Doe Deere had a very smooth take on the gothic look. I'm tired of the Hot Topic over-the-top goth appearance and I think her 40's glam ensemble with the swervy eyeliner and dark, silky mouth captured the mystery of being gothic without the faux drama. Take a peek at her perfectly done peepers in the image above!
I also asked her how she was able to blend the eye so well to avoid the 'stripe' eyeliner look with such a dark lip- lucky me- she gave me the info:

I love the eye in this! I struggle sometimes to get
a good balance with the sheer face/muted blush and dark lip. What do you
recommend for the rest of the eye, beyond the eyeliner??
I’d love to see
some Lime Crime blush!

I just used a little bit of beige
eyeshadow with Nymph Magic Dust on top.
Lime Crime Blushes? I’d love to see
those as well one day!
I'm grateful she filled me in. I knew a light brown would take the severity away from the eyeliner and create a smoother transition from the skin tone- so thanks Doe Deere for the insight!
But, other posts mentioned there were going to be more colours added onto Lime Crime's reportoire- exciting news! I read of a possible deep, dark red and possibly more Magic Dusts, hooray!
So, from the line creator herself, maybe we can see some blush coming from Lime Crime! I know there were a few a while back- but with any good cosmetic run, it's a matter of trial and error to get it right. I normally don't have patience with products that aren't completely available, but Ms. Deere is so charmingly likeable and her makeup is so consistently fresh and well done- I feel lucky to be in the queue!
So those are the blushes I could find. Names were Electric Bubblegum and Marie Antoinette- sigh....if only I'd grabbed some! But, I know Doe is inventive and this will be a full line in no time- and when it is, I'm there! There was also a shade called Electric Peach, but no photo, moto.
