There were some who never thought she would make her cosmetics line a success, because Lime Crime was very different from the giant makeup companies which had swallowed up the competition.
Lime Crime was like “The Little Engine That Could,” however, slowly and quietly determined to make its way and be noticed. Doe Deere began her company in 2008, and today, Lime Crime is everywhere, exceeding two million followers on Instagram. Fans love putting on her brightly colored cosmetics and showing off their concept of beauty all over social media.
Blue lipstick and eye shadow the color of a bruised nectarine are part of Doe Deere’s signature brand. Just a few years ago, few would have the confidence and attitude to wear red shadow or glitter, but now Lime Crime is all over the red carpet with big stars like Garcelle Beauvais and Katy Perry adorned in Lime Crime makeup.
Doe Deere has told her story before, about a young girl growing up in Russia and later moving to the big city of New York with her family. She took along her fascination with unicorns and bright colors and a creative imagination. Doe Deere dabbled in fashion and even as a singer in the band Sky Salt, before settling into the cut-throat world of making makeup. New York City had trained her well to be tough, trendy and internet savvy as she developed her amazing online Lime Crime brand.
According to Doe Deere, Lime Crime makeup stands for freedom, as her website About Me page clearly explains:
“I make makeup for girls and boys like me, who express themselves unapologetically like me. Lime Crime is freedom to be you!”
Doe Deere’s Velvetines lipsticks have gained a cult following. She touts them as the original liquid-to-matte lipsticks, and now other makeup companies are copying her popular trend. The Velvetines line-up is simply gorgeous, and the colors are so stunning, and best of all, when her lipsticks set, nothing will remove them, until they’re washed off at night. Girls and boys can make out wearing Velvetines lipsticks, because their kisses are safe with Lime Crime.
Doe Deere keeps introducing new makeup for her huge, global fan base, and they respond with tons of selfies on Lime Crime’s Instagram. Doe Deere is proud that Lime Crime is exploding on Instagram and other social media.
Stay tuned, because Doe Deere has only just begun.
Many daytime drama fans will recognize Crystal Hunt for her former roles in dramas such as Guiding Light, and One Life to Live. She was most famous for her character Lizzy Spualding in Guiding Light.
Her character was such a massive success on Hunt’s part that it earned her an Emmy Nomination. After taking the daytime drama world by storm, Hunt has focused her creative energies most intensely behind the cameras as a film producer. She is currently undertaking the task of Executive Film Producer on the film Talbot County.
However, her producing career has not entirely taken over her shining stardom as she is currently featured POP TV’s Queens of Drama where former daytime drama actresses work together to create a new television show with the hopes of earning a pilot episode.
Besides participating in a major reality television show, Crystal Hunt recently experienced her first major motion picture premier for her appearance in Magic Mike XXL.
Magic Mike XXL may have been her biggest movie, but Hunt appeared in two other films even before her wonderful daytime drama career.
She first appeared in 2005’s Derby Stallion, and then in 2007’s Sidney White as character “Dinky”. The movie may not have been a blockbuster at the box office, but it was certainly a catalyst for an overwhelmingly successful career.
It was after this role, she landed her wildly successful career in daytime dramas which lead to her ultimate success in production, her role in Magic Mike XXL, and her new spot in POP TV’S Queens of Drama. Highlights of which can be seen on YouTube. For fans, Crystal has a Facebook page, where she updates, and even communicates with dedicated followers.
