Breaking News: Lime Crime To Be Stocked in SpaceNK

Yes, really.  According to Doe Deere, SpaceNK will be stocking her range of cosmetics in April 2010.  The line itself has attracted criticism in the past, both for its products and its business practice of threatening bloggers with legal action for less than glowing reviews, and asking for non-positive comments to be removed.

I don't have an opinion on Lime Crime's products, as I've never used them, but I'm not too sure that the childlike, sometimes garish packaging is going to fit in too well with the aura of sophisticated luxury I expect from SpaceNK.  I'll be curious to see what kind of prices are being charged; common opinion already seems to be that Lime Crime Cosmetics are overpriced for their quality, and given that US products usually incur a hefty markup when they arrive in the UK, I'm wondering just how high the price of a Lime Crime lipstick is going to be.

What do you think?  Will you be purchasing Lime Crime from SpaceNK in April?

  1. I've seen the swatches of the range and it didn't really do anything for me, plus her horrible track record of customer service speaks for itself. Even if her products were the best in the world I still wouldn't get them..

  2. I am not happy about this as i personally have had a really bad experience with the woman behind the brand in the past. Also i agree, i really don't see how the style goes with Space NKs atmosphere.

  4. I've only been in a Space NK, say, once, but sophisticated luxury is exactly how I'd describe the atmosphere. I wouldn't have thought their target audiences would be similar. Maybe they reckon LC will pull in a younger crowd.

  5. I hope that regular shoppers (meaning those that don't obsessively read blogs like me and therefore don't know about repackaging) recognise that the eyeshadows are horrible and the lipsticks are gloopy. That would amuse me so much :)
