You got me. >.< lol I try to stay away from makeup CC (because it's so easy to go out of control with it) but these lipsticks really surprised me. They look great in game, and add enough realism to change up a sim's look, but not so much that it looks out of place in a vanilla game. I really like that it is versatile enough to match with Maxis or CC makeups. The best of both worlds! The only drawback I found was that my male sims can't enjoy them too. That was fully noted in the details, though, so it was not unexpected. Thank you for sharing these beautiful glosses!
