I wanted Lickable for so long, but it was always out of stock. Desperate to have a fuschia lippie, I settled for Girl About Town. And I'm so glad I did! The color is amazingly pigmented (as MAC claimed amplified cremes will be)-one swipe from the tube is all you need to get true color that lasts and lasts. On me, the fuschia pulled more on the pinkier side than purple, which I liked-this made the color extremely flattering on my pale skin. This wore well for hours, staying vibrant and bright, even after a meal. This feels creamy on and is only slightly drying after all day wear. I love this fun, girly color and would definitely repurchase!

At first when I sew it I thought it was very similar to NARS lipstick in schiap, because they both are bright pink lipstick. I was completely wrong Nars Schiap have a fuchsia undertone and MAC Candy Yum-Yum is just a bright neon pink .
Candy Yum-Yum is described as a ‘Vibrant, matte pink’ which I totally agreed!. It is not an everyday colour (depend on your style), its more like a bold, statemented colour which is perfect for the summer with less eyes make-up and I think it will look amazing with a tan.
I find this lipstick is very drying on the lips and after couple of minutes of wearing its started to set into the lines on my lips which I’m quite disappointed on that, I just have to make sure I super moisture my lips before wearing it. I think it will look amazing on ALL skin tones, pair it up with warm golden bronzer and glowing skin.
I can see myself definitely using this colour in the summer its such a pretty, cheerful,bright and pick-me-up shade.
Don't be fooled by the swatches of this shade, its best to try it in store with good lighting. Its a lovely coral/pink shade that can be worn in the day time at best. It flatters most skin types (I have a medium brown/olive skin tone), and its stay on time is around 4-6 hours on me. For a cremesheen I was expecting it to be ultra smooth on application (this is because my other cremesheen called "Cream in Your Coffee" is very smooth) but I found it to pull a bit, so I need to apply some of my Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protector cream first and then blot, and then apply this shade. One application is enough as it has great coverage. The smell, like all MAC lipsticks is amazing! And I get so many compliments when I wear it. I would definitely get another one when this one runs out :-)
All MAC lipsticks are brilliant no matter what finish you choose. The packaging is very sleek, modern, cute yet sophisticated. MAC lipsticks have a trademark vanilla/cupcake scent that makes me just want to eat it. MAC lipsticks are a definite fave.
always first choice
I have about 6 mac lipsticks now and can't wait to collect more ,they really are a brilliant product no matter which finish you choose. I find myself reaching for 'rebel' very often because the shade is beautiful but still very wearable. The packaging is sleek and modern , the trademark vanilla scent that the lipsticks have is something that is appealing to myself and the range of colours is phenomenal. I'm definitely a mac lipstick (and mac makeup in general) fan. :)
I have many colors but my favorite is snob omg I bought it and it sat in my collection one day I randomly put it in a hurry and fell in love I wear it most the time I have one other brand I use often the only down fall is if you do have dry lips u better moisturize a lot before cause there not as moisturizing as I found other brands to be
"High Tea" is almost like a shimmer balm than a lipstick. For me, this is great when I need a subtle lip look. It's quite moisturizing, and the lustre finish is sheer and flattering for casual everyday wear. I'm not even much of a regular lipstick wearer, but this shade has become my favorite MAC lipstick.
GLAM AND RETRO
MAC never fails and this is so true for their lipsticks! After passing this colour up for the longest time, I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase it. I wanted something strong, dynamic, bright, but still appropriate to my medium/brown/olive skin tone. Russian Red is a fantastic buy! It is a matte that goes on very well, does not dry at all and having put it on this morning at 6:00am, its now 12 noon and its still on, regardless of many glasses of water and tea :) I have had so many compliments for it, it lifts your smile even more and just wearing it makes you feel so pretty and sexy! I am so happy about this shade and just sad it took me so long to plunge into the 'reds' . Go buy it today!! Well worth the investment!!
