When you type ‘Lime Crime’ into google the first autocomplete is ‘lime crime controversy.’
Click that, and have a read through the links. It’s also worth keeping in mind that Doe Deere has falsified letters from lawyers and sent them to truth bloggers in order to have posts with truthful information about her and her company shut down. Some quick pointers [with sauce] though -
- Cultural appropriation [see here http://www.portraitofmai.com/2012/01/lime-crime-youre-doing-it-wrong.html]
- Stealing copyrighted images without any consent [see here http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lthyrjkoAN1qii3e9o1_1280.jpg and here http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0903/clairefaerie/lcstealingagan.jpg As well as many others]
- Repackaging products and selling as her own [http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com/2010/01/lime-crime-beneath-glitter.html Scroll down a little here]
- Claims to be a vegan line when many products are not vegan [see here http://ohdeardoedeere.tumblr.com/post/72544024924/im-aware-that-lime-crime-has-made-false-claims-in-the]
- She’s been caught using other brands’ products in her swatch photos. Repeatedly.
- And then photoshopping the said swatch photos. Her products rarely look like the swatches.
In response to people asking about the price of her products, she responded with this -
“"You guys need to quit coming after me. Because seriously, it was YOUR fault that you idiots were stupid enough to spend $16 for a gram of product. But how can I blame you? My products are second to none in quality. Beautiful, whimsical colors in designer packaging. If you’re too poor to buy my products, then go elsewhere and spend less and get a low quality product. You don’t deserve to use Lime Crime. I’m actually thinking of making the LC Shop account registration invite/friends only because I DON’T NEED YOUR MONEY. If you wanna spend your money on low quality, mass produced pigments from M.A.C, go right ahead. It’s no skin off my nose.I’ll still be making more cash than most of you imbeciles. That’s all I’m going to say. I’m not checking this post again. If you have anything else to say, too bad because I’m screening my comments, as I have no time for trolls. I have a LIFE."
And that’s just the controversy. Not even the fact that they’re just sup-par products.
PLEASE reblog this. Get it out there.
