MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick : Swatch, Review And LOTD

Β 
So you think you know brights? Oh really? Neons? Fluorescents? Nope!! I bet you don’t know anything about a color being bright until and unless you have tried on MAC Candy Yum Yum. πŸ˜€ Traffic signals with their silly red lights should have been long obsolete by now. πŸ˜› You just need to hoist someone up wearing this lipstick and voila! You can stop the whole city πŸ˜› Lady danger was bright? Party Parrot? Humphh -_- Candy Yum Yum is uber bright! It was first launched with the MAC Quite Cute collection and owing to its huge popularity it has recently been made permanent

What MAC Says:

MAC describes Candy Yum Yum as a *bright pink* in matte finishΒ  *boooo! Understatement of the year!*
Price: 990 INR *now it has become permanent anyways!* πŸ˜€

My take on Candy Yum Yum Lipstick:

The lipstick comes in the regular black and silver MAC packaging with which we are all too familiar. πŸ˜€ It is sleek and travel friendly. πŸ™‚

The pigmentationΒ of MAC candy yum yum is kabooomm :D. Just 1 swipe makes it full blast-it can cover your lip pigmentation,flaws, hell it can cover up your nose along with it if you desire πŸ˜› and if you blotch it up outside your lip line..ahem..god help you!! My hand swatch refused to budge completely even after showering for 2 days! Strong color that!

The texture is matte as stated and as MAC Mattes go, candy yum yum is another of those full blast mattes to provide the boom! It applies nicely, smoothly without any dragging and does not really settle that much in fine lines or dry patches of lips, πŸ™‚Β but as the day wears on you might feel the need of hydration especially in the upcoming winters, so as I always say- do wear a clear lip balm with SPF under any MAC matte!

The colorΒ candy yum yum as stated by MACΒ as bright pink is duhhhh..it should have been underlined and mentioned as uber-bright neon pink with bright blue undertones to scare away/attract anyone anywhere! It is a true blue vibrant neon pink which I assure you is quite a task to pull off! Even the most beautiful lady may end up looking like a poisoned zombie with a bare face and this lippie. πŸ˜› You do need proper eye makeup and blush to balance and carry this off and a warm pink lip liner makes the task easier. πŸ™‚

It lasts on and on..on wipe away tissues, on hand swatches, on lips- Candy Yum Yum never really fades except with maybe a very strong makeup remover. πŸ˜›

It does not dry out lips by itself, yet a lip balm underneath makes it even better!
The pros of MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick:
  • Sleek, classy MAC packaging πŸ™‚
  • Awesome pigmentation- 1 swipe can cover up literally everything on earth!
  • Beautiful matte finish which applies softly and nicely without any dragging issues πŸ™‚
  • Uber bright, vibrant blue-based neon pink which if carried off with proper make up can transform every single thing and make people gape at you ^_^
  • It lasts on and on of course and does not go from your lips till you remove it πŸ™‚
  • Does not parch your lips!
  • Yummy vanilla fragrance!
The cons of MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick:
  • Has a tendency to emphasize fine lines..but then.all MAC mattes have that!
My rating: 4/5 πŸ˜€
Do I recommend?
If you have a thing for brights and lady danger is your only favorite color to light up your face then you may as well try this one out πŸ˜€ or if you are plain MAC mad like me of course you can get this!but really it is Too bright a shade for us indian women to pull off and make proper use of it honestly ! Those who think otherwise and force other people to look at them in this lipstick are just anti-socials who love to torture poor souls! These heavily blue toned shades look extremely flattering when the firaang ladies don it but us? Ahem..a warmer lip liner, heavy eye makeup, proper blush..then only it can be carried off properly! Otherwise its just apt for scaring away people πŸ˜› So..recommended at your own risk πŸ˜›

If you still yearn for more that means I haven’t shocked you enough with candy yum yum. ^_^ oh well πŸ˜‰ I will be back super soon with something else! Bye bye and be gorgeous <3

ETM Edit* This lipstick still looks so wearable on you Agni. I would never dare to wear it anywhere even though I love brights! πŸ˜€ But I still want to give it a shot at the store you know, to see how bad it makes me look. πŸ˜› And you should have included your picture wearing this. 😐 How else will people understand the true nature of this color. 3:)
