Previously released in March 2011 in the MAC Quite Cute collection, Candy Yum Yum sold out at rapid speeds.
Several months ago MAC allowed us consumers to vote on favorite products to become part of their permanent collection. Candy Yum Yum, the highly coveted matte neon pink made the cut. It was released again last month.
This time around I was able to get my mitts on two tubes of it (I really love bright pink lipsticks). In case you are on the fence about it, check out swatches.
I have worn it a couple times. It shows up exactly as it is pictured above. It has pretty good staying power. I would strongly suggest exfoliating the lips first. Apply a very hydrating balm. It will wear and feel a lot more comfortable. If your lips are dry this lipstick has the tendency to show every single line on your lips. I paired it with a magenta liner.
Stay tuned for a separate post with pictures of me wearing it with a full face.
