Mod Info, Requirements, Object Specs and Cataloguing

Game version 1.67 (might work with other patch levels, beats me)

Lipstick, cost 5, found in BuyCatalog/ByFunction/Decorations/Misc (it's one of the first ones, having a low price).
Mesh: 46 vertices, 32 polygons

The CAS items used for the facepaint (or CostumeMakeUp) have no mesh
Description

This is a lipstick object. When the object is in a Sim inventory then the "Apply" interaction is available.
It applies facial paint to all the outfits of the Sim. I've added an interaction to remove the lipstick/makeup,
but it will also go away after a timeout or when Sims take a bath or a shower.
It uses the same system of the facial painting booth.

It doesn't apply a real lipstick (the one you can choose on Create A Sim) but a facepaint (or costume make-up).

Sims will look for a nearby mirror, if they find it they will have more chances to succesfully
apply the lipstick. If it goes wrong they'll get an embarrassing make-up and they will
react accordingly.

The mod is XML tunable. See for yourself how it can be configured (it's self-explanatory).

If you find annoying to get the lipstick from the catalog, you can use the keyword "ArsilLipstick"
and use the feature of my chewing gum mod to add it to the grocery store shopping list.
See instructions in the description of this mod for more info (inside a spoiler tag in the Object Info section).

I always uses cc lipsticks so can I make one lipstick and tie it to 1 of s-club lipstick and another one tied to another lipstick u know like the store has one bottle for each color can i have that many in game. also since it is lipstick does my attraction meter goes up or do i become vanity/ or temporary eye candy buff i mean is there any buff to using this. Dont get me wrong I would love this but using ea lipsticks i just can not do it.

With some effort you could probably convert your favourite CC lipsticks
into facepaint-lipsticks that can be used with this mod.

There are no buffs.

I guess one of the merits of the mod is to have a lipstick that Sims don't have to wear all the time.

Yes, they will use it autonomously. Nothing elaborated, they will probably use it before going to bed :P
EDIT: this could probably be improved using motives thresholds in the ITUN, so they won't apply the
lipstick when they have low energy - which means going to sleep soon - or low hygiene - so they
shouldn't take a shower any time soon. The only problem is that these limitations will also apply
to user directed interactions (IIRC), so I should probably handle them in the code itself. Maybe I'll do it.

I've kept the same advertisement used by the face painting booth: Fun motive.
It's just a matter of modifying the ITUN to link it to traits or whatever you like.

hmm thanks for the replay, could be cool a little improviment here to make the mod more fun, could be more funny and make sims even more "uniques" if we have sims with traits like diva or like irresitible or sims which love to flirt and things like that being more "narcisists than others and want look more "sexy" and attractive than others.

This is so smart, I didn't even think such an interaction was possible with an inventory object! Amazed.
