I did some quick comparisons last night, as you can see above!
Warm Chill is closer to Metamorph than Juxt, but instead of having a cool-yellow kind of undertone, Warm Chill is more of a gold-green undertone. They’re different; I definitely wouldn’t say Juxt is a dupe.
Climate Blue isn’t like anything I currently own, but I do think it is similar to Jeweltone (but I think it may be darker/richer in purple, more of a royal purple).
Blue Flame is almost like a cross between Deep Truth and Freshwater — I originally recalled Flashtrack, but thinking about it, I think Flashtrack is darker than Deep Truth (I don’t own it, so I’m going purely by my unreliable memory). It’s definitely not the same as Deep Truth, because it is bluer and a bit brighter; but Freshwater is obviously much lighter than Blue Flame.

MAC PRO launched six new neon pigments that are matte in texture! (Thanks to Krasevayadancer for these images!) Unfortunately, SF PRO is closed for the night (I always order through them, because then the package arrives next day, practically!), but I did call up South Coast Plaza PRO (makes me miss living in Irvine — cause you know your girl would be driving there right now!) to get color names! Since I own so many pigments, I imagine I’ll probably order them all tomorrow morning. Whether I’ll wear them is a different story.
What about you? Would you wear these?
- Red Electric
- Full Force Violet
- Green Space
- Neo Orange
- Magenta Madness
- Kick-It Yellow

Thanks to MAC, I was able to try out three (Warm Chill, Blue Flame, and Climate Bleu) of the seven upcoming shadows and two of the four (High 90s and Swelter) (five?) upcoming slimshines from Cool Heat! Of course, you know I had to get photos and swatches as soon as I got my hands on them, right?

OVERALL, Tendertones are fun if you like this kind of product. It’s a sheer, ultra thick and glossy lip balm. These aren’t pigmented–if you have very neutral or low-pigmented lips, they might give you more color than the average person. All of the swatches are HEAVY applications; I basically dug a bit out of the jar so that you could really see the color, but upon actual application to lips, these would be a lot sheerer. Also, while I had all of these sitting on my hand for at least an hour, none of them left a stain of any sort for me (just in case anyone thought they might lend a stain kind of application).
My favorites were Sweet Tooth and Hush, Hush. I did not purchase any at this time, though. I have one from last time they launched, and I never wear it, so I figured I can probably pass on this launch!
Note: I think my store had Soft Note tendertone out instead of Honey Bare. I kept going through my swatches trying to figure out which one was Honey Bare, but none of them looked remotely close. And there is no lilac tendertone! Soft Note was a lilac tendertone that came out with last year’s launch of Tendertones–I couldn’t tell you why it was out instead. Hush, Hush *could* be Honey Bare, but I think Honey Bare is lighter – correct me if I’m wrong.
