The first time I saw people dressed up like unicorns was San Diego Comicon. Now, the unicorn trend is everywhere. I love the bright, fun colors, and my teenage girls insisted we join the trend. I mean, if Starbuck’s is doing it, so should we, right?
After a trip to the local box store yielded nothing in the way of unicorn or extra colorful makeup, the girls and I went online to find options. The site that really caught our eye is Lime Crime; the girls responded to the unicorn/punk/rebel vibe the site has, and I was attracted to the affordability of products.
The first thing we had to purchase was unicorn hair dye. I’m sure you can imagine, I had trepidations about coloring my beautiful blonde girls locks with crazy colors. After all, what if school doesn’t allow it in the fall? The great news with Lime Crime is the dye is only semi-permanent. What this means is if we decide that purple, green, and pink hair is no longer desired, we can wash the color out with shampoo or a color remover.
The next stop in our online shopping odyssey was to look at nail options. My youngest is terrible about biting her nails, so when I saw the “pop-on” nails, I had to put some in our cart. Thankfully because the nails are a fun color, she won’t fight me about putting them on.
My oldest made sure to point out to me the business was founded by a woman. In her recent wonder-woman fueled empowerment movement, this was important to her; so was the fact that the brand is completely vegan and cruelty free. She’s going to be the most colorful and socially minded girl around!
Finally, we had to check out the lipstick. Lime Crime has tons of distinct colors available. I was especially drawn to the Diamond Crushers line. I’m not afraid to admit, I want my lips to glitter!
We checked out, and we are looking forward to getting our purchases shipped to us soon. https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/brands/lime-crime
