It's true. I've never owned a MAC Lipstick until this week when the one I've been eyeing for a while, Candy Yum-Yum, finally arrived in the mail. I just LOVE this color! It's like a Barbie pink that is bright and extremely pigmented, unlike any of the other pink lip products I own. It smells like candied vanilla and is a lovely matte shade. I'm not the biggest fan of matte lipsticks but I just had to own this shade. The only complaint I do have about any matte lipsticks is that if your lips or dry or flakey, a matte lipstick honestly isn't going to look its best and may make your dry lips appear to be worse. Definitely make sure you use a lip scrub and keep your lips moisturized with a good balm prior to using one. Anyhow, I wore this shade all day to test its wearability and after eating lunch it barely looked like any of the product came off. I applied just a bit more before work and it held up throughout the night. I even woke up this morning with the slightest natural pink stained lips. Now, that's a good lipstick!

Do you own any MAC lipsticks? If so, which would you recommend? I'm definitely interested in trying another one with maybe a satin consistency.

Yay for your first MAC lipstick and you picked a really pretty color too! I haven't worn MAC lipstick in like forever but the Twig shade used to be a favorite.

I use to own MAC lipsticks back in my club days. I do not wear lipstick anymore. This color looks SO GOOD on you! Love it with the dark brows.

I really like the shade of this lip colour. I've not bought MAC makeup anymore, but maybe I will grab a few lipsticks in the future. :)
