Valentine’s Dot. Scandinavian Popshop. Valentine’s Pass.

It certainly seems that the last collection released from Dot was donkey’s ago. I always look forward to make-up releases on Stardoll. The Beauty Parlor can be a very restricting place where one can only do so much before the limits occur or your doll ends up looking like a dog’s dinner. There is not that much freedom involved, unlike in real life. If you want to apply vine-like eyeliner from the corner of your eye down to your cheek there is nothing stopping you – on Stardoll there is.

The colours are very striking, almost flashy without verging on the step of neon. I have had a little taster with the shadows and I have to say they blend extremely well. I usually don’t allow my doll to wear such bright colours but I am finding it pretty simple to just add a thin layer of the bright/dark shadows with a White overlapping as to tone it down. The applicators, in comparison to ordinary Dot products, are stubby and small in size. Perhaps it is down to the fact that I have not had a proper Beauty Parlor session for a while, although I do feel that this new collection’s shadows glide a lot easier than say to Sephora or any other shadows on Stardoll. I prefer the applicators with a smaller stem as I feel like I am in more control of the brush itself.

The packaging of the Valentine’s collection is similar to the colour palette in a sense that it is eye-catching and colourful. I think we tend to associate Valentine’s with dull pinks and rosy reds, so I like the fact that Stardoll went for something a little alternative and adding some energy back into Dot. My favourites are the brow pencils and mascaras. This is mainly due to the fact that Stardoll is adding a different range of colours rather than re-introducing the usual norms.

This collection doesn’t deserve the “Dark-shadow-on-the-outer-corners-main-colour-swamps-the-rest-of-the-entire-eyelid” treatment, however I am tired. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves when folks create tutorials where they use this exact same format over and over again. Add some funky liner – mix it up!

My first play-around. One of the great qualities of this collection is that it isn’t just solely for Valentine’s day. It isn’t all pink fluff. You can actually make some really unique looks using the variety of bold reds and pinks, as well as the darker tones of blue and purple.

 

It’s sleek, classic and simplistic. These are the kind of items you are most likely to find in your own home. It’s not outlandish and the prices aren’t over the top.

Stardoll are stealing our money again! The greedy $?%*#@!!!

Seriously I couldn’t care. Every time a pass or something that basically “benefits” paying members is released we, as a whole community, start verbally attacking our doll’s makers. I personally do not believe that offering a good deal to members is greedy. You do not need to buy it. It is just there if you want it. What I would call greedy: If I paid Stardoll £5 for 1 month membership and they only decided to give me two weeks (even if that is unlawful) or even charging far more than £5.

These passes are good for overall deals. My membership was running out and I felt like my Stardollar count was broken so I thought I may as well. As I am (hopefully) attempting to gradually separate from the five year long attachment between Stardoll and myself, I haven’t made things easier.

I am completely in the dark when a new Youtube video will be made. Teachers speak of up and coming assessments, however there are no specific dates so I cannot plan ahead. To make things up I may just post another Make-up In Real Life entry. I also have circle lenses arriving tomorrow so it would be lovely to review them at some point in time.

Tatty byes!

Stardoll Refund for Perfect Day Glitch

Just received this mail from Stardoll:

A refund? From Stardoll?

Never did I think this would happen.

Stardoll I could kiss you right now. Even though it was only 10 Stardollars for myself, on the Royalty Club there were members with a loss of over 200 Stardollars. Imagine how those girls must be feeling right now.

Free Perfect Day Items are not free . .

WARNING: DO NOT BUY ANY OF THE FREE ITEMS. IT SAYS THEY COST 0 STARDOLLARS ALTHOUGH THEY WILL CHARGE YOU YOUR STARDOLLARS.

I got there on time, although I was charged for one top.

UPDATE: I also found these two veils for 0 Stardollars

 

This is probably a glitch so Stardoll could fix this in the next hour or so.

To receive these free items, visit Starplaza and click on the New Tab and items should be on the First and Second Page. Some of the items you will have to use Starplaza Search, just search individual colours and the freebies should appear.

 

The majority of items are for Superstars only.

Perfect Day Items Release

Thanks to Ericka for letting me know – the store has been released.

As Ericka also pointed out – the last dress on the last floor really does remind us of a previous December 2010 Hotbuy . .

The Hotbuys Gown was actually 18 Stardollars, while the Perfect Day version altogether (Top, Shoulders and Skirt separate) cost 30 Stardollars. So sometimes it is worth while buying expensive Hotbuys, for a change. I actually prefer the Perfect Day version, the colours are a lot more softer and I like the small pattern on the skirt.

The store is expensive. You can purchase a Carriage for a whooping 48 Stardollars and a window for 27 Stardollars. I’m not sure if that is Westminster Abbey (Where William and Catherine will be married) in the background or just an ordinary church.

Overall I think the dresses and items are beautiful – just a little costly.

Many members purchased the “0 Stardollar” items and now have been charged, best thing to do is contact Stardoll with a complaint and with your reference code. I doubt they’ll ever give us refunds, I really doubt it. Then there’ll be an outrage.

Also an interior has been released in the SuiteDecor Shop at 20 Stardollars.

New Store in Starplaza coming soon? Perfect Day

Stardoll posted this on the Official Stardoll Blog:

http://stardollblog.com/2011/04/08/save-the-date-for-the-newest-store-in-starplaza/

Starting on Monday, April 11th, your dream weddings will come true! Prince William and Kate are tying the knot soon—and we’re giving you the chance to  say “I do” in the most fashionable of ways too!
Create amazing ceremonies and even more incredible dresses with our offerings in Perfect Day, the latest shop in Starplaza. Celebrate your wedded bliss in Parties, and don’t forget to check out the Spotlight page for an exciting contest!

So is this why Voile is on sale?

Seems exciting and due to the Royal Wedding I have a day off school. I’ve seen the spoilers on USD and look beautiful and elegant – fit for a princess. It’s not all pink, lace and ruffles. I even spotted a Union Jack top hat.

I believe that the perverted members of Stardoll who parade around in Parties, will take advantage of these “Wedding Parties” and turn it into something absolutely disgusting and ruin the momentous day. There are special websites out there suited to their desires and Stardoll isn’t one of them.

I’m not too excited about all of this. With all these Epiphany floors and Pet-a-Porter, does anybody seriously have any Stardollars left? I don’t think I’ve spent so much since the last season of Limited Edition clothing.

Free Valentine’s Interior – if you make a purchase . .

Received this in my Stardoll inbox:

Typical Stardoll.

First we have the Valentine Gift-o-meter, Penthouse Offer and now this.

I genuinely really love this interior, and even though I hardly ever decorate my Suite it could come in handy in the future. Plus I’ve been needing to top up on Stardollars anyway xD.

Think it’s pretty greedy that Stardoll are doing this just in the name of Valentine’s day. I thought it was the day of love between companions? Such a sad sight to see Stardoll giving out selfish offers out just as an excuse because it’s a special day.

Well on a happier note, Happy Valentine’s Day!

17th Day of Stardoll Holiday Calendar. Mini Confetti Print and Gold Skull Necklace.

Good prices = Bargain!

The skirt is only for Superstars. You know I really don’t understand the point in this. Sure Superstars pay for these privileges but when it comes to the Holiday season I would really expect Stardoll to create this calendar with items that are available to Non-Superstars and Superstars. Also I have to apologise to people on Chat, my internet is being really strange tonight (probably due to bad weather conditions) and it keeps cutting off every 10 minutes or so. I hate internet issues.
