Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
NOTE: THESE WERE ONLY TESTED ON DEFAULT EA SKIN. I have no idea, how it would look on other skin textures.

What is LusterShine LipGloss?
It's a extremely versatile custom non-replacement full face mask that has been modified to be used as lipstick/or lip gloss.

Where do i find it?
Once you have downloaded, and installed the LSLipmask_Miniie071509.package file to your "Program files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages" directory, It's going to be under costume make up with its own icon.

What's so cool about it?

It's extremely versatile! It's fully customizable. You can create your own shade of colors, while still having the base textures shine through. You can either choose for it to be a Lip gloss, or go for of a natural look, by adjusting the highlight. (Color 1)
For lip glosses - Keep Color 1 near light colors to white. The closer to white, the shiner.
For lipstick - Choose a darker color with color 1 and use color 2 and 3 to blend.

You can also wear it with the EA lipstick underneath to create more fullness, and shine (If you use the wet). If you use the Matte EA default lipstick under it, you will have a different effect as well. The lipstick color will shine through so you can use it to blend the colors with your mask colors and create many shades!
It's amazing how many shades/looks you can create.

It retains it's shine in-game!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Yay! I can't wait to try these out with the alpha replacements I got at GOS. They look lovely, so thank you so much for sharing them.

EDIT: Unfortunately, they don't match up well with the re-alphas. I haven't tried them *without* the re-alphas, but I'd be willing to bet that they look lovely without them. I would LOVE to see a version for that set, but I'm not greedy. You have put a lot of work into this already and we all appreciate it, even if it doesn't quite work for me.

THX for this. So tired of having my gals look like drag queens. Nothing wrong with that, but I wasn't going for camp.

Amazing! I am so glad someone got on this. Some of the make-up defaults EA gives up are not exactly well thought out choices!!!!

I'm so excited to try this out!! It looks like it's going to be awesome!

On a side note, what eyes are used on the model?
#22 Old 21st Jul 2009 at 5:22 AM
Thanks these are awesome, I hope they look better than the replacements from GOS I had major problems with those creating big black shadows under the lips of most sims.

YES! Because as usual, Maxis makeup is horrid! Thanks!
