Quote of the day : ”There is so much hate among people, so much contempt inside people who’d like you to think they’re moral, that they have to hire ”prizefighters” to do their hating for them. And we do. We get into a ring and act out other people’s hates.”
I had not planned for this post to be a review. Nor do I think it is, though I feel like expressing my opinion, or, my random thoughts about it. So pardon my rambling…I’ve been pointed to, some rather funny, some thougtful and other rather partial ‘reviews’ of LeLutka’s new skins so I thought I needed to have a saying on it/them. I’ve read a lot about how much people were expecting and eager for Lelutka’s skins to be released and how people thought they ‘looked ugly in them’. The fact a skin does not look good on you, doesn’t mean the skin itself is ugly looking. Maybe and without the intention of sounding too rude, your shape doesn’t fit it, it is not the best for it, or maybe your shape is just plain ugly. Being beautiful or ugly, is always relative (each and everyone have their own opinion, input and perspective about it) you cannot judge a skin because it doesn’t fit your avi. That is not equal to saying a skin is UGLY.
Second thing I noticed was people complaining about the eyebrows. More than anything else, which apparently ‘perplexed’ a lot of ‘you’ ! It’s funny because in the past a lot have complained about how ‘overly plucked’ the eyebrows seemed and now, they’re just NOT enough. Rather than thinking they’re just too ‘bushy’, you could think, now you have two options (both in old and new skins), to have more plucked and more ‘natural’ looking eyebrows. I personally think a little tweak on your eyebrows SHAPE, makes a whole and big difference, and you can actually DO THAT.
Not that skins should follow a trend, but one has clearly not noticed Alexander Wang‘s latest collection (as far as face/hair goes, eyebrows are rather ‘natural’/thick looking and hair, omg, hair!..PLEASE someone make an alexander wang braid look a like hair). I love truth’s (romy) but can we has a more careless (longer/thinner) one and since I’m whining (and on) about it, why not call it oomsie?..LOL!..joke..I guess. 😦
Another thing I noticed people pointing out, was the nose. Now this is a personal and rather partial opinion. I love the nose shading and how it’s enhanced. Here I can understand people do not fully agree, and may think otherwise, but I dig it. It gives us a whole different look. For most might not work, but for me, it just stands out from the ‘old’ lelutka skins and gives the face both, different character and features. It’s exactly those two things that give ECLAT‘s, a stronger and different character, and thats why I personally love it.
Minnu’s personal ‘touch’ or magic touch for some, is still there (you can recognize her ‘signature’) and you may not love eclat as much as you loved london or moscow or any of her ‘older’ skins, but honestly, in the end, is how much you feel ‘yourself’, or as ‘beautiful’ as you want to feel and that will always be debatable. Always questionable.
As for my own opinion, I really like them. Especially the fair, light and sun kissed tones (freckles and hairbase!! yay!). The make up is rather ‘classic’, from the back eyeshadow, to the darker lips, the ‘ice’ queen look with more muted colors both in eye and lips and the natural kind. There’s no crazy/excessive make up but that only adds to more possibilities and day to day basis look or a more polished one when you feel like it. MUAHS ❤ Uma

p.s. I AM no longer running or living through or by sl times but rl ones. Therefore, I am not here to blog about what’s ‘new’ or what’s just ‘released’ and whenever I blog, I blog because I love it, no matter how many times it was blogged before, or if it was blogged ‘years’ ago. Sometimes and most of times (here), it’s just about clothes, about styling, about re-inventing ourselves and our clothes (as I repeated so many times) and though it is surely about sl, it is never about who got it first or who wore it first. ❤ Uma
