*Review* Cupcakes Skins

Scarlet has been for the last several months my go-to for dark tones. When I heard of the limited edition at Cupcakes in the group notices, I first thought it would be just another skin for my own collection. It did make it to my collection but needed it to be added to Scarlet’s. The dark tones are very rich, warm and just perfect for her.

Scarlet Hudson: *CUPCAKES – Daydream – Coconut – Violet Love (Freck)

This limited edition skin is available in all the tones only for 50L. I can’t emphasize this enough – Limited Edition. So hurry over to Cupcakes!

While you’re there, browse all the skin lines and tones for more 50L skins. Each line and tone has a hidden 50L makeup. Collect them all or just your own tone. You can’t beat 50L skins. This sale/hunt ends November 1st.

If that doesn’t strike your fancy, when you enter the store, there are ten gift bags priced at 250L. The gift bags are packed with skins, eyes, a shape, and a dress.  The skins are samples from each line with several tones. This is a great way to get alittle bit of everything Cupcakes offers for such a low price.

*Review* Rockberry Skins

Rockberry has a new location and hit 6000 members in their group. Yup! 6000 members! We all know Rockberry is overly generous with their skins by offering lucky boards and chair and now a skin just for this milestone for all their group members.

*Review* :: Exodi :: Lily “Oldies But Goodies”

BedTimeI did this pic last night and never planned to blog it. It was just for fun. Today when browsing my flickr, it really struck me, this pic, in my opinion, really shows the softness of the skin.

Exodi has become one of the most common skins I tend to wear. Of course, this makes it one of the most blogged skin brands blogged for me.

This skin, “Oldies But Goodies”, is packed with unique makeups. Yes some are not my typical looks while others are truly me. This is why I’m really enjoying this pack. It shows eight of the best makeups offered.  I found a few, like this one (Cygne Noir), that I didn’t see before (not sure why, its just stunning).

Another great little feature: regular and faded makeups. I don’t think I have seen this type of feature used lately (or before) in skins. What a terrific idea! You can purchase single skins (800L) or the fat packs in either faded or regular makeups.

Exodi has a freebie too in case you’re new to brand and want to do a test run before buying. I really don’t think you will be disappointed.

*Review* [Aden] Gen 5.

[Aden] is back and launching skins! Gen 5. is so perfect … check out the yummyness in the fair tone:

Aden Gen 5

Perhaps Fair isn’t your tone of choice. There are three other tones available: dark, light & tan. Within each skin tone, at least, 5 makeups and two cleavage options. Each of the makeups range from a heavy smokey eye to a soft smudge. The lip color variations are several pale shades and a stunning bold red. Regardless of what you choose (or even if you pick them all), you will be totally happy with the purchase!

Srsly. Keep this one on your shopping list … the store has a few empty walls right now but soon Gen 5. will be available. In the meanwhile, [Aden] hair is 100L for singles or 900L for the 12 pack.

Don’t forget – the Halloween giftie!
