Like all the Ultra Slick lipsticks, Tender Love is a demi matte, moisturizing lip product that does not smear, migrate, or bleed into the tiny lines radiating from my lips. Initial application imparts a hint of gloss that quickly dries down to a satiny finish. Zero shimmer. When the color fades, I can blot off the remainder and then reapply over the stain left behind without going through the nuisance of a lip pencil. Or even a mirror! When I open the sleek, metal tube, I get a burst of fruit smell (wild figs) that is cloying.
Tender Love has been in fairly heavy rotation, but it's just slighlty too warm for me.
Bottom line: Comfortable, creamy, moisturizing.
