Getting up close and personal.(Freebies and 10Ld Sale).

When it comes to makeup in RL and SL I’m as picky as a cactus. I know I have some makeup in my invent that I like, mainly from Lizzies, but on the whole, I have very little makeup or at least that was until I found Alaskametro.

This lipstick is so close to one in RL I’ve just bought I can’t believe it!

The first note I opened wasn’t from Faith, which is what I usually do as I was excited to see one about the SALE going on at Alaskametro.  A lot of the lip, eye & eye/lip packs are only 10Lds! So I clicked away and have everything from fresh spring/summer colours to Autumnal shades.

The Alaskametro range comes in Catwa, Lelutka and Omega appliers.  Each palette comes with a free wearable demo and even at full price most of them, apart from the new range, come around the 85Ld price which is more than reasonable.

PS.  The sale items have a banner going across the corner of the poster.

I was, almost, a Genesis Girl. (Free Mesh Head).

I was late to the mesh head addiction, that wasn’t because of the cost it was just the struggle to find a mesh head I felt represented me best.  Not that I look anything like my AV, I wish. So as I was looking and trying and testing out demo after demo I ended up at the Genesis Lab shop.  At that time the group did cost to join and I did because if I remember correctly there was a couple of free mesh heads so it was a cheap way of owning at least a couple of them.

Time has moved on and I ADORE my Leltuka head and PumeC skin and of course, we now have Bento mesh heads so it’s a whole new ball game however the Genesis group is now FREE to join so check out my noggin.

This is actually so much better than I had expected.  I am wearing the head and eyes but not the shape which comes as recommended for the eyes but I think this big open eye look is adorable.  She does feel a bit “stary” to me but of course, that’s because I use a Bento head so I’m much more used to facial expressions ie blinking, smiling.  Then when I’d cleaned my computer screen I could see that she also has a couple of light moles/freckles and it wasn’t just the dots of coffee splatter on my screen….shaddup we ALL have dirty screens! This skin is excellent, so clear and young and pretty.  You don’t get a full-body applier but you can either use your own body applier to make a match or purchase the body appliers which look as though for 200Lds you get all the shades.

There are other gifts mainly make up as far as I could see but for those of you who don’t have a mesh head or even a bento mesh head then I think this is a marvellous starting point.

UPDATE: I was in such a rush do to this post that it was only when I logged back in did I spot that this gift also inc a hud so I’m now having a little play with that and if this had been a gift out when I was first mesh headhunting I would have worn this all the time.

Need I remind you? (Freebies@Shiny Shabby).

I don’t know when the Shiny Shabby event shuts it’s doors but I’m going to assume the clock is clicking down so GO NOW!

Last time I visited this event the lag was Hellish but I’d managed to grab this dress and so you have seen it before but now this event has calmed down I’ve had a lovely time wandering around and grabbing a lot of quality freebies.

The dress, bag and nails make for a great look BUT do I look different?  I’m wearing one of the Free 7 Deadly S(k)ins skin.  They come in an Omega hud which I think most of us have and you get the whole lot, head, body hands and feet.

The dress is a Valentina E one and the bag is from Hervae but as for the nails I forgot and of course the skin is a 7 Deadly S(K)ins.

Shiny Shabby.

Not so “Hangry” now. (Freebie’s & Mention of lots of Freebies).

There is a lot of freebies to go through so sorry you’re going to have to read the spam.

BM is Baby Monkey and although I’ve never been a frequent visitor to this shop it’s been around almost as long as Faith and I so just hearing the name made me smile.  I smiled more when I put this FREE top on! Just lovely, great colour, a fine knit texture and folds then I spotted the matching pair of ankle boots/shoes, same colour, same leaf but a different Freebie Group.

I can’t remember the exact free groups, 2 of the biggest names though, but the group invites are right next to the gifts so easy to join.

Then I spotted on the wall an oversized Christmas tree with gifts that are still active.  Each gift is only 1Ld or free for Group Members.  The group does cost 20Lds to join and since there are 12 gifts I just paided 12x1Ld for the lot of them.  As it happens I missed the fact that on a wall close by you can actually see what the gifts are so you can pick and chose.  The pants I’m wearing are one of the Advent Gifts and they’re appliers.  The thing I did notice about these gifts is that they all have the same or very similar colour huds so you can mix and match whole outfits.

Now for a recommendation & mention of freebies.

I am incredibly fussy/faffy when it comes to make-up in SL, and RL, I rarely buy it but not too long ago I picked up a couple of special offers from an event and I LOVE them so much I’m in the …shop planning on treating myself.  Turns out the prices are more than reasonable but I may go wild and splash a bit more cash and get a palette of the new shades because you get 3 lip sizes for each shade!  So I can keep my lips natural, pouted or poutiest(sic). If you look at my face I’m actually wearing the lipstick and eyeshadow from this pack, natural-looking lips obviously.  Which brings me to the freeness as each lipstick/eyeshadow pack in the shop comes with a wearable demo.  So I’ve grabbed a whole load of them but I’m definitely going to return to treat myself with one of the full packs.

UPDATE: When I was LM grabbing I spotted that there are a lot of Group Gifts for the Baby Monkey shop so you may want to join that before you pay for the Advent gifts.  Also, Alaskametro has Group Gifts out and for only 50Lds you can score not just some nice stuff I noticed that one of the palettes I picked up which got me over to the shop is also inc in the gifts.

Not too (Shiney) Shabby. (Freebies).

Shiny Shabby has opened its door and everyone has flooded in, not too sure if it’s for all the new designs of clothing, furniture, skins etc or the FREEBIES!

For me, it’s the freebies of course and there seems to be oodles of them as from a quick scan around I could see a gift box on all of the stands.  So in this picture just from I’m wearing a FREE Valentina E dress and standing in a FREE The Bearded Guy backdrop/room but I’m not wearing the FREE Lipstick, lol.  Actually, it was pretty amazingly bold in colours, it just didn’t suit the dress so I’m sticking to the subtle shade I already had one.

The place is heaving, which does mean that for me the Winter Shop & Hop event may have calmed down so you know where my next TP will be too.

PS.  The dress comes in just the one fit, guess which, but shockingly it’s not a bad fit at all for me.

Mention of FREE clothes, eyes, jewellery, tattoos, wearable etc etc

All those listed and more in the title are gifts from the SaNaRae event and all I’m going to show you is this.

Such a simple and yet perfect little Sake set, only 1 prim for the whole tray and 1 for the cup.

Obviously, a lot of what’s out there is for faces/shapes I can’t use ie Genius make-up, Maitreya tunic but the reason I chose this tray out of SO many gifts is the shop name is new to me.

I may sometimes lose on the freebie level but often getting reminders of shops I’ve not visited in a long time and even better shops I’ve never visited before can be just as rewarding.

It’s a busy event as it’s just opened it’s doors but I have a feeling that you should still be able to get in, so join the SaNaRae group and it’s the boxy Snowmen on almost every stand you’re looking for.

You know me.(Reblogged Freebies).

You know that I rarely do make-up, jewellery and tattoos and all the small things but if you scroll back through my most recent posts you may have noticed my lippie.

I have thousands of poses, hundreds of shoes, enough umbrellas to cover a football field and on and on but when it comes to make-up I actually have very little and it’s not for trying.  I just find that to my eyes it just doesn’t look good.  I’m not saying it’s bad but I’m the RL person who walks out of Boots with an arm covered in lipstick test strips on my arms and still haven’t found the right shade.

Not too long ago I did a post about free skins etc from Lumae and in one of the gift boxes is a set of lipsticks which I almost binned without trying as they were marked as “glimmer” so I expected them to be another set destined for the trash bin but to my surprise they turned out to be just my cup of tea (coffee).  A really nice pallete of subtle, dark and bold colours and the pink box is set to 0Lds.

To top it off and since I’m wearing it I may as well remind you about this top-quality sweater.  I’ve put the Marketplace shop link to it rather than the inworld shop as the No Cabide shop is a bit busy as there is a paid-for hunt going on.  This sweater comes with a massive and colourful hud.
