The texture is best described as having a somewhat gel-like feel that is neither greasy nor sticky. It feels supremely comfortable and emollient on the lips, but if you don't like a fruity tasting lip balm you may not enjoy the strawberry-kiwi flavor. However, I do find that the flavor fades away a few minutes after application.
While all four shades appear quite pigmented in their pots they are very very sheer on- with almost no real detectable color. In order to get a swatch that was pigmented enough you would really have to scoop out a lot and apply it thickly- which defeats the point since you would never wear it that way.
1) Hot "N" Saucy is a soft cherry red (Limited Edition). It offers the lips a very sheer red wash of color.
2) Hush, Hush is a sheer gold with yellow gold pearl (Limited Edition). This one offers a wash of light golden pearl in a translucent base.
3) Purring is a sheer tangerine with pearl (Limited Edition). I have no idea why MAC says there is pearl in this one- it is very sheer, imparts almost no color, and has no pearl whatsoever. It just offers the lips a faint wash of color.
4) Tread Gently is a soft lime green with yellow pearl. (Limited Edition). This one also has a very sheer base, but it does have lovely sparkling green & yellow pearl.
