MAC Lipstick | Candy Yum-Yum

Tuesday, 28 May 2013
Hello my pretties!

Oh, I'm sure you have heard me going on and on about Candy Yum-Yum. After having been using this for a while, I really have to say that it is definitely my favourite lipstick EVER! I originally had three MAC lipsticks which I really like but because my lips are very dry and peely majority of the time, I couldn't make them work on my lips.

Like I have mentioned before (I think), I've picked this up at Birmingham Duty Free during my Paris trip and Oh-M- Gee! It is definitely my best lipstick. Originally, I swatched it on my hand for a joke and was saying stuff like "haha, can you imagine me wearing this" because it was so bright and rather intimidating but my friend replied with "yes". That was it. Then into the checkout it goes. My advice: don't be scare of this neon pink!

Honestly, as a dry lips and dry skin girl, I usually run the opposite direction from the word matte. I normally go for glossy, shiny and moisturising etc. So, that is why this is the first Matte lipstick from MAC that I've tried. Initially, I was was very scared that it was going to be very drying and settle into my cracks and fine lines. However, it doesn't, it just give lovely smooth opaque finish. After having tried this, I would definitely be going back to check out more Matte lipsticks.

I normally apply it with a lip brush as I find that if I just apply straight onto my lips, the consistency would be way too thick and heavy for my liking. Although, when I can't be bother to use lip brush, I normally just lightly pat it on my lips.

As for longevity, this picture was taken about 10 hours after application!  Without any retouching. After I took a nap and ate my lunch and dinner and 3 and half hour train journey. Yup, you heard that right! You are probably are wondering if I like this bright pink lipstick or not, right?! Well, I don't like it, I LOVE it! I would recommend everyone to get it. It is the perfect bright neon pink lipstick that will grab attention without actually taking the attention away from your other features. 
You can get your own one at MAC for £14 or at House of Fraser 10% off Beauty starts tomorrow.

  4. Heya, Thanks for stopping by my blog Today :)

    This Pink lippie looks fab on you! I'm the same with dry skin/lips and tend to run the other way when it comes to matte lippies, but Mac is pretty good with the mattes. I find Nars Mattes are really hydrating too :)
