New MAC Lipstick | Candy Yum Yum

A review of MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick

Oh look another post about a MAC lipstick… I definitely have an addiction! The most recent addition to my collection is Candy Yum Yum. This is one which has been on my wish list for ages now – so when I went to duty free in the airport before my holiday I had to pick it up, it is the perfect summer shade. I love everything about Candy Yum Yum, the name is so fun and the colour is absolutely amazing. It is such a bright neon pink, I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere else.

MAC Candy Yum Yum - £15.50
Candy Yum Yum is a matte lipstick, which has quickly become my favourite type of finish from MAC. You might expect it to be quite drying on the lips, but I don’t find it drying at all, in fact I find it is slightly creamy on the lips when first applied which is lovely. The best thing about matte lipsticks is the staying power - when applied this lipstick lasts on the lips for a good few hours without budging and even when it wears off it leaves a bright pink stain that’s lovely as well. Another thing I love about matte lipsticks is they are usually so pigmented. Candy Yum Yum is no different, it is extremely pigmented and gives great colour pay off with only one swipe on the lips. It also has that signature sweet vanilla scent that most MAC lipsticks tend to have which is really nice.
When I was deciding if I wanted this lipstick, I googled it as I always do which helps to see the shade in different lightings and get more of a feel for the colour, I noticed how lovely it looks on all different skin tones. It is such a flattering shade, so if you are thinking this isn't one for you, or you find the neon brightness a bit scary - I recommend giving it a try. It might be your perfect summer shade - it definitely is mine!
