Review: Alima Pure Satin Matte Blush, Luminous Shimmer Blush, and Bronzer

When it comes to cheek color, I tend to stay local to certain colors. I used to go for rosy pinks when I was blonde, but now I tend to look for coral pinks as a redhead. I'm also particular about the bronzer colors that I use, as I want something dark enough to look like a shadow but light enough to look natural in the sun. Alima Pure sets itself apart by offering a broad range of options for cheek color, including satin matte blushluminous shimmer blush, and bronzer.

  • Affordable
  • Safe, simple ingredients
  • Available in a great range of colors
  • Shimmers are subtle
  • Offers a natural look
  • Colors are highly pigmented
  • No pressed versions available
These cheek colors come in a wide range of colors, with a selection broad enough for any skin tone. I love how there are separate matte and shimmer finishes for the blush. I perfer matte myself (as it photographs the best on my clients), but shimmers can be nice for everyday wear. There are also several bronzer options, including matte and shimmer finishes, too. The lighter shades could even work as highlighters.

While I have a soft spot for pressed blushes, due to their convenience and the ease of applying them, loose blushes tend to be more gentle and affordable. These cheek colors rate about a low 2 on the EWG Skin Deep database. Alima also offers sample sizes at a very affordable price, making it easy to find your favorite colors. However, I would still love to see a pressed formulation some day.  If you're searching for a wide selection of affordable loose cheek color options, Alima Pure is a great place to look.
