If you’re looking to brighten up your color palette for Spring and you haven’t yet checked out mineral cosmetics brand Alima Pure, I am certain you will enjoy this peek at their new Limited Edition Rainforest Collection set. (For soft romantic shades, be sure to check out the Alima Pure Fairy Tale collection.)
The new Alima Pure Spring 2011 Rainforest Collection includes four finely milled mineral eye shadows inspired by the “jewels of the earth,” the rainforest. (Shown above clockwise from top left: Kapok, Macaw, Bromeliad, Jaguar).

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!)

Meilily Product Photos: L’Occitane Limited Edition Peony Makeup Collection!
Exciting news! L’Occitane’s limited edition makeup collection is here! In select L’Occitane stores only, this rare garden-inspired Peony Makeup Collection is a must-see.
While wandering through a L’Occitane shop, I was drawn to a display of what appeared to be colorful flower seed packets. Imagine my surprise when I realized that L’Occitane, best known as a bath and skincare brand, has a new makeup collection out, and a pretty one at that. Each limited edition makeup shade is named after a particular peony.
Meilily’s top picks from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection:
- Liquid Shine Lip Colour in 01 Marie Riviere (a flattering medium-pigmented gloss inspired by a “delicate salmon-pink peony,” according to L’Occitane)
- Facecolour Powder in 02 Valse de Vienne (a pretty “glossy pale pink” blush/eyeshadow)
- Lipstick in 03 Mme Louis Henry (a very sheer warm-pink shimmer lipstick inspired by “a pink peony with old-gold patina reflections”)

Meilily Product Pick & Photos: Shu Uemura Limited Edition Mini Brush Set by Tsumori Chisato!
If you like cute cat designs like I do, you’ll love the Shu Uemura Limited Edition Holiday Collection, which includes this Mini Brush Set designed by Japanese fashion designer, Tsumori Chisato. Luckily, the Tsumori Chisato makeup brush set, complete with super-cute winking cat design, is currently still available online at the Shu Uemura website for a limited time. Unfortunately, this collection has been out for a while and Shu Uemura is pulling it’s US brick and mortar shops, so your best bet is getting these online.
[Btw: Shu currently has an anniversary website special from May 10 - 14 with code HAPPY for 20% off and free shipping on orders over $50]
Even the box that the Tsumori Chisato Mini Brush Set comes in is fantastically cute – with gold metallic stars and, again, that adorable winking black cat!

For a Cause: Kiehl’s Limited Edition Celebrity-Designed Acai Toning Mists Benefit the Rainforest Alliance

Meilily Product Photos: Kiehl’s Celebrity-Designed Acai Toning Mists!
What do recording artist Pharrell Williams, actress Julianne Moore, artist Jeff Koons, and model Malia Jones have in common? They have all designed limited edition labels for Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, with up to $200,000 of net profits from the sale of the celebrity Toning Mists going to the Rainforest Alliance.
These 100% organic Limited Edition Acai Toning Mists are available in Kiehl’s stores now for $26 for a 6 fl. oz. spray bottle (same price as the regular bottles). These lavender-scented toning face mists are are my current “hot product” picks for Spring and Summer. The limited editions may also be slight reformulations of the regular Acai Toning Mist, which also contains “100% natural origin ingredients” but do not say they are “100% organic.”

Can one have a crush on brushes? I don’t normally get excited about makeup brushes, other than synthetic kabuki’s, but Lancome’s new limited edition blue-black makeup brushes are immensely attractive, and this brush set is one of only a few new products that I predict will strike ahhhh in the hearts of consumers everywhere.
The limited edition “Declaring Indigo” set of Lancome’s new blue-black brushes will be available to ship from Nordstrom.com starting July 17, 2009 (pre-order now). This smolderingly beautiful new Lancome brush set is a $124 value, and comes with four blue and black bristle brushes and a pretty blue-black brush clutch for only $52.
The Nordstrom-exclusive Lancome brush set includes the following 4 brushes:
- Mineral Powder Foundation Brush
- Foundation Brush #2 (liquid foundation brush)
- Blender Brush #4 (face and eye blender)
- Dual-Ended Brush #18 (liner and shadow)
*To view a larger-size image of the brush set with bag, click here.
(Note: According to Lucky Magazine, the price of this brush set will go up a lot after August 2!)
[Update: I checked out these brushes in person, and most of them are synthetic, according to the salesperson. I think only the blender is not synthetic. Also, the bag is really cute!]
