SHOCK at Skin Fair review

Previously posted @ Amity Style.

Hi readers! I’m super excited to show you a skin from [SHOCK] Factory that you can find at Skin Fair 2015. It is called Mya and I think it is lovely. This is my first time blogging anything from Skin Fair. I also don’t do a ton of reviews, so I get very enthused to have the opportunity. The fair starts TOMORROW (3/13), but don’t be surprised if it takes you a while to get in. I will update this entry later with the landmark, as we are not allowed to release it yet. There are so many designers and tons of great items.

I was particularly drawn to Mya because of the detail. You know how much I love strong cheek bones, and Mya has that. The noses are particularly gorgeous in my opinion. Make sure to click the image so it will be larger and you can see the detail better. Mya comes in five tones and five make-up options, which are mainly differences in lipstick color. From left to right the tones are chocolate, tan, tea, sugar and porcelain. My favorites in particular are tea and sugar. I’m biased because they are the closest to the skin tone I regularly wear. If you are looking to purchase lighter tones, Mya is perfect for that reason. As you can also tell, you won’t find too many in-between tones on the darker end of the spectrum, but the chocolate tone is so rich and deep. I do find it the most beautiful with the red lipstick. In this photo I am not wearing any make-up layers, but I am wearing eyelashes, so keep that in mind. You can also see that the cleavage shading is great. I love the realism of that part too. In the pack you can get appliers for a lot of mesh body parts. There are appliers for wowmeh and Slink Physique (both of which I own), phat/cute azz, lolas, banned booty, ghetto booty AND Omega. You will also find a freckle tattoo and an extra cleavage option. For all those options alone, this skin is so worth it.

Hope you get a chance to visit Skin Fair and check out this beautiful skin for yourself! Thank you for the opportunity to show you.


Skin Fair – Skin Review, La Petite Morte

Previously posted @ Rags To Riches.

Skin Fair is just around the corner and the one thing I can’t stress enough is to demo EVERYTHING.  We all use different windlight settings, affecting the way we see things on our monitors.  Everyone has different monitor settings that may cause things to seem brighter or darker.  And not only that, the shapes that designers use for the skins in the pictures may not look anything like your shape and it can have a drastic impact on how the skin looks on you.

Another thing worth mention is the way in which skin stores display their vendors.  Some have little bottles coloured with the skin tone, others have a box with a texture.  But the way a skin colour looks on a flat texture prim compared to the SL Avatar or mesh body is different.  A prime example is the way in which La Petite Morte displays their skin options.  The pic above is how you will see the options for purchasing.  If you were to rely on thee images you would get a different skin tone if you bought blindly. DEMO’s are your friend!  I am a fan of these skins and I wear them frequently so I remember which tone is which now.

But you can see the difference between the liquid make up style swatch compared to the skin is different. Don’t be put off by looking at bottles/boxes on a shelf thinking none of the ‘colours’ there look like your preferred skin tone.  Grab a demo – it doesn’t cost you anything – and you may be pleasantly surprised.

The Maja line is a lovely skin for those that like a plump lip look.  The eyebrows are probably one of my favourites from La Petite Morte so far, nicely shaped, not too thick and they sit nicely with my current eyebrow shape.  If you are someone who likes blonde or coloured eyebrows then you will need to scout around for some tattoo layer eyebrows.  La Petite Morte skins only come with the one eyebrow colour, which is shown.  It works perfect for me as most of the eyebrows on the skins are dark and I am typical dark haired.  However each skin also comes with an eyebrow free version for this very reason.

If you like darker skin tones I really suggest trying both tone 7 and tone 8.  There’s quite a leap between them compared to the other tones but both are very pretty depending on which tone you prefer.

I used the Maitreya Body for the photos of the Maja line and I am using the SLink body for the Sadie line. All appliers you will find in the La Petite Morte main store and you are wanting the Gen 2 appliers.  I encountered an issue with the SLink body / hands / feet not looking seamless and with obvious colour variances.  Thankfully it seems it was an SL bug the day I took the photos.  I contacted the owner Voshie Paine and mentioned the issue and after a few minutes talking and me testing the skins again everything was fine.  It’s always nice to have a designer that is more than happy to listen and help even if the issue is server side and not theirs.

This is where I wish I could meld skins together.  I am in love with the little chin dimple on the new Sadie skin, but I love the eyebrows from Maja skin.  Sadie’s eyebrows are more on the ‘bushy’ side but playing around with your eyebrow shape may reduce this some.  As a lover of Pale skins the one thing I would love to see a little more definition on is the collar bones and the dimple.  The darker the skin tone gets the more these two stand out though.  I also love the new lip style that Sadie has.  The little extra detail around the lip line and the more defined lip wrinkles are quite pretty.

So please – if you are looking for a new skin.  Make two trips, it is totally worth it in the end.  Grab a demo for every store that you can.  Go home and test them all in different light settings and make a list of what you want.  You’ll be surprised and may end up getting something you never thought you would before.
