Sorry about the long title, I couldn't think how to describe this in less words.

In a nutshell: I made the basic shades of these lovelies for my male sims, they're meant to reshape the lips and give them distinct shapes that you can't get with the basic Maxis face edit.
They were each made for a specific person.
On top of that we've got completely shear lip color for the ladies/effeminate dudes, lip liner to match, and a lip gloss. These files are multi-layerable with eachother and with all other lipsticks.
This means that not only can you keep your lip shape when you go to your prom, or drag show; you could potentially add texture, gloss, shape, or color to any other lipsticks you happen to have.
I'm already tired of the word "lipsticks". Blech.

Frankly, I'm more into the basic, flesh lipstick than the colors and whatnot. But if there's one thing I know about the internets, the people here love shiny. Hopefully I'm not the only one into the rest of it.


Each rar contains three basic colors for each skintone, 4 colors (a red, a dark color, a brighter orangeish, and a really pale color), 4 liners to match, and a gloss that layers over the top.





Model C:

Note that the liners are all pictured on top of their appropriate color. They are separate in actuality.

These are based off of pretty much the grooviest lips ever. This shape only happens when lips are really, really poofy. These lips are so poofy, it's warped the shape of the line between the lips. I could talk about this for hours, but I know you're only interested in the pictures.
Poofy, not very wide, well defined edges.
Good for sims who need some roundness about the mouth.




Model K:

This is a pretty smooth set of lips, very little crinkly-bits.
The corners turn down and sort of... square off. Tis typical of the Asian mouth.
These lips are clean cut. I don't mean sober, they have a clean shape is all. There's a well defined line down the middle of the upper lip, and the bottom lip is well defined with an emphasis on a rectangular prism-ish shape.
I'm sorry if this isn't making any sense. I have my own lingo for this stuff.
Just look at the pretty pictures.



Model T:

These are my favorites. They are the pretty.
You have to at least take a look at them. <3
These lips kill the harsh edges. Especially on the bottom lip and at the two peaks at the top. The corners of the mouth have a dimpley thing going on, they turn up just a little. This will give your sim a wider mouth, and slightly thinner lips. It also puts a shadow under the lower lip, just a tad, for an even more realistic lower lip shape.
These are just a little pinker than you're average sim lips.


A few closing notes:

Pictures of the lipgloss/lipsticks together can be found below.

Each color will layer with the other different colors. But if you had two sets, say T and C. The two red colors will not be able to be worn at the same time. I did that for my own sanity, there's no reason to wear two reds anyhow. If you desperately want another 20000 layering options feel free to SimPE it out yourself. All that copy/pasting makes me dizzy.

One lip liner, and one gloss can be worn at one time. Same dealio applies.

Liners and base lips have been left on layer zero. Most of the time they layer under all other custom and maxis lipsticks.
Color is layer 1, for happy coloring of all custom and maxis shtuff.
Gloss is layer 2, for happy glossinessing of all lips.

Apologies that I didn't get pictures of all the combinations. There's... I've forgotten my pre-calc, so we'll just call it a freaking lot.

If any one gives a rip, these are all entirely hand drawn. Or as hand drawn as one can get via computer. It's not like... crayon. That would be a trip.
My hand was holding a pen and the tablet beamed the drawing in, yeah? You get it.


CC in the pictures:

Idolatry of the flesh skin by Hysterical Paradoxysm
"Gale brows" and clothings by fanseelamb
"brighteyes" by shady
"pungback" hair by sizz
And the black hair on Chris is by XM Sims

The rest, and the "models" are mine.
I find it odd to call them models somehow...

If you feel the need to do anything with my textures, give me a ring, we'll have tea, and you'll probably get my blessing.

I like 'em! Ive too noticed how hard it is to give your sims unique lips, the detail is overlooked often. Thank you.

I like the nude lip / liner / color / gloss system you've made. Although I have plenty for ladies, it's always nice to have more options for the guys, and I've been wanting layerable gloss. So thanks!

QUESTION: Do the glosses layer well with any lipstick? That is, do they have a soft edge that fades, so they don't have to perfectly match the lipstick / mouth shape, or do they have a sharp edge, so they do have to match the lipstick shape or it won't look right?

Huzzah! You're welcome.

The glosses are just that, gloss. All highlights no edge, no color. They go over anything. :3
I forgot to post the maxis example of that. I have yet to find anything that looks bad with the gloss.

Aha! I recognise those Asian lips! It's Matsumoto Ken'ichi, aka L from Death Note!

I won't be downloading these because they won't suit my sims but I wanted to say you've done a good job on these. I know a lot of us like our sims to be individual and unique even if it's subtly. You've certainly hit the nail on what the sims 2 has truly been lacking. Well done

I'm so glad that you did this - not into too much shiny myself, and hate that I can't add all that detail to the shape of the lips, if I dont' use a specific type of lip colour. Thank you muchly!

Wow! These are amazing! Rest assured, not all of us like "the shiny". In fact, when making Sims, one of my most troubling problems (after deciding which clothes to put on them, of course! XD) is finding a lipstick that actually looks good on them, isn't that ugly Maxis shade of grey, but at the same time doesn't make my dudes look like drag queens and my girls look like street hookers. It's VERY hard, it seems.

Thanks again! I'll definitely be using these in my game!

this is one of those wow wow wow downloads. too good, love the idea of more lips for men (esp. asian) and layerable gloss much!! Thank you Please make more!

But I would love it more if they are more subtle (just a thought )

Ps. Where did you get the skin and eyes for that dark lady modelling your glosses?
Such a pretty skin!

Those are really spectacular! Don't worry, you're not the only one who's not into the whole shiny thing. It looks great on some sims, but on others it looks horrible. These are great, thank you!

When a girl has become one with her pony, she feels ultimate togetherness and love. The pony, on the other hand, just wants her messy bran slop and to go back to her warm, comfy stall for the rest of her life. Things such as this are different as you would think it to be.

These are great! I love to layer my sims' makeup as much as I can for unique looks, so this is certainly going to get used a lot. Great job!

Hmm... I think I'm T? Or K? I can't decide, but I'll certainly have fun playing with them in order to find out. This is a great download; like the layerable nosemasks, it's subtle, but really does add something unique to the Sims. I'm also super-happy that I can give some variety to my men - I already have some natural shades, but these are better. ^^

Your commentary cracked me up, too. Well done! I hope you get a shiny star-y thing.

I think I may very well end up doing so.
If need more subtlety you are free to go in by BodyShop and take the alpha down by... say 10% ought to do it.
I'm not sure how to make such drastic lip shapes more subtle. I work off life. Shrugs. But thanks for the feedback.

If you need really simple, generic lips check out AtomicSpaceKitty's Natural Lips Remix here: http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=299907.
I suspect you could use those over the top of my base lips to tone them down as well. I'm not sure.
I don't use them because they look a bit... pasty to me, but they're darn well made.

Skin is by HystericalParadoxysm (Idolatry of the Flesh), and the eyes on her are by Shady. (see bottom of first post)

Thanks very much my male sims need real lips. There are so many for the gals but so little for the men this needed to be addressed. You Rule!

I believe that dreams are sacred take my darkest fears and play them like a lullaby.

Why so serious?

I loved reading your commentary, you are hilarious. These lips look great, i look forward to using them. I am always looking for more stuff to make my sims more unique. I also am not a fan of shiny lipsticks, it seems we have a surplus of those though, so you must be right in saying that they are popular. I look forward to downloading anything else you happen to come up with. Thanks!
