The Arrival of Black Lipstick

Yesterday, the much anticipated 20th Anniversary Gene Marshall Black Lipstick arrived. I don't think I have ever unpacked and photographed a doll so quickly.

LOVE her facepaint. The makeup seems a bit heavier, more reminiscent of the Integrity days, and that is exactly what I was hoping for. Even the eyelashes seem fuller…still in scale, but thicker. Hey Tonner! Pay attention! Good 16" doll lashes do exist.

My one wish would have been for the skin tone to be a bit lighter; less gray and more milky. Still, she photographs like a dream.

She looks fantastic with raven hair, too. I will definitely be doing a lot more photos of her wearing darker wigs.

What is next for Gene? Who knows, but in this shot she is definitely looking forward to it!

  1. Ooo, cool! I was never a full-on Goth girl, with the makeup, and such, but I have always been fascinated by the idea of that lifestyle, as I am something of a Goth at heart.

    These Gene dolls look like true glamour Goths!
