So far, this week has been rather gloomy. I have a bunch of deadlines, it’s cold and cloudy, and almost everyone around me is wearing dark colored clothes. Myself included. That’s why I decided that my life needs a bit of color in the form of a lipstick.
I bought Candy Yum Yum by MAC, and I am not regretting it. I have a few MAC lipsticks, but (ironically) all of them are dark fall lipsticks. This is my first bright color.
Candy Yum Yum has a matte finish. If you don’t have a lip primer, your lips might feel a bit dry by the end of the day. Alternatively, you can also use lip balm. Personally, I find Candy Yum Yum less drying compared to other matte Mac lipstick colors that I own (e.g. Cyber).
Nonetheless, I like to moisturize my lips the night before I’m planning to wear a matte lipstick, and right before I apply the matte lipstick. If matte lipsticks are your favorite, I’d also advice to exfoliate your lips once in a while; otherwise, you might end up with cracked lips.
This is what Candy Yum Yum looks like on light skin. MAC promises neon pink and they deliver. In addition, it’s an unbelievably long-lasting lip color. Easily lasts up to five hours.
Candy Yum Yum also leaves a soft pink stain on your lips, when you wipe it off with a tissue, that actually looks pretty cute.
