Love Nikki – Why are Dark Makeups SO HARD TO GET!

February 10, 2020

before we dive into the video remember
to Like comment and subscribe because it will help my channel a lot
and I’ll appreciate you guys a lot for doing so so who here feels snubbed or
scammed even though you didn’t buy anything
this was the Facebook post that advertised for the make up recipes for
this particular make up the original suit that this make up came from was
from dusk and dawn and she looks like this over here stunning I love how the
background is animated how she has different eyes so this is actually what
I considered an affordable do for Jingle Kitty because Jingle Kitty had the
cutest makeup that I really wanted oh do I not have jingle kitty okay turns out I
don’t have jingle kitty but jingle Kitty had the cutest makeup because one of the
eyes was blue and the other eye was yellow and I love that a lot so when
dusk and dawn came I was really excited because that meant that I had a chance
to get a makeup with just diamonds like I didn’t have to real-life currency so
this was an amazing suit to have and it’s really fun to play with and
recently as you saw love Nicki developers advertised for the makeup of
this one where there would be darker skin tones that we could have crafted
everybody was so excited because we don’t come by dark makeups a lot usually
they’re quite expensive but before I continue on with that can you guys guess
how many dark skin tones or dark skin tone outfits we have on love Nicki I’ll
give you three seconds to guess one two three there are 11 so modern clean was
from the Barbie event and guess what it’s exclusive it’s limited so that
means if you didn’t get it when you had the event then too bad you don’t have a
chance to ever get it again and I think that’s so dumb because it’s actually one
of the prettiest makeups that I’ve seen in game like look how pretty she is
stunning absolutely stunning and then we had the space fantasy one and guess what
again it was also limited so these two makeups you can’t even get anymore so
that’s 2 out of the 11 gone so now we’re left with 9 and the next one we have are
from Apple Kingdom it’s our very iconic Street extreme one which I love so much
it’s so cute love the bubblegum love her skateboard and her cat
– I also love hip-hop queen she is just fierce in her own way
so definitely ten out of ten I was so excited when I crafted her these city
can craft with diamonds right now another Apple suit that we had was youth
storm and everybody’s familiar with this one because this is one of the first
suits and first items you get in the game for this one I remember her to be
kind of expensive but what I did like about her was her makeup again her
makeup was honestly breathtaking I love the turquoise / green in her eye she’s
currently unavailable to crack right now so that’s three makeups out of the
eleven darker skin tones oh it’s that we don’t moving along we
have more wasteland suits so these ones you can still craft it’s phantom and
desert and golden shadows so I was kind of annoyed trying to find this in the
wardrobe because I recall seeing them like I remember seeing darker skin tones
but when I went to wasteland I saw her which was fine then I was just
like huh where are they I can’t find them because I was trying to filter out
any lighter skin tones and then I realized that this one they made her
lighter skin tone the default but I saw where it was originally like this like
if you went to your wardrobe you would have seen her like this for her same
thing it just baffles me and then this one was a reach charge so if you were a
v-0 player than you would be unable to get this so that’s technically kind of
for ish makeups out of the eleven now we have star fantasy and it’s one of my
favorite suits ever she’s so cute she has the coolest hairstyle I love all her
background items and her pose is absolutely adorable I have to admit
though everybody had kind of an issue with her because the more you look at
her the weirder she looks as and her makeup is already weird to begin with it
didn’t matter if it was light or dark skinned like her makeup in general was
kind of weird because she had a cat-like vibe but the same with the darker skin
tone over here it’s that I am almost certainly used a blue or grayish
undertone so it made her look kind of chalky and I personally don’t think that
it looked like it looks good and with the very few selection of darker skin
poses that we have this makeup is practically impossible to use unless you
either use this pose or you just use the normal pose which is kind of boring so
her normal clothes would be this one okay yikes she didn’t even get underwear
but you get what I mean and the very very last suit that we have is another
ruined set and she’s called humanoid source code so she has been afk for the
longest time like I didn’t even remember that this was a thing in the events
format that came with it was actually atrocious it was so bad the concept was
terrible it was so confusing the majority of people who I talked to just
didn’t like it at all she’s spicy in her own way but we don’t
even know when she’ll come back and I’m pretty sure it’s been over a year since
this event has taken place so if I could just check my channel real quick you can
see that the last time and the only time it came to our server was an August 4th
or around that time period 2018 it’s so sad because that’s like five or six
makeups that people can’t get and the fact that they kind of advertised it as
like oh we can get free makeup recipes but you kind of assume that if you have
a makeup at the very least you would be able to get ingredients that didn’t cost
diamonds so people are saying that it’s fair to make it cost diamonds I will
agree with you guys part of the ways I think that if they wanted to give us
recipes the best thing to do would be to give us a recipe where one of the
ingredients is actually the dusk and dawn makeups to begin with instead of
having cloud lady we would swap her out and then we would change it so that you
would have the original makeup there and then you can just craft another one and
another one and another one so that way it would be fair to everybody as and you
would have to spend diamonds to craft the makeup originally you would just
spend some extra coins to just make the other version of the set but honestly
they would never do that it just kind of sucks that if you want
these three beautiful makeups you’d have to spend a thousand freaking diamonds on
it so not to be a complete hater I want to say that I appreciate love Nicki
developers for actually trying to make new makeup or go back to old makeup and
giving us more variety this reminds me of the time where they actually had a
fan-made makeup be available for us for free in the game and this makeup was
actually the prettiest thing I’ve seen she has gold freckles like wow it’s so
nice and it was free completely free and thank you to jungkook on
soup and her Instagram tag is T tale of Nikki she let me know that mock to fire
was actually in the works of getting more of makeup just like the dusk and
dawn makeup so if you check in your wardrobe over here in the scroll all the
way down to the bottom and then you can see that there are darker skin tones for
this makeup and this makeup is also one of my favorite makeups in the game it’s
so pretty she is absolutely stunning but I have a feeling that she’s going to
have to cost diamonds again and it’s just so unfortunate if that’s the case
like look how beautiful this makeup is a lot of people might think it’s like oh
it’s not a paywall like you’re spending diamonds and you can collect diamonds
but think about how much diamonds it is that’s like 300 something diamonds per
makeup and if you want all three that’s a thousand diamonds and to buy a
thousand diamonds to begin with it’s around thirty dollars Canadian times tax
if you wanted to save up as a v-0 player it’s hard to save up to a thousand
diamonds without skipping four or five events I personally think that this is a
paywall if they’re going to try to make make ups more inclusive they should also
make it more inclusive money-wise but yeah that’s what I think invest my
solution I would love to hear all your guys’s thoughts in opinions in the top
comment for the previous video is from Susu Susu and it actually relates so
much to this video because she refers to me saying that it’s low-key a scam that
they made it or they advertised the MCOs for free when it technically it was only
the recipes but yeah thank you for watching I will start picking the top
comments again I know I kind of miss one from the ranking video so I’m just gonna
put that over here it’s from winter wolf and for sure boys
meet diverse hair selection both in color and style and I think that they
should apply in the sense where darker skin tones should have more versatile
and more variety imposes in general so yeah if you like my content remember to

    If we already own the original make up we shouldn’t have to pay with diamonds for the darker versions, that is unfair 😡

  • Reply blackandredteddybear February 6, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    In my honest opinion about this issue is how they did it. They gave everyone free makeup recipes. The weird thing is they used Cloud Lady instead of the original makeup and other pieces that cost 336 diamonds.
    Also, the reason why they are usually behind a pay wall is that is for more money since CN sever didn't ask for it. That's a theory.
    I didn't buy the makeups because I don't like them that much. But, I appreciate of the accessible of them. Also, Moth of Fire is so beautiful and in it's different color skin tone. 😍

  • Reply Dark Nimie February 6, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    So, as a V0 player (I'm against using real money for this kind of games.I must resist!!!) I think spending SO MANY diamonds for this 3 make-ups isn't really worthy. I had to skip 3 events so I could save 2400 diamonds more or less (But with the cupid's outfit now I have only 1500 :,) ), and knowing that a HUGE hell event is coming I think is better to save up as much as I can so I can get at least one outfit.

    They should make all makeups with a transparent base, so they could work on all skin tones.

    The comments at the end reminded me that we need dark skin boy makeup. I know this is a Chinese franchise for mainly girls but I love boy/man outfits and unisex outfits too, and some variation in skin color where the makeup looks masculine would be so nice.

  • Reply Noah Reed February 6, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    That comment in the end made me realise we also need darker skin boys! Back to the makeup issue, these make-ups do cost the same as the original, however, considering how little make-up options we have for darker skin tones these or some other on top of these make-ups should've been given for free. Additionally, they should also be in the main story, in the store for coins and for diamonds, in the weekly comp store, in stylist's arena etc. Also, bringing back some past events and make-ups might be the thing to do for right now; like offering the fan made make-up for free again. In the future, make exclusive darker skin tone poses or make it so the poses are for every skin tone. I'd honestly love if you could select the body and change the skin tone rather than it be an "accessory" and don't assign them attributes. This could be kept for unnatural skin tones if they really want, like the purple translucent skeleton one.

  • Reply angwa _ February 6, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Something they should do is just put the make up on a transparent png or jpeg so that it can work with all skin tones, it’s a really simple solution and it’s pretty annoying

  • Reply Darling-Dolly-Darlene February 6, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    I 100% agree with you, if you already own the makeup you shouldn't have pay 900 diamonds just to own the alternate skins, also wow I never realized there were so few dark makeups! I'm v5 and I only have three!

    All of this probably wouldn't be much of a problem if love nikki made faces transparent , I'm not sure how hard that'd be to do, but it seems like a simple solution

  • Reply ny-ny Domino February 6, 2020 at 11:19 pm

    this hits different as a black love nikki player. Every day is a fight for equality. Why not just have transparent makeups? It would make it easier for them too but money dmh6

  • Reply UwU OwO February 6, 2020 at 11:53 pm

    I feel scammed as well but at least they put the makeups along with a consumption event. It would have been even worse if they just gave them to us at random. Also remember that the original makeup costs diamonds so I don't know if it would be fair to players who spent diamonds on the suit. What I think they should've done is give players who have the makeup already the different color makeups but players who don't have the suit can get each for about 50 diamonds. But hey they did advertise all makeups as free so I get why people are mad.

  • Reply B Peoples February 7, 2020 at 2:08 am

    Someone else said it in the comments, but it's not cool how darker skin tones are 1) ACCESSORIES and 2) often labeled "sexy". darker skin is not inherently sexy, and that's actually a very negative association that has plagued black women for many years.
    To be honest, I don't think the skin tones should have style tags. Because it's not like makeup that make you look younger, alluring, dramatic etc. It's skin.

  • Reply B Peoples February 7, 2020 at 2:18 am

    Another thing, it feels they've started offering a light version of darker suits/makeups, as if to say, psh yea you might not like that, here's the "normal" version.
    It would be nice if all suits came with deep skin counterparts. That would also make the game so so much more creative.
    It would be nice if the next big update was the gift of deep skin variations of existing makeups.

  • Reply 1VampieNight February 7, 2020 at 2:41 am

    I'm glad they made the makups in the darker skintones. But I wish they had made it in all of the skintones. I use the tone that looks most like me most of the time and I LOVE this makeup but it isn't available. Also I wish they had made the original pose that the makeup came with available in the darker skintones. It's like they are trying but they could do so much better!!!

  • Reply Zarbonzo February 7, 2020 at 3:45 am

    They're so expensive because LN devs picked make ups that cost diamonds which is disappointing. I'm not super upset about the ones that have been released costing diamonds because it makes sense for those particular make ups to cost what they do. But I think they could do some gold ones like Peach Sweatheart or make new ones entirely that don't cost diamonds/money that could be in the user shop. Tbh I really think they are making dark skinned make ups cost so much because of the high demand for them on our server which is frustrating. They are figuring people will want them anyway so might as well make money off it.

  • Reply ravewithyou February 7, 2020 at 5:32 am

    I love your idea for making the recolors of the makeup more accessible and still fair. I mean, I paid for the original makeup with diamonds so that should be enough. I might crumble for the Moth to Fire recolors though because I love that makeup so much. TvT

  • Reply Princess Scarlet 2 February 7, 2020 at 5:39 am

    If they had them as completion rewards, then for those who don't have the suit, they'd have to craft the entire suit to get them, which would cost even more diamonds.

  • Reply Sandra February 7, 2020 at 11:17 am

    I own almost none of the dark skin make up we have available to get right now cause I'm not gonna craft a suit only for the make up that's usually a completion prize.
    Almost 1k for all of those makeups we just got is laughable.

    The only dark suit you forgot was the Modern Age suit where they remade the original in a darker skin tone. It costed real money, though.

  • Reply IceQueen975 February 8, 2020 at 3:06 am

    If the original makeup cost dias to craft, it should cost dias to craft the darker skintones. It would be illogical for the other skintones to be free. The only other logical option is to "dye" the original makeup though it would consume the original makeup like with all other clothes if you only have 1 of the item.

    I’m worried that moth to flame darker skins might only be available if you get the original suit cus moth to flame is only available after getting most of her suit…

  • Reply Elaina February 8, 2020 at 6:28 pm

    Okay so like…I don't understand why people are either upset about it costing diamonds in general, or even surprised. You are crafting…a makeup. Should it have cost as much? Mhhmmm…maybe not. This is also the first time they have done this, so that also might change. But I don't think I am in the majority here and think it actually all should be 100% free.

    The suit itself wasn't free to begin with, so why should the recolors of the makeup be free? Because almost everything at this point costs so much diamonds? Well of course, diamonds is the main currency in the game. It isn't that surprising…like I said, maybe a price change would be better. I just don't think they should be free either. As someone who doesn't even have the original suit, those are my thoughts on it. And I am sure I am in the minority and that is perfectly fine with me.

    They also keep adding more dark shades but then not adding any makeups for them aside from the one that goes to the suit (like Humanoid Source Code only JUST NOW got an alternate makeup).

  • Reply leylo February 9, 2020 at 11:42 pm

    The devs get absolutely no brownie points from me for this. Literally every single makeup and posed item should be skin tone compatible, free of charge once you own the original. It’s not an unreasonable or unrealistic demand; we know it’s doable so there’s really no excuse.
    It would take time and effort to fix, yeah, I get that, but that’s what you get to deal with when you fuck up.
    Also having real skin tones as ranked items in the accessory section is….really racist to begin with.
    They should remove the tags on all natural skin tones altogether, and if they feel like they must replace that slot with something, make it something like ‘skin overlays’ or instead. Examples of this could include the puppet/broken puppet skins (transparent so they go with all tones) as well as the spooky purple skeleton skin. But there could be so much more?? Give us weird, otherworldly stuff. Give us green and blue and purple. Give us neons and pastels. Give us body glitter. Hell, get creative, give us a metallic robot skin with nuts and bolts?? The possibilities are literally endless. Put tags on those weird things all you want, but don’t put them on people’s actual real life skin tones. Do put them in the game, but don’t be so damn weird about it, it’s not hard to understand????
