*Review* ::Soda:: Persona Skins

By Luna Jubilee  //  Skins  //  1 Comment

I am really enjoying what is coming out from the skin designing community. The “Persona” skins from ::Soda:: are without a doubt one of those skins that should be owned.  They portray an aurora of drama and mystic.

This pack has been sitting in my inventory for the last few days. It was one of the first times that I didn’t instantly toss on right away.  I did it for a reason.  I wanted to capture my first initial reactions to the line and walk you all through my thoughts as I look over the skins.  This will give the bad and good through my eyes.  Its an effort to give a more realistic approach to skin buying.  Of course, we all buy skins for different reasons and those reasons will vary depending on different needs or wants.

The first skin I happen to pick is from the The Model line and from what I would think from the name, is the base skin.  Compared to the other makeups, it is a base line.  Its a pale lip with heavy smokey eyes (hence “sultry” and my fav). From here, I would think that the next “level”, if you will, is the introduction of color to the makeups. 

I went right to a high dramatic eye.  Pleasantly surprised as I was thinking it would be a dark or even black lip with grey toned eyes.  Newp. Its a heavy colored eye with flecks of shimmer and neutrals shades.  The lip really honestly caught my eye.  Its a dark smudged color that is just alluring.  What a great beginning to a wonderfully colorful line.  Just like each of the collections, (The Girl Next Door, The PinUp and The Model), each skin has its own personality that is surprising and attractive.  

With the makeup (the fun side to skins) is covered. Let’s check out the body and its shading. The lines from the face to skull to ears … and really all the seams… blend well.  This time around for this post, I paid particularly close attention to the collar bone and areolae.  Yup, I was scoping out the nips. Before you all think I have issues (which I do but that’s for another post), its the idea that some of us get naked and need to have better defined privates.  These areolae are on the fuzzy side.  Is it a deal breaker for buying the skin? No. With this skin tone, the nips in this state work very well with the overall skin. For the collarbone, its not a predominant feature.  Which I like.  Again, the skin tone is on the paler side so for a heavily shaded collar bone or really anything or any one area, the skin would like unrealistic. 

Another few things I noticed in the shading is in the cleavage and on top of the touche.  The cleavage is not blatant but gives the look of a full cup size.  With the whiter chest fading into a warm dark tone for shading, the chest looks natural.  Now the backside.  Again, I was looking for interesting features. The spine down to the touche is very well crafted.  The cleavage for the touche is defined giving it a lifted look.  Kinda nice for that region.

My overall impressions with ::Soda:: is that its a great fun and exciting designer who isn’t afraid of branching out into colors.  Tons of great personality for each skin.  I will be watching as more tones are released.
