Mac Candy Yum Yum: Lipstick Review

Mac Candy Yum Yum

I wore this shade today after quite a long gap and found it way too loud to wear it at work, so I decided to sober it down a little by covering it with a second layer of NYX stockholms smlc.It still looked pink, but without the florescent tone. Nevertheless , I still adore this shade for its smooth texture and bright pink color that gives my face a happy glow everytime I apply it. What I don’t like about this lipstick is the feel of the product on my lips after having it on for some time (1-2 hours). It turns very crayon like and makes my lips super dry. Always wipe off any product on the lips with a wet tissue and then reapply else, it would look cakey. Over all Mac Candy Yum Yum is a lovely shade. It is highly pigmented, has beautiful color pay off and like most Mac matte Lipsticks it stays pretty long on lips. This shade is quite a attention grabber because of the neon touch in it,so when you have this shade on be ready to get some heads turned 😉

My Final thoughts on MAC candy yum yum:
I love the lipstick for the reason that it is bright and lifts up my face even on days when I don’t put my makeup on. It is such a bright pink that I guarantee it will draw all the attention to your lips.  However, I feel it is not an unusual color either. Like paying 1450 rupees for this pink shade would not be a smart choice when there are similar shade available in different brands for much cheaper price. Talking about the dupe of mac candy yum yum , I suggest you to check out Shocking pink by nyx matte lipstick. They both look pretty same, while nyx matte lipstick is much moisturizing than the mac matte lipsticks. Price wise, Nyx is much cheaper. Have a look at the Nyx lipstick here:
