Satin Matte Foundation by Alima Pure

In case you haven’t realised, we looove mineral powder foundations! Check out the earlier reviews we did on mineral foundations by BareMinerals and Tarte.

Overall, we liked those products, but weren’t completely in love. The colours were not a 100% match and we were looking for a ‘cleaner’ product with fewer, more natural ingredients. So the search continued and led to the Satin Matte Foundation by Alima Pure.

What really convinced me to order from Alima Pure was the fact that you can order a box with 10 sample sizes on their website. Alima Pure is hardly available here in Europe and I didn’t want to commit to buying the full size product without testing the colour first. Which is why this sample box is a perfect idea! I got Set 3 in the shade Light.  This box also comes with a Kabuki Brush. This vegan brush might be the fluffiest thing I own!

After some serious testing I decided that shade Beige 3 was my perfect match! With the sample box comes a $10 credit for your next purchase at Alima Pure so I went ahead and bought the full size product. 

The application of the product is very similar to most of the other mineral powders. Dab the brush into the product and swirl over your face in circular motions. The Satin Matte foundation has medium coverage but is buildable to full coverage. I really like how weightless this stuff feels on my face, like I’m wearing no makeup at all. The foundation does a great job covering up imperfections and redness and creates an even skin tone without looking cakey or powdery on me. And with a wide range of 45 shades and 5 undertones you will find the colour that matches your skin tone perfectly! I only have two tiny tiny things to complain about… 😉 This foundation does not keep me shine free all day on its own so I have to use a powder to set it. Also, when I’m having an active busy day I feel like it can wear off more easily so I would recommend to re-apply before going out after a long day at work. Honestly though: since this product is so natural and feels so lightweight on my skin I am more than happy to accept those two minor minus points. Overall I am hugely impressed with the quality of this product and am more than happy to recommend it to you guys!
