Imagine a rich, purple-violet lipstick, ladies. Meow! That’s so sexy and naughty and aptly called Scandal by the makeup brand Lime Crime.


Doe Deere’s independent cosmetics company has added yet another glamorous shade to its famous Velvetines lipstick line. We can just see Olivia Pope wearing the intense plum matte shade on ABC’s hit drama by the same name.


The beauty of Lime Crime lies in its bold, nervy color palettes, strong pigments and quality makeup. Their Velvetines liquid matte lipsticks feature incredible color and a matte finish that won’t budge. You can make out in this lipstick, and no one would be the wiser.


Purple-hued lipsticks are so hot this year, because they have the appearance of power and drama rolled into one.


CEO and founder Doe Deere describes her latest creation in a press release:


“Scandal is for girls who like a touch of punk-rock edge & have that don’t-care attitude. Pair it with bold black liner & get ready to stir up some controversy.”


Doe Deere has created a makeup brand that stands out among the rest, giving young women and men the freedom of self-expression. Lime Crime lets the wearer define their own beauty standards in cosmetics that are fearless, modern and on the cutting edge.


Her lipsticks feature color palettes found nowhere else on the market. She also launches amazing embellishments like Diamond Crushers, the iridescent lip toppers that add an extra layer of sensuality.


Doe Deere believes that makeup should challenge, empower and allow you to sparkle both inside and out.


Her vegan and cruelty-free makeup company is based in L.A. and popular across social media sites. Doe Deere is a branding expert in e-commerce, where her Lime Crime makeup has soared in popularity.


Lime Crime’s Instagram page displays more than 2.7 million followers and counting and happens to be one of the most colorful pages out there. Makeup-obsessed fans love sending selfies to Lime Crime adorned creatively in the cosmetics. Doe Deere enjoys interacting with her community of global Lime Crime fans.

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a stick of Chapstick with me, the little tube went everywhere I went, including some places I would never go, bottom of the washer machine I’m looking at you. I thought nothing could replace my Chapstick, that is until I found a little red ball that looked more like a cute toy egg than lip balm. Up until that point, lip balm was a generic beauty item, something that I needed but really didn’t express anything beyond doing its job. Then I took that little red ball home and started carrying it everywhere I went. EOS soon became my go to choice for lip balm, the cute little colors and shape mixed with flavors that actually were appealing made it so much more than a lip balm.

That’s why I was not a bit surprised to find on my Facebook news feed about Fast Company, one of my favorite online publications for start up news, had published a piece about my favorite lip balm company. Though I had used the product for years, I never really put much thought into how it came into existence, it just showed up one day and continued to show up everywhere.

The story behind the little upstart lip balm company that would quickly displace the king at the top of the hill was quite an interesting read as well. Beyond giving me better insight into what it takes to run a new company when faced with a major competitor that has all but cornered the market entirely, the piece provided me with a glimpse into the company behind one of my favorite products and something I literally carry on my person everywhere I go. EOS products are available on eBay and Amazon online. Try it for yourself!

Developed by Los Angeles stylist Chaz Dean, Wen cleansing conditioner proposes to change the way that consumers care for their hair. The five-in-one product is designed to replace not only your traditional shampoo and conditioner but also to act as a deep-conditioner, leave-in treatment, and detangler.

Sold exclusively online on Amazon, there are many unique features of this product. It is made without sulfates which can strip your hair of moisture, leaving it dry and damaged. The trade-off is that the product does not lather, which can be disconcerting to new users. Based on the instructions provided on the bottle, the minimum amount recommended per use is 10-16 pumps for short hair, 16-24 pumps for medium-length, and 24-32 pumps for long hair. To put this in perspective, a typical shampoo would require one to two pumps to properly cleanse medium-length hair. Users will apply the product to the roots, pull it through to the ends, and then rinse thoroughly after soaking for several minutes.

Bustle beauty blogger Emily McClure tried Wen cleansing conditioner on her fine hair and reported mixed results. Upon first use, it was immediately noticed that that there was less hair-loss during the washing process. After styling, hair is noticeably shiny, bouncy, and feels clean. Unfortunately, about 24-hours after use the roots become greasy and hair starts to looks stringy. After five days of use, the results continued to be the same. Overall, it was determined that this is a good product for those willing to put the effort into washing and styling on a daily basis. For those who prefer to shower the night before or skip a day between washing, you may wish to keep looking for your miracle product.
