It’s Finally Here!!

You’ve been asking for it and it took two years to make!! Introducing….

LimeLife’s New WATERPROOF MASCARA!


People are already buzzing about this mascara! You have been asking for it for as long as I can remember and it is finally here! The reason it took so long? Because they did not rest until they perfected the formula. When it comes to waterproof mascara there are a few things that set apart an amazing formula from an average formula. Does it not only stand up to tears, water, and sweat, but the oils that come from oily skin? Does it make lashes feel soft opposed to stiff? Is it not only gentle of eyelashes, but does it nourish lashes as well? Ours checks all the boxes! Making Waves Waterproof Mascara is officially here and I cannot wait for you to try it!

This waterproof mascara gives maximum volume and holds while nourishing lashes. The vegan, waterproof formula lasts all day without smudging or flaking. Shea Butter provides glossiness to the lashes making them look darker while Vitamin E moisturizes lashes making them feel soft.

The proof is in the pudding, let’s see what everyone is so dang excited about!

I mean, could these ladies be any more beautiful?!

We all know that waterproof mascara takes a little more work to get it off, hence thats it’s waterproof! 🤣 because of this, I strongly recommend getting our Make-off Remover spray. It’s seriously amazing! The spray is an oil free formula that will remove your makeup without feeling greasy. It’s safe on false lashes, and I love using it on a q-tip to fix any little mistakes I may have made. I just spray it all over my face and let it sit for about 10 seconds and then start wiping my face away.

It’s important to note that you should remove your makeup before washing your face to ensure your face is actually clean!

Sooo excited about this new mascara! It’s available everywhere on my website, including all of the customizable collections where mascara is included. To get the perfect eye look, grab the Take Two Collection! you can chose your own mascara and eyeliner, get an eyelash curler, and the Make-off Makeup Remover Spray! You’ll save money with the collection and it will ship for free!

How to Find Your Perfect Foundation Shade

Picking out a foundation shade can be the most nerve wracking part of getting new makeup. Even in the stores it’s hard to tell if the color you see in the bottle will match the color of your skin.

LimeLife by Alcone has the best foundation that I’ve ever tried, and I feel like I’ve tried them all! In fact, many celebrity makeup artists use the same foundation. I’ve written another blog post, foundation 101, where I’ve talked about this before but it’s been a year. We’ve added some new shades so I thought I would make an updated post!

LimeLife brought in professional makeup artist, Danessa Myricks, to help expand our makeup line to be more diverse. With this, came more foundation shades for darker skin tones, so we needed a new quiz. Professional makeup artist to the stars, Kat Aragon, created this incredibly accurate quiz. She’s a genius when it comes to color matching!

Here is the link to the color matching quiz!

When it comes to LimeLife, the names of the foundations can trip people up a little bit. If you have a pink undertone to your skin, you will be in the Olive shades. If you have yellow undertones then you will be in the Shinto line. Here are a few visuals that will help.

Now I’m not going to be able to go a whole makeup post without showing some before and afters 🤪 They’re just so dang good! LimeLife’s Perfect Foundation is 50% pigmented which is more than double most high-end makeup brands. It’s noncomedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores. It’s truly perfect! Okay so let’s check out these incredible beauty guides that have shared their results with us!

Stunning right?!

Now that you’ve seen the amazingness, take the quiz here and if you still feel unsure, feel free to leave me a message on this post, contact me on Facebook, or Instagram. Include a picture of yourself in natural lighting like this and I can tell you which shade is best for you!

Tips

– When applying your foundation be light handed. The pigment in LimeLife’s foundation is much more than others. A little goes a long way! It’s buildable so feel free to put on a small amount and you can always add more for more coverage.

– I recommend setting foundation with a setting powder. It will help it last longer and give it a more matte finish. If you need a new powder, LimeLife has a great setting powder that is translucent and will work on all skin tones.

– LimeLife has a 30 day money back guarantee, with a super simple return/exchange policy

– Free shipping starting at $77

Ordering

Don’t forget your tools! If you need a new makeup brush, I love the diffuser brush #17. My personal favorite way to apply this foundation is with a damp blenderful.

LimeLife Botanical Wax Foundation

I can’t wait for you to try your new foundation! It’s been a total game changer for me!

November 2019 Amazebox

I haven’t shared an Amazebox reveal in a few months so I thought I would give a look at my latest box! If you don’t know what an Amazebox is, its LimeLife by Alcone’s monthly subscription box. You can read more about it in my blog post here.

One thing I love is each box has its own theme. The theme of the November box was Gold. Even the signature black AmazeBox was turned gold this month, which I thought was a really cute detail. I’m a packaging snob and LimeLife’s packaging is always on point. 👌

Here were the contents of the November box:

I was so excited to see all this goodness in one box! Each box contains a little inspiration card.

And a sticker that coordinates with the theme of the box.

This box also contained a little card about our Brighter Together Foundation. You can read this post to learn more about the foundation.

Lush Mini Powder Brush

Now on to the good stuff! First, this mini powder brush. LimeLife offers a full range of professional makeup brushes. They don’t offer this mini brush but I do think it’s a great representation of their brush line. Often times when you find mini makeup brushes they are low quality and the bristles are thin and sparse. This brush is quite the opposite. I was surprised to see how thick and lush this little brush is. Perfect for throwing it in your travel bag!

Forty Cure Creme

Forty Cure Creme is one of my favorite skincare products! It’s an all natural hand and body cream that contains Tamanu Seed oil. If you haven’t heard of Tamanu Seeds, they’re harvested from “The Forty Cure” tree in Tahiti. It’s like a magic potion when in your skincare and is used to treat wounds, rashes, burns, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dry skin, stretch marks. Like literally 40 things. This is also the only lotion that my daughter with eczema will let me use on her. It heals her up quickly and it doesn’t “burn” her skin like a lot of lotions do. Plus I can use it without worry because it’s harsh chemical free! We always keep Forty Cure Creme in stock at home. I’m thankful for this mini bottle because it’s easy to keep in my bag. While I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they make mini bottle available to purchase, you can get a full size tub here.

Check out some of these before and after of Forty Cure Creme amazingness!

Full Sized Bronzer

Included in my Amazebox was a full sized bronzer. If you’ve been wanting to try makeup from LimeLife, you cannot go wrong with trying one of the blushes or bronzers. They’re all amazing! LimeLife offers 7 different shades of bronzer. I received bronzer #1 in my box which is their original bronzer. It has a touch of shimmer to it. It’s not at all glittery or overly shimmery. It’s very subtle and a beautiful color. There are 2 Shimmer bronzers and 5 Matte bronzers. Here are some swatches to help you decide which shade you want.

Full Sized Masque of Zen

Masque of Zen is an acne fighting mask that contains Montana Clay, Tea Tree Oil, White Carrot Oil, and Cinnamon Bark. These products together fight against the major causes of skin imbalance. This mask helps reduce acne break outs, can be used as an overnight spot treatment, and will improve the health of your skin. For a full regimen for acne prone skin, check out this post. Here are some pics to demonstrate the power of Masque of Zen. All natural skincare that works!

Fall 2019 Makeup Collection

Every year, LimeLife collaborates with a new professional makeup artist to develop their fall line. This year, things went in a bit of a different direction. While LimeLife is a professional makeup company, women’s empowerment is at the heart of the company. That is why this year, the celebrity collaboration was none other than gymnastics gold medalist, Aly Raisman.

Aly is not only a gold medalist, she is also an activist, author, and role-model. She is a reminder that we are all more than what meets the eye. Aly’s values and what she stands for perfectly aligns with LimeLife. She wanted the collection to be called “Fierce,” a tribute to the name of her book and her team, “The Fierce Five.” You would think with the name of Fierce, she would go with bold and bright colors. Instead she wanted to go more natural because she says, “Even if your makeup is subtle, it can still make a statement.”

Let check out Aly’s collab!

Included in this collection is three LIMITED EDITION eyeshadow palettes, six lipsticks, and four double ended eyeliners. The launch is being split into two dates. Eyeshadows and lipsticks are available now, liners will be available soon! So while we wait for the liners, lets take a better look at the shadows and lipsticks!

*UPDATE- the liners are now available! You can see them HERE.

Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palettes

There are 3 eyeshadow palettes. These palettes are perfect for on the go! A palette with a mirror, 3 shadows, and a double ended eyeshadow brush. This is a great way to start your makeup collection or to throw in your makeup bag for after the gym, or a work trip!

These shadows are HIGHLY pigmented and are professional grade! The packaging also comes with little holes behind the shadows, so if you want to pop out a shade and pop in another LimeLife shade, it will fit perfectly and you can have a great personalized palette. To see more about personalized palettes, check out This post.

If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know I love a good swatch and a true test of what these colors can do. Here are some swatches and also some looks made with these palettes!

P.S. I love how Aly chose inspiring messages to go on the packaging and in the names of the shadows.<3

Lipsticks

Aly loves to wear natural makeup so she decided to do a few different shades of nudes. Nudes for every skin tone 🙌

Those names 😍 *swoon*

It’s all so gorgeous! I can’t wait until the eyeliners come out! I don’t want to dangle something in front of you that you can’t get so I’ll wait. But y’all! They’re amazing!!

Here’s a sneak peek

Don’t forget that when shopping at LimeLife and everything comes with a 30 day 100% money back guarantee! Plus free shipping at $77! So it’s seriously risk free!!
