I wouldn't pick a shade like this for myself normally, but hey it was free. I didn't have any problems with it being too sheer. I thought it had a lot of nice color. It was a very glamorous look because it was a dark sort of, well something. I don't really know how to describe the color. It somehow brightened my face a bit. Like I said before I would NEVER have picked this color for myself on my own. But I like it!
This is a great neutral cinnamon color that applies much sheerer than it looks in the tube. I am a fair skinned red head and this looks great on me. Very natural. A hint of shine, Very creamy and does not dry out the lips.
I got this as a GWP and I really like it. This neutral shade (kind of a pinky-brown on me) pairs nicely with my fair skin and subtly intensifies my natural lip colour. What I love most about this lippie is the formula; I usually hate the way lipstick feels on my lips and stick to balm or gloss, but this stuff has a creamy, moisturizing feel that doesn't dry out my lips. The lasting power leaves something to be desired, but again, the ones with lasting power often feel terrible on my lips. I like that there's no fragrance as well, so I can put it on and forget I'm wearing lipstick at all.
When I tried this color on at the mu counter, I really liked how it looked. My sister liked it so much, she bought the same shade in their spf gloss. I was really disappointed when I got home and tried the ls/ on. You can't really tell I am wearing lipstick. I have fairly pigmented lips and with this color, it doesn't even look like I am wearing l/s.
I was looking for a YLBB shade but this is too neutral for me. I just don't understand why it looks so much lighter at home. I do like the feel and smell of the lipstick but am disappointed in the color.
I would try this brand again but I don't think I would try another neutral.
I got this as a GWP. I normally wouldn't purchase a color like this because it just doesn't work for my skintone. However, the lipstick is very creamy and I do like the texture of it.
I first bought this about 9 years ago and I remember actually finishing the tube and scraping out what was left of it. I then became a lipstick fiend and bought every brand and shade out there. I just recently repurchased this lipstick and remembered why I loved it so much. The color is such a nice neutral. Really looks like my lipcolor but better. I love the texture of it. Not matte, not glossy. There's no shimmer to it just a hint of shine. No annoying taste or smell. I've fallen in love with it all over again. Will never again go without it :)
I love the warmth that Tendeheart delivers. This is a beautiful neutral shade that makes my lips just a touch rosier and plusher. The texture is very smooth, and glitter/shimmer free which is a nice break once ina while! It is not a glossy lipstick but it is not completely matte either, which I like. This lippie just makes it look like you wake up with perfect lips. I love it!
I have been purchasing this lipstick since I was 13 years old and saw it in Seventeen magazine :). I'm normally not a fan of neutral/nude shades, but when I'm in the mood for that family of colors, I always go for Tenderheart. It's the kind of shade that works really well on many complexions. I wear it with Clinique's Honeystick lipliner.
i love this product. i got it as a free sample when i bought perfumes for my mom and aunt for christmas. thought i'd give it a try and i have to say this is the only lipstick (in this color - tenderheart) that ever matched the real color of my lips. i have sensitive lips, it dries if i don't put lip balm on before i apply lipstick. with this i dont even have to put a lipbalm on. it's awesome, and it doesnt feel heavy. i love it
I think it is strange that the reviewer below me said that it darkened her already dark lips because this LIGHTENED my average-pigmented lips! I love this stuff though, just not this color...
