The Sweetest Next New Thing


Hart Larsson of PXL Creations has released some new mesh lips and as you can see from Gidge’s post, they are The Next New Thing. For this post, I have only used raw shots, with absolutely no photoshopping because I want you to see why folks are excited about SweetLips.  Interestingly, the look was seamless in Second Life®. I think the bit of shadow is actually my fault. I accidentally tinted the skin instead of the lips and while I thought I brought the tint back to white on top of the Natural applier, I must not have clicked to completely white, so the skin is just a tiny bit darker than it should be.

There is a support page at PXL Creations web site  which if I had looked at first, I would never have made skin red. But I don’t like reading directions. I like to figure it out for myself and it turns out to be easy enough that I figured it out anyway. 


As you can see, there are no weird gaps, cracks and alphas from the side. It looks good from all angles. All you need to do to get a good fit is copy your usual shape and adjust the mouth to the measurements in the notecard that comes with the SweetLips package. Also in the package there is a HUD that lets you color the lips, tint the skin or apply PXL Creations skin tones. You should turn off Ambient Occlusion to get the best results.  It comes with a modifiable version which I think I will try next, to see how it looks with my own mouth measurements.

The lips come with 1 to 3 piercings which I promptly turned off. I hope future versions will allow for some different expressions of emotion. People really don’t stand around with their mouth open that much; they express emotions with their lips. Smiles, frowns, up and down and all around. Our mouths are important to express our thoughts and feelings. That’s why I look forward to what I am sure is more and more to come.

I am sharing a screenshot so you can see that there is absolutely not editing to help it look better. This is even with shadows on.

The lips are easy to tint, just click around, find a color you like and then click the lips icon (the bottom one). If you click the top one, well, it’s funny!


There’s really no limit to the lip colors you can make, though you can see I am not into more outrageous lip shades myself.
