MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick

Sometime back in March I bought MAC's Candy Yum-Yum lipstick which was much sought after at the time. I didn't have the lipstick on my radar at the time but after spotting it in store I decided to buy it on an impulse buy to add to my growing hot pink lipstick collection.

MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick - £14

Candy Yum-Yum is a very bright hot pink matte lipstick with blue undertones and it is highly pigmented. I do find that on my skin tone it comes out slightly chalky looking on my lips but when I pair it with a slightly darker hot pink/fuchsia lip liner it helps to make it a lot wearable. Whenever I wear Candy Yum-Yum I use NYX Fuchsia lip liner where I firstly line my lips and then fill in my whole lips with the lip liner before wearing the lipstick on top of it. 

This is a great shade to be worn during Spring/Summer and will add an instant uplift to any outfit.

MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick

A couple of weeks ago I made the impulse decision to buy the limited edition RiRi Woo lipstick Rihanna was releasing in conjunction with MAC. When I first saw the images of the lipstick before it's release I wasn't at all interested but I am glad that I bought it on impulse when it was released in the UK.

RiRi Woo Lipstick

The RiRi Woo lipstick was inspired by MAC's Ruby Woo which is a classic matte red lipstick which practically everyone in the world owns and loves. I on the other hand haven't had great luck with Ruby Woo and I have not worn it for years despite having it both in my make up collectipn and make up kit. RiRi Woo is very similar to Ruby Woo especially when looking at it in the packaging however when swatched there is a very slight difference between the two lipsticks. RiRi Woo has a slightly darker undertone to it but it's not that noticeable. I on the other hand notice this very minute difference and appreciate it as I think it works well with my skin tone.

I never keep up with any of MAC's collections as I am not too fussed with limited edition items however I am now eager to get my hands on a few other items from the Rihanna collaboration especially the Heaux & RiRi Boy lipsticks.
