I do believe we’ll end up seeing Baby Bloom much earlier than its official launch date — probably early July, maybe even June.

I love tinted moisturizers now — I’m a total convert! Well, I’ll still opt for liquid foundation from time to time, but if I can, just tinted moisturizer is good for me!

Nothing is more flaterring to me than a make up that is letting appear the skin. It just gives something youthful and fresh. Foundations are often like masks, at least on me. I’m also a converted to tinted moisturers (if only I could find one that doesn’t darken my complexion)!

Ugh, I just wish I got enough coverage from tinted moisturizers, but unfortunately I have bad acne scarring… any suggestions? Do I have to stick to a mask face?

Your right girl!!! I live in Puerto Rico and its hot 80% of the year!! Sometimes makes me feel lazy to apply my foundation every day during the day because its makes my skin feel so sticky =S. I will buy a tinted moisturizer and some tinted lip balms too. =)

Ever since they discontinued Select Tint, I was wondering what they would do. This seems like a more than adequate replacement! And tinted lip balms to boot!

When I went to the mac store this autumn, I asked the mua about their lightest tinted product and she proposed me select tint. She also said “it’s going to be discontinued, we’re going to propose a new product to replace it”. So I suppose it might be a good replacement. 🙂

Its kind of annoying that the balms have more SPF than the TM, but I won’t nitpick. All of the tint shades look lovely, though; and the TM shade range is broad enough that anyone can find a match. Pretty impressed. Let’s just hope that the price is right.

I’ve gotten over SPF in foundation, only because I prefer to have it in my moisturizer! This way I can just alter my moisturizer for photo occasions 🙂

I so excited!! I have been so lost since Select Tint was discontinued. I hope the launch date will come soon here in Canada. Does anyone know if the tinted moisturizers will be permanent?

I feel so bad for you Candee Sparks as I read in previous posts about your MAC closing up. Think positive though, there’s always online shopping & MAC has been doing a lot of free shipping w/ no minimum lately. I know that won’t help for swatching but thank goodness Christine does a lot of swatching for us. I know its not the same but does help most times. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that a new one will open near you in the future 🙂

Wow, why does it close? 🙁 It sucks because the mac website is really not the best to get an idea of colors and nothing’s better than going and see the products in person.

Yep, I will definately be buying this!
Damn u MAC, Style Warrior, Naked Honey, Colour Craft and now Baby Bloom.
I am going to be skint before I even start 6th form haha…

I hope the lip balms taste better than those god awful lip conditioners they already have. I’m afraid of the moisturizer because some of macs products break me out (like studio fix). Plus my mufe hd is perfect, even during the summer. But, I think I’ll try this and see. Any damage sone to my skin hopefully will not last long. The things I do for beauty.

Aww, well, I’d wait and see how others react to it before venturing into it. They’re permanent as far as I know, so no need to rush!

I want one of each of those lip balms! I have been drawn to sheer lip color lately in lieu of my more pigmented glosses and lip products. I think these will help satisfy my glossy/shimmery but sheer lip needs!

I really do want to try tinted moisturiser, because all tinted moisturisers are (usually) too dark for me. Maybe this works? I also will check lip balms, I like the colour of the first one.

Yes! I’m so excited to try a Mac TM! That is a definite must. I will reserve judgment on the lip balms until I see them swatched. Shame these things are coming out in… Fall? Weird. Both lines are really summer items.

im so sad that tendertones is not gonna come back this yea. i never got to try them! =(. i will though check these out. i am in love with my bare essentuals lip guard with spf in it.

I am super duper excited about the lippies 🙂 I think I am going pass on the face stuff….I am using the tinted suncreen you reviewed a few weeks ago and am LOVING it!!!!! The lightest shade is just the tiniest bit dark for me but since its summer I am just saying to heck with it and wearing it anyways…its not that dark.

I will say that I really really dont like the promo picture for this collection though…its looks like the plant is strangling the model and that she is now dead…some type of bizzare homacidal plant who kills models….gives me the creeps.

I had a feeling you’d like these lip balms, Tanya!!

The Korres one? I am SO HAPPY to hear you say that. I really hope they expand the shade range a smidge, but luckily since it is sheer/tinted, it’s not TOO bad when it’s off… but yeah, more shades would still be perfect.

The promo photos are a bit off – the first one is at least… artistic? something? in a sense of a creepy girl looking dead/strangled, I guess. The second one is gross, though my boyfriend said it was cool.

These don’t interest me at all. Which is just as well, because I’ll be buying all the mineralized stuff from Color Craft. 🙂

this collection looks like something good as birthday gifts for tweeners (half-kid, half-teenager lol)! 😀 you know, if they’re interested in makeup but don’t really have the ‘right’ yet to wear loud colors and heavy bases.. 😉

I think my sister would love these lip balms (definitely gonna get her a few!), because she prefers tinted lip products than anything else.

My sister is the same way! She really doesn’t like most lipglosses and she relies on me for all her makeup decisions. LOL, she’s older : ). I guess makeup is just my thing. She’s just too busy with school.

I just find one thing pretty stupid : the collection is coming out in the fall, but I love tinted moisturizers in the summer … this collection should come out now !!!

YAY! It looks like I will be getting these just in time for my awesome holiday away this year 😀 I really miss the Tendertones, so much so that I ran out of my fave shade and had to buy two from ebay! Well worth it though 🙂 Hope these are as good. Will try out the tinted moisturiser. I normally use the No7 one but i’m willing to give these a try. And these ones have a higher factor so yeah 🙂

Well I got Tread Gently when they first came out because most of them sold out really quickly here, but in duty free at the airport they had Take a Hint which I originally wanted so I bought two there and then! But they didnt even last me half the year I used them so much! So I found the 2 Take A Hint ones on ebay, but am hoping these suntint ones are just as good so I can stock up on these, so the 2 Tendertones I have now will actually last me! Fingers crossed :o)

This seems like such an odd collection to launch for Fall. I would have loved this if it had launched back in April or May, since in the summer I think we all like to lighten up a bit on the face makeup and having an SPF liptint is more important to us as we take to the beaches and partake in outdoor activities throughout the summer. By the time August rolls around I am starting to think about the fall and richer colors and heavier coverages as the weather cools. I suppose I might pick up one of the lip tints as they will be nice for August, but honestly so many people have put out lovely SPF lip products over the years this seems a bit behind the times….

Oooooh, maybe the tinted moisturizer will be exactly like, or better than my beloved, now discontinued Select Tint. RIP! I can’t wait for this to launch. I really hope the TM isn’t a limited edition. They need a staple TM in their line! So excited I can hardly stand it. 🙂

OMG! That’s music to my ears. I’ve been on a quest for something to replace it and although I’ve come close, with MAC Face+Body, the color match isn’t nearly as PERFECT as it was with Select Tint. Hopfully one of these adorable new tubes has a NC30 match with my name all over it. This is great news! *cartwheels*

Ok I want to know ALL about the tinted moisturiser. COVERAGE, INGREDIENTS ETC. I can’t wait to try it, hope its oil free. I’ve been waiting so long for a good tinted moisturiser and I hope this is it.

The tinted moisturizer is a great idea but needed now with select tint gone. and the liquid lips is very exciting cause the tinted lip conditioners is kinda inconvenient in the pot.

It’s pretty silly for this to be a fall collection.
I don’t know about everyone else, but in summer I wear JUST a tinted moisturizer.
MAC needs to learn when to release certain products. I am sure they could have sold more if it were released now.
But yeah, looking forward to both!
Very curious on the pigmentation of the lip balms, the purple will definately be interesting!

I’ll probably pick up one of each 🙂 But I’m not too excited for this, I’m more excited for the Colour Craft Collection!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!
