My last skin review (Leah, Glam Affair) got a lot of interesting comments, so I will try to do a better review this time, and thanks to all the helpful suggestions, I am even trying a new Windlight setting.
This latest skin from Glam Affair is Giselle, and I think a lot of positive changes were made with this skin. First, I noticed right away that the Blonde brows have a lil’ more color to it, closer to what I would normally wear. I also like that the skin is a bit smoother on the face (with less visible pores), but I noticed that there are a lot more random beauty marks placed on the face, along with freckles. I’m a fan of a random beauty mark now and then, but not when it is permanently on the skin (and not on a tattoo layer that can be removed). One of my biggest turn off with this skin, even though I like the face a lot (it’s adorable), is that the highlight seems to be very strong, making the forehead seem White! Although the face is no longer gray, the body of the skin still is gray (to me anyway, although a lot of you guys commented on my last post and said you don’t see gray).
I also noticed the face/body color mismatch problem is most noticeable when zoomed out, on full body photos. Most of my skin reviews shows torso and up, but one of the comments I received last time from a reader, said she wanted me to do more body photos, so here you go! I’m not naked though, but if you want to see the bits, try it on your avatar so you can zoom in super close and check it all out.

I love reviewing skins, but when the review is less than glowing, I feel a lil’ uncomfortable. I want to review to make people happy, not mad at me! But if I couldn’t review skins my way, I would not do them at all. This is why I haven’t reviewed many this year, but a lot of friends encouraged me to keep going.
What I like to do is add tattoo layers to my face to add blush or in this case, I used a highlight layer that’s tintable, to make the highlight LESS bright, then added blush. The images are labeled, so you can see the difference that tattoo layers can make! I personally would wear this skin with all the tats on it — cos it looks better.
For this post, I used Strawberry Singh’s StrawberrySinghDotComCloseUps Windlight setting, just to make sure people do not think that my Windlight setting is “bad” or somehow making the skin look worse. You can download Strawberry’s WL setting on her page, along with a couple of others.
Hope you guys enjoy the review, visit Glam Affair to check out Giselle!
If you have any more suggestions, leave me some comments and I will work it into my next post.
