On cheeks, it imparts a natural sheen that’s fresh-faced without being shiny or oily-looking. The color is very subtle, and on deeper skin tones, I don’t think it would be so effective. On pale to light-medium skin tones, it would work well as a barely-there blusher to add some warmth and natural color. NARS Sex Appeal is much, much lighter. Chanel Espiegle is much more orange. MAC Brit Wit is cooler, less peach, more mauve. Urban Decay Score is pinker. It wears for seven and a half hours on cheeks. I liked applying this with a stippling brush best and blending with fingers.
In the collection, there are four limited edition shades of MAC Tendertone Lip Balm ($15.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.), which are: Hot ‘n’ Saucy (soft cherry red), Hush, Hush (sheer gold with yellow gold pearl), Purring (sheer tangerine with pearl), and Tread Gently (soft lime green with yellow pearl).
