensitive skin and coverage. Period.

Just great

I’ve been using this foundation for 4+ years now and I absolutely love it! It feels great on my skin and it’s not too heavy. I love that I can control how much coverage I would prefer to wear during the day too. I have sensitive skin that’s prone to blemishes and this is the one foundation that I’m sure doesn’t make me irritated or break out. People are always commenting on how great my skin looks with it on too so definitely would recommend!

The best Foundation ever!

I've been using Alima mineral

I've been using Alima mineral foundation for years (I switch around with another mineral brand that's available in a pressed pan). Although I prefer the simplicity of a pressed powder, Alima contains no silicones, so my skin can breathe. I use a blend of Cool 1, 2, or 3, depending on the time of year. It provides a gorgeous, glowy, natural finish, but I must apply very sparingly or it can get a bit dewy on me. A little goes a long way.

Fell in love

I started out by sampling this product & I immediately fell in love! The packaging is great, allows me use exactly how much I need. Gives a natural look and glow to my skin, it’s like it just melts on my face & evens out my imperfections on my skin. I followed the skin tone guide for my color & it matched perfectly. It’s now my new go to foundation!

Perfect for my sensitive, oily skin

I've been using this foundation for about 2 years now and have no reason to try anything else. I have a lot of allergies, and had always struggled to find something that worked with my very sensitive and oily skin. My skin only looks healthier after using this makeup daily, and my husband, friends and family would make the same testament! The finish looks natural and it's buildable if you want more coverage. I started out using my own brushes, but have found that it looks better when I apply it with their foundation brush for my every-day look, and the flat foundation brush if I want more coverage. Start out with the sampler if you aren't sure what shade you are! (I'm Olive 1 in the winter, and Olive 1.5 in the summer.)
