My Heart...and Complexion is Warmed with Clinique's Different Lipstick in Tender-Heart

On my quest for the perfect fall lip color, I came across this subtle hue of Clinique's Different Lipstick. Sheer yet buildable, Tender-Heart's perfect plum/brown shade warmed my heart as well as my complexion. Something about this lipstick morphed my pale face into a warm, glowing complexion. Sadly, the only nice quality of this lipstick is the shade. Tender-Heart lacks creaminess and long-lasting powder: two very important things when it comes to a great lipstick.

The Claim: Different because of its smooth, comfortable feel. Moderate coverage in a remarkable range of shades, from cream to pearl. Every one packed with rich emollients.

The Verdict: You could say it's comfortable, but NOT smooth. The colors are very sheer, but buildable. Rich emollients aren't detected at all. It just sits on your lips without moisturizing.

All swatches are Tender-Heart. See how buildable it is?
