I’m loving the off-beat lipstick color trend and am hoping it takes over. Doe Deere of Lime Crime Cosmetics really got it right!

Buying the real thing is clearly better, but if you don’t live near a Space.NK to try it on, don’t like ordering on-line, or just don’t have an extra $20 laying around — This is my tutorial.

What You’ll Need

  • Eyelid Primer (preferably e.l.f. since it’s only $1)
  • An eyeshadow color of your choice (I used a blue and a lime green from an e.l.f. eyeshadow palette)

DIY 8 Recreate Lime Crimes Off Beat Lipstick Colors For Less


  1. Apply eyelid primer to lips like you would a lip gloss
  2. Wait about 30 seconds for it to dry
  3. Choose a vibrant eyeshadow color
  4. Apply eyeshadow to lips as you would your eyes. Applying about 3 layers does the trick.

You just created your own off-beat lipstick color!

I know when I was in high school, all the money I made from working was my “whatever” money! I was able to spend it on clothes, shoes, haircuts, and of course MAKEUP. I became overly addicted to the expensive makeup brands such as M.A.C, Urban Decay, Benefit, Clinique and Stila. But when I went away for school and “grew up” I had to spend all my money on necessities such as rent, bills, and food. I had to find new makeup brands to love that gave me the looks I wanted for less. Some I like even more than the expensive designer versions!


I went from Clinique’s $22 liquid foundation to the $8 L’Oreal True Match liquid foundation!

I still use the waterproof retractable eyeliner from the Sephora Collection for $12 since it glides on nice and smooth! There are of course cheaper options, but they don’t last all day.
