Product Review: MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner - Gentle Coral *edited with lip swatch*

This product deserves a review but I don't know why I have not reviewed it yet when I have been using it every single day since I purchased it last August. This has been a staple on my kikay kit and I bring it with me everywhere I go. I first had it late last year ('08) but I lost the pot, silly me. -_-

Anyway, I wear this alone most of the time since I am a sucker for tinted lip balms. I like how it brightens my face and the tint it gives my lips is just enough. So it's about time I make a review for this much-used product of mine.

What I like:
- Gives a hint of color that is just enough to brighten my face.
- Can be worn alone or under other lip products.
- Keeps my lips soft and supple.
- Moisturizing
- Doesn't feel greasy or oily
- Applies smoothly on the lips, the texture is amazing
- One pot contains 15ML of product which is not bad for PHP950 as this will most likely last me for a year even with everyday use.
- It has SPF15
- Locally available at Rustan's MAC counters.
- The chocolate-y scent is not too overwhelming for my nose and smells yummy.

What I don't like:
- I have to dip my finger on it if I don't bring a lip brush.

Overall rating: 5/5 I gave it a 5 because it is the product I am after and not how it is packaged.

Will I buy again? Definitely! Which is most likely to happen next year. :P That is if I finish this pot in a span of one year. This is definitely my HG tinted lip balm.

Here's how it looks after 4 months of everyday use.

There is certainly more than half of the product left which makes the price worth it. :)

Have a great week everyone! It's almost Christmas. Don't you just love the Christmas breeze?!!! I do. ;)

EDIT: Here's MAC TLC Gentle Coral on my lips.

  13. Great review! I love the look of the TLC's, but I've never bought any since I have quite a lot of lip balms =/ LOL
    XO, Happy Christmas!

  14. Hi Marce. You must be a lip balm girl then. Happy Holidays! :P

  15. This reminds me of Bloom's Sheer Colour Cremes.

    I have a question though, how do you sanitize these types of products? I spray alcohol on a cotton pad and wipe the top part. I don't know any other way. Do you have better ideas?

  16. @Rae I spray antibac sprays on a wet tissue, put the tissue on top of the cream product, tap it gently until you cover the entire pot (product) then remove it. Then do it again once or twice. :)
