Alima Pure Satin Matte Foundation Review

In the world of beauty products, Alima Pure’s Satin Matte Foundation is one of the few items that I repurchase time and time again. This foundation has only 4 ingredients and offers an incredible 45 shades to choose from with 5 different undertones. 45 shades!!! If you’ve struggled with finding your perfect match and always settled for the next best, then you have to give this a try.

This foundation claims to: -Provide weightless buildable coverage -Enhance complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores -Give a smooth matte finish with a subtle glow

In a nutshell, this foundation does exactly what it claims. You can see in my photos the difference in my skin tone and texture after the foundation is buffed in. I don’t think I need to say much more as the unedited photos tell all! Note- my skin looks worse than usual since I only got a couple hours sleep the night before so pardon my haggard appearance.

Some tips I have to make the most out of this foundation: -Make sure your skin is well moisturized or your primer is a little tacky. This foundation looks SO amazing when it can grab onto a sticky (is there a better word?) base. -Use a dense buffing brush. Apply gently in circular motions- clockwise and counter clockwise. When you go in both directions over the same area the foundation blends in beautifully and makes your pores and lines disappear. -Use a setting spray. A setting spray or mist (whatever you have) fuses everything together and makes your makeup look seamless.

One of the reasons why I also love this foundation so much is the ability to purchase sample sizes. For just $1.75 each, you can get a good-sized sample to test out. Or, you can do what I do and buy the sample sizes to adjust for my current skin color. (For reference I am around a MAC NC20-25/ NARS Sheer Glow in Ceylan) I am currently using shade Warm 2, but I have Warm 1 to lighten it up a little when I need it. There was a time when I was really tan and had to use Olive 1.5 because Warm looked too yellow. I could also get away with Olive 0. If you try out each of the tones and still don’t find a perfect match then you could try mixing them all together. I did this once and it ended up being 100% accurate. Sadly, I have never been able to recreate it. It was some mixture of beige, neutral, warm, and olive. The point is it is possible to get a true match with this foundation!

Thank you, Alima Pure for creating such an outstanding foundation and ending my shade matching struggles!

P/S: It's better than Bare Minerals. Way better. :)
