MAC Tendertone. Shade? See: title.
[I’m not sure why this collection raised the fuss that it did – I received this in swap and let me tell ‘ya, it wasn’t for me! So here’s a review, but I’m sick, so it’s kinda pathetic.]Cons: too sticky, with a bubblegummy scent that drives me crazy. Not very pigmented.
Pros: Great shine, and it doesn’t dry out my lips. Plus, this isn’t something that wears off in fifteen minutes – that’s always the drawback, though – if it has good stay, it’s always sticky! Compared to a lot of glosses, though, the stickiness isn’t bad. Gorgeous packaging, of course. I believe this is the same type of pot as the Paint Pots are stored in, and it feels incredibly luxe! Weighted, and high-quality, this is something you could drop on the floor a few times without damaging it. (The floor may not fare so well, though!)
Not so great if: you’re like me, a makeup-minimalist. If lip balm, a touch of concealer, eyeliner, and blush is your go-to look, this will drive you crazy!
Great if: you love sweet things – I betcha this did really well with the U20 age group, excluding me. Also great if you want some shine with staying power, and don’t mind the sticky!
Comment or send me MUAmail if you want this! I’ve been trying to get rid of it so someone else can love it, but it’s going to cost like $15 to ship and no one’s really up for that x.x (One girl actually accused me of lying. Quite literally, in a “either you’re an idiot and your p.o. is ripping you off or you’re lying in your product description” way. Bitch. We don’t all have the luxury of cheap shipping! /end rant)
Off to go get better! (Jk, I’m off to school, because I’m a masochist at the bottom of it all)
