The all over one eye-shadow look. Tut tut Stardoll, I thought you knew better than that. Never wear Red eye-shadow right to the lashline all the way up to your browbone. It’s far too harsh on the eyes unless you add more shading or tones.
The new Dot collection
A very poor collection if I may say so. Usually when a new Dot collection is released I jump up and down with joy but it is getting really tedious now. The whole colour scheme seems repetitive as the only colour or shade we haven’t seen is the Tigerlily Red. Usually Stardoll follows the season trends and normally Spring (Stardoll’s main base is in Sweden which is in the Northern Hemisphere of the Earth) is associated with Florals and washes of Pinks and Yellows and variations of several warm pastel colours and it is Summer that is linked to Neon brights. In this collection I would have liked to see more natural and neutral colours. If any one has seen the Viva Glam MAC Lady Gaga look- that’s what I’m talking about.
My favourites items will probably have to be the Kohl Liners – Techno Goth is my favourite and also the Golden Fleece Lipstick.
The bright blushes are only going to lead to one thing which I absolutely despise in make-up terms . . NODDY BLUSHER! I will rejoice if I finally see the majority of members being able to pull the heavy blusher look with their Medoll and outfit. A light coating is really all you need . . unless it is Costume Drama Make-up or Avant Garde – then you can really go all out.
I’ve been waiting for a natural eye-shadow for some time now – thankfully Stardoll has released the Golden Sunset Eye-shadow.
I have had several ideas for make-up videos but this collection hasn’t really inspired me. I believe the red eye-shadow would have been more helpful if it had been released before Halloween – it could have made it into my old Zombie tutorial. May be with Stardoll focussing on the gorgeous April Hotbuys they’ve forgotten about Dot. Or unless they are planning a surprise make-up new store or *fingers crossed* a new Real Brand of make-up.
It is extremely similar to the previous collection . . although just not to such a high opacity. A little disappointed, I wanted some Red dyes or varied/tinted Blondes.
Overall a poor performance from Stardoll. As I am typing this an Error appears if you try to purchase the Tigerlily eye-shadow.
