Lime Crime Cancels Pro Discount

Unfortunately Lime Crime has recently cancelled their Pro Discount, much to many peoples dismay and outrage.  You can still get a discount through naimies (information under the discounts tab in the same post as the old lime crime discount info.)

I for one have no idea why they would cancel their pro discount, as their products are all ready extremely expensive, and from what I have seen have so many dupes, and competitors that are cheaper and have similar or better results.  I know I don’t want to pay 17$ for a lipgloss, when I can buy a similar one from revlon for half the price, plus no shipping costs.

I have been reading quite a bit about the drama surrounding the brand, and have really made up my mind after reading about how they responded to and treated temptalia, that I am going to source other options and avoid lime crime all together.

I usually use OCC Liptars for bright colors anyway, as they are pretty much my HG lip product.

But if you are looking for another product similar to lime crime in that they have bright colors in lipstick form, I have heard good things about Ka’Oir, though I haven’t tried those lipstick yet.

They can be found at: http://www.kaoir.com/ if you want to take a look

LIP TAR SALE!

If you are interested in trying some lip tars now is the time! OCC has created their coveted gift packs once again, you can get 6 liptars for only 50 bucks, which is a total steal! Buy them HERE

The first 6 pack is the Primary Mix Masters which has:

STALKER, TRAFFIC, RX, TARRED, DANGEROUS, FEATHERED

The second 6 pack is the  Beyond Pastel which has:

The last 6 pack is Not-Of-This-Earth-Tones which has:

Which pack is your favorite?  I can’t decide, and think I will get all of them! Luckily I only have 1 color out of all 18 colors offered. Let me know if any of you get the packs and how you like your new lip tars!

Another OCC/Lip tar swatch post, and review can be expected shortly this time I will focus on the customer service, shipping etc from OCC as I have never ordered directly from the site before!

Lime Crime and Naimies Pro Discounts

If you haven’t allready seen my extensive list of Pro Discounts, please go the sidebar and click the discounts category.  I have two more Pro Discounts to add to the list!

I have yet to put either into use but I thought I would share them with you considering they are pretty easy to get and I know they will come in handy in the next few weeks!

The first one which I am sure many of you all ready have is

LIME CRIME :

 I have linked you directly to their pro page.  Lime Crimes discount is one of the easier ones to get, all you need is your name, email, and website/online portfolio.  You must also include a message, I just talked about the kind of work I did, where I had been published etc.

The Lime Crime discount gives you 35% off discount to any/all working makeup artists, for all their products that you order off their website.  Pretty darn good considering their products are pretty nicely priced anyway!  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of their creamy opaque lipsticks, and magic dusts.

The other discount which I am even more excited about is

NAIMIE’S BEAUTY CENTER

Naimie’s Beauty Center is a store located in California, which carries various top quality brands of makeup such as MUFE, Nars, Ben Nye, Cover FX, Temptu etc.  Luckily for me and well everyone else who lives outside of Cali, they have an online store and you can call their store and place orders which they will then ship to you. The discounts are pretty amazing, as you can get pretty much anything you need.  For some of the products like the MUFE, and Nars you have to call the store to place your orders!

For this discount you must Provide a copy of your picture ID and at least three of the following: business card, tear sheet or editorial page with name credit, agency information, call sheet with your name listed as the hairstylist or makeup artist, a website that promotes your work, state license, and portfolio.

Which once again isn’t terribly hard, I did business card, tear sheet, and website.

Here is the discount breakdown!
