I love the deep, rich colors behind this gorgeous collection, Me Encanta from Kristen Arnett and Alima Pure. You might know Kristen from the popular site, The Green Beauty Team and also from her work as a makeup artist. Alima Pure is one of the top clean makeup brands so a partnership makes perfect sense!
Here are the details of how the collection was born:
“Kristen had just returned from a trip to Spain, where she saw the most amazing flamenco dancers in action. We were captivated her story about the dichotomy of delicate versus strong, masculine versus feminine, which all women seemingly embody. Her message resonated with us; hence the name of the makeup collection, Me Encanta.” – Alima Pure
The limited edition holiday collection features:
Flamenco Limited Edition Eyeshadow – shimmery navy blue, perfect as an all-over eyeshadow or as a dramatic eyeliner and crease shadow when dipped in water.
Sombra Contour Powder – natural bronzing color to add definition to the cheekbones and shadow along the jawbone and around the hairline.
Pink Satin Matte Blush – soft neutral pink that provides a natural winter flush to the cheeks and make you look like you’ve been dancing all night.
Baila Lip Tint – a gorgeous Spanish Rose red tint to liven up the face without overpowering the dramatic eyes and cheeks.
Black Natural Definition Mascara – buildable color to add natural volume to your lashes.
I tried the eye shadows and I like how smooth they were, how colorful. I used a wet angled brush to apply the deep blue as an eyeliner and its lasted all day. The blush is lovely- fine milled and smooth in texture. The lip tint is a sheer bold color- dramatic for this pale blonde and ideal for a night out.
I am very excited for Kristen! How wonderful to develop a collection with a brand like Alima Pure. Congratulations to her!
