Rate That Lippie: MAC Candy Yum-Yum

So as you know, I was quite excited to get the only thing I wanted from the Quite Cute collection, CYY. Now, however, that excitement has faded from a full flame to fizzle.

Swatch: MAC Candy Yum Yum (top) vs. MAC Impassioned (bottom)

And here's theeeeee rant...First, the smell of my CYY is only SLIGHTLY vanilla and smells closer to a box of crayola crayons than a lipstick. YUCK! (Can I return for this reason?) Second, the finish is TERRIBLE! I read reviews that said they like this consistency over the regular mattes and I disagree. Mattes are one of my favorite finishes, my lips were well moisturized and I wore CYY for several hours and I still didn't get quite used to its almost powdery feel. (YUCK again). On the bright side it is a very beautiful color.

 I later added Athena's Kiss lipglass on top which darkened the color a bit but made the finish more wearable. I give this lippie at 2.9/5 and that's simply because the color is great. Everything else is a fail. Also please be advised that this lippie is truly a NEON pink. With that being said, MAC (IMO) had nothing worth having to HAVE out of this collection. They really need to step their game up. I'm "Quite Disappointed" with Quite Cute, however I did get some VERY cute pins from MAC with my purchase =). Did you loves pick up anything?



  1. I was thinking about getting that lipstick, maybe not now lol. looks beautiful on you tho!

  2. Thanks! I do love the color. But the finish is way off. Maybe I just got a bad one :/

  3. Your banner picture, damn that's hot!

    CYY looks great on you, sucks about the finish. I really, really want this color now. I just want it to have it, I am kinda like that.
    The swatch looks like Pink Friday...

  4. Lol, thanks! And I can understand I'm like that too =) And the color is FARRRRR from Pink Friday. Closer to the neon pink in my blog wallpaper. Xo
