MAC released a new collection of lip balms that will be part of their permanent line. The Tendertalk Lip Balms are described as a smart lip conditioner that creates your own personalized lip tint based on your body chemistry. It provides the right amount of hydration and nourishment to the lips while giving you the right amount of color for your lips.
They’re packaged in a holographic metal like tubes which are pretty cool looking and the balms have a nice scent of vanilla which is not overpowering at all. They come in five shades of red, pink, coral, hot pink and plum.
The shades in the MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm collection are:
Candy Wrapped (sheer pink)
Pretty Me Up (sheer coral)
Play With Me (sheer red)
Teddy Pink (sheer bright pink)
Side Dish (sheer plum)
The MAC Tendertalk Lip Balms have a really nice balmy texture that feels hydrating on the lips and for a lip balm type of lip product they last pretty good on the lips. What I like about these is the tint, I prefer my lip balm to have at least a little bit of color even for everyday use.
The colors don’t vary a lot by shade since they’re pretty sheer so you’re not going to go wrong with either of them. The darker shades provide a little bit more color but even the lightest one that’s Candy Wrapped gives a hint of my lips but better shade.
Swatches of the MAC Tendertalk Lip Balms L to R: Play With Me, Candy Wrapped, Pretty Me Up, Side Dish, Teddy Pink
If you’re familiar with the Dior Addict Lip Glows these remind me a lot of them, they give the same amount of sheer color and have almost the same texture but with a fraction of the price.
The MAC Tendertalk Lip Balms are one of those no fuss lip products that you carry in your every day bag, they’re a great every day lip balm if you’re looking for something different than your regular chopstick. I think they give the right amount of color that you can wear them instead of lipstick on more casual or no makeup days so I see myself reaching for them a lot.
