(one swatch of each shadow with no primer underneath. you can imagine how much more pigmented they are with primer!)
My Thoughts: These are the first eyeshadows I have ever tried from Alima Pure and I must say that I am very impressed. I am not usually a huge fan of mineral eye shadows as I find them to be messy and not so easy to blend with other colors. These eye shadows have changed my entire view on mineral eye shadows in general. I love how easily these apply and I don’t get much fall out from them at all! The colors are super pigmented and look exactly like their descriptions. These shadows do contain shimmer (Thunder is the only matte shade in this collection) but I do not find them to be too glittery or overpowering. I will absolutely be getting more shades from Alima Pure and am eager to try out other products from them as well!
Notes: I would recommend applying a primer/concealer to your eyelid before applying these shadows as they are loose minerals and will not only last longer with something to adhere to underneath but will also be much more pigmented and more true to their colors! I use brushes to apply these shadows but also find that using my fingers work just as well, especially when packing on color to the lid!
Price and Where To Buy: You can buy the entire Stormy Weather collection here for $36.00. Single eyeshadows are $12.50.
