Last weekend I added another lipstick to my ever growing MAC collection (number 15 to be precise). I wasn't sure which shade to go for next but after seeing Candy Yum-Yum on Kayleigh and Chelsea's blogs I knew it had to be mine. I probably have ever lipstick colour under the sun, from nude to dark plum but my collection seemed to be missing a bright neon pink. I think the closest to this would be my Topshop Louise Gray lipstick in Legend, but nothing beats a MAC lipstick (well, maybe YSL).
MAC describes Candy Yum-Yum as a 'neon pink' which is definitely an accurate description, it's so bright and girly. It has a matte formula which is one of my favourite finishes from MAC as Lady Danger, Russian Red and Diva are all firm favourites of mine. I also love the amplified finishes as well. The only downside to the matte finish is that it dries your lips out after a few hours but as I love the way it looks I don't mind taking it off, smothering on some lip balm and reapplying it. I'd say this lasts around 3 hours before I need to touch up.
If you're a fan of bright lipstick then this is definitely one for your collection. As it's such a statement colour, it looks amazing with just a simple flick of black liner. I got this in duty free on my way to London so I paid around £12, but to buy online or at a counter it would be £15. What do you think of this shade? I love it!
