The Cost of SL Beauty

The Skin Fair starts on the 14th (Sim 1, Sim 2, Sim 3) and while I was going through all 3 sims looking at the pretty skins and makeups, it brought to the forefront an issue I’ve mentioned a few times in this blog: The Cost of SL Beauty in an age of mesh attachments. While looking at the skins available and seeing which looked best on my current face (wearing the new Leia from Anatomy), I also had to pay attention to who had appliers available for the attachments I use (Lolas, Slink and Luck Inc). Changing skins isn’t an easy or cheap prospect so after 3 days of going back to the Fair and trying on demos and going to main stores when needed to check applier prices, here’s my Cost of SL Beauty findings along with a Skin Fair preview.

Please note, these are not all the stores participating in the event nor all the skin tones and options for each skin, but I had to cut myself off at some point! Also note that the price on the vendor is the price you will pay; I make no guarantees for price changes or a faulty calculator. Check all prices before you buy.
