Meilily Product Photos & Details: Alima Pure Mineral Makeup Holiday 2010 Fairy Tale Collection Sets!
Even if you don’t believe in fairy tales anymore, you will want to check out mineral cosmetics brand Alima Pure and their Limited Edition Holiday Fairy Tale Collection sets. I tried the Limited Edition “Once Upon a Time” (shown above) and “Happily Ever After” mineral makeup sets from the Fairy Tale Collection, and am now enchanted with Alima Pure’s high-quality additive-free mineral cosmetics.
Not only does Alima Pure know how to make high quality mineral makeup, but they also really know how to package it. You’ll easily fall in love with Alima Pure’s beautiful pigments and also their whimsical motifs. (Apparently Alicia Silverstone is a fan too)! Best of all, Alima Pure products are fragrance-free and formulated without irritants like bismuth oxychloride or preservatives. (Btw, they’ve even received a Certified Natural Cosmetics seal under strict European standards!)
The Alima Pure Holiday 2010 Fairy Tale Collection includes › Continue reading

Meilily Product Launch News!
This month, tarte cosmetics is launching three new products as part of the tarte summer 09 collection and some new shades. The new tarte summer 09 collection looks to be more of an innovative departure from their previous color-based collections and includes a natural lash enhancer and an anti-cellulite self-tanner! I’m really curious to try the new products and see how they work, especially since I’ve had really good luck with tarte products so far.
multiplEYE natural lash enhancer ($65)
Contains a clinically-proven peptide that gives the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. Apparently 90% of clinical subjects reported an “increase in lash thickness,” while all subjects reported an “increase in overall lash length.” Sounds impressive. Best of all, this lash enhancer is cruelty-free and free of parabens, petro-chemicals, dyes, and other questionable ingredients.
celluFIGHT natural anti-cellulite self-tanner ($40)
A double-duty skin-toning skincare product and self-tanner in one! I don’t normally self-tan because I’m too lazy for that, but this sounds intriguing. Ingredients include natural plant-derived DHA self-tanner, caffeine, algae extract, and natural green tea fragrance that is 70% organic.
eyeQuatic waterproof summer essentials set ($35)
This makeup set includes three new lock & roll eyeshadows (turquoise, citrine, tanzanite), a deluxe lights, camera, splashes! waterproof mascara, and an aquatic-mod headscarf.

Peacekeeper Cause-metics is celebrating their 6th Anniversary with a one week sale ending soon!
From April 7 – 14, 2009, get 20% off Peacekeeper makeup from www.iamapeacekeeper.com, always with free shipping!
I’m a big fan of the Peacekeeper Cause-metics philosophy of producing safer cosmetics while promoting women’s rights. Did you know Peacekeeper donates all after-tax profits to women’s health and human rights concerns?
I discovered Peacekeeper a while back when looking for a nail polish with not-so-toxic ingredients and also vegan-friendly products. Now, one of my favorite Peacekeeper products is the Nail Paint, a nail polish (Big 3-Free) that wears like iron, yet removes easily.
Meilily Shopping Tip: Consider ordering a custom gift set (including nail polish, lip gloss, and lipstick) if you’re interested in trying several Peacekeeper products, since you can save a little money that way.
Do check back for Peacekeeper products photos and reviews! from Meilily
