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 Swatches: Comparing Three Benefit Cosmetics Highlighters!
As requested, here are some swatches that will help you compare the three Benefit Cosmetics highlighters: Girl Meets Pearl, High Beam, and Moon Beam.

Meilily to the rescue! Believe me, after you see these highlighters swatched side by side, you will see a difference… Check out Meilily’s Benefit highlighter comparison swatches: › Continue reading

Meilily Product Photos & Swatches: Benefit Cosmetics Moon Beam Iridescent Complexion Enhancer!
Following on the success of their popular High Beam pink highlighting liquid, Benefit Cosmetics has created a new sister-product called Moon Beam. Moon Beam is a “golden apricot” illuminating liquid that is similar to High Beam but with pinkish iridescent shimmer instead of silver-pink iridescence.
Moon Beam comes in a glass bottle with a built-in nail polish brush cap. Since it is not a very runny formula, it is probably best blended with fingers or a sponge.

Lipstick Queen’s Butterfly Ball collection of lipsticks has gotten some buzz, particularly since this collection is inspired by the famous quote from legendary boxer Mohammed Ali, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”
These lipsticks seem to be an exercise in juxtaposition – like sweet and sour or butterfly wings and bee stings – with the “sting” coming from the turquoise blue-purple flash of shimmer in each lipstick.
