Alima Pure Lip Tints


I’ve reviewed Alima more than any other natural makeup line, simply because I love everything they do. Their blushes and eyeshadows are richly pigmented and gorgeous, their foundations provide luminous coverage, and their brushes are top-notch. And now that Alima has revamped their lipbalms, I can honestly say I love them too.

The previous lipbalms were perfectly fine, but they were a little thin and frankly the packaging was nothing special. Both issues have been addressed in Alima’s Natural Lip Tint as the texture is thicker like a balm should be, and the packaging has been upgraded to reflect thier overall aesthetic. The tube is sleek and slim which makes application easier than before and I love its sweet yet elegant Alima design. All of the ingredients are organic, save for the mineral pigments, and features the antioxidant action of pomegranate seed.

I mentioned that the new formula is a bit thicker and more balm-like than its predecessor. While this is true, Alima’s balms are by no means super thick or waxy. The texture is silky and feels very sheer but hydrating. I consider them a balm/stain hybrid as they provide excellent pigmentation, without a glossy effect. Therefore, if I want a satiny finish, I leave it as is. If I want more shine, then a lipgloss on top does the trick.

2016 Update: Since I originally posted this review, the colors and packaging have been updated but I understand that the formula is the same. I hope to review the new colors ASAP! Picture above is the newest of the new packaging!

  1. I’ve been wanting to try Alima cosmetics for a while, but nothing seems to push me over the edge like a great tinted lip balm–my absolute favorite! Ok, think I must go make a purchase now…

    1. While you’re at it, check out their blushes! They are so pretty. Bisque, Apple Blossom, Mimosa and Tulip are my faves.

  2. Great review, I was wondering about these! Seems like a good price for an organic tinted lip balm– I’ve seen a lot of other ones that were a lot pricier. Think I’ll try Sweet Pea with my next Alima order.
