Just In-MAC Candy YUM YUM-Review and Comparisons

Hey ladies! I just got Candy Yum Yum from the Quite Cute Collection in the mail. It is a really great lipstick. It is a MATTE finish, it applies very easily and is NOT drying at ALL! There is also no need for a lip liner with this lipstick because it does not feather all.

The color is BRIGHT! Some may say it is to bright for them, but I think you should give bright colors a try, especially for the upcoming summer months. Bright lip colors look amazing with a light eye, winged eyeliner and a simple blush.

Here is Candy Yum Yum on me:

On my cheeks is MAC Ruhbarb

On the lips:

Since it was such a gorgeous day today in CT, I was able to catch the sunlight for a outdoor pic!

I really don't own any color that comes close in comparison to Candy Yum Yum. It is a VERY unique color. In my mind, before I got it, I thought I might have owned something similar to it and then I thought Stila Caprice was going to be close in color, but it is not at all.

Me outside:

I also got these cute pins from MAC with my purchase. I have no idea why I got them, but I really love them:

Overall, I really like this lipstick. It is an excellent formula for a MATTE lipstick and I really LOVE the color. I am happy I ended up getting it :D

What do you ladies think of the lipstick? Do you have any bright lipsticks that you love for the summer?

It looks fantastic, however i think Nars schiaps or Chanel insolente could be close.
