The Gold Life

I love skins, in fact I have a skin addiction, and thankfully for me there are several events a year to satiate my need. The Skin Showcase organized by the Skin Addiction group opened today, and I decided to put together a look with the Moana skin from {.essences.}, which you can pick up there. I tend to stick with a few favorite brands when it comes to “everyday” skins, but I love the exotic look of this skin.

I’m wearing the Rosy Pale tone skin, along with a freckle tattoo layer, which is included in the package. You also can get eyeshadow and lipsticks to compliment the base skin, but I wanted to show it more naturally so you get a better idea of what it really looks like. The skin comes in 5 tones, and each one includes blush, freckles, pubic hair options and tattoo lashes. Base skins are L$ 800 per tone, the eyeshadow pack is L$ 200 for 10 colors, each cleavage layer is L$ 199 and the 10 color lipstick pack is L$ 200.

PS: I know I played with different frames and stuff, but I’ve been toying with PicMonkey – give it a try yourself!

Preview of Skin Addiction’s Skin Showcase #1

The Skin Addiction group’s Skin Showcase opens Friday May 25, 2012 and runs until June 10, 2012. Before it does though, I wanted to show you a few skins that you’ll be able to grab. The first is by Ploom, and is called Lea in the Dahlia make-up. It comes in 5 skintones – I’m wearing Cream – and each will cost you L$ 900. There are also 2 other make-up options, at the same price. You can also grab a free gift if you are a member of the Skin Addiction group (when your tag is active)!

I’ve also got 2 skins from IREN to show, the first is Molly in Pale. It comes in a total of 6 skintones, and each is L$ 600.

The second skin from IREN is Suri, and I’m wearing it in Light as well as with a lipstick tattoo layer in rose (included with each Molly and Suri skin). Each skintone is also L$ 600. There is also a Skin Addiction group member gift at this stop.

The final skin in this post is from Rosy mood. You’ll find KEIKO in 2 skintones with 5 different make-up options for purchase. Each is L$ 500 and comes with a shape. I’m wearing the dark tone in the smokey make-up. You’ll also be able to grab a gift here if you’re a member of the Skin Addiction group.

All the above mentioned stores have an exhibition space in the forest area of the sim, which you can reach with this slurl:

It’s that time of year again, Culture Shock is going on and that means tons of great stuff out, with every designer having some proceeds going to the charity the event supports: Médecins Sans Frontières which helps bring doctors to places where people can’t typically afford medical treatment and desperately need it. I am wearing the Marion Skirt from E! Eclectic Apparel that you’ll be able to find at Culture Shock, in the exclusive Pallid color, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this skirt is going to the charity. I’m also wearing the Lola Top which works perfectly with the skirt, and you can hop over to the mainstore to grab it if you don’t want to brave the event quite yet. Both are mesh items, so do make sure to try a demo before buying!
