Looking for makeup different than the everyday girl look that most people were wearing at the time, singer Doe Deere decided to create Lime Crime. Lime Crime is a vegan and cruelty-free makeup company that focuses on creating a fantasy world through make-up. This can be noticed through the unicorns, first shining their sparkle on the lipstick line one year after the company started during Halloween of 2008. Even better, the products are made here in the United States.
Deere grew up in Russia with dreams of becoming a mermaid. Movies such as the Labyrinth, the Dark Crystal, and the Last Unicorn impacted her personal style and passions. That childhood dream only changed slightly as she grew up- she decided to move to New York and sing in a band, keeping her wild hair colors and beautiful makeup style. Like most women, she is into fashion and photography as well. This helps her come up with creative expression for her makeup.
Naturally, this didn’t come easy though. Finding a company who believed in her vision and were also excellent at what they did. And despite the two point six million followers at @limecrimemakeup the company has on Instagram.
Here recently that fabulous line of lipsticks added a new color to their line up- Scandal Velvetines, a purple-violent liquid to matte lipstick. The look is perfect for those carefree souls, and looks fabulous paired with black eyeliner. Getting the best look means adding lip balm to the lips, letting it sit fifteen minutes and then blotting off excess oil and applying the lipstick that shines until bedtime, when a simple makeup remover takes it off. A beautiful color, an animal-friendly company and an owner who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out sounds too good to be true, kind of like unicorns. It must be Lime Crime.
