REVIEW: MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick!

It's March already! Hopefully spring will be here before we know it! With spring on it's way, comes the time to whip out all those gorgeous bright lip colors! No better way to celebrate springtime and the very hot Radiant Orchid color of the year hues than with the very popular Candy Yum Yum by MAC.


Ouchhh! Doesn't that look simply sizzling? Lord knows how close this lipstick is to my heart! ^-^
It's definitely a very bold blue toned pink and will stand out on all skin tones beautifully. It's a matte finish so it can be drying especially if you already have dry, chapped lips. A single swipe is good enough for full opacity but I also love wearing this just dabbed all over the lips in a more muted but still bright enough to pop. Like all MAC lipsticks this one retails for $16 although initially it was a limited edition that turned permanent by request. The color lasts well 6 hours and sometimes more (and I'm talking full meals in between) and then I reach for a touch up or if I don't it leaves a beautiful stain, but the lasting power of MAC lipsticks is obviously no secret. It's also the same familiar vanilla scent all lipsticks by MAC have which I absolutely love.

The color is NEON and just perfect for spring summer statement lips. If you shy away from such colors or want to try something close without spending a lot, try Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids lip color in Fuschia Flash which is a creamier, less intense version but very similar to Candy Yum Yum which is just a touch lighter and brighter along with being matte. Afraid the neon is too much? Layer it on top of a deeper red or berry lipliner or add a translucent gloss for a muted yummy bubblegummy pout. Don't forget to wear it like a boss! Rock that statement pout!

To conclude, the lipstick is a killer for sure, in all the right ways! If you dig bright pouts and neon makeup, this is a must have in your makeup collection! If you dislike mattes and bright colors, then you should skip it! To order it in Pakistan, get in touch with MAC Addict on Facebook or simply order via the official MAC website!

LOVES:
-Smells divine.
-Packaging is sturdy yet luxurious.
-Permanent lipstick at the MAC store.
-Matte finish.
-Incredible lasting power.


DISLIKES:
-Can feel a tad bit drying if lips aren't prepped.

My Rating:
5/5: Favorite lipstick everrrr!

  3. I love this color & i was about to purchase it but when I tried it on it looked really odd on my face. I ended up purchasing Ruby Woo. It looks stunning on you.

  14. Yes, It's definitely a very beautiful blog about lipstics. All colours are so beautiful, stunning and gorgious. But I use maybelline lipcolour which is also very beautiful and stylish. My lips are so rough and crecked but when I use maybelline lipsticks my lips becomes soft and smother to get the best result I suggested you maybelline lipscolour. you can easily access maybelline products in Pakistan through online shopping stores.
