I am sooooo excited about the tendertones release!! I own two and I LOVE them for summer wear ๐Ÿ™‚ I want one of nearly every color LOL

I have a question for you, how do you create a lip stain? Would this product help? I am curious to see if you could create stains in different colors? Thanks.


I haven’t heard anything about Tendertones being re-released. There are some tinted lip balms coming with Baby Blooms in June/July, and they’re expected to be similar to Tendertones, though.

Man I soooo hope these at least give a sheer version of their pot colour – there is nothing worse than a tinted balm that looks about as “wow” as a swipe of Vaseline……

Peri – I’m so with you on that. That’s exactly what happened when I got excited about the Strobe collection…none of the colors showed up or did ANYTHING for me. I hope this collection is better. I didn’t buy any last year…but if they stain and the colors pop enough, I’m on it!

I’m on the fence about these. i don’t like to stick my finger in products and I hear that these are kinda heavy for carrying in your purse. We’ll wait and see…

These all look gorgeous!!! I have one from last year’s collection and love to use it at night before bed! My lips feel great in the morning. I definitely will be getting a few of these!!!!!!!!

I think I’ll pass on this collection, with so many new items coming, my MAC buying won’t be leaning towards another lipbalm to add to the 100s I own. Plus $17.50 CAD for one is a bit much. I’ll stick with my Burt’s Bees.

I have Purring and Warm Smile and use them every day, so I’ll definitely be re-stocking my supply with a couple of these (maybe Hot n Saucy & Deep Sigh?). I carry Purring in my purse (I don’t find it that heavy) and use a retractable lip brush with it so that I don’t have to stick my finger in the pot.

I’m used a little over half of each of them (had them since October). I’m a little worried that Purring is getting funky, though, it has started to turn more pinkish…

I picked up Sweet&Nice at the PRO store last week. Iยดm really happy with that, pigmented enough for me. Quite heavy to carry arond though…

i bought ‘sweet tooth’, ‘pucker’, and ‘honey bare’ they feel so amazing on the lips… i love love love them. I’ll be using a brush with them because i don’t like sticking my fingers in them… but i fell in love as soon as i opened the first little pot. <3

The MAC website recently switched the descriptions of Take a Hint and Honey Bare. I thought there was something funny about those two descriptions.
