Tendertones are something that have grown on me over time. My first purchase was just a bust and I was incredibly disappointed with how sheer they were plus I wasn’t particularly excited about the pot, I’m not a lover of potted lipglosses.
But they really wriggled their way under my skin and into my heart and I’ve actually finished off a few of the shades I own. Gasp! Whoa right?
I was quite excited about their return in the MAC Cook Collection.
Let’s take a peek!
MAC has released four shades of Tendertones with MAC Cook. This is either a cause for great excitement for you or you’ll have a blah I’ll pass moment.
I urge you to check them out if you’ve never tried them or tried them before and wasn’t impressed. I haven’t had my hands on Tendertones since the original release in 2008 so I was quite surprised that the formula seemed better in many aspects.
Seems like these are glossier, tastier, and overall more brilliant for some reason. I dunno what MAC did but count me impressed at how delightfully soft the texture runs on these and how incredibly shiny they are on my lips.
The shades aren’t too shabby either. Made up of bright reds, beige, yellow, and coral, these colors are a kaleidoscope of fun, funky colors for Spring.
- Hush, Hush (sheer golden beige)-Might I suggest a peach stain or lipstick under this one. It just makes lips pop when worn on top of your favorite lip stain.
- Purring (tangerine)-This is a stunning little orange-y tangerine that’s completely wearable. Thanks to the sheerer formula you can easily wear this on top of a peach lipstain or lipstick and get a very nice (not garish) orange-y shade of lovely on lips.
- Hot n’ Saucy (cherry red)-So very lovely for enhancing your own natural lip color.
- Tread Gently (soft lime green with yellow)-A very unique shade of light, yellow-y lime.

Overall, MAC seems to have improved on an already terrific formula (don’t forget they also contain SPF). If you’ve tried them before and weren’t so impressed I urge you to have another go as I used to be one that disliked them but they tend to grow on you with time plus add to the fact this new and improved formula is rocking and you get a Muse Approval here. But beware if you’re sensitive as they have a fruity taste and scent!
Grab all four, go wild.
