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.

At first glance this color seems too dark for me, however, when I put it on and blend it works well with my skin.

Nice Matt Coverage

I use it almost every day just a tiny amount is enough to cover any imperfections. Doesn’t clog my pores and feels light. Could be layered for better coverage.

Great natural-looking finish

I really like this foundation because it is natural looking. I would say that the coverage is relatively sheer, and you can build it up. What I really like about this line is that it comes in shades suitable for light-olive complexions, which is rare. I am a very pale olive and got the shade Olive 0. I am able to use cream blushes over the top; they are a little more difficult to blend than when used over liquid foundation, but the result is still good. I am in my late forties and find that this product is very suitable for more mature skin.

Great foundation

Love this foundation, it provides beautiful natural coverage without feeling heavy on the skin. Used with a good primer, it is very long lasting.My skin has improved in appearance too, I no longer have so much trouble areas as I did with a liquid foundation. Highly recommend.

One of my favorite foundations!

I’ve gone through a few of the satin matte foundation jars now and have been using them for a long time and still just love it! It’s so quick and easy to apply and gives amazing coverage with a healthy skin like glow. I was so surprised that a powder could make my skin stills look like skin but with medium to full coverage. Definitely one of my favorite foundations and will always have on hand.

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.

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!

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.)

Loving this product so far!

Loving this product so far! I haven't had the chance to wear it for long, active days yet due to COVID19, however the times I have worn it I've been very pleased. Good application with short stiff kabuki style brush, long wearing on my combination skin, and doesn't have any aroma!The color matching guide worked well for my complexion. Purchased it based off their guide and it worked out great! Not too warm or cool! Its slightly darker than my skin right now but going into summer it's perfect!I'm generally a jane iredale user and this is competing very well with much cleaner ingredients in my opinion.

Amazing Clean Foundation

This was one of the first clean foundations I ever used years ago. It’s great and I always still have a jar on my vanity. This is the only makeup clean or not that has an extensive olive undertone line that fits my skin perfectly. I am an Olive 2 unless I get very tan in the summer I may use 3. Normally olive undertone makeup is much too dark, but I love that Alima Pure makes medium and lighter shades. This foundation covers imperfections and evens out skin tone without looking fake. It has a very natural satin finish that perfects the skin without being detectable. It’s great to throw on with a fluffy brush when I’m in a hurry in the morning but still want a bit of coverage. I absolutely love it and always go back to it.

Ruined my skin

I initially bought this and loved it so of course when there was a saw I ordered two more. Now I’ve been working everyday because of the holidays and out of town. I never got a chance to return the two satin foundations I never used and now I’m going to have to eat the money. I broke out into the worst I have in a long time. This foundation clogged all of my once smooth skin. I broke out in cysts. Three actually. My skin is now flushed looking and I’m just so sad. Maybe these ingredients are coated or just bad quality. I thought I found the perfect clean foundation with the perfect shade. It’s been a horror show with my skin recovering. I pin pointed this product because nothing else has changed and seemed to improve once I stopped using it.Just really upset about this experience and now I’m just going to have to throw away two unused foundations
