Spring Rebel

Cosmetics Fair is going on right now, and if you’re a makeup/applier/tattoo addict like me, this is something you definitely want to check out. Also, you still have some time to get to the current – and awesome – round of Collabor88 before it ends. I’m featuring items from both events in this post. First, I was utterly thrilled when I saw that [TheSkinnery] had a LeLutka applier at Collab. I love my LeLutka heads, especially Chloe, which I’m wearing here with Nora (and other strange sentences you don’t say in RL). My eyeshadow is a Cosmetics Fair release from Arte, which is a new-to-me store. I really loved the palette; it was all very spring-y pastels. The tattoo applier I am wearing is also from Cosmetics Fair, by Nanika, which is another new-to-me store. But I really love this tattoo. It has a black option, too. But for spring I kinda liked the idea of white! My eyes are by Song and are also available at Cosmetics Fair. I am really fussy about eyes and I love these, so if you’re particular like me, definitely check them out!

The recent updates to LeLutka’s bento heads includes multiple teeth options, and also comes with braces. I know this is going to sound SUPER weird, and I also know anyone who actually has or had braces is gonna say I’m crazy, but as a kid I wanted braces SO BADLY. I can’t explain it. It started in 2nd grade when a girl I had a crush on got a retainer, and I thought she looked so freakin’ cute. I used to make a fake retainer out of a paperclip (which I am sure was great for my teeth). So actually, suddenly it makes perfect sense why I had that obsession. But anyway. Yeah. I had to wear the braces lol. Oh, my manicure is also from Cosmetics Fair and it’s by Alaska Metro. You get a ton of options and variations with this applier, and it’s well worth the price.

Spring Rebel

My dress is a new release from Neve, and it’s so sassy! I love how short and sexy it is, and the color options are gorgeous. The one I’m wearing is in the Aura color pack and it reminded me of rainbow sherbet. My strappy, sexy heels are from fri.day and you can snag them at Collabor88. Also from Collab is my furniture set from What Next. The vase of tulips are also What Next, and can be found in the mainstore. My sweet little puppies are from JIAN at The Epiphany. You can snag my sassy Exile hair at the current round of Collab, too! I’m still playing with colors, and I really love the newly updated textures and HUDS. Check them out if you haven’t yet!

Spring Spaniels

Oh, one final note? I’m wearing the recently updated Maitreya Lara body, which now includes bento hands, complete with animations, one of which I’m using above!

Song

Essences released a beautiful new skin in the mainstore recently. Song is just stunning, and the detail around the eyes particularly spoke to me. If you love Song as much as I do, in addition to the full release, there are also versions of it available at Cosmetics Fair and TDR Fusion.

Essences Song

I live in the sky over our store. I usually prefer it, because the privacy is really nice. But when I visit friends who live on the ground I am always, always jealous of their water! The water in SL is just so pretty. So when I visited a friend’s┬áhome recently, I had to hop on her moon (which is by MishMish, but I believe it was a limited edition) and gaze out the window at the view. The gorgeous skirt I am wearing is from Pure Poison, and you can find it at the Boho Culture Fair. The cute hair I have on is also available at that event, from MINA. There’s a little something for everyone who likes bohemian inspired culture, so be sure to check it out before it ends on October 31st.

Here for the view

Seeing Red

I fell in love with this Starlet dress from Blacklace. It’s gorgeously textured and sexy as hell. Even better? Through Thursday of this week it’s only L$99! This is also a limited edition color, for their weekly TGIF special, so grab it while it lasts. To find the dress, use the TP board and go to the Gifts area. Sale event items are also near there!

I built the look around the dress. My hair is new from Truth. I desperately wanted a straight bob haircut as a child, not understanding that without hours of work such a look is impossible for a girl with natural curls. I was crushed when I learned this, and to this day I admire straight bobs of all lengths. My shoes are from Gos Boutique and are available at this month’s edition of FaMESHed. I love polka dots. If something has polka dots, the odds are high I will want it!

Seeing Red

I took advantage of this gorgeous red to show off one of the many, many nail huds available from Flair for SLink hands and feet. This is from set 33, and I love the detail. This also lets me show off my new engagement ring. I had a ring my husband bought me in 2009, when we were still new to SL. It had 5 diamonds, one to symbolize each year we’d been married in RL, since we got married in SL on our 5th RL anniversary. Unfortunately, like many engagement rings in SL, it was no copy and quite a while ago, I accidentally deleted it. When I mentioned it still made me sad, he bought me a new ring! This is from Exquisite Jewelry, and the side stones have multiple gem options. I went with ruby to match the red vibe! Also… I have to say this, because it’s kind of uhm, prominent in this picture… this Blacklace mesh dress creates one awesome ass! Which is cool, since my avatar’s butt is kind of uhm… lush… without mesh, and sometimes I think mesh makes it too flat.

Nails

Finally, I am so utterly in love with my new skin from Glam Affair. This is Cleo, and Glam Affair is part of the Cosmetics Fair, which opened this weekend and features lots of designers. One of the offerings from Glam Affair is a set of lipsticks for Cleo (I’ve tested them with a couple of other Glam skins and they seemed to work on them, too). These are available individually or in a fatpack. I grabbed a few, and I’m wearing one in this pic. I love semi-matte lips. This lipstick has just a touch of shine/shimmer to make your lips pop, and the deep, rich red is a lovely shade that will work on a variety of skin tones. My eyes are from the new Ascension line by IKON. I’ve been in a browns/greens kind of place lately, but this deep blue spoke to me and I thought it would work well with all the red.
