LimeLife by Alcone has the best foundation I’ve ever used, hands down. This makeup is perfect for women of all ages and all skin tones. I’m over 50, and I have to share about my personal experience with this brand. Have you ever heard of RCMA Professional Foundation? Well, this is it!
As if you hadn’t noticed, I sell LimeLife by Alcone products, I use them, and I absolutely love them. At this moment, I want to highlight one of my absolute favorite products from our company.
If you are anything like me, I wear makeup daily to my office. As I’ve gotten older, I have a greater need to even out my complexion and cover-up those imperfections, like age spots, sun spots, and acne scars.
I’ve used plenty of makeup throughout my life and what I look for in a foundation is 3 key things. It needs to match my complexion perfectly, can’t be too heavy, and most importantly, not break me out. I can honestly say I hit the jackpot with this one. Read on to find out what else I love about it and why you will love it too.
Easy to custom blend
Having the ability to custom blend is important for a few reasons. Our complexion is not usually the same shade year-round. Most people are lighter in the winter than they are in the summer. Factors such as medication, or change in hormones may affect skin tone as well. Our palettes are designed to allow users to customize per their needs. I enjoy the convenience of having more than one shade in a single palette.
Feels light but the coverage is impressive.
Do you like walking around with your face feeling weighed down with makeup? I don’t. I believe foundation should feel weightless. Most times I love to apply makeup lightly with a dampened sponge for a more natural look. Because this foundation is 50% pigmented, less is required to achieve perfect results. Also, since this professional makeup provides full coverage, lots of layering is not usually needed. I never feel like I’m wearing anything on my face which is a big plus, especially when it’s hot.
Doesn’t clog pores
Because my skin is combination, I naturally have large pores in my T-zone, and they seem to get larger the older I get. So, it’s essential that I use products that don’t make that situation worse. In the past, I have used foundation that was too heavy on my skin. While the coverage was great, the makeup made my pores appear even larger. I don’t have this issue with LimeLife’s botanical cream foundation.
I wore a mixture of Sinto 2 and 3 during the summer when I have a tan. I live in Houston, Texas. Try running errands all day when it’s 100 degrees outside. At the end of each day, my foundation was still intact, and my face still looked great. I did sweat, but I was pleasantly amazed at how well my makeup held up. (Note: there are ways to apply foundation to make it last longer. If you need help with this, I can show you a few tips. Reach out to me on social media.) My daughter’s competitive dance team ALL wear LimeLife’s foundation and concealer because it will stay on all day long under the hot lights of the stage.
It won’t age you
Have you ever experienced or seen someone with makeup on that made them look ten years older? I don’t have deep wrinkles, but I do have a few fine lines, and previously I’ve worn foundation that brought attention to those lines. It could have been due to a combination of the product used and technique, but I’m willing to bet it was primarily the makeup! Actually, I think it’s a combination of the fantastic makeup AND the skin care I’ve been using from LimeLife too!
I have super oily skin, and nothing is more unattractive than greasy makeup that separates on the face. My experience with LimeLife’s foundation is while my face is oily, with proper application technique, the makeup still wears very well. I huge help, I must confess, is using our translucent powder that sets the foundation in place and gives you a more matte look. Our foundation and powder are truly the best power couple!
We cater to women of color
In the fourth quarter of 2018, LimeLife finally launched what they had been collaborating on for an entire year. They partnered up with Danessa Myricks, professional makeup artist, to introduce some new foundation shades for women of color. We were the first to admit that our makeup line was not giving these women a fair selection of makeup that worked with their skin. Well, now we have just what they need.
Our Perfect Coverage Botanical Foundation will run you $36 per pan. That’s an excellent price for what you get. Thanks to the high-pigment (50%) payoff, a little goes a very long way.
- Avoid silicone-heavy primers when using this foundation, as the silicone will cause it to slip. Opt for a water-based primer instead.
- Warm the foundation on the back of your hand before application for easier coverage.
- Create a lovely tinted moisturizer by mixing a little foundation with 1 or 2 pumps of Dew Date.
As I stated before, this makeup is hands-down the best I’ve used. The only issue I have is that at times I don’t want to remove it at night because even at bedtime, my face still looks good!
