I received this in Hellebore in an Inner Circle box and love it! It has a beautiful luminosity and stays on all day. This shade is definitely more subtle so I like to use it with other colors to brighten and highlight. The description is “a heathered rose with gold sparkles” but the sparkles are very fine so this really shows as a cool tone soft pinky neutral on the skin. I’ve also mixed this with the W3ll People clear gloss to make a soft shimmering lip gloss :-)

Received Hellebore in my inner circle package and am very pleased. Pretty rose colour with some sparkle for oomph. I found I needed to layer it a bit to receive that desired effect.

This is just an ok eyeshadow. It could use a lot more pigment, even on my (very fair) skin Hellbore is hard to see. Works ok as a highlighter, as another review pointed out, but not as a main color.

Hard to detect on my skintone, but nice highlighter
Pretty shade of eye shadow in the jar, but it is basically invisible against my skintone. Guess I could use it as a highlighter, if I used highlghters. Would have preferred a deeper shade sample.

A great long lasting and pretty shadow!
I received this eye shadow in Hellebore in the Inner Circle box and I love it. It’s the perfect soft rosy color with a little shimmer to it. I like that it has the shimmer, but it isn’t overly sparkly/glittery. It applies real well and lasts all day.

Luminous and Pure!!
I received Helleborn in my monthly saffron rouge inner circle. Just gorgeous!! It is a shimmer light rose color that goes on very pigmented, even without a primer. Just lovely as a highlighter for your eyes or even cheekbones! And you cannot go wrong with this ingredient list – very natural and pure.

Very pretty and shimmery
What a wonderful eyeshadow, I am completely happy with it. It stays on througout the day and it is so pretty and shimmery. I ordered the Chai color, and it is very nice light brownish/tan color, that can be used for every day ocassions.

There's nothing hellish about Hellebore!
I absolutely love Alima Pure eyeshadow! When I switched to all natural makeup a while back, I mourned losing my tried-and-true super pigmented eyeshadows from MAC and Dior. Then I found Alima. I recently bought Hellebore and Aubergine, and have had Chai for a while. Chai is a great versatile lid color, especially when paired with brown shadow liner, but Hellebore knocks it out of the water for me. (For reference, I have green eyes, and wear Beige 3 in Alima Foundation.) Hellebore comes out lighter on me than in the picture- more of a shimmery petal pink. I use it all over the lid with some black shadow liner on top for a little cat eye and WOW. My eyes are very dry and can get bloodshot, but with this combo, I noticed right away how bright the whites of my eyes look! Even behind glasses, you can see my eye color with this shade. Highly recommended!

I’ve never tried loose powder eyeshadows before, but it was really easy to apply with a brush. I ordered the color in Venus, which is a shimmery light nude color. Next time I think I would like to try chai for a bit more color! For lasting powder, Venus seemed to last most of my day.

Sphinx is my favourite!
Of all the colours I ordered, Sphinx was the one I was least sure about. As it turns out, I think it’s my favourite eye shadow. It’s a lovely dark bronzey brown pewter colour that really complements my blue eyes and fair skin.
Give your eyes a celestial shimmer with a luminous eyeshadow that’s out of this world!
