First Impressions

When I first saw the Tendertones collection from MAC I just knew there was nothing that I would want from the collection because none of the colors appealed to me at all. Eventually, I went back to the MAC website and learned that all of the Tendertones lip balms with SPF 12 smell like strawberry-kiwi and I was sold. I purchased two online and then two more in person from a MAC counter. The application of the Tendertones lip balms is great because it is so smooth and they smell great. Those who are looking at the pretty colors of the lip balms don't make a purchase based on the colors because they don't really show up well. I also purchased some lipglasses, but before my order arrived I was regretful that I ordered that green Spring Bean lipglass but it's actually pretty cute.
Here is an arm shot that you can enlarge. The lipglasses are to the left in this order - Russian Red, Ornamental, Tranceplant, Spring Bean, Love Nectar, Quite Natural (paint pot), here are the tendertones lip balms Deep Sigh, Hush Hush, Honey Bare and Sweet & Nice.
This is my first paint pot- thank you Nywele and everyone else who encouraged me to purchase a paint pot. It is really creamy and it would be perfect for that smokey eye look. It blends in really well with my skin once I rub it in a bit.
Did you order anything from the Tendertones collection? What is on your MAC wish list?

I loooove Paint pots. I haven't purchased one since they first came out. In fact, I haven't used one in a minute, but when I do...I love them! Still not sold on the Tendertones. The packaging throws me off. Why can't they offer them in tubes or somethin'? Hmmm...love the vid!

great post! arent you glad you stepped out of your comfort zone? those were some great choices for you. if i had disposable income, i would definitely buy up the entire mac strore. but for now, i'm skating by with drugstore brands (namely covergirl).

Ornamental is a rerun MAC is bringing back. I had it before and I so loved it. Good work, PJD. I'll be getting Russian Red (sans chestnut liner. I wanna shine!) and another round of ornamental.

Ornamental is one of my favorite lustreglass..so gorgeous especially with the blush ambering rose.

@DE you noticed..lol
@B Yes you are right, I would prefer a tube or something for those tendertones but they smell so good..lol
@Antithesis thanks. Yes I am glad that I moved on to try other things. Ohhh I have a covergirl review coming up soon- it's for a new product.
@The frugalista yes ornamental is very cute...I think the Russian Red would look great on you!
@Nywele - no problem at all. I did look at constructivist and it sat in my shopping basket for a while but then I decided that it may be too bold for me..lol I may go online and pick it up now, the color is lovely. LOL at a makeup loan..lol

Great haul!

Ornamental is one of my favorites. I've started to buy Spring Bean several times, but always changed my mind.

@PBW thanks. I am really enjoying ornamental but you should check out spring bean. Keep in mind though it is really light so it will look like a gloss with a very light green tint.
