I urge you to read the threads elsewhere in this forum - she is indeed repacking pigments. There is plenty of evidence of that. After all, does her claim that TKB, one of the two major pigment suppliers to mineral makeup companies (the other being Costal Scents), who has been around since 1994, duplicated her colors (though they were selling the dupes before
the Lime Crime makeup line even came out) make any sense when they are selling them for more than 2448% cheaper
(Lime Crime is $85.71/oz, while TKB sells them for $3.50/oz, or $2.50/oz if you buy the largest bulk bag)?
Not to mention Xenia (I don't buy into this Doe junk, I've been following her way too long for that) has a history of causing drama as well as a history of copying other designers. For example, why would she threaten to sue Gothique for writing a review of her lipsticks in which she mentioned that the lipsticks stained her lips? Any other company would apologize and work on fixing it, not make written threats, much less complain that Gothique's retraction "wasn't good enough" and threaten Gothique into using an apology that she wrote instead.
Rosalie, please look at all
of the evidence before you pick sides.
xmrsvindieselx, I have yet to really hear any complaints about TKB. There are plenty of MMUs who blend their own colors, but do a little searching and you will find out what pigments are the Lime Crime matches.
