Living the LimeLife – The Right Way to do Network Marketing

39245813_1831719516881124_6505004063174688768_nI’d like to address some common themes that come up in conversations when people ask me about the LimeLife business. My hope is to clarify and bring understanding where it is new to Canada. There seem to be a lot of misconceptions and unknowns, which I would like to dispel.

First of all, you need to know that LimeLife is unlike any other direct sales company. I’ve had experience with many, and I’ve seen this firsthand. We do NOT allow “kit-napping”, we do NOT offer routine sales or discounted bundles, and we do NOT frequently roll out limited edition items (only for holiday collections). We don’t offer sales constantly in hopes you’ll buy because of the sale this month and fall in love, just like we don’t want you buying it thinking it’s not setting you back much if you don’t like it. We are so confident you’ll love it because it is the best of the best in this industry EVERY month. We want you buying our products because you see their value, you see the affordable pricing for that value, and when you try it you’ll be wondering why you waited so long to get it. That said, we do have a 30 day return and exchange policy… it’s just not used much…

You may not realize it, but offering sales constantly does you a disservice. You either wait for a sale and run out of products you need, or maybe you see a sale and break the bank trying to stock up. We prefer to keep our prices as low as possible every day despite the top notch quality that they bring to make it more affordable for everyone. We do this while keeping prices comparable to other retail brands in our industry, but with superior quality in many cases.

This isn’t a new direct sales business trying to build a brand. This is a professional cosmetics and skincare company that has existed for decades in the professional beauty industry, that is only now being brought to the general consumer through the direct sales model. The proof is in the pudding guys, just look at the beautiful women that have allowed me to give them makeovers to display the power of these products.

In addition, we do NOT allow anything that can negatively impact the LimeLife (and by extension, Alcone) brand. This includes no cold messaging to prospect, no adding people to Facebook groups without their consent, no harassing or begging people for sales, etc. Unlike many companies, these rules are routinely enforced. That said, we have such an abundance of phenomenal training at our fingertips (literally something new Every. Single. Day) that it rarely gets to the point of needing to be enforced.

We’re taught the right way to do business in this industry, and that is critical today with the amount of people totally shut off to network marketing because of all the people out there doing the wrong things. I say that with love and without judgment, because I used to be them. Without proper training, we can all be them. I’m so grateful for everything I’ve had the opportunity to learn since I joined this company because it has truly helped me grow as a business woman, and as a person.

This company and the culture is truly spectacular, and we have a better way. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please reach out to me. I would love to chat with you, with zero expectations, and simply answer any questions that you may have. Let’s see if living the LimeLife could be what you’ve been searching for <3

Love FREE SHIPPING and Liquid Lipstick?

Where are my liquid lipstick lovers?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These dropped in Canada this week, and we are so unbelievably excited! There is different lighting in the photos, but the first picture is the most true to shade.

I have two of these already, and they are truly amazing. Reasons why I (and you will) love these enduring lip colours:

1) they are called ENDURING lip colours for a reason… they have awesome staying power 
2) the colours are bomb
3) they are so smooth and glide on easily
4) they dry fairly quickly, resulting in less transfer
5) they literally smell like dessert… no joke
6) we have a 30 day return/exchange policy so you can try completely risk free!
7) leaping bunny certified (cruelty-free)
8) Gluten/paraben/nut/corn/soy free
9) Vegan

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the formula was recently IMPROVED. It is now formulated to last even longer, provide deeper colour deposit, and have less transfer! Take a look below at a screenshot I grabbed from a LIVE video our co-founder did showing off the power of the new formula. This transfer test honestly speaks for itself… the new formula is amazeballs and I am dying to get my hands on it!

 

To sweeten the pot, we have FREE SHIPPING on orders of ANY size through to the end of August. This means you can snag yourself an enduring lip colour by itself without shipping charges. If you’ve had your eye on any other items, this is also your opportunity to tack that on with your ELC to save on the shipping for the entire order!

Are the Karity Palettes as Great as they are Advertised to be?

Alright guys, time for an honest review. A while back I did swatches of my new Karity palettes (frost and matte) and was so excited about trying them out. There was a lot of hype about the brand, and I kept seeing ads about them all over Facebook. I finally bit the bullet and got some, really wanting to love them. I was holding off doing a post about it until I gave them a fair shot. The time has come 

1) These shadows have a lot of fallout, even when you tap the excess off the brush. I almost always have to go back in with a little foundation under the eyes to cover up the shadow fallout.

2) If you’re like me and like vibrant colours, you probably wet your brush to get the maximum colour output. Well, I do that with my primer spray. It truly does give great colour output doing it that way, but it makes the shadows really difficult to blend. I think that might also contributed to the creasing that I tend to experience throughout the day.

3) They do not have good staying power. This is evident in my before and after picture. It looks really nice when you first apply, but I noticed halfway through the day at work that the shadows had started to fade and crease. I use an awesome setting spray and I never have this issue with my limelight shadows, so I know it’s not my finishing spray that is the problem lol. You can see how the rest of my makeup still looks normal (minus lipstick because I took that off and switched to lip balm when I got home) whereas the eyeshadow is worn off, creased, and looks terrible.

 

As much as I wanted to love these palettes because they have an awesome range of colours, I just can’t. The variety is there, but the quality is definitely lacking a bit. Some of the colours stay better than others, like the corals seemed to work better than these blues. Either way, I simply cannot recommend something that I myself have been having difficulty with.

For these reasons, I do not recommend these palettes.

5 Minute Makeup

32699928_1699928060060271_7128104784468377600_nThis photo shows me with the bare minimum of makeup on. Those who know me, know I love to do full glam and have cool eye shadow looks and vibrant lip colours. That doesn’t mean I can’t do more natural! This is me with just foundation, a nude lipstick, brow liner, mascara, and a light amount of brown shadow used as a liner.

Honestly my favourite thing about LimeLife is the confidence that it brings to my life, and the lives of those I am able to touch with this social selling business model.

The high pigmentation enables me to do lighter coverage with my foundation AND stop coating my face with concealer.
My skin has improved leaps and bounds, making me far more comfortable going LIVE for everyone to see without makeup.
 I no longer feel the need to go full glam to feel beautiful, and feel totally comfortable with the basics like what you see here.

Best of all, the feedback that I get from other people who have purchased our products and fallen in love like I have fills me up with so much joy 🙌

We are all beautiful, and we ALL deserve to feel that way ❤️

You can catch me LIVE on Facebook showing my “5 Minute Makeup” routine. The video exceeds 5 minutes because I talk a lot, but it only takes 5 minutes when replicated offline.

LimeLife is Different

32900255_1702317756487968_7242456854205300736_nThe LL culture is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced, and it just makes me really happy. This feels like home to me, and I needed to express some of the reasons why.

The woman that pretty much started with the company in its infancy and is now at the VERY top of the comp plan went live last night. One of the things that she shared was that she actually got into LimeLife for the community, not the money. She shared that she suffered from postpartum depression twice back to back with her kids, and she had isolated herself and become a very lonely person. She was very emotional when sharing all of this because now here she is, surrounded by thousands of other women with the same values. The relationships that you make and the community that this is truly is nothing short of amazing, and I am so thankful for that!

She was also giving updates after the executive retreat in Napa, and she started crying again while talking about the experience. Sure, it was a celebration of their success; but it was so much more than that. It was about the rest of us, and what they can do to make this company and this message go further and be better. They are starting chapters in every state to meet up once a month or once a quarter to go out and do good deeds. Not to try to earn more sales, recruit, etcetera; but because doing good and making others feel good is what this brand is about.

If that is what you’re all about too, why aren’t you doing this with me?

Let’s do this together <3
