Is using a skin program (to just try a skin before buying it) Illegal?(or bans players)

people have been telling me it isnt illegal,but others Have actually been banned cause of some skin programs (put in mind that it isnt a perm. skin for free or anything,it just helps people Try the skin out before buying it from the store in-game).So,is it illegal?
