a lil Review: Envy Skins

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

Last week Kira Paderborn, the creator behind Shapes by Kira and Corrupted Innocence, released her first line of skins, Envy. Kira has been working on skins for around 2 years, but wasn’t satisfied enough with the product to release it until Envy.

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

Envy comes in six different make-ups. These are only the first makeups of two that Kira has promised, and are more basic. Above are make-ups B and C.

The makeups for E and F feature a bit more of a dramatic shadow than the rest of the styles.

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

The body on Envyis exceptional for any skin, especially for a first-time skin designer. Although you can’t really tell with my hair, the ears are great, along with the teeth, which are two areas I’ve noticed is missed on some skins. The body is soft and there is the right amount of definition in the places it matters most- such as the breast, belly button, stomach, and lower back.

 

The skins sell for 600L each or you can get the whole fat-pack for the amazing deal of 2400L. Kira also designed a shape specially made for the skins, which sells for 800L. You can find the skins at both Shapes by Kira and Corrupted Innocence.

Amped in St. Tropez

There are a couple of things that really make my Second Life complete. The first being new releases from *BOOM*. I never know what to expect when I get a folder from Aranel Ah– I just know I’m going to love it. The same is to be said with *BOOM*’s latest, Amped, shown here in Purple. Amped is a sexy romper-ish (Shorts set? I can’t think of what to call this) that includes a sash at the waist in either a color that matches the outfit completely or a darker version of the color. I went with the darker purple because I liked the way it complimented the outfit. The outfit also comes with strings for the back of the halter to help add to the realism of the whole look.

"Amped" in "St. Tropez" by you.

Another thing that makes my Second Life is good customer service. Last weekend the huge powerhouse known as LeLutka released a whole new slew of items, one of which being theSt. Tropez shoes. Now, I’m not one of those that drops everything and runs when LeLutkareleases items, but these shoes were too hot to wait a few days to buy. The day after making my purchase of one pair of the heels, I logged in to find a fatpack of them awaiting me in my inventory. My jaw dropped and I immediately read the notecard. There had been some type of error (I believe scripting) in the shoes that had been noticed by customers and fixed by the designer. As an apology, everyone who had purchased the shoes received the fatpack as an apology. The fact that within 24 hours the team discovered and fixed the problem is amazing, and the fact they gave everyone not only an update, but a fatpack is awesome and goes to show that there is good customer service out there iSL.

a lil Review: 5th & Oxford

Over at Fleur, major changes are underway. First, is up is a new name: 5th & Oxford. Second, instead of just skins, Roslin and CJ will be focusing on creating a whole lifestyle line. What does that mean exactly, you ask? According to Roslin, it means the addition of male clothes and furniture. Also, there is a possibility of 5th & Oxford including male skins and prefabs to the new brand.

 

The first release under the re-branding will be their latest skin, Audrey. I didn’t think they would ever be able to beat the Allure skins, but they outdid themselves with Audrey. The skins are absolutely gorgeous and the makeup selections are fabulous! The makeups range from minimum to full on glam styles. Since pictures speak more than words, I will stop rambling now and show you what you really want!
