Nikon's "movie star" look vs Fuji's Asian look?

Which one do you prefer?

I call it Nikon's "movie star" look because of the SOOC jpeg skin tone looks like it has a ton of "make up" on, like a movie star

When i had my D7000 I would usually had to perform in-camera custom white balance with my external WB disk to try avoiding skin tones like the last photo bellow. Only like that i was able to achieve a decent look. But the fuji's WB and skin tones definitely look WAY BETTER and very different.

The Fuji SOOC jpeg looks much nicer and i notice this soft "asian" look to the photos. The jpeg photos are different from what i am use to seeing coming from nikon after some years, and they are still very different from my S5 Pro, but i am starting to like this fuji look more and more. I do like this cute Japanese look out of the fuji, i think i really do.

I think I'm starting to sound like Dr. Seuss: "Say! I like green eggs and ham!
