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 :-)

    The packaging grosses me out to but I just kin a “kiss” the gloss and it works!

    Carry some hand sanitizer with you and it’ll be bacteria free…I think ;p

    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.

  11. Emma says

    Right now chrome automatically downloading an mp3 and starts it. I would like it to prompt myself with the discussion box and so i can choose where to save it. I’ve looked in options-> downloads-> view and modify actions and there is nothing at all set presently there that I can transform..

    I have a Blogger blog that is hooked up to my own website. The actual blog is linked off of the homepage. I would like to find out if which widget or something that I could put on my website’s website that will display my most recent blog posts. Not the whole post, but maybe just the headline and a link to go to my blog..

    For my Creative Writing class we need to write a short story, I really want to write some thing along the lines of Columbine, but I’m concerned about the reaction of my teacher. As far as I know, he does not have any personal background with the idea, but… We don’t know. What would you want to see out of a short story for a innovative writing class?.

    I’ve truly heard you can make money away from advertisers. Is it really a significant enough are make it worth it? Or does the real benefit in blogging come from the exposure you obtain? I’m a bellydancer and I dance at private parties and events. Just how could I make use of a blog to obtain more business? I’ve heard about people who have products to market using sites, but I actually don’t have a “product”, just me!.
