Alima Pure has reintroduced a totally updated recipe and shades for their Velvet Lipsticks.
**Please note several of these shades contain synthetic colors.** See below for more about this.
Made with a luxe blend of natural oils and waxes, it moisturizes and saturates your lips in rich, hydrating color, leaving a comfortable, semi-matte finish. Velvet Lipstick performs like a lipstick, but feels like a balm.
These go on in a thin, flexible layer that performs almost more like a stain. The effect is sophisticated, and the colors are vivid. It's a nice contrast to our offerings from Hynt and Axiology, which have a much more moist and glossy finish.
Key Ingredients in Alima Pure Velvet Lipsticks:
Sea Buckthorn - Rich in Omega 7, it is deeply hydrating for smooth, rejuvenated lips.
Avocado Oil - Naturally rich in amino acid proteins, Vitamin A, D, E, and potassium, avocado oil boosts elasticity for hydrated, healthy lips.
Squalane - This hydration superstar acts as a natural barrier to keep lips soft and supple.
It is difficult to offer certain shades in 100% natural pigments, so for those individuals that want a natural base and don't mind synthetic colors to create their ideal look these will offer you a good choice. They are also carmine free now, which vegan shoppers will enjoy. While synthetic colors are not something we usually want to support we feel as long as you are informed up front you can make a decision that will be good for you. Certainly Alima Pure's ingredient choices are better than any fully synthetic lipstick, and a favorite shade of lipstick can be an occasional indulgence in a healthy beauty regimen. If you want lipstick that is 100% naturally pigmented then please check out Axiology's range on our site.
