from @riplimegrime - RP FOR THE NEW FOLLOWS
from @ssssamanthaa - I've been debating for a week or so whether or not to speak out about this, and here we are. In short, I will no longer be promoting/using @limecrimemakeup products or supporting the company in any way.
Along with many other artists, I truly feel this is what's right. @roseshock definitely said it well - regardless of truly enjoying Limecrime products, I am often wary to post about them, and makeup shouldn't be something you feel guilty about. I avoided getting involved in this controversy for a long time, but in light of recent events regarding a large scale credit card fraud, I began to realize something. I have been recommending these products. I could have been the one to push you to pick up that velvetine that consequently compromised your card. And that's simply not okay.
Credit card fraud happens all the time. It's not NECESSARILY the company's fault (in most cases). But how the company deals with it moving forward is most important. From being wildly unapologetic and having a "we did nothing" attitude, to deleting comments and blocking pages for speaking out and the owner calling customers assholes - it's simply not appropriate.
I expect I will face some backlash from this but regardless, I urge you all to do the same. Give your hard earned money to companies that deserve it and treat you with respect. Let's all feel good about makeup again.
