Alima Pure’s Black Tie Gala + Giveaway

I am ecstatic  to kick off Goddess Huntress’s Fifteen Days O’ Giving with Alima Pure!  

One of the things I love about Alima Pure is their limited edition releases.  This time they pull out all the fancy stops with their Black Tie Gala Sets for the 2012 holiday season!  A perfect stocking stuffer or gift to thyself, I must say.

I had the pleasure of playing with both Black Tie Gala Sets for face and eyes last month and I absolutely love them.  The eye set includes four limited edition eyeshadows: Bijou (a shimmering peach/rose gold), Ballgown (a shimmering sage green), Minaudière (a shimmering copper), and Stilettos (a shimmering grape).  The face set includes limited edition rosy blush named Red Carpet, a shimmer powder named Chandelier, and a black eggplant shimmering eyeliner named Tuxedo.

The names just want to make you dress up, right?  Even if you don’t have anywhere to go, these gorgeously elegant metallics will have you slipping into your hot party dress.

The best part is that one lucky GH reader will be slipping into both Black Tie Gala Sets this holiday season!  GH and Alima Pure are going to get you all gussied up.

  1. My sparkly gold stilettos! I feel like I can rule the night when I step out in those paired with a LBD. It’s a nocturnal twist on the goddess theme, I guess :)

  2. I love a lot of the items in my closet but one of my favorites has to be a beige peplum dress with an open back that’s layered with black lace. Yup. It’s a favorite.

  3. My red velvet, Vivienne Westwood shoes… They were a birthday present from my boyfriend on my 19th birthday and they are just beautiful. Not only do they make my feel wonderful, each time I wear them, they remind me just how loved I am… These will forever be my favourite.

  4. My favorite green sweater- cozy and stylish to make me feel like a goddess!

  5. A dark teal Anthropologie dress – it’s casual enough for the office, but can be dressed up for a night out. It has interesting ruching that gives it a very Grecian/goddess vibe.

  6. My favorite item is definitely my Coach purse. I don’t go anywhere without it and it goes with every outfit! Talk about perfect!

  7. My new, neon coral sweater. I’m glowing. :)

  8. I love my cobalt blue sweater, it looks great with my pale skin and dark hair!

  9. I would have to say it is this beautiful red rhinestone hair clip that is shaped like a giant flower. I only wear it on special occasions (like to weddings) but it is so sparkly and I absolutely love it!

  10. A summer dress that my mom found for me. It’s a little structured, but with a vintage 50s feel and makes me feel like a bombshell. Everyone should have something that makes them feel like a Vargas girl. =)

  11. my misandry sweatshirt all males must bow down to me i exact power over all

  12. My black wrap dress, with just a touch of red lipstick. Flattering and classic.

  13. Ooo my new favs are my skinny coral jeans -love the color so bright and fun plus my butt looks good :) and suede pumps

  14. I have a pair of red heels (Seychelles) that elevate anything I put on.

  15. My vintage green and gold dress!

  16. That is hard! But I think my all time favorite would be my 4″ high lime green stilettos that have a strap that wrap around the ankle. (Yes, I can walk just fine in them and without looking like I’m on stilts :) ) They work for every special event! Weddings, baby showers, graduations, a girls day out, dancing, a special night out, etc. Though the best is with black chiffon, so stunning!

  17. Dangly earrings were only allowed on special occasions when I was a little girl & I always break out a long, cool pair when I really dress up. I’m typically a studs girl but bring the chandelier earrings out for the holidays & pair them with some amazing eyeshadow to bring all that shimmer together!

  18. A steel gray-blue maxi dress w/ gathering at the bust & straps, very greco-roman in design – I feel very goddess-y in it :)

  19. A pair of black booties from Paris and an old plaid shirt my mom used to paint in. Totally different but both have a special place in my heart!

  20. I have a pair of black velvet cage heels. I absolutely love them!

  21. Mmm definitely my old prom dress. I’ve only worn in a couple times since but every time I do I feel magnificent. To be in high school again…

  22. My LBD. It just hugs me and makes me feel so classy and comfortable. I also love the fact that I could just freely dance in it.

  23. After this weekend – my beautiful green lace dress. It was my bridesmaid’s dress for my best friend’s wedding yesterday and whenever I wear it I know I’ll absolutely glow with the happy memories I’ll be thinking of!
