I really hope that MAC makes these permanent. I bought a Tendertalk balm last year and was thrilled to see it relaunched this year.

Side Dish appears to be a bright violet/mauve in the tube, but goes on as a lovely sheer violet. It's subtle and gives a nice MLBB shade (I'm NW15 with pink undertones). It's a great color when I want a hint of color but don't want to appear to have a full face of m/u. If I want noticeable lip color, I'll reach for something a bit stronger--MAC Syrup is my go-to l/s.

This feels nice on, like a good lip balm should. I reapply every 2-3 hours, which is actually not bad considering it's a lip product. It goes on smoothly. I don't think it's super-hydrating, but it isn't drying either.

I'm not really a packaging gal, but I love the rainbow-y tube too. It's a nice, distinctive departure from MAC's usual black packaging and fun.

Overall, I like the Tendertalk balms, and Side Dish is my favorite. If you're cool toned and/or like violets, this is worth a try.
