Wow, thank you so much! I was one of the ones who requested this but not sure if it was just me or not. Still, thank you so much, I just love your new style of lip shades. I also love HP's skin tones the best so this works out great! *downloads*

Love them! I haven't thought of even requesting anything like this but these will come in handy!

Beautiful! The darker colors are a vast improvement, and I love the subtly of the lighter ones. Thank you so much!

These are so fantastic!! Much more subtle...I know they will come in handy when I play my pared down Maxis Match neighborhood (where I play with only a few downloads in for when I want the game to run fast)!!

i've massacred my manicure, (am i poisoned flesh?)
and made a mess, (a sweet caress)

When I saw your default replacement for the lost and found Sioux lipstick I thought about asking you for default replacements for other Maxis' lipsticks, but I hadn't time to ask this and even download the Sioux one...and now the first thing I saw in downloads page and that make me hurry to grab were this defaults! I used to use Bruno's Torskläppar lipsticks as defaults, but now I want something less realistic and more realisim...and your default replacements are great! Thanks a lot!

Thank you! There were only two or three of the Maxis lipsticks that I ever used. They were almost all too gaudy, and none of them looked good on my darker-skinned ladies. But these are beautiful. Such an improvement!

These were sorely needed! Townies can finally stop looking like they have smeared something thick and awful on their lips, I don't have to manually remake them with the make-up chair

edejan The file link is at the end of the thread, in the download box. It worked for me, maybe the server was being wonky when you tried? Try downloading again.

Yay! More default replacements. I love these... The changes are subtle, but a great improvement. Thank you!
#16 Old 17th May 2008 at 8:35 PM
Gasp! Amazing pure genius! ^^ Thank you lots! I personally prefer to have replacement than custom content, this is perfect!

**I_am_ME** I'm glad you like them. If you want to find your older default replacements, use TS2ContentManager. It will tell you which packages are lipstick. I do not have plans to make these into non-defaults, but you are free to do so if you wish.

Great job. I also like how they have a bit more of a matte finish. The Maxis ones were too gaudy, and of course, didn't go at all with most skintones. Thanks!

update - problem was caused by other CC

Both OFB lipsticks and shadows/liners replacements have no such problems at all.
I have all expansions and stuff packs and I have downloaded default files. I put them inside Downloads folder.
I don't know if anyone had similar problem. Or is there any other place than DL folder that I should put them to get rid of name, star and delete button? - I want to use them but I don't want to delete them accidentally.
Thanks for letting me know. I'll look into this and try to fix it. I do not get this problem, so it is hard for me to debug it at home (have all EPs, all SPs except H&M).

Could you please try moving all CC, except my default lipsticks, out of Downloads, and see if the problem persists or not? (backup up your neighborhoods before you do this, not that I expect anything bad to happen, but its a good idea to back up)

Also, I have the lipsticks in Downloads/makeup/lip, not just in Downloads, but I don't think that should make a difference, putting in just Downloads should work fine (though I haven't checked yet).

Unfortunately, skin creator did not stated it shouldn't be used with any base game lipsticks defaults. I've removed it and asterisk, name and delete button disappeared.

Thank you, I love being able to use the "defaults" so I don't have to scroll through a bajillion different lipsticks ^__^

Ooo! Another set of default makeup replacements! I've tried a couple of other default lipstick sets and shuddered because I'm more a fan of Maxis-match than hyper-realism. So I like a more Maxis look, but not the pancake effect some of the Maxis defaults have. These look great, so I'm going to give them a try. Thanks so much!
