MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick

Sunday 20 October 2013

If you've seen my UK Haul video you'll know one of the things I picked up was Candy Yum Yum by MAC. I got this as part of the back to mac scheme when I took my empties back and was glad to find they had it in stock. On a side expensive are MAC lipsticks these days?!

Anyway, so when I got round to trying this baby out there was no surprise that I was going to have neon pink barbie lips. Normally I wouldn't of went for such a bright pink but I have to admit it goes rather well with my skin tone and I'm just a little bit in love with the shade.

The lipstick is really pigmented, so much so that I still had a little bit of staining the next day which I don't think I've experience before with a lipstick.

Like most MAC lipsticks, the application was easy, although I would recommend using a lip brush for such bright colours so you get a perfect outline as the tiniest smudge becomes very visible. The formula was also moisturising. The colour pay off is so good, you'd probably only need 1 touch up (if that) on a night out, this lipstick is not moving from you lips!

All in all, I think this is my new favourite bright lipstick at the moment and if you've been thinking about buy it you should, you won't regret it.

Do you like it, or is it too bright for you?


  1. this shade is one of the MAC lipsticks in my wishlist :)

  2. This is one of my favourite lipsticks of all time! It's the only lipstick I have still had staining the next day too haha :) x

  3. This lipstick is on my christmas wishlist and I've wanted it for a while but I've never seen it applied and it looks great!

  4. I'm a sucker for hot pink shades, but this one wasn't quite right on me. Looks stunning on you, though! Glad you're liking it :)


  5. Looks great! Works well on deeper skintones if you use a liner, like a purple one!
