MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick

M.A.C Candy Yum Yum lipstick £15
available online and in stores

This is one of those crazy, dare-to-wear lipsticks that has been topping my wishlist for a while now so when I was at the MAC Pro Store opening party in Covent Garden last month, I finally took the plunge and bagged this little beauty. In a nutshell, this lipstick is bright pink with a matte finish. Despite the matte finish, the consistency is smooth to apply and doesn’t feel at all drying on the lips. It is definitely a show-stopper shade and one that warrants a steady hand and preferably a lip brush to apply but with a simple cat eye flick and lightly bronzed skin, it is definitely one of the most fun colours in my collection.

    This colour is unbelievable, I love it! I have a really light pastel pink from Barry M that I always wear on night outs, it's really vibrant like this one, really love these bright opaque lipsticks 🙂

    Such a beautiful shade!!! Love it…although this is more of a summery colour this looks great when the weather is miserable and we wear darker colours to contrast!

    I don't know if I could rock such a bold color, I'm typically a neutral kinda gal! It is so pretty though, I love the name too 🙂

    I've bought this recently but returned it as it just didn't match my skin tone. It's a lovely shade though! My favourite bright lipsticks have to be Impassioned and Maybelline's Shocking Coral x

    I have this too and it is really beautiful!
