quality product, chic
I bought the shade Paris and am satisfied with the product. It’s not garishly sparkly for a shimmer eyeshadow, just reflective. I am quite fair [blue eyes, freckled] and this was very subtle. A more dramatic look would require many layers of pigment.

I love this shadow – the colors are true, it lasts, and it’s not too sparkly. Unfortunately, it does not work as well as an eyeliner – when I purchased it, I didn’t know Alima had another product for specific use as an eyeliner. As long as you are not expecting it to do double-duty, it’s an excellent product!

More of a pretty shimmer than a matte eyeshadow
This eyeshadow is more of a pretty shimmer than a matte. Very luminous. I got buttercream and mink. I prefer the mink, buttercream is too light for my fair skin. I noticed if I don’t apply a moisturizer before apply this eyeshadow, it doesn’t last very long. Will try satin matte eyeshadow next. This product may work better for a shimmer over top regular eyeshadow.

Gorgeous and lasts
Typically I would need to put a base on my lids before applying eyeshadow so that it would stay on and not cake. With Alima Pure eyeshadows I do NOT have to do that! Pure, quality ingredients = staying power. These shadows are simply sparkling and really highlight your eyes well. Highly recommended.

Pretty shades, easy on the eyes.
Awesome Eyeshadow. Great colours that blend nicely. I have sensitive skin and the shadows don’t irritate the delicate skin above my eyes. Colours are soft and subtle too. Can’t wait to try out new shades.

Didn't last on my eyes
For some reason, these shadows did not stay on my lid at all. They either disappeared, or if I had on a darker shade, fell down under my eyes within a short time.

creates beautiful tasteful shimmery eyes
I bought this eyeshadow in Venus and Paris. Every time I wear them I get compliments. They’re shimmery, not glittery, and they make you look sexy, not like a disco ball. These colors are not too bold and not too sheer. The only thing about them is that they do need a touch up in the middle of the day if you get hot! In the heat they tend to crease, but I guess all eyeshadows do that!

Great line of eyeshadows. The range of colours is lovely. They do contain quite a bit of shimmer, so a little bit goes a long way.

Very nice glamorous look. The shimmer is beautiful. I tried the meringue.

This eye shadow is the best. It goes on very easily and the color lasts all day. Also, at this price point, you can afford to buy more than one.
