I’ve only just become aware of limecrime and was thinking about buying some of their lipsticks. Can I ask why you hate them? I haven’t researched them much. :(

http://powderdoom.tumblr.com/tagged/limecrime this tag has a lot of links to posts that explain the shady business. also you can literally type “lime crime” into google and it will suggest the word “controversy” for you.

the lipstick formula itself isn’t going to like, burn your lips with acidic ingredients or anything, it’s just that the brand is too popular for an independent company that has been run by a control-freak owner. i try not to support those whom i don’t like, and i definitely don’t like a makeup brand that threatens bloggers who write mediocre reviews, has a CEO that doesn’t know the basics of color mixing, etc etc etc

If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try?
I’ve always wanted to work in film or television. I would love to try working as a director or cinematographer, more-so the latter because I like techy things and camera junk.

What’s something you wish everyone knew about you?
Oh! I don’t know, actually. I like to think I’m a pretty open book so what you see is what you get. Maybe that I’m not actually as cranky as everyone seems to think I am (I only am sometimes! I promise)

How would you explain your basic life philosophy?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Really, it might be a bit cliché but it’s so true. I believe fully and totally in you get what you give. While I may not practice it all the time, I do believe in it.

What scares you the most and why?
Losing people I care about. Cliché again, I know, but I really hate the thought of people I care about walking out of my life.

What’s the strangest talent you have?
idk. I can wiggle my ears?

Who or what inspires you and why?
People who are motivated, self-sufficient, creative and confident. They embody the person I want to be and I admire people who can just be themselves and have the drive to do what they love.

What is a saying you say a lot?
I use a lot of verbal fillers so if we’re going based on things I say a lot are: like, um, uh, I don’t know, what, yeah. I also swear like a sailor (bad habit, I should stop that!) but saying wise I’m not too sure. Probably something along the lines of “what the fuck!?”

Would you kill an innocent person if you thought it might mean saving a dozen other people?
No. Definitely not. Thinking and knowing are two very separate things and I’m not in the position to judge who lives and who dies. I’m not sure who is in that position, but definitely not me.

You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What is that power?
 Shape shifting fo sho! I’ve thought about this more than a regular person should, probably. I know without a doubt in my mind that I would choose shape shifting. It’s badass and super convenient.

One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren’t really doing anything, they’re just standing around your bed. What do you do?
Absolutely nothing. Lay in bed and hope that they go away and if they continued to stand there I would probably try to make some sort of slick escape and ultimately trip over my own feet. True story.

If the whole world were listening to you right now, what would you say?
A sad reality is that I would probably say something really stupid like “Sup?” and then nothing at all because I have nothing cool or witty or inspirational to say. I’d just be way too terrified to say anything at all, probably. Even the thought of it makes me anxious!


And now for my questions! (stealing some questions I was asked because I actually really like them)

  1. What’s one thing you could never live without?
  2. Who or what inspires you and why?
  3. What books have you read lately that you enjoyed?
  4. What mistakes have you made in 2012?
  5. What’s the strangest thing that has ever happened to you?
  6. If you could make any character real, who would it be?
  7. Your favourite dinosaur?
  8. Do you have any weird phobias?
  9. What is a phrase you say a lot?
  10. What is something that you love about yourself?
  11. What is something that you’re hoping to happen in 2013?
