Chinoiserie

Now trending: chinoiserie. No, not delicate wallpapers or home decor. My dress. From United Colors @Kustom9. It’s one of my recent favorites and my choice to pop back into blogging a little earlier than predicted this week. Shopping and styling relaxes me a lot.

My skin is also new from Milan, and is one of those charming, non air-brushed looks that I really love. While it’s clearly a look I favor (it also reminds me of what I loved so much about Blair from The Skinnery that I have been obsessed with for years), it does have small issues on my shape. Namely, there is some pixelation around the nostrils on my LeLutka Simollian head, so absolutely take a close look when you demo. This skin was specifically made for LeLutka Greer, but as you can see, it works for others too IMO. I really like it.

Penalizing repeat business?

Milan’s pricing has gone up sharply. By almost double in fact. Each single tone pack includes full body appliers for every tone for multiple mesh bodies and Omega. As a result, prices have gone up for the product. However, this isn’t a pricing strategy I support, because it penalizes repeat customers. If you buy one applier, you have no need to buy all the body appliers again and again. If you want to support the creator again, you’ll need to spend another $1900L (!!) for a head applier, which then charges you for all the body appliers again. I can only assume that the creator’s business is based more on one-time sales than repeat customers. But again, it really penalizes anyone who actually wants to collect inventory like I do. Also, there are no makeups included with the skin at all and only one eyebrow color, making it the highest price beauty applier that I have come across in a bit.

This is my opinion on the pricing/packaging and as always, your mileage may vary (YMMV). Obviously I like the skin or I wouldn’t be wearing it.
