Skin Fair – Skin Review, La Petite Morte

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.

Adam ‘n Eve: Tanisha

Adam ‘n Eve is one of SL’s skin brands which really have  pretty steady flow of new releases of quality skins. Tanisha is one of the latest. Available in 4 skintones, Tanisha is a dark beauty.

Also, for your mixing and matching pleasures, Tanisha comes with  various eye and lip make up tattoo layers, so you can play with your make ups as much as you want (providing you use a viewer that allows multiple layers!)

As always… if you consider buying Tanisha, please always try a demo first. She may look different on you because we don’t have the same shape and my windlight settings may also influence the look  of the skin and it’s likely different for you as well.
