Are your child sims a little boring? I find that mine are, especially the females because there's not a lot of custom content out there for children. One thing I was seriously missing for my preteen simgirls was makeup, lipgloss in particular. It seems that all the awesome lipsticks are made for teens and adults only. Which leaves the lip of our little girls dry, chapped and miserable. So...due to the extreme demand for lip balm, I present my Bubbly Lipgloss!



Bubbly is a simple lipgloss composed of three channels. This lipgloss looks good with many color combinations. But, if you'd like the sheer/glossy affect, you should color the outer rim of the lips to a skin tone shade.



This lipgloss is available for child females only. It also has a custom thumbnail:



So look for that ^ when in CAS.

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.

Awesome DAL!!!! <3

I hate the children's lips so much in the sims. Your lippies will make them look much prettier.

Yeah, way to sexualize children.

Right now all you have is time, time, time, but someday that time will run out.
That's the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

I agree with LadyFrontbum and this is really a neglected area. Thank you so much for giving us more options. As for a 'way to sexualize children' maxis already set the precedent by providing lipstick for children. The only problem is that its just really ugly! So well done - there are a lot of little girls who love to play dress up and lipgloss is a favourite.

Lipgloss isn't a "sexualisation" of children; the creator did stipulate that the purpose is for pre-teen Sims, who are incredibly hard to create without basic makeup. Go and ask a group of eleven year olds if they wear makeup. It's one of the key differences between a tall child and a small teen. Besides, the default lips are unrealistic and ugly; really these look more like naked lips than lipglossed.

Thanks Daluved

thank you so much for this. I hated that their lips were such a bland matt color, and i didn't really want them to wear lipstick, couldn't ever get it to look like gloss the color being to visible. Thanks again

Things like this are great cause it's something that's missing from the game. And a lot of creators just create make up for glam. But make up can be used in so many ways. I'm sure the creator was not looking to sexualize kids. Makeup isn't all about sexuality. It's great to have makeup to create a character. Not everyone has the same color lips, and it's nice to have some variation in your sims.
thanks for the lips.

Great work! I would love this for boys and toddlers too, because paler sims tend to look a little bit like corpses without any lip color whatsoever (which isn't very realistic, I mean I'm really pale and my lips are quite dark and pinkish). This lip-gloss has solved that problem for at least the girls in my game, so thanks!
