(I’m still playing catch-up on the blog, but I have to be honest, I’m not surprised. See, I’m not the kind of girl to write a few lines about something, attach a quick-snap and leave it at that. I like to waffle and write a bit more than you’ll perhaps see on some other Second Life blogs, so I’m not going to give myself a hard time about being behind)
I really enjoyed the last Cosmetics Fair, so I’m stoked that there is a Summer Edition running until June 30th. I LOVE cosmetics in SL, something I’ve mentioned countless times so I won’t rant on again and again about how awesome they are. But they are.
The Summer Edition is full of vibrant juicy colours and this time also includes LOADS of nail appliers for the Slink hands. It’s incredibly hard to visit on a budget, so don’t even try, but I do recommend looking out for freebies and dollarbies that are available. I think the prices are more reasonable this round in general actually.
I had a bijou gander and really struggled to rez everything on display, but once I had I was really impressed by the selection of cosmetics on offer this round. If I’m honest, I preferred it to the last selection. I hope it’s going to become a seasonal event because it’s really great to see what the creators come up with each time.
As you know I’m all about the eyeliner, and this time I wasn’t disappointed at all. I fell in love with two brands in particular at this event.
First of all ‘Pekka’, and for L$180 you can purchase a rather fab Dark make-up pack which I absolutely love. Black lipstick and eyeliner is bold and brash and doesn’t always work , but this set sure does. The shape of the lips and the eyeliner are just perfect, and the make-up can be worn as a complete face or as separate eyeliner/lip.
Another new brand that I discovered at Cosmetics Fair are cStar Limited. I absolutely drooled when I saw the imaginative Cat Liner make-ups, and it was bloody hard to pick just one, so I settled for the aptly titled ‘Hardcore Cat’ liner, at a very reasonable L$75. I paired it with some very hot lips, in fact this gloss that I’m wearing, no. 68, is part of a pack called ‘OMG Hot Lips’ which includes matte and gloss versions of ten fresh and funky shades, including purples, blues, oranges and reds. An absolute must have if you ask me, and again cheap at the price at just L$80.
Had I the moolah I would’ve bought everything on display, but alas I don’t. But the fair is open until the end of the month so I’ve plenty of time to pop back if any extra lindens float my way. Well done to Ekilem Melodie for bringing this very welcome event to the grid, I hope we see many more Cosmetics Fairs in the future!
(Note: When wearing make-up layers always try demos first, and always make sure you are wearing the best base skin that you have in your inventory for best effect. In these shots I’m wearing Belleza skin)
