EOTD + Alima Pure E/S Review + Love Package from UK

Hello my beautiful readers!
Hope everyone is doing well! I'll be starting school this coming Monday & I'm really excited :) I'll be taking 3 fashion classes in our fashion program. WHOO HOO!

Anyways, aside from school...I've been busy & sick all this summer which stinks butt, but I'm all better now. But yeah, so today I woke up with a nice surprise :) I recently had a swap with fellow blogger/ friend, Lydia Kim :) She got me soo much, it's crazy! & I can't believe it got to me within a week. Anyways, I'll be sending your package this monday! Sorry, it's a bit late...just didn't have time this week =/ But yeah, I loved everything since you guys probably know that I'm such a lipstick junkie ^_^
everything came in good condition except for only 1 MUA eye shadow that shattered, so I had to throw it away. But everything else was great :D I'm so pleased!!!

Anyways, thank you so much, Lydia <3 you're the sweetest!!!

Ok, so moving on, here's my EOTD from yesterday. I'm also wearing colored contact lenses from I got the Adore Bi-tone gray. & no! they're not circle lenses hehe!

Also, here's my upcoming post :) just giving you guys a quick sneak peek! What do you guys think?


Alima Pure Cosmetic's sent me 4 samples of their eye shadows a month ago & I haven't really been able to review them until now. Anyways, here are the swatches:

here are the sample jars
Here are the swatches with different finishes

- Jacquard is a matte creme colored eye shadow with tiny flecks of gold
- Brocade is a matte gray (not sky blue as it shows on the picture)
- Tulle is a frost gold color
- Velvet is a matte deep purple

Overall: The colors were really great & pigmented. However, the only difficult thing about using loose pigments is the fact that their would be more fallout that pressed shadows. But the great thing about Alima Pure eye shadows is that it's not only mineral but also uses natural ingredients, which is always great. They have variety of colors and finishes. They also have a nice variety of colors & finishes for blushes, which I would love to try. Also, they offer sample sizes just like the ones I got and sell them for only $1 so if you weren't sure about the brand and want to give their eye shadows a try, then, go ahead & visit
