Freedom Fighter who Inspires Many Souls Around the Globe

Yeonmi Park is a 21 year old lady who defected from North Korea and is fast becoming a common face and voice of the people of North Korea and Asia at large who are oppressed, as well as becoming a living inspiration for freedom fighters all around the world. She defected and to the surprise of many, her country with the fifth largest army in the world, nuclear power and other ongoing research on military weapons decided to denounce her on the 31st of January 2015. A website that is run and managed by Kim Jong Um’s government posted an 18-minute long video with a title ‘The Human Rights Propaganda Puppet, Yeonmi Park’ to deliver the information to her and the country. This was the latest lame attacked that was aimed at putting a zip on the charismatic and outspoken critic of the world’s most secretive and repressive regime Yeonmi. The country has seen attackers (activists and critics) go through suffering after unlawful charges being imposed on them with most of them eventually becoming defectors. Becoming a defector is always a death wish but Yeonmi is one lady who is not intimidated or threatened easily, she is the North Korean Iron Lady.

Yeonmi released a book on Amazon, she was born in Heysan to a middle level civil servants in a society that devoted to worshipping the nation’s leader and show absolute hatred to anyone who shows disagreements with North Korean regime. A society that teaches you what to feel think and say and an obscene teaching of never put your trust in anyone. She got so bitter and angered at age of nine when she witnessed in disbelief her best friend’s mother executed by a firing squad for an offence that was not worth taking one’s life. Yeonmi grew up in this environment until she tasted what freedom feels like after smuggling and watching a film Titanic, which gave her a totally different view and life in another world. She leant that people in the other world were willing to die for love, as well as for state.

The journey of becoming a freedom fighter has not been easy for Yeonmi. She once gave an emotional confession amid tears in an interview with a forum named Women in The World Summit that Kim Jong um does not like her at all. He viewed her as a traitor for exposing what the dictatorial North Korean government wants children to be taught in schools. She said that the systems aim is to corrupt the young minds that the outside world is dangerous, impure and disgusting to live in. North Korea is the best place to be. Once, when she was 13 years and after fleeing her country with her mother into China, she went through her worst experience when a man wanted to rape her. Instead, her mother offered herself, and she watched the man do such a barbaric act on her mother. She escaped with her mother to Mongolia, and this was the beginning of a journey that she swore she will fight until death. She has gone ahead to write books and expose reality of Kim Jong Um’s brutal regime.

Unicorn Lipstick and Zodiac Glitter: It’s a Doe Deere World

Businesswoman Doe Deere has created an amazing beauty world of fantasy and fairy tale- where Unicorn Lipstick and Zodiac Glitter are of the norm. Young women around the world are discovering a new and modern way to wear makeup. Instead of cosmetics quietly conforming to traditional ideals, Lime Crime makeup breaks all the rules!

Doe Deere developed her own line of cosmetics after rarely being able to hunt down a makeup palette that was wild and free. Doe was active in fashion design and in the music world with a band of her own; creative self-expression was essential for Doe, as it often is for young women everywhere.

In October 2008, LimeCrimeMakeup.com debuted, and the slogan was a winner:
“So bright, it’s illegal.”

So, that is how Lime Crime was born, out of sheer necessity and Doe Deere has never looked back.

Lime Crime makeup is crazy colorful! If someone really wants a red smoky eye, then her wish is granted; there is a shade for that. If someone is dying to put on banana yellow lipstick, she certainly can. That’s what Doe Deere’s Lime Crime company does so well- break the rules and do it with style and sass.

Some young women find Lime Crime makeup to be quite empowering; in other words, the bold and pigmented colors allow girls to experiment with makeup and try on pretty powerful colors. It’s a cool way to gain self-confidence and a better self-esteem.

Buying Doe Deere’s makeup online is quick and easy at LimeCrime.com. She is highlighting two, new lipsticks with an autumnal vibe called Squash and Jinx, and OMG, are they sexy! Squash is glow-stick orange, while Jinx is a witch-berry purple. Both unforgettable shades are from Lime Crime’s Velvetines Lipstick collection.

Doe Deere describes her Velvetines line as “The original liquid-to-matte lipstick,” and she ain’t kidding! This formula stays put for hours and hours. The colors are so rich and modern.

Plus, all of Lime Crime’s cosmetics are cruelty-free and vegan, and we all like that! The popular company offers edgy choices in their lipsticks, eye makeup and nail polishes. The Zodiac Glitter eye shadows are especially cool and unique. There are 12, of course, one for each birthday and especially fun to mix and match.

Lime Crime makeup has taken the world of cosmetics by storm. The red lip used to be a daring statement-making beauty concept; today, a squash-colored lip is the true beauty changer, thanks to the creative genius of Doe Deere.

Another fact that is often missed about the company and the woman is the charities that benefit. Doe Deere and Lime Crime believe in giving back to women, children and animals. A few recipients include, Girls Inc., Red Cross, Adopt NY and Sanctuary for Families.

Doe Deere has a big heart for all living things on the planet.

WHAT IS LIME CRIME ABOUT?
This company was founded by Miss Deere in 2008 when she decided to find the makeup that would keep pace with her vivid and bright imagination, because this is what Lime Crime is all about. It all started with the fact that a model, blogger and makeup artist who herself called ‘Unicorn Queen’ could not find the right cosmetics that would be bright and unique at the same time. Her focus was on creating the most pigmented and vivid cosmetics that will be used not just for covering imperfections but also for expressing women’s personality. Unlike many other companies that are based on the same things, the Lime Crime’s team of professionals did their best to create something completely different, and they, together with their founder, managed to create a fantasy through beauty. How is this possible? Well, one should just take a look at its wild and non-traditional colors which are included in your eye shadow palettes, lipsticks collection and the quirky set of nail polish.

This is the line that stands for individuality and imagination, and this can be best seen in her eye shadow palettes.
LIME CRIME COLLECTION OF LIPSTICS AND EYE SHADOWS
Lime Crime lip collection includes unusual names, such as: Cosmopop, D’Lilac, Airborne Unicorn, My Beautiful Rocket, Great Pink Planet, etc. Since they are quite pigmented, one does not have to apply them several times in order to get the right color.
