TENDERTONES- Detailed reviews of individual products as well as swatches are behind the more link!

Overall I wasn’t overly impressed by the Tendertones. They are sure lovely in their little glass pots (oh, and a tad heavy!), but I prefer my lip products in tubes, sticks, etc. because it is easier to grab and go with those. I’d rather not dip my finger into a product if I can help it, and let’s face it, I’m not the type of girl that is going to remember to carry a lip brush with her. Despite looking fairly pigmented on my hand, please take heed that I did swipe a good amount of product to get it that way. I put on Take A Hint on my lips, and I’m not exactly sure that it’s even on – it’s that sheer. They are very soft on the lips without being sticky, and they still give off a high gloss shimmer. Despite being soft, though, if you attempt to build up the color, you’ll end up with a very thick layer of the stuff, which is not nearly as delicious as the raspberry smell.

What I purchased: Take A Hint tendertone.

MOONBATHE – Detailed reviews of individual products as well as swatches are behind the more link!

Overall I felt like this collection was a good mixture of hues for the upcoming summer season, and it seemed as if this collection was different compared to the past few that have launched this year. I suppose if I was reminded of any prior collection, I would have to say C-Squeeze. I was pleasantly surprised by what purchases I actually made and what I was able to skip over. I found the majority of the lip products to be things I could pass on or colors I couldn’t see myself wearing more than once or twice. Those who want to test out vampy colors – there are plenty here! The colors of the collection seem to be a bit more muted, though still dramatic with the bold cranberry colors.

What I purchased: Firespot eyeshadow, Other Worldly blush, Astral Rays and Ritzy! glimmershimmers, Molten Sol liquidlast liner, and Moonbathe lipglass.
