An extra nugget of coolness...

... for the girly girls out there who are trying to be more "green":

I just found out that Alima cosmetics has extended their sale until August 4!

For those of you not familiar with Alima, they make absolutely gorgeous, totally natural mineral makeup. Let me tell you why I love this brand:
1. Unlike mineral makeup from Neutrogena, L'Oreal, or the ever popular BareMinerals, Alima cosmetics' ingredients don't include any chemical additive, but really only minerals;
2. Unlike many all-natural mineral makeup brands, they actually have some really gorgeous colors available;
3. They offer sample sizes! That's right, you can try as many samples as you like, even order only samples of various shades, so you can make up your mind of what colors work best without wasting money nor products!
4. You can send the empty jars back to them for recycling. If you send them 5 empty full-size jars you will get a FREE eyeshadow of your choice.
5. If all the above wasn't enough, every package you receive will include a few FREE samples they pick based on the shades you selected as part of your order. As part of my first order I got 2 shades I loved so much that I included both in my order this time around!

Until August 4, you save 15% on your order if you use this code at checkout: SUMMER08. And if you order 75 dollars worth of products, accessories and samples you will receive a limited edition set of 3 full-sized eyeshadows.

BTW, this isn't an ad. I just really love these products and I thought I'd spread the word. I think you'll love them too!

I found this lovely brand reading Gorgeously Green.

Wow, they do have fabulous colors. The samples sold me! And, they're not as pricey as I would have expected. Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I am a BareMinerals girl. So, I am curious. I will be clicking over to the links in you post and checking things out.

Hmm...I will jot this company down. I use an UBER expensive one recommended by a makeup artist friend, and Bare minerals is too shiny for me.

Thanks for find!
