Integrity Toys' Excellent 2015 NuFace Collection

Long anticipated by NuFace collectors, the 2015 collection went live for W Club members on Saturday, June 27. The designers did a great job providing adorable outfits with accessories on attractive dolls. There are no weird hair bumps or outlandish eyeshadow colors to contend with. The collection is focused and stylish.
Each outfit comes with a jacket, handbag and simple jewelry. A lot of black was used but black is always in style. If I were a NuFace collector I'd definitely be ordering Erin and Nadja. I would like to have Giselle's dress and Nadja's top and skirt for my Monogram dolls. 
I don't remember seeing a closed edition of 1000 in a long time. Giselle must be the one they expect to wow the crowd. I think they may have underestimated the popularity of Nadja. 
What's your opinion? Will you be ordering any of these gals? Which ones?

  2. Love them all! But due to the limited space, ordered:
    Giselle - she looks really good, somehow I have always pictured Giselle as brunette, as opposed to the Agnes who I always pictured as blonde, love her outfit, short jacket, top and make up, lovely!
    Dominique - I already have three fr2 Dominiques, so I didn't plan getting another one, but woww I love her, just zoom in those sexy green eyes and blond hair, amazing, love Gucci like boots, very striking, so no second thoughts.
    Erin - I was indecisive, I like her lips (if white will bother me, I will fill the gap with slightly darker red and she will look great) and cream makeup, nice eyebrows, love the hair as well, but her outfit gave me second thoughts... The seam on the top is right under the lips, that bothers me, the pants are OK, but the jacket could have been better, They could gave it color or more details.

    I did not order Nadja, do not collect dark AA dolls, so more for the other collectors as she is super popular, however I like her outfit! The jacket is inspired by Balmain 2015, but I see it as a copy of Jason Wu's jacket from the World on a String Eugenia. Ayumi is nice as well, but she looks boring with sooo much grey on her, and she looks too much like convention one, so I passed on her (might regret it).

    I would like to hear your thoughts on them!

    1. I wrote my thoughts in the first paragraph of this post.

  3. I love this collection! A lot of people think they look too old but I 100% disagree. I think they look youthful and trendy but still really fashionable and believable as young twenty-something models (well minus Dominique). I think they've struck the right balance of older than the DGs but younger than FR.

    I, too, think they may have underestimated the popularity of Nadja as she was the first to sell out at most dealers. I also enjoy her refreshed sculpt as well. Her, Erin and Colette, in my opinion, looked a bit too cartoony in their previous versions so I'm excited about their new potential. I will say that I wasn't too fond of the Erin they showed at convention but I think she's really cute here. Ayumi is similar to her previous version but honestly, I don't mind it. I think I am going to remove her lipstick and replace with it with a more nude color. Dominique is gorgeous, her cheekbones are to die for! I'm not a fan of Giselle in general so she was an easy pass. I ordered the rest!

    Overall, I think this was a strong collection. I do understand people's disappointment with not seeing the other characters since we just saw Domo, Ayumi and Erin at Gloss, however, I'm sure they'll be popping up sometime this year. I wish IT would find another hair style. The side part with the long ringlet curls is starting to get annoying. I wish at least one of the girls had a nice, sleek bob or something.

    1. IT seems to have a problem with short hair - male and female.

  5. Hi Terri, I've wanted to let you know for a while now that I really enjoy your column and appreciate the up-to-date news you always provide, especially when a new collection like this arrives! Because you posted about the Nu Face collection a couple of days ago, I was able to get Nadja before she sold out, as well as Dominique (I'm definetly becoming a W club member next year!). I've been collecting for a relatively short period of time (4 years), and your column is one of my go-to sources on a daily basis. I may not alway agree with your opinion about the dolls, but I always respect it and look forward to reading it. I started posting my collection to Flickr this year (https://flic.kr/s/aHsk63YyvZ), and have come to enjoy the photography aspect as much as the collecting. Keep up the great work!

  6. I've ordered them all, because all the clothes and accessories are great. The new version of the Nu-face body is also very nice, slightly more rounded but not as big as the FR2 and nice to sew for.

  7. I like the collection as a whole, more so the fashions than the dolls this time around. Not that any of them were bad, just not moved by most of them. :) I did go for Ayumi. Nadja was really tempting but I'm trying to stick to just one doll per collection... oy! Being on the club mailing list is dangerous!

  8. I love them they look so cohesive and stylish, but wait, the DG are discontinued? I haven't heard anythingo about them :/

  9. This line is absolutely terrific! While there are some details I would change, I really like the outfits overall. They are quite different from the other Integrity clothing I own/have seen; that is quite important for me.

    My lineup is quite fluid, but right now it is (starting with my favorite): Nadja, Dominique, Erin, Giselle, and Ayumi.

    A few of the minuses:

    * I agree with Anonymous that the hair on the side look is being overdone. It should join the ponytail as either being retired for a while or used sparingly. Because they are distinctive looks, they shouldn't be used on two (or more) dolls in one collection. I like more variety.

    * Storm hit it on the nose that Ayumi is too gray in sum, and too much like the convention doll in part. However, I love the outfit. She's worth getting for it, and perhaps I'll either sell the doll or use it for some experimentation. So many people seem to do it and have fun with it. :-)

    * I wanted to like Giselle more than I do, but she comes off as a bit mild. Maybe giving her eyebrows the same arch they did for Sensuous Affair (she's my only Giselle, and one of my favorite Integrity dolls) would have made the difference. I like the hair color and style.

    Some of the good:

    * Nadja is absolutely stunning. I fell in love from the first W Club email. The crop tops she and Erin are modeling give them an edge, and I much prefer this to the plunging necklines that expose the breast joint.

    * Dominique's outfit may be my favorite, and the hair color they selected sets everything off beautifully. Had she a better hair style, she may have been my top choice.

    * Once again, they've included beautiful bags and coats. Those kinds of decisions can make or break a collection because they add interest and may tip some customers into the "buy" column. Giselle could have used a pop of color somewhere on her coated look, though.

    This release is continuing what looks like an outstanding year of Integrity dolls!

  10. Naja was the winner of this lot for me. I think she is gorgeous, and ended up getting 2 of her as I was afraid one dealer might not be able to come through. I love her beautiful face, her fashion, her BOOTS and love that she comes with a cute bag AND Jacket.

    I got Erin too. I thought her face was pretty and like her fashion and accessories too. Her hair isn't my favorite though. Don't love the color- I wish it had been black maybe.

    I think Ayumi is gorgeous- love her new sculpt and I think her outfit is really cool too. I did skip her though since I have a similar looking Ayumi already, and need to save for Coven and Jem!

    I think Dominique is beautiful- I truly love her fashion and boots and jacket and dress... but the doll isn't gripping me. Maybe it is the color or style, or maybe her makeup. Normally I would have grabbed her but since I have to make choices, I skipped this one.

    I ended up getting Giselle. I love her fashion and her hair. I don't love her makeup, but it's not terrible, just not great. Maybe it can be adjusted (I think it's the lipstick I don't like...)

    1. Thank you for your comments. Are many sold out now?

    2. I believe she sold out everywhere quite fast (although nothing like the competitive Poppy dolls)

  11. The only doll I've ordered is Giselle as she is the only original facemold.

    I prefer original Nadja, Ayumi, Erin and Collette.

    Dominique is gorgeous, but I don't think she belongs in NF line.
    I would have ordered if she were on FR2 body.

    1. If you are asking when they ship out- the email from Integrity said late fall/early winter- so my guess is late this month or next month. But they haven't given us an update so it's impossible to say.

    1. Dealers confirm that 3 of the dolls will arrive in a couple weeks- Nadja, Erin and Ayumi. Too bad they aren't coming together. I am not loving Integrity's new factory, but hopefully there won't be so many defects...

    2. I'm waiting on Nadja. I hope she's a keeper.

  15. Hi Terri, I ordered Nadja too, and Dominique. I hope they're both keepers, really liked the versions from the Cinematic convention! :-)
