While, in the beginning, her products were mostly vegan free, she later changed that to meet vegan standards. Her inspiration for the line came about when she started making her own clothing- when she realized that there was no makeup bold enough or bright enough to march, she began brainstorming.

She wanted to make a line of cosmetics that made a statement and that used all the colors of the rainbow- and she did just that! Lime Crime is significantly less expensive than other lipsticks or lip kits. Since Kylie Jenner went bold with her lips, there are more and more products to give bold lip color, but nothing compared to the colors of Lime Crime! There is much to be said about Doe Deere‘s generosity also- she has donated sixteen thousand dollars to multiple charities.

George Soros Explains the Refugee Crisis in Europe

Billionaire George Soros knows that the current refugee crisis in Europe is wreaking havoc on the EU and the rest of continent. Refugees began a mass exodus from Syria starting in 2013 and by 2015 millions of Syrians have over flooded European borders. Greece is the primary nation on that is responsible for holding the refugees. However, the EU and the rest of Europe must find a solution to help alleviate this problem. George Soros clearly revealed that European leaders must be proactive with dealing with this current crisis. According to Soros, EU governments must spend billions of dollars right away to get the problem under control and then shift to maintaining the current system on that they will establish from this effort. George Soros also points out that the current policy set in place by the EU was worked out with Turkey but only enforced by the EU. The currently policy is also seriously underfunded which means that it will be ineffective for combating the problem with Asian and African refugees. The other reason that George Soros gives for the failure of this policy has to do with the fact that very few European countries want it in place. European countries who are required to take in refugees really do not want this problem. However, they must deal with it since they are a part of the EU. Also added to this conundrum is the fact that refugees do not want to reside in just any European nation where they are forced to relocate. Soros also points out that when refugees cross the border they have a tendency to settle into a society and drain it of resources. This has to change. Soros encourages the EU nations to set systems in place that will help immigrants to enter the country and to become contributors to the community where they reside. The key to taking on more immigrants is to have a growing economy that will sustain them. This is the ultimate message that Soros is trying to send to EU governments. Soros’s views on this particular matter is available online at The New York Review of Books. You can access this story by clicking on the previous link. People who are not aware of George Soros, he is the 30th wealthiest person on the Earth. His net worth is in the billions and he is a rare magnate that has immense influence in business, economics and politics. Soros has been around for many years helping to fund political causes, governments and charitable organizations.
