Tread Gently is a sheer yellow-green shade with gold sparkles. When applied, the base color slightly pales out the lips and the shimmer gives a pretty gold sheen. This is my favorite tendertone!

Hot n’ Saucy is a very sheer red with no shimmer that adds a hint of color to the lips.

Purring is a vibrant orange that is also shimmerless, and leaves just a touch of orangey goodness on the lips.

Hush, Hush is a bronzey, shimmery shade that leaves bronzed shimmer on the lips.


These smell AMAZING. Fruity, strawberry-kiwi flavor that is sooo yummy. They feel great on the lips as well.. they’re not heavy or sticky and leave lips feeling nice and smooth. They also have SPF12, which is so important for keeping lips nice and lush!
The only thing I wish is that these were not in the pot packaging they’re in. It’s super unsanitary and keeps me from wanting to have this in my purse and keep it with me at all times. I really hate sticking my finger in glossy products, and especially when you’re out and don’t always have access to a sink and soap, the things that can get in the gloss is kind of disturbing. So love for these at home, or if you bring them out with you, take a lip brush with a cap, or one that retracts!

Available for $15 each from MAC Cosmetics.

    Saw these today… I ended up getting the strawberry patch and aloha stacks of pigments. Hopefully I can figure out how to use them without them looking shitty.

    I ordered Hush Hush online before it sold out. I’m excited to try them since I had heard you and Brooke talk about them on your channels :-)

    I’ve heard too much about these not to give them a try when they finally hit the store here in Belgium, but I also have major issue sticking my finger in a pot of gloss! I wonder why MAC has to keep them LE though. Apparently everybody adores them!

    I think you just convinced me to get Purring! I have Hot ‘N’ Saucy and was pretty content just to own that but you make Purring look so good!

    I’m “purring” over the beautiful orange tendertone. Kinda hesitant to buy another one because of the packaging being a pot.
