M.a.c has recently re-released candy yum yum along side ‘moxie’ and ‘rocker’ as part of there most voted for favourites collection and it has been one hell of a struggle to get my hands on one as it has constantly been sold out but finally I managed to bag myself one.
Candy yum yum is a bright matte neon pink lipstick which all make up artists and make up junkies are going mad for and on photographs it looked like the perfect pink so I bought it. It arrived this morning and I’ve gotta be honest I wasn’t impressed with the colour as it is a lot more neon than i thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong it is an absolutely beautiful colour and I do recommend it, it just unfortunately is not a colour that I can pull off, anything too bright or neon makes me look like a clown. I love the feel of it on my lips and the finish, I love matte finishes for lipsticks. It cost £14 and there is free delivery on the M.a.c website until the 25th so go get yourself one before it sells out again!!
After I put it on I realised I already have a lipstick like this and that is Barry m’s lip paint in I think either shade 62 or 52, the sticker has fallen off so I cant be too sure but its definitely one of those shades and it only cost £4.49 and the colour is exactly the same, they are just different finishes, this one is more of a satin finish and has more of a creamy texture, where as candy yum yum is matte.
They are exactly the same colour so the only thing i can comment on that I prefer are the finishes so for that I do prefer candy yum yum. If you’re happy to spend £14 then go get yourself candy yum yum, if you’re desperate for candy yum yum but its a tad too pricey for you then go buy Barry m, you wont be able to tell the difference.
