Tendertones (US $15) - MAC Shop MAC Cook

MAC Tendertones were once permanent tinted lip balms with SPF 12. MAC describes the smell as "strawberry-kiwi". It's a synthetic scent. Most customers adore the smell but if you love the original vanilla scent of the lipglasses & lipsticks, these may not be for you. They released four shades: Hush, Hush, Purring, Hot 'n' Saucy & Tread Gently. Limited Edition!

Hush, Hush
(as shown in picture above) is a pink beige with gold shimmer. This provides no color, only shimmer. I feel it would look great over Honey Love matte l/s.

Purring is a tangerine orange with no shimmer. When Tendertone is applied it looks like a sheer coral on the lips but can also reflect off of the natural pigmentation. So it may look different on you than I.

Tread Gently is a sheer yellow/green shimmer. Similar to Hush, Hush with no pigmentation to add to the lips simply just shimmer.

Hot 'n' Saucy looks cherry-red in the pot also with no shimmer but once applied, it sheers down to a cute strawberry/watermelon pink.
