Talk About It - Alima Pure "Let Them Eat Cake" Collection

I really adore Alima Pure and their wonderful mineral makeup and I'm head over heels for their newest limited edition collection entitled Let Them Eat Cake. This collection is comprised of four incredibly unique and wearable shades based on sweet treats we all love to eat. I'm more of a salty girl but I do like to indulge myself in sweets sometimes, especially those designed to enliven the eyes and add a touch of glamour to any look.

I have reviewed two other Alima Pure collections prior to this one and I really loved both but I have to say this is my favorite one yet! I'm a neutral kind of gal but I try to avoid boring neutrals. If you're like me in that regard then this is the set for you! The collection is made up of 4 cake inspired shades that are all zero calorie, guilt free, and 100% natural (as are all Alima Pure products).

First up is Angel Food, which is a golden honey shade with very fine shimmer to it. This shadow would work well as an all over color or even a highlight shade.

Next is Strawberry Shortcake, a pale pink with fine shimmer and larger gold shimmer. This color is gorgeously sparkly and looks great on inner corners.

Red Velvet, the stand out of the collection in my opinion, is the most amazing medium brown shade that has a red undertone and touch of shimmer. I love red-based browns and this is the best one that I have ever come across. It makes a lovely contour shade.

Last but not least is the shade Devil's Food, a deep, dark brown shimmery shadow which is great for lining or adding to the outer corners for a sultry effect.

As with the other collections I have tried, these 4 shadows are very pigmented, easy to work with, and long lasting. A little goes a very long way with these products and I absolutely think Alima Pure is worth a look. You can apply these shadows dry for a more subtle look or wet for more drama.

This collection is worth every penny and I have a feeling this collection won't last long so hurry to checkout if you're interested. The set comes in Alima Pure's signature chocolate bag for only $32. $2 from each sale of this collection will be donated to the Global Fund for Women.

(FTC: Alima Pure so generously provided me with deluxe samples for review consideration. I am not being compensated to write this review. All thought and opinions, as always, and my own and honest.)

  1. This is a really cute presentation of the shadows. I've never heard of this brand but will have to check out as I really enjoy mineral shadows.
