Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I keep trying to make sims and finding I have a remarkable lack of lip textures that look nice, natural, pretty, and work on all sorts of skintones. So I went and made a bunch.

These lipsticks have a very light sheen to them, a subtle shine without gloss, and add a touch of colour, blending with the sim's normal lip colour for a very natural, fresh-faced look.

These worked equally well on just about every skintone I tried, though obviously some shades will look better with certain tones.

There are twelve shades in all, ranging from dark brown and crimson to pale, pretty pinks. Some of the shades are quite similar, especially in the more natural range - this is intentional, as I wanted a nice range of subtle pinks and mauves for male lips and child lips.

Thanks to:

Well, I love these, but I'm getting a "Not authorised! You are not allowed to get this file." message which I find very odd indeed.

Actually it's happening anytime I try to dl.

OK, thanks Tiggerypum for pming me. I'll leave this up in case someone else has the same problem. You need to log out and then back in to reset the cookies. Something to do with recent upgrades.

*edit* I can't download this file. Q-express doesn't work either. This is the only file I've tried that I can't download from the site. It takes me to an error page when I try to download.

I get the same error. These are so amazing and I'd love to have them for my game.

I'm getting the 404 error as well, tried logging in and out several times and even deleted all my cookies, but I haven't managed to get it to work.
#19 Old 6th Jan 2007 at 10:20 AM
I've tried to logout and return but I've get always this "your are not allowed" with a "" in the adress. When I have refresh (actualiser) this url the dl have function. Perhaps you can test with refresh too.
Fortunately now, I could use these delightful lipsticks.

Guys, if you are having problems downloading, please read the site news about the fileserver split - it has nothing to do with my file.
