This is a followup of the review of shade in charm in this post. Review of the product remains the same so this post is more like a color description and photos. :)

Rendezvous is very bright, straight up orange. It's a creme color, and it leaves the stain that is true to its color.
Honey is the most wearable color of the line in my opinion. It's toned down mauve pink. It has golden microshimmer but it's really micro. It looks like overall sheen and gloss and not so much from the shimmer. Here's the weird thing. The stain that Honey leaves changes color for some reason. It becomes quite bright pink after thirty minutes or so. Weird. The changed color is still pretty, and I like it. But it's a shame that happens to the most wearable color.

I thought these two were also very reminiscent of Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter shades so I did a comparison swatches.

As you can see, Honey and Pink Truffle are quite different. Pink Truffle has much more brown in it. Rendezvous and Tutti Frutti are basically the same color in my eyes. Of course, there is the intensity difference due to the formula difference but base color is the same.

I hope this helped! :)
