Additional Information: Screenshot of eyeshadow attached. 

 

Minor update: I uninstalled the Vampires pack and there are no issues in CAS. For some reason it is only the Vampire eyeshadow that causes it. I also started a new family, different from the one that had the issues before I uninstalled and there were still problems with the eyeshadow. I had not even chosen an eyeshadow yet and the game chose the vampire one for me. This prompted me to uninstall that pack.

@i1540jzz9hlc Does this happen with every vamp you create ? Bit unsure I understand what you did right (cause of your comment below)

You created a random vamp and it already had that eye shadow and now you can't get rid of it ?

Sorry for confusion. In my comment, I meant to say that other eyeshadows do not cause the issue. I had actually uninstall the Vampires pack to stop the issue. I would like for pack to be installed to play it though. 

Regarding your first statements:

This happened with a normal Sim who was not occult. I would create a new Sim and then as soon as I selected an item that would push me into the clothing choice section of CAS the Sim would populate the vampire makeup, even if there was no makeup worn initially.

@i1540jzz9hlc Could be an issue with the controls on console then.

@i1540jzz9hlc You aren't pressing the L Trigger button or the L Trigger button on your controller isn't sticking is it? I tried to duplicate this but was not able to. Even randomizing the eyeshadows and then trying to switch or choose the vampire eyeshadow, the shadows did not revert unless I pressed the undo button.

 

I was able to duplicate the makeup on every outfit, but not the reverting makeup. It does seem like something is not right with the makeup application.

Re: Sim randomly wearing lipstick

This is happening to me too, also on ps4.

 

My Sim had no lipstick, I applied MAC brand lipstick to their formal outfit, then moved into athletic outfit. I noticed they had the same MAC brand lipstick I had applied to the formal so I removed it and changed some of their outfit but as soon as I changed their outfit the lipstick reappeared only this time it was the grimcookies lipstick added in the birthday update. After that every change I made in outfit no matter how many times I removed the lipstick it would reappear.

 

Happened after last patch update. The only packs I have is Island Living.

Omg this has literally just started happening to me as well about 3 minutes ago!! I put the Mac lipstick on and then all of a sudden on every outfit her lips were changing to bright green and bright yellow and bright red no matter how many times I took all of her makeup off!! 

I am also on PS4

Also forgot to mention that the eyeshadow goes on kids too, however because there is no option for kids make-up, you cannot remove it.

 

@Carys1302 I have the same thing but with the eyeshadow instead.

I will reinstall and see if I am pressing those buttons. I should have time later today to test. Sorry for my delays in replies. But I appreciate all of you helping me to research if it is my issue or an issue! Ha. More to come.
