MAC Candy yum yum 

A pretty simple look from me today, I have really been loving a good old bold lip of late so I thought I would showcase a fairly new addition to my ever expanding lip product collection - Candy Yum Yum.
Candy Yum Yum, as the name suggests, is a matte, blue toned, bold candy pink, just the right amount of bold without verging into unwearable territory. 
 I think this colour is perfect for the summer months, it's the sort of shade you can slap on with everyday boring makeup and instantly makes you look like you've put in loads of effort - anything that saves me time getting ready is a winner in my book!
I would highly recommend this lipstick to any lip product junkie like myself, but if £15.50(?!?)  for a lipstick is out of the question then I really think you should take a look at the Bourjois rouge edition velvet lipstick in 'pink pong', not quite an exact colour match but the finish is almost identical (Bourjois applies as a liquid, drys matte) and for £8.99 they are practically a steal (sort of).

Highly pigmented
Long wearing
Vivid colour

Slightly drying on lips 
Can settle into cracks and sticks to dry patches 

Have you tried this lipstick?

  1. Love the shade of your lipstick! I'm always a bit bitter about spending over £15 on a lipstick, but I do it waaaay too often for me to say I'm never going to xx Rebecca - UK fashion blog
