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.

In April, Victoria’s Secret launched their Very Sexy Beauty Collection, which included Diamond Eye Duos ($14.00), Diamond Lip Glimmers ($12.00), and a Diamond Luster Face Powder ($22.00).
I really, really, really LOVED the Diamond Luster Face Powder! It has such a gorgeous design, but when you apply the color to your face, it goes on so smoothly and has just the right pop of pink and peach to add glow to your face. I feel like this is a great product for those who love blush or bronzer or even anyone who is looking for something that is a face pick-me-up. I’m all over anything that gives me a sexy summer glow, and the Luster Face Powder does it flawlessly. The Diamond Lip Glimmers come in three shades, and they’re all lightweight, semi-sheer, and non-sticky. They also have an incredible shimmer to them–not a chunky glitter, but a subtle sheen much like Chanel Glossimers (but way cheaper). I found that the wear-time for the lip glimmers alone was a respectable three hours or more of normal usage (which does not include eating/drinking).
