LimeLife by Alcone Foundation 101

LimeLife by Alcone’s foundation has been a staple in the professional makeup world for over 60 years. It’s so popular for many reasons:

  1. It’s 50% pigmented. A typical foundation from high end stores like Sephora and Ulta is 18%-22% pigmented. A little bit goes a long way! Because you use so little, there’s no worry about your foundation looking or feeling heavy or cakey.

2. Noncomedogenic: Noncomedogenic is a fancy way to say that it won’t clog your pores. Many people say that the foundation clears up their skin! In actuality, they didn’t realize that their former foundation was causing the breakouts.

3. Wax based: LimeLife’s foundation is not a liquid or a cream, it’s a botanical wax base. This gives the foundation a skin like appearance. Plus, it doesn’t absorb into your skin. If you’ve ever noticed your foundation disappearing throughout the day, that’s likely because your foundation is being absorbed into your skin!

4. It’s buildable: you can either put a thin layer of foundation on for a more natural look, or keep building up coverage for a more glam look without getting cakey.

5. One pan of foundation lasts the average customer 6 months or more!

6. Affordable: a pan of foundation is $36. High end foundations can cost you over $100! $36 with the highest pigmentation on the market is a steal!

7. Variety of shades: LimeLife offers 22 shades of foundation. The wide range of shades is a testament to LimeLife and it’s mission to empower women all over the globe!

8. Magnetic pan: The foundation comes in a metal pan. This allows the foundation to stay in magnetic palettes such as the popular Z-palettes.

9. It’s paraben free! Which means there’s no yucky preservatives in your makeup! Plus it’s vegan and leaping bunny certified.

With so many shades, how will you know which is right for you? There is a quiz that you can take, that will determine which shade is right for you. The quiz is over 95% accurate!

•Because LimeLife’s foundations is probably a different texture than you’re used to, it is so highly pigmented. Apply the foundation with a VERY light hand. You can always apply more if you want more coverage!

•For people with oily skin, I strongly recommend setting any foundation you use with a setting powder. If you need one, LimeLife has an amazing translucent setting powder that you can get here. It is also great if you like a matte finish with your makeup.

  1. Are you in the state of KY? I searched for you, but I find NOBODY in KY that sells LimeLife. I was interested in trying it.


  2. I would like to know what color the lady in picture 3 is using. I took the quiz and it said gena beige. I feel my tones are very similar to her picture.


    1. Hi Nancy! The lady in the picture is wearing Shinto 1. Gena Beige has a pink undertone so that is why Shinto works better on the skin tone in the picture.

  3. I am interested in trying this make up! I took the quiz and got olive 2. I would not describe myself as olive skin. I feel like I’m between light and medium. I tan well in the summer but don’t let my face get sun anymore – i always wear sunscreen/hat to prevent further damage. I feel like most of my foundations/concealers are light/med beige.


    1. Hi June! LimeLife’s foundation works great with every skin type! As with all foundations on mature skin, less is more. LimeLife’s foundation works so well on mature skin because it is so pigmented, a little goes a very long way!


    1. Hi Kaitlyn, I sure can! You picked a great time because the complexion palette is on sale for the first time ever, 20% off until tomorrow night!! We have a great color matching quiz that you can take at this link

      or you can email me a picture of yourself in natural light (either in front of a window at home our outside in the shade) and I can let you know what shade you are. You can email me at!
