LimeLife by Alcone - Scam and phony beauty guides

This company is full of the most phony women I have ever had to listen to in my life. You can get the “ liquid gold” half the price online as well as their foundations and concealer - literally half the price . Such a waste

They hammer you into it. Way to expensive. Its like a cult that doesnt leave you alone. Makeup gave me an eye infection and made my skin bright red. But they told me "its just my skin" do not buy from them.

Limelight By Alcone - Disappointed

I purchased the starter kit and the colours of the eye shadow and lipstick did not match my skin tone at all so I wasn’t even able to use them and some of the products smell horrible. Not impressed at all.

Limelight By Alcone - Totally Unprofessional

1.0
Details
This "company" advertises by having their self-proclaimed Beauty Guides post Facebook lives, Instagram stories, and/or YouTube videos giving testimonials about the products. The amount of unprofessional behavior and misinformation is astounding. Here are some of the things that have happened: -A top guide (initials L.C.) swears repeatedly in her videos, brags about having "words" with 6 year old children, "whooping" her kids, lies about the cost of other makeup (Givenchy makes a pen for $27, and she claimed it cost 3x that amount), and makes false claims about the products. -Their products are sold out consistently. The beauty guides admit this, then they try to tell you that just because they don't have what you want, you should buy something else anyway -They claim there's no minimum to stay enrolled...yet you need $300 in sales to be "active" -They claim their makeup was never allowed to be sold to members of the public, and that's why the main company Alcone decided to launch a direct sales line...only problem is most of their makeup is just marked up things that you can already buy for much less money (example, their botanical foundation that costs $36 is RMCA brand for $23...SERIOUSLY LOOK IT UP!) -They claim you don't need to have any inventory to be involved in the direct sales...however they constantly push beauty guides to get the new products so they can show them off in their videos -Lying about how Limelight let them afford a vacation, a new car, or a new house...even though it's not true, the leaders encourage them to make these kind of posts -Lying about how their teams are "growing" when they don't -Constant use of photoshop in makeup tutorials to pretend the makeup is capable of doing things it isn't. Stay away from this shady company. Your skin is better because you're doing a routine, not because you're smearing overpriced products on your face. The makeup looks caky and obviously like you smeared too much stuff on your face. If you really want "professional" (aka makeup meant for people on TV not the average everyday look) buy it directly from alcone, not the scam that is limelight.

I have been reading through several reviews and I'm flabbergasted as some of the ridiculousness. Most can read through it though as I'm sure most are ex Beauty Guides coming on here to have their 5 minutes of revenge. I have been a customer for over a year and absolutely love the makeup and skincare. The skincare has helped my skin so much and the makeup is amazing. I honestly love the lines so much that I'm contemplating on joining a team I just haven't looked into it enough. Customer care has always been helpful and my Beauty Guide is the utmost sweet and caring lady. I give this company a huge thumbs up. Keep rocking it Limelight by Alcone. I feel you're only gonna get bigger.

I'm not a beauty guide. I'm a customer.

I can tell you, there has been shady *** going on. Limelight is not as transparent as they seem. With that said, I still am slightly considering joining them IF they become more transparent.

As for my customer experience, it was not that great. But they have hired more people so maybe it's better now.

It Cosmetics - I bought one thing from them in dallas tx on a trip and the next month I got a box from It saying I should pay for these things. I call and told them I never ordered anything and would not pay them.

the next month I got another box and another demanding payment letter. I did not fall for this either and now I'm getting letters saying they will turn over this to a collection agency. This should be enough to convince you to stay away from this company. but if it is not then you will be given monthly boxes and then letters saying they will ruin your credit. and then they will send you a letter that they will ruin your credit rating. At first I was worried about this mix up but now I know they are just trying to make more money anyway they can.

Limelight By Alcone - After careful research

1.0
Details
L only hit Black Status with Younique once but pretends it was more than once. It's not like she was one of the real top leaders at Younique because she wasn't. I read straight through her and Limelight Ceo's and Leaders. They try and control all their Beauty Guides by manipulating their minds. They actually believe celebrities use their makeup when the fact is some have actually done makeup for celebrities but didn't use Limelight by Alcones makeup. The Alcone store provides makeup to production companies for theatrical makeup not everyday makeup. Someone is going to sue them sooner or later. Kinda remind me of a Cult or Scientology group the way they manipulate their minds. Their focus in training is how to control someones thought process. They make up excuses for anything that happens. L has been making up excuses for her bad skin and why their products don't work for her since she been there. She constantly lie on her lives and even posts. Her older son obviously doesn't live with her and she pretends he does. The 2 other founding Beauty Guide Leaders don't even work. They don't even know how to be leaders and bounce off of L and C for ideas. And don't let me start on the cooperate dude who wants to be an inspirational Speaker so bad. Really all yo have to do is go through his timeline and you know he's out of his league. He was good managing the store applying makeup. I remember some of his first lives he was mimicking L's lives so bad it was... The whole leadership over there is FAKE! L and C can't stand one another. They are constantly in competition against each other and their leaders on their teams. Both of them want to be like A from the Y company. Their beauty guides constantly report each other to compliance because of jealousy. I say both of you did good getting out while yo could. I'm a person who doesn't do DS but thought about it and did my research before I did and quickly changed my mind. No wonder you hardly hear any of them saying do you research.It's a big MESS!!

The makeup is the only product that has not caused me to breakout and allows me to look flawless and feel makeup free. I'm sorry but I'm never using another product!

My Facebook is Charlie Marie Lowe-Mackey check out my face before LL and after.

It speaks for itself. Best ever.

All you are doing is looking like a poor sport from Y that is jealous of others success. How sad for you!

Yep! L and a few others below her are the reason why I quit!

She gave me nightmares!

I could not subject anyone to that kind of treatment. A lot of the other downline was super embarrassing too!

So if you aren't in direct sales...how do you know all about L and C?

Also L is pretty open about her older son.

She has a great relationship with his step mom. They all coparent. I don't think her personal life matters.

Curious, can you cite a source showing that L only hit black once?

And a source that show L and C hate each other?

I don't consider A to be something special tbh. She's tacky imo.

I haven't tried Limelight, but I have tried Jane Iredale Cosmetics and Repechage Skin Care and they are far superior to Merle Norman, Estee Lauder, etc. These two companies use natural products, minerals and are skin-care makeup brands.

I disagree, I have not found foundation, concealer, or lip gloss that I like as much as theirs and I definitely haven't had concealer or foundation with this good of coverage. Just my experiences.

You're much better off getting microdermabration or IPL facials, they actually improve your skin. And you can get Groupon discounts for $35 treatments at the best places in your area!

Actually no you can't buy this quality at Walmart. Originally made for professional make up artists it's now available to everyone.

The price point is very equal to what you'd buy at Sephora or Ulta. Not Walmart or CVS. Because of the hyper pigmentation of their makeup you need very little so lasts quite some time.

Their skincare line is better than anything out there. Do your research.
