Catching Up With Doe Deere - CD + Lime Crime Makeup Giveaway!


For those long time readers of EQ, you'll know that I properly went ape-shit when I first heard Doe Deere's debut EP "Supernatural" a few years ago.  Every so often, I still spin that EP as the songs on it (especially "One Touch") really get me going.  Well since then, Doe Deere got a tad bit side-tracked from the music and has in the last year gone from budding pop icon to extremely successful beauty blogger and entrepreneur in the cosmetics industry.  Doe Deere now owns and operates her own makeup line called Lime Crime - which is a huge hit in the States and the UK for those girls and boys who need a bit more "color" in their life.  

When I was in NYC - Doe Deere was the first person I got to catch up with as I attended her Lime Crime launch party at SpaceNK where we got to chat about all things Doe Deere - from her hugely successful blog - The Doe Deere Blogazine to how she keeps up with running her own makeup company and most importantly, what's going on with the music.  And despite her temporary step away from the music scene, Doe Deere still remains one of my personal divas - I think everything she does is just magic and who really cannot just love her and her personal mission of spreading glee across the universe - one brightly colored lipstick at a time - enjoy.

And make sure to enter the Doe Deere Lime Crime Competition over on Facebook to win a copy of "Supernatural" and a Lime Crime Makeup Prize!

Well hello Doe Deere - how are you today darling?
I'm great, it's good catching up with you Raj!

So I see you made it back safe and sound to NYC after being stuck in London with the volcano madness - did you enjoy your time being stuck in London?
I could say we got "lucky enough" to get stuck in London for a few extra days, because prior to that it was non-stop work.  We were on a tour of SpaceNK, where my lipstick line Lime Crime just launched in the UK. How can you not like a town that plastered your face all over its stores?  We certainly received a very warm welcome - including the weather which was uncharacteristically sunny. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back!

I saw from one of your blogs that you discovered the magic that is SNOG.  How many snogs did you have while you were here?
Only one, and it was spectacular!  We do have a similar chain here in the US, called Pink Berry - but SNOG takes the cake in terms of the design!  So candy-futuristic!

Ha!  Yes, I have to have at least one SNOG a week now!  So thanks for agreeing to do this catch-up interview.  Our EQ readers just love you and your music.  But some of them don't quite yet know that you've put music on hold for now to focus on your new career as a makeup guru and beauty blogger - tell me all about it!
Well, I'm actually a beauty entrepreneur first and foremost.  Soon after I recorded "Supernatural", I began thinking of creating my own makeup line because I could never find cosmetics bright enough for my tastes.  Lime Crime launched in late 2008 and became a runaway success.  I still love the record though and listen to it frequently - it's such a fun little EP!

Doe Deere Blogs And Is Now Available on iTunes


Probably my favourite artist right now is Doe Deere and I've recently discovered some really cool new tidbits about her. Doe has recently launched her very own blogazine which is really really well done. If you are an artist that blogs, this is how it should be done. Take note.

Doe's blog is a combination of all things pink and gurly and offers everything from insightful interviews to DIY recipes for fabulous face slap like the pix you see above. But above all, it's really eye-pleasing and I am just loving it it's pink fabulosity - a true representation of the lady herself - geesh, is there anything that Doe Deere can't do? I think I have a gay crush on her!

Doe has also released her stellar album "Supernatural" on iTunes now so for all of you who were wondering how the hell to get your grubby well-manicured hands on her music, it's as easy as a button click - just search for Doe Deere and voila - your pod will be very happy!
