LimeLife by Alcone has the best foundation I’ve ever used. Regardless of how the title reads, this makeup is perfect for women of all ages. However, I’m over 40 and am writing about my personal experience. Have you ever heard of RCMA Professional Foundation? Well, this is it!
*Edited May 24, 2018. LimeLight by Alcone has rebranded to LifeLime by Alcone after going global. YAY!
As if you hadn’t noticed, I sell LimeLife by Alcone products, I use them, and I love them. At this moment, I want to highlight one of my absolute favorite products from our company.
If you are anything like me, you don’t wear very much makeup daily. There was even a time I refused to wear foundation and actually, didn’t need it. As I’ve gotten older, I do apply a little to even out my complexion and cover-up those imperfections.
I’ve used plenty of makeup throughout my life and what I look for in a foundation is simple. 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 may love it too.
Easy to custom blend.
Having the ability to custom blend is important for a few reasons. One being 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.
Doesn’t clog pores.
Because my skin is oily, I naturally have large pores, 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.
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 my fingers or 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.
I wore a mixture of shades MB5 and MB6 while on vacation in Guam. In the summer. Outside. All day. At the end of each day, my foundation was still intact, and my face still looked great. I did sweat, as it’s VERY hot and humid there in July, 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. Schedule an online consult with me here.)
- 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 Skin Therapy.
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.
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! I haven’t had this issue since I switched, so that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
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 payoff, a little goes a very long way.
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!

All the best, always.
