I’ve written a whole piece on eyebrows and then Shrinkle went and shaved hers off. I just hadn’t gotten around to posting it and it’s going to take a little longer to be posted because Doe Deere is at it again.
Just after Shrinkle shaved hers off, looking super cute as she always does, Doe posts a few times about how important eyebrows are. The sly digs at the people she sees as the enemy, that are so obvious if you know what’s going on are just getting old. They’re making her look like the ‘hater’ she like to call anyone who dares to disagree with her.
So that’s more of an opinion, lets move onto some misinformation Lime Crime has been spreading.
Lime crime promoted Black Velvet as ‘The only black lipstick that is touch, kiss and smudgeproof’. Not only is that blatantly untrue, I own it and it’s certainly none of those things, it’s not the only long stay matt black lipstick on the market. A person commented about the Zombie Cosmetics version. Surprisingly the comment is still there, Lime Crime isn’t censoring as much as they used to.
I can’t tell you if the Zombie Cosmetics lip velvet is any good because I don’t own it I can tell you there is a Black Velvet from Topshop called Raven and it’s miles better than Black Velvet.
So Lime Crime lied about it being the only version on the market. Not a shocker. True, they might not have known about the Zombie Cosmetics version but I really doubt it given the circles they move in and the fact it’s been mentioned more than once on their pages before.
Finally another thing that dogs Lime Crime. The fact the colour of their products seem to change with each batch and from picture to picture. Here’s Doe herself wearing Suedeberry. Yes Suedeberry, that matt coral red…..
Now it’s quite possible the colour discrepancy could be down to a filter but that would mean Doe would have to admit to using filters. The excuse used is it looks different on different people. Of course it’s doing to look slightly different but not that much. Suedeberry is an orange based red, that’s not orange toned at all. Even people with the same skin tone as her are mentioning in the comments how theirs look nothing like that.
It’s more likely that she’s made a mistake on the colour she’s wearing. Before you say ‘but she couldn’t, she owns the company!!’ It’s happened before.
This and all the other things in my eyes makes Lime Crime untrustworthy and not a company I will ever support.
Most microfibre face cloths have a softer side as well. It’s not a new unusual thing and it’s certainly not worth the price as far as I’m concerned. However if you like yours, I am perfectly happy for you. I just don’t think it’s worth it when you can find the exact same item for less than 20% of the price of a Makeup Eraser.
Just recently I’ve seen two adverts for face cloths both for the same product as it turns out, something called the Makeup Eraser. These were just being sold by different people.
Now they sound fabulous! You don’t need soap or cleanser. You no longer need eye make up remover or to use an exfoliator. They’re reusable, once it’s dirty just put it in with your normal wash.
Here’s the thing though, it’s just a microfibre face cloth. They want to charge you $19.97 for one cloth. That’s equivalent to £12 in the UK. Yes £12 for one cloth. You can pick these as five packs for less than £10. That’s a huge mark up because they’re selling it as a beauty product!
I’ve done a little research and you can get stung in the UK when looking for microfibre face cloths. I’ve seen them on sale for £10 here as well. As usual with any wonder product do some research. These can be found cheaply and they are simply fabulous.
EDIT: As another tumblr user said, the Magic Eraser comes with two sides, one of which is softer. This however is something all the microfibre face cloths I own already have.
I am going to state here, if you want to spend the extra money on a certain colour or because you like the brand, I am not here to stop you. I just don’t think it’s value for money and I wanted you to know what you’re buying.
