Complete your mineral makeup collection with one of Alima Pure®’s Satin Matte blushes.

Alima Pure®

Birchbox Breakdown

Smoky eyes are here to stay. The look is everywhere, from the runway—we loved Clé de Peau’s rose gold take for Vera Wang—to the Oscars’ red carpet, where Amanda Seyfried rocked a lavender smoky eye. This collection, created exclusively for Birchbox, is the perfect kit for creating a subtle but still sultry smoky eye. Each set includes two full-size eye shadows, in Hot Toddy (bronze) and Tiramisu (dark brown), plus a full-size shimmer powder in Firelight (gold).

How it Works

Alima Pure® mineral powders don’t contain any parabens, preservatives, or artificial dyes. They’re specifically formulated for sensitive skin, so you can wear them all day long without worrying about irritation. Plus, the richly pigmented shades are concentrated—a little goes a long way.

How to Use

Using an eyeshadow brush, apply the bronze Hot Toddy shadow all over your eyelids for a shimmery base. To add a bit of come-hither drama, apply the dark brown Tiramisu to your crease and along your bottom lash line. Use the gold Firelight shimmer to highlight your brow bone and cheekbones.

Feels immature
Purchased

First, the colors I got didn't match the description. I got no tiramisu. Instead, I got a shade that was actually lighter than the hot toddy so the smokey eye directions are wrong. This stuff is almost pure glitter and sparkle more appeasing to a teenager. A tiny amount sends your eyes into a shimmer like crazy - and you can barely tell the color of the shadow underneath. The price on this makes this a big miss with me. I needed a simple, daytime smokey eye. Since the colors aren't the same, I can't achieve it with the set, but further - it's not subtle... AT ALL.

LOVE this!
Purchased

This a great product from a local company to me in Portland, Oregon. These are great and having been a fan of these for years, happy to see they were on birchbox! These colors are simply beautiful! I am in love with the quality of colors and the little bird design and outer packaging is beautiful! Will definitely re purchase more of this brand!

Love It !
Purchased

I love the colors and the shimmer. But my most favorite thing is that it doesn't make me sick or give me a headache which is hard to do with eye make-up for me. I really love this product all the way around. Thank you !

Creates a Fabulous Glow
Purchased

The eye shadow I have used every day and I love the sparkle and bling it brings. The shimmer power I save for special occasions and have used it on my daughter for her dance recital. It creates a fabulous sparkle and glow.

A lot of pigment
Purchased

While all of these colors are gorgeous, the pigment is a little to overpowering for my taste. I love a great neutral smoky eye but this is too much. I may try using a natural brush instead of synthetic to see if that changes the application. Like I said, colors are great but they are extremely bold.

Soft shimmer, super pretty
Purchased

Firstly, I love that these powders are pure and for sensitive skin. I'm definitely thinking about investing in more of Altima pure products once I use up my other products. The hot toddy color is a little too orange for my skin, but tiramisu is a great darker color for when I want to do a smokey eye. I LOVE the shimmer powder for highlighting, it adds a perfect luminescence to add more definition to my face! It's a great little package!

I bought the set and it makes my eyes look so sexy! Stays on well. Blends well. Really like these eye shadows. Together they are a knockout. Great for the evening but I also us it for day time also.

Love, love, love!
Purchased

All 3 of these ended up looking really nice on my skin. I'm pretty pale with rosey undertones. I like to use the Hot Toddy and Tiramisu to create a more dramatic look. Otherwise I'll use the Hot Toddy for daytime. I use the Firelight as a highlight to my cheeks but have used it on my eyes too. Overall the colors are great and they last a long time. They didn't crease for me on my eyelids which usually happens.

Great colors
Purchased

I love the colors in this collection! They go on and blend together well. The only complaint I have is that the colors aren't more intense.
