Lime Crime Velvetines became part of this popular makeup line in 2012, about six years after the commencement of this company’s start-up in 2008. Doe Deere, the founder launched her product as a result of shopping for lipsticks that were bright and hued to match her outfits in color and glam. Since its inception, Lime Crime has been Vegan and anti-animal cruelty. The lipsticks are ultra-vibrant, and made to withstand eating, drinking, even kissing action to last and last. It should be mentioned that Deere aspired to be a unique entrepreneur in the beauty business, and works hard to inspire other like-minded women to do the same.
