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.

Died and went to Lip Gloss Heaven

This month a truly amazing thing happened…. the LimeLife by Alcone lip glosses were successfully launched into Canada!! We have been waiting “patiently” since March 5th for these puppies to come to Canada so that we can get our grubby paws on them.

It finally happened. It is glorious.

Naturally, I felt compelled to do a little photo shoot to capture the beauty of these magical little lip glosses. It doesn’t do them justice at all, but you’ll get the idea.

“So Jessica, apart from how pretty they are, why should I buy these glosses?”

I’m so glad you asked!

  • These glosses smell like DESSERT!! I seriously just want to lick the wand when I am applying these glosses.
  • They go on super easily.
  • They are not at all sticky.
  • Last but not least, my favourite thing about these glosses is the high pigmentation.

32837217_1701345236585220_2885502425525911552_n

If you’ve tried our eyeshadows or our foundation, you will be familiar with the heavy pigment in our products. If this line is new to you, chances are you will be blown away by the pigment in these glosses – especially the darker shades. For example, check me out in this photograph. I am honestly BLOWN AWAY.

This is me sporting our signature lip gloss in “Joy”. It looks like I must have something underneath it, right? Well, I swear to you that I do not have a single thing on under that gloss. No lipstick, no liquid lipstick, no lip stain, no lip liner, zilch, nada, NOTHING. This is a testament to how pigmented these glosses truly are.

Catch the recording of me going LIVE on Facebook to swatch the four gloss shades that I got for free with my party rewards. Shades being swatched are Joy, Love, Peace, and Hope.

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

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup

29257658_1639607176092360_110750791198834688_n

Anyone that knows me, knows that I like to go all out for holidays. I tend to show up for work dressed for the occasion, and St. Patty’s Day was no exception! I got some laughs and some funny looks, but it was all in good fun.

All products used for this look – with the exception of the green shadows – were LimeLight by Alcone products. As for the green shimmery shadows, those were Mica Bella shadows. I used three different shades to create the eye look, and just one shade of the shadow to create that shimmery green lip color. The lips turned out like a metallic liquid lipstick, and I love how it ended up filling out the look!

How to recreate the look:

I always start by moisturizing and priming my face. I use Must Dew to moisturize, and First Base Primer to prep my face for makeup. Then I go in and apply my foundation, and concealer to highlight. I do my brows next, and clean up around the brows with concealer. Once that step is done, I’m ready to go in with my bronzer, blush, and translucent powder.

Once the face is good to go, I then move to the eyes. I applied all of my shadows with a little spritz of primer on my brushes to maximize the color impact. I used a lighter shade of green to apply it all over my lid and in the center of the lower lash line. Once most of the color was on the lid, I gently blended it upward a bit. Then you take the slightly darker green and apply that with a new brush to the outer corner of the eye, and blend inward about halfway across the lid.

29249344_1639607232759021_1184252230174244864_n

 

Again once most of the product is where you want it, blend upward slightly and in and around the crease. Next you take a really dark green using a fine crease brush and apply it basically in an outward V where your winged liner goes. Blend that inward a bit, and up and around the crease. You take that shade along the bottom lash line until it meets the other shade you applied earlier, and blend. Lastly, you can take a yellow to the inner corner of the eye and the beginning of the lower lash line. This last step is optional, but I liked the way it turned out. After you’re done all of these steps, you want to go back in and just make sure everything is well blended.

Once you are satisfied with the shadow look, it’s time for the stars of the show. You first go in with your liquid liner to line the lash line, and then do your wing. Next up is mascara, and I usually do two coats for more drama. If you feel the light green got overpowered on the lid, you can go back in on the inner corner of the lid with that light green shade.

PRO TIP: If you made a mistake with the liner, you can go in with your concealer to fix your line. You will want to use a good concealer brush for this so that you can be precise.

PRO TIP: If you accidentally got mascara on the shadow, leave it there for a minute and let it dry. Then take a brow brush or spoolie and gently brush over the spot of mascara. It will pull off the mascara without wrecking your makeup!

This metallic lip color was actually super simple to create. I basically just applied my nude lipstick to prime my lips and give the loose shadow something to cling to. Then I just went in with my middle green shadow color and applied it with a damp brush on top of the lipstick. I applied my finishing spray to finish out the look, and it did have pretty decent staying power. I had to reapply the shadow a bit in the afternoon after eating an apple, but that is to be expected when you have shadows on your lips and you eat something like that.

I just love the way this look turned out! If you decide to recreate it, come back and share your results! I’d love to see other approaches.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The Difference Between “Luxury Cosmetics” and Professional Cosmetics

I would like to start out by saying I honestly did love my old makeup. I had no idea that there was a problem until this week when I decided to slap a before and after together, and holy smokes… Mind. Blowing. This totally validates my decision to join the LimeLight family.

29216979_2050637638483775_3594829760657620992_n.jpgPicture 1: This is from about a month or so before I started using Limelight products. Note that my foundation was definitely too dark or had oxidized (I used the lightest shade available in the line), and note how big my pores look.  Go on, zoom in a little and you’ll really see it.

I used a primer always, yet still hated the end result in photos because I could see all the little bumps. I had stopped taking selfies as much since last August because I thought it was because of my new phone, which is a much smaller screen and therefore had a smaller camera. I didn’t notice anything I didn’t like in the mirror, so when I was seeing it in my phone, I assumed it HAD to be the phone…

Picture 2: This is WITHOUT a primer – just LimeLight foundation and a small amount of concealer in a few spots to highlight. I finally have a shade light enough for my skin, and my skin looks FLAWLESS – no more visible pore bumps. Putting these photos side by side blew my mind because it was only in that moment that I realized the problem hadn’t been my camera all along – the problem was my foundation.

ZERO editing done to both images (except for putting the pictures together and the text additions of course).

You guys…

THIS is the difference that professional products makes.

THIS is why I decided to join this company.

And this is why I can’t wait for you to be introduced to these amazing products.

If you haven’t already, please RSVP to my launch event! I, along with two other power-houses, will be going LIVE to demonstrate the application of these products. Andrea will be walking you through the importance of a great skincare routine, Nikki will be walking you through everything to do with your complexion, and I will be walking you through beautiful eye makeup for both day and night! 

I hope to see you there :)
