Fashion and cosmetics go hand-to-hand to some degree because cosmetics are an extension of fashion. Being able to enhance your appearance has its benefits, but all cosmetics aren’t created the same. There are good cosmetic brands and there are the not so good cosmetic brands. Some are expensive and others are frugal. This is one of the most diverse industries on planet earth and some of the biggest names in mainstream society can be found here. Revlon, Maybelline, Almay and Covergirl are just a few. On the other hand, the up-and-coming Lime Crime brand has taken over the limelight.

 

Lime Crime was founded by fashion designer Doe Deere. This Russian-born woman has single-handedly revolutionized the game for the better. No longer will consumers have to choose from the same bland colors because this brand is full of dynamic colorful blends. These blends come in amazing titles such as:

 

  • Black Velvet

 

  • Cement (gray)

 

  • Alien (neon Green)

 

  • Wicked (blood red)

 

  • Red Velvet

 

  • Pink Velvet

 

  • Pansy (vivid Purple)

 

  • Shroom

 

  • Suedeberry

 

  • Cshmere (dull pink)

 

  • Beet-It (deep berry pink)

 

  • And many others

 

 

Doe Deere has also implemented health strategies into the products because they’re vegan. In addition to that, the products are animal cruelty-free. This exclusive brand is high-quality, and it has captured the attention of the masses. Lime Crime’s Instagram account has over 3 million followers. Deere uses these platforms for promoting the products and for getting good feedback. Thanks to her solid education in marketing, this technique has paid-off in huge dividends. She has always seem to have had an entrepreneurial spirit. When she was only 13, she sold novelty products to her Russian friends. This entrepreneurial spirit has carried over into her adult life with succession. Lime Crime was birthed in 2008, and it has been getting stronger by the day. Its liquid-matte lipsticks are game changers in a sense because they glide on smooth, they are long-lasting, and they look fantastic. There has been many hours of brainstorming that has gone into each and every product. This includes eyeliner, lip gloss, lip topper, glitter, hair dye, eye-shadow palettes, loose pigments and nail polish. The options are nearly endless. Learn more:  https://www.crunchbase.com/person/doe-deere#/entity
