Just Hope

June 9, 2009

Tuli Hope was released sometime last week but I havn’t had the time to review them till now.. so apologies for the delay. I fell in love with the skin when i first recieved it during blogger’s appreciation week as mentioned in my past entry.  Thank you Tuli for the chance to review them ^^

Overall, Tuli’s Hope comes in 5 skintones, mainly pale, fair, sunkissed, tan and dark tan. The 1st thing I noticed when I put on hope is that it has such a younger and more innocent look as compared to tuli’s other skinlines on my shape. Its most likely due to the slighty more glossy face as compared to faith, her previous skin line. Also, the lips is slightly thinner on hope as compared to faith. The eyebrows comes in the usual 4 shades (black, brown, light and red) to suit all the hair colours you would ever wear including purple(?) XD. Generally, they are rather thin and fine, which is awesome and fitting for this younger and adorable face.

On to the makeup, well my favourite part. Hope comes with 10 makeup, including a natural makeup (which you could get if you join the update group, totally worth to stay in and to pay for XD) The next 2 pictures shows some of the makeup avaliable in the differnt skintones. Note, the 9th makeup is shown in the body shot right below and the 10th, the natural makeup is not shown here.)

As seen above, the makeups are generally natural, nothing over the top. There is also a huge range of makeup offered ranging from the neutral and plainer ones like gig to the glam ones like sultry and gala. My favourites would probably be gig (as it is such a beautiful neutral makeup and gives me the most innocent look out of all the makeups XD), tequilla and summer (its 2 of the 3 makeups avaliable with double colour eyeshadow. YES double colour eyeshadows, everyone should do it! I lurve them so much!). On to the body, the skins have a slight “glow” on it, not too soft, not too hard. Just perfect. Shading and highlighting wise, they are flawless as usual and maintained that soft look that I love on the Tuli skins. Oh, have i mentioned I love the fingernails? They seem to be super realistic and flows flawlessly with the rest of the hand. <3  You would have to teepee to Tuli to take a look at the body yourselves. Hope is my favourite Tuli skin ever and definitely worth a try :)

Of course I cant leave the post with just a skin review. The outfit below is put together as inspired by the skin. *aka, the skin and makeup was chose 1st XD* The look is kept rather simple. While shopping today, I found this awesome Japanese store, Spica, which offers a selection of jewellry and clothes (well they have quite a few socks XD). The chain tie below caught my eye as its the 1st chain tie I ever seen in Sl and its beautifully made. Lurve it! I mentioned freshtrash in my last post earlier today and here I’m spotting one of the jeans that Itny made. The jeans are entirely handdrawn and is perfection. The socks layer instead of a prim is a stroke of genius, allowing the jeans to have the look that its too long for our AVs. This is indeed a breathe of fresh air. The jewellery, both earrings and bangle is from the creator’s pavilion sale. The earrings might not be visible in the picture but woahh, you have to check it out. It is slightly oriental, such as the stone at the top of the earring which reminds me of one of those precious stones I see in the jewellery shops.

On the last note, the fashion expo begins today! :D
