Doe Deere, the Russian-born mastermind behind Lime Crime Cosmetics, proves to us that our ambition can take us anywhere. She isn`t afraid to show off her unique style and incorporate it into her passion for makeup. Her story sets the example that, with some determination and a lot of heart, anything is possible.
Firstly, her tale begins in Russia, even from a young age Doe was a bit of a business woman. At age 13 she sold temporary tattoos to her classmates and found a very effective way to do so. She started by showing them off on her own body and soon enough everyone wanted to jump on the band wagon. Her individual fashion sense, and personal experience, has since helped her flourish her career in business to a worldwide level.
By 2008, Doe had been living in New York City as a musician. She had always been a fan of fun and bright colors, however, they were proven difficult for her to find in the world of makeup. She then decided to create her own makeup line, Lime Crime,that featured the array of flashy colors she gravitated towards. To Doe`s surprise, many other women were interested in these vivid colors as well, which made her company profitable.
Not only does Lime Crime offer a look that most other companies don`t, but it has a great message behind it. Doe believes that, “We express ourselves by what we put on our bodies”. Because of this belief, Lime Crime has become a brand that helps women portray how they feel through their makeup.
With their mission being to revolutionize makeup itself, it is not a difficult brand to get behind. Being a pioneer in digitally-native makeup companies, Lime Crime has managed to take the internet by storm. They have created many mainstream must-haves that other brands try to mimic, with each product being vegan and cruelty-free.
In conclusion, Lime Crime has really set a new standard for cosmetics. Doe has been able to turn dream into reality by setting her ideas into motion. Now, almost ten years later, her company has helped inspire women world-wide to express themselves without the fear of being judged.
CEO Tony Petrello of Nabors Industries Ltd is a loving husband to Cynthia Petrello with whom they have a daughter called Carena Francesca. He is a mathematician and a lawyer by profession. Tony has worked at Nabors Industries for the last 26 years.
Tony’s Daughter, Carena Francesca
Cynthia Petrello delivered their daughter in 1997 at only six months. Being a premature infant, Carena Francesca was weighing 20 ounces and had a disorder identified as Periventricular Leukomalacia (PVL). PVL is characterized by inadequate or lack of oxygen supply to the brain. The doctors at Houston Women’s Hospital did all they could to save Carena’s sight and heart, but they were unable to save her from cerebral palsy. She now lives without speech and can’t feed herself.

Some of the notable recipients of these donations include Baylor College of Medicine and the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Tony’s Total Compensation as at 2015
According to proxy statements from Nabors Industries, Tony received a total of $27.5 million in executive bonuses for the 2015 fiscal year. This figure was calculated by adding his salary, bonuses, stock, and all his other small compensations.

Tony Petrello topped the list of the best-paid CEOs in 2011, 2012, and 2013. However, in 2014, he did not appear on the list of highly paid CEOs since Nabors Industry revised its compensation traditions, slashing the severance pay for executives to only thrice their salary and bonus.

How many cylinder tubes of this lip balm have you used over the years? Chapstick has been the top name in lip balm for more than 100 years now, with the Blistex brand its only competition. Chapstick worked for minor chapped lip issues, but was lackluster and boring according to most standards.
In 2009 , EOS signed an agreement with Walgreens. The orb-shaped lip balms quickly filled the shelves of the Racked pharmacy, where the likes of Allure and Cosmo beauty editors discovered them and told the world. Soon, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, and many other celebs were seen with their Orbs. https://www.facebook.com/eos/
Fast forward seven years, and now EOS has done something that many thought impossible. The EOS lip balm brand became a better-selling lip balm than Chapstick. Yes, in just seven short years, EOS lip balm became the preferred brand of lip balm, beating out the name that everyone knew and trusted for so long.
What did the Lip Balm Company do that helped them beat out the Chapstick brand? The orb-shape was certainly welcomed and a welcomed change in contrast to the Chapstick tube. Flavors of EOS lip balm are also exciting, giving the lips a taste sensation with each use. And, of course, the organic ingredients inside of the product attract most people who worry about what they are putting on their skin. EOS strives to keep up with the latest trends and improve their product whenever possible. http://www.target.com/p/eos-organic-lip-balm-sphere-strawberry-sorbet/-/A-13731791
