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.

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.


Alpha replacements? For skin? replacement skin?

On a side note, what eyes are used on the model?


Those are my Colorblend default eye replacements.\

Oh, way cool! How did you edit it to just do the lips?! I've tried fiddling with the masks some, but I can't figure out how to change anything. This is so cool! I'm excited! It's a giant leap forward!

Did you delete the Simcompositorcache.package file from My Documents/Electronic Arts/The sims 3.

If that doesnt work, check here http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?...g_Package_Files

You have to edit the alpha channel on the textures to only show the lips. If you extract the .dds file for the FACE you can use it as a guide.
It's in this thread. http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...813#post2705813

Hi. I was so excited to try this out, yet I haven't been in CAS for so long, building a mansion.
But today I've decided to check out the goodies for sims.

There is a problem with your make-up, sounds like the same as sims3blog mentioned above. The full face lightens up when placed on. Especially noticable on dark skinned models, I have gotten a screenshot to show you what it does, it is a random sim, with and without your gloss:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...glosseffect.jpg
It gives highlights to the cheeks and nose, and a shadow under the lip. I hope you know why is this. I have no idea if it is fixable, or if only specific computers do this.
Thank you for your trouble though. It is a very innovative creative idea for makeup.

Wow. That's really weird. I tested that out on all skin tones and i never got that. I'm going to look into it. I might have an idea of what might be causing it, but i'm going to have to test it out.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep you all posted.

this mask is not compatible with peggyzone skin however it is compatible with the skin used for THIS custom sim:
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=363953

and the skin used for that sim seems compatible for all ages AND with the mask (even tho the lines do show up once ina while in CAS)

Finally! - What the heck was EA thinking with that lipstick they offer? Versatile - yes, but making it look decent can be a real pain.

I think this is going to help greatly!

Awesome!
I love this so much!

It's all I use on all my lighter Sims now. But... as mentioned before there's a lightening to the face on darker tones In my game it is not as drastic as in sims3blog's picture. If it matters, my Sims skin is from Garden of Shadows and I took a couple pictures from CAS for your view pleasure

I'm also seeing the lightening effect when putting the mask on, gets more noticable the darker the sim you have, but i was playing a normal caucasian and i noticed the lightening right away with her.. Any idea what might be going as, i really like this gloss idea, works really well in itself but the effect on the rest of the face puts me off

<'',><
Just keep swimming..

I have to agree with all the above posters. I noticed the so-called "lightening" right away. To me it looks much more like a plastic sheen. It's like you put this lipmask on and bam! your sims have Barbie faces. But I, like j3nni noticed it on lighter toned sims, not pale, cause I don't really play pale, but on sims with like light tans. and I play with the asian skins by 234jiao.
