Taking a moment to answer some common customer questions…!

Hi there. =)

Santana Lumiere (me!) has been a content creator in Second Life since early 2004 under the store name Nevermore.  As a designer, I get a wide range of comments from customers, both appreciative and complaints.  This is common place and all of it taken  into consideration for future products.   I would like to take a moment to field some comments I have amassed over the years and hope this helps those who are new to perusing La Boheme products.   This article will later appear as a permanent page for future access.

La Boheme’s Annual Year- End Sale 2016

la-boheme-year-end-sale-2016

That’s right, folks.   The end of the year is nearly here, and that means everything at the La Boheme shop is going on sale for 60% off again!  The sign says it all, the shopping crusade begins December 15th and it will be your chance to scoop up all the loot you can possibly carry.  Also, there’s plenty of freebie gifts awaiting you at the store should you not mind Santa bringing you a present or three.  Gift previews can be seen in previous blog posts here.  Get your shopping shoes on!

Please be aware that due to prim restrictions, all of La Boheme’s items are in vendor machines at the in-world shop.  Please be courteous to other shoppers and don’t horde four at a time, ok?  Ok!   Also, the vendors are super simple to use – click any thumbnail image on the window and it will set it to the larger central image – click that to buy the item(s) of your choice.  A first for us, Talus has endeavored to spread the holiday cheer and set the sale prices on all our items on the marketplace, too!

La Boheme @ The Cosmetic Fair

That’s right, folks, the Cosmetic Fair is back and La Boheme will be in it!  This rounds theme  is the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year which is really two unalike colors merged together.  The following cosmetic faces are our response to the challenge beset upon us, and each one is only $35.

The Cosmetic Fair will run from March 15th -31st.  I will put a taxi link in here closer to the date. =)

La Boheme – Mad March Hunt

This cosmetic face will set you back a whole $1 through the Mad March Hunt which is going on right now!  Visit my shop and find the green penguin to obtain these special edition colors. Package includes everything listed just in time for St. Patty’s Day! These are tattoo layer cosmetics for classic SL avatars. Hints can be retrieved from the owls at the events wall.

La Boheme @ The Skin Fair 2016

It’s a bit early, but I wanted to give you a nice tease.  La Boheme will have a stall at the 2016 Skin Fair which runs from March 11 – 27. I will do another post closer to its time with a taxi link for yas ‘n whatnot, but here are the products to paw and oogle. <3 Each set will be $50 for the duration of the event and there are 8 eyeshadow sets, 4 lip sets and 4 eyebrow sets. All products are no transfer,  the lips and brows are modifiable for tinting purposes. For classic SL avatars only!

La Boheme – Eyebrows!

The big fad in SL and RL right now are very thick eyebrows. That I comb through volumes of inspirational images to create my cosmetics, I see 10,000 internet socialites painting on brows twice as thick as their own and walking around like Joan Crawford sans a wire hanger in hand (most of them attempting to resemble Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner, I swear there is a clone war going on out there!).

In a galaxy far, far away I used to make skins (for those who haven’t been around as long, I was one of the first five skin makers in SL, but that is another story). After having deleted my entire store back in 2014, I decided to focus on nails and cosmetics only.  I make use of a lot of tattoo layer cosmetics, and eyebrows are among them. Thus far, however, the brows you find in my shop are not “natural” brows.  These are lending the illusion of the “Kim Kardashian brow fad;” painting the eyebrow outside of the lines with sharp contouring and subtle blending a the inside corners.  I am in the process of expanding my brow line and cranking out more at present for the upcoming Cosmetic Fair in March (they will be $50 a set for the duration of the event).

I do intend to add more natural brows in the future, but unless making them for a specific skin it is difficult to pull off “natural” without shading around and beneath them – the downfall of being a third-party cosmetic creator.  We do what we can and hope, for the most part, that the cosmetics we crafted can be close to universal.  In any case, if you enjoyed my last batch of brows released, stay tuned because I have many more brows coming out soon!

Setting up for the November Cosmetic Fair

Setting up for the Cosmetic Fair in the wee hours of the night, I had some nice, quiet time to myself.  Even though the booth is super simple, a lot of creativity went into it from making the wallpaper to shading everything not nailed down. It’s a strong indication that I miss creating, and with the big nail conversion going on I don’t have much time to create anything unless I put the process on hold so that I can meet prearranged obligations.  That probably means once the conversion is over, I will be going overboard designing stuff.

Take a taxi to The Cosmetic Fair.

La Boheme @ The Cosmetic Fair November Round

Another week to go, but I will give you folks a preview of what La Boheme will be featuring at November’s Cosmetic Fair! I will add a taxi link when I know the exact SLURL.

First, let me show you the dazzling array of OMBRE NAILS!  Huzzuh.  I have been promising these for a while, so I am really excited to set these out for everyone – and yes there ARE Maitreya pedicures in these (any set I make which has no design on them will have the Maitreya pedicures, just an FYI). There are actually twenty-six sets of these, and I have paired them up into double sets which you can totally scoop up for a mere $50 each.  One version will be glossy, the other is glass per each set.  …And you folks wondered how I come up with so many Ombre backdrops –  now you can own them to match with my polishes so you don’t have the same design on all hands and feet!

Here we have four more sets of the new La Boheme Glamour Brows being launched.  These are for SL classic avatars and can be worn alone or together, three possible depths of strength to play around with, and a lot of tintable layers to make a good match for whatever hue you want.  You can also find four more Kissable Lips sets there in ombre style.  All of these are only $50 for the duration of the event. <3

La Boheme @ We Love Role Play November Round

Lots of goodies to be found on sale for $50 each at my stall @ We <3 RP this month, plus a gift for $1.

Circe is our newest eyeshadow for the classic SL avatar. It comes in six possible sets of different colors and variations.  Then we’ve four more editions for the Kissable Lips line!  Yus, this lip line, as quoted by a customer, “does not wear like an addon, it works seamlessly!”  Love that lip. =D  Also three mehndi face paint sets are out, and you know you just have to get those!

La Boheme has kicked off Glamour Brows!  So far these are for the classic SL avatar only, and each set includes sparse and thicker, painted versions – or wear both together for a strong brow definition!  They are all tintable, with some base color options as well as grays for more versatile tinting.  There’s three of them here this month. =)
