Early Life Edit
Deere was born on June 15, 1981 in Izhevsk, Russia, grew up in New York City, and currently lives in Los Angeles. Deere attended the Fashion Institute of Technology to study fashion design and illustration, but dropped out early to pursue her clothing line, Lime Crime, as an independent fashion designer on Ebay. Since Deere was a one-man operation, she had to model her own creations, which included creating her own makeup looks.
Deere created LimeCrime in the fall of 2008 and it is vegan and cruelty free as synthetic beeswax, as opposed to natural beeswax is 100% vegan, contrary to popular belief. Deere felt that many cosmetic brands weren’t true to color, and eye shadows went out sheer, rather than highly pigmented, and decided to make her own cosmetics line. LimeCrime is based off of Deere’s exuberant sense of style, and includes mystical colors. The first slogan LimeCrime used was “It’s so bright, it’s illegal.” LimeCrime is run an independent team of cosmetic specialists from Los Angeles, Deere has 100% say in what goes into LimeCrime.
Between October 2014 and February 2015, LimeCrime was involved in a malware breach that compromised the security and gave away LimeCrime customer names, addresses, credit/debit card information, and passwords. When asked about how they’re dealing with the situation Deere only responded a handful of times.
