Yesterday I said, “I can’t see getting too many appliers…” All I can say to that is LOL. I was super impressed with some of the new appliers, primarily for Catwa heads. I did also pick up some new system skins, but I’ll start with my Skin Fair Top Picks for Catwa in Part I…
In terms of Catwa appliers, I am giving my votes to brands I have never (or rarely) worn. I guess one really needs to branch out with mesh head appliers to mix things up. Bold & Beauty, Modish, Le Forme, Atelier Pepe, and Pink Acid all get the nod from me. However there is such a disparity in price between appliers and what you sometimes have to buy separately to achieve anything beyond a basic look, not to mention body appliers are not always included. You can find yourself paying upwards of $2k for basic appliers when all is said and done :0
Note, if you feel like picking up add-on makeups for eyes and lips, sometimes eye makeups don’t apply consistently, and unfortunately you cannot demo those separate packs. The ones where I found the biggest problem was with the Modish eye makeups, whereas the lip add-ons worked fine. You can play around with the Mask/Blend option, but you’ll find it doesn’t always work.
Most of my new appliers I am using on my Catwa Gwen head, which has really grown on me. I definitely recommend trying skin brands you haven’t before, as it’s like you’re wearing a completely new head, which is kind of the point.
I’ll be covering Fiore appliers and makeups in Part II, I think!
