Hayya Lovely's. Today's post is another lipstick post. This time it's on the well loved MAC Candy Yum Yum. I'm doing this post today because as some of you know, MAC is bringing Candy Yum Yum back out (online only) by request in their collection which is already out in the US, but I think it will be in the UK in the next few weeks. Candy Yum Yum was my first ever MAC lipstick and I'm definitely going to grab another one. Remember to enter my MAC lipstick giveaway!
MAC cosmetics Candy Yum Yum Lipstick - £14
MAC first released this colour in their 2011 spring collection Quite Cute and it was right up my street, and everyone else's as it sold out within a matter of hours.
Candy Yum Yum is a blue toned pink which would look good on any skin tone. This lipstick is VERY bright but I would still wear it through the day. I know most people would opt for this colour at night, which it is so perfect for, but I like to wear it both in the day and at night as I just love it so much. This colour also tends to make your teeth look whiter!
Candy Yum Yum is a matte formula which means there is no glossy finish, and it can be quite drying. Matte formulas are sometimes quite difficult to apply but I find the MAC matte formulas apply like a dream. Candy Yum Yum will stay on the lips for hours but I would recommend re-touching after a drink or something to eat. This colour is very vibrant that I would recommend applying with a brush to avoid any accidents.
Are you going to try get your hands on this colour?
Love Elysa xoxo
