LOTD: MAC Candy Yum Yum "The Lipstick Dreams Were Made Of"

MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick is one I passed on when it first debuted thinking "do I really need ANOTHER hot pink lipstick". Then I saw Cyndi Lauper wearing it and I was kicking myself for not getting it. Thanks to MAC for repromoting the most wanted to the permanent line I recieved one as an early B-day gift...hey it doesn't count in the growing lipstick tally if you didn't buy it yourself right? ;) It's just as pleasantly pink as I imagined. This little baby would make a sweeeeet Lip for Valentine's Day :) 
The color is a neon matte blue-based pink that's surprisingly easy to wear and one so many can pull off, especially cool tones and omg it looks insaaaanely good on darker skin tones. The texture isn't as full coverage as some other MAC matte's, but there's something about the almost chalky finish that I find pleasing. This shade's a real show stopper on it's own so I like to pair it with simple neutral toned eyes (Too Faced Boudoir Eyes today) or mettalics at night. Pink Pigeon had previously taken the reign as my go-to shade for Winter, but Candy Yum Yum is slightly more punchy. Irrisistable even if you own a thousand other pinks. Get It.

I think this lipstick just made me dream I was in an 80's hair band....shredded guns n' roses tee. check, denim vest. check, jacked up hair. check, 80's lipstick. check...I don't care...
