Hello Neon Lips…Candy Yum-Yum and Viva Glam Nicki
I have a thing for bright, and I mean, bright lipsticks. When I mean bright, I’m thinking almost neon. These colours bring me back to the days of Wham! and Wake me Up Before You Go-Go. If you’re too young to remember that, please bear with me
The latest to join my expanding collection of ‘neon’ lipsticks is MAC’s Candy Yum-Yum. It’s a colour that received a tonne of attention when it was Limited Edition. Recently, it became a permanent member of MAC’s collection (hooray!), and of course, it was only a matter of time before this came home to mama.
Candy Yum-Yum has blue undertones and is matte. Your lips need to be well moisturized or it ain’t pretty. Trust me.
If I was younger, I would wear it in all its glory like this.
But as a 40-something suburban wife/mom/career lady, I have to wear it a little differently.
I do the old pat it on the lips with my finger method. It works wonders. You should try it if you haven’t.
Candy Yum-Yum is not the only neon-like lipstick in my arsenal. I compared it to Viva Glam Nicki, the yellow-toned bright pink that I also adore.
They are very different though just looking at the tubes makes me want to do cartwheels (even though I don’t know how).
So there you have it. Neon lips a la Michelle.
What do you think of bright lips like Candy Yum-Yum?
