I don't know what took me so long to get MAC Candy Yum Yum, but I finally did! It's the fun-est lipstick shade I have added to my MAC lipstick collection, it is also the brightest. Candy Yum Yum is a matte hot pink, almost as bright as a glow-stick! And yes it is a very daring hot pink, I slowly worked myself up the brightness ladder with Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in 902 Fuchsia Flash, which is also a hot pink but more toned down. To be honest I didn't wear pink lipsticks until very recently, but I wore plenty bright shades [reds and oranges], and now I adore a nice hot pink lip!
Although hot pink lipsticks are really daring, some shades can be very trendy and fresh looking, Candy Yum Yum is a great example - it really brightens up my eyes and makes them pop, which I adore! I love wearing it with the Dior Rosy Glow blush in Petals, which is also a fantastic fresh pink shade that really lifts the face and makes you look super rested and youthful!
