This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Hi everyone!

First up, credit must go to Kathy for giving me her kind permission to again incorporate her realistic lips into Version 3 of TASTY skintones. She is so modest, she said to not worry about giving credit, but she deserves it. Her original work I used for the lips is here:

If you want to upload these skins with a complete packaged sim, please do so and you can post wherever you like if you give credit for my work.

Of course it's OK to use in pictures/screenshots or movies, and don't worry about credit for those purposes.

Thankyou all for your feedback on the earlier versions, and providing suggestions.

Especially * Krayzieworld * for suggesting to add more prominent collarbones and an adam's apple. Your suggestion was awesome! It has been done. :D

SETS ARE COMPLETE. All ages, both genders, all fitness states - please note, the skins will look different between the fat, normal and fit states (will suit both Maxis mesh and the awesome Marvine+Beosboxboy bodybuilders & athletes meshes of both genders). So you have to exercise your sims to see the skin change to fit.

Please note, that although you may see a "treasure trail" of hair on the males, THESE SKINS DO NOT HAVE HAIR or any other anatomically correct parts. You will have to go elsewhere to find *those* skins

These skins are also available as defaults thanks to SpookyMuffin - a very BIG THANKYOU!!! to you, SpookyMuffin, for making a default version Note that all the default skins are in the file clearly labelled "default" and these are the S2 Cream to S4 Chocolate tones.

Spooky also made it possible that the S0 non-default custom skin is genetic, so if you breed the sugar skintone with a genetic dark skintone, the child's skintone can be be either of those tones or somewhere in between.

I've made the real eyes available for you; you can even use the sclera to put your own eyeballs on and look great, I also uploaded the original photoshop file for you to use to get it right - go here to get the real eyes (and the photoshop file if you want it):

Skintone codes:
S0 = Sugar (lightest)
S1 = Cream (2nd lightest)
S2 = Caramel (middle tone)
S3 = Coffee (2nd darkest)
S4 = Chocolate (Darkest)

Have fun

***What you ARE ALLOWED and ARE NOT ALLOWED to do with these skins if you want to use my skins as a base for your own skintones YOU MUST READ ALL OF THESE CONDITIONS and comply with them (if you do not want to do anything with these skins, skip this section ****

These types of alteration are NOT ALLOWED:

Ignorance will not be accepted as an excuse because these terms are crystal clear and you have NO excuse for being too lazy to read these conditions if you wanted to make use of my time and effort.
I will hunt you down.
You have been warned.

I have a ton of sims that I made before I joined MTS2, and up until now I couldn't find a skintone that looked good on any of them. These skins are just so pretty, and you also did an awesome job making colors that match the Maxis skins almost perfectly. Thanks a bunch, and keep up the great work!

EDIT: These skins should totally be featured!

I really like these skins. They're detailed and somewhat shiny, but not so much that they look totally fake. Great job!

Wow, these are awesome. I like this skin - just glowy enough to be pretty, but doesn't make the Sims look all greased up/cartoony. I've been looking for something like this. Thank you!

I just want to let you know that I've been using these skins for over a year now... and you are definitely one of my favourite creators for Sims 2 Custom content! In my book, you are top ranked, alongside with creators such as Ephemera/Teru_k, Bruno etc. Yeah. You are DA BOMB!! Hahaha *hug* Thank you so much fo creating these skins and sharing them!

Thank you so much for making these beautiful skins available! They do wonders with even strange looking sims, giving all my sims very sweet faces.

Disappointed with TS3, I recently reinstalled my TS2 and expansions I had from scratch and for the first time went actively looking for custom content. I must have downloaded someone's custom sim, because I had your S0 skin tone to choose from in CAS. It instantly became my favorite skin, and I went to great lengths to try and manually override some of my townies with it in SimPE. It occurred to me that I should try and Google you, and I was ecstatic to find that not only were your skins available in all tones, and for free, but that you had them available as default replacements with a genetic S0! I ADORE them! I prefer them over the skins I had to pay to get access to from another site.

I love these skins, thank you! Using them as defaults in my game. Especially glad to find defaults without ridiculous push-up boobs.

Don't know what's up but I can't seem to download the defaults. I've tried a few times and it always fails. I tried another download and had no problems but didn't get anywhere with the defaults.
