Mac Matte Lipstick - Candy Yum-Yum Review

I told you they'd be more! Number 2 review of my new lipsticks is here (Check out my review of Impassioned here)
Today it is all about Mac Matte Lipstick in - Candy Yum-Yum.
Candy Yum-Yum is one of the Mac lipsticks I have been umming and arring for so long about getting. Just the name has me sold - that seems like the best job in the world... making up names for shades -  how do I go about applying for this?! Anyway....

I didn't actually realise this was a matte shade - I'm so blonde sometimes! I only own a couple of matte shades but am definitely a fan.
Even though it is matte it still has a gorgeous sheen about it and doesn't feel drying at all.
I would recommend using a good lip scrub before using this too - lipsticks always need a good base to work well. 
TIP : If you don't have, want or like lip scrubs then invest in just a cheap manual toothbrush, use in a circular motions over your lips a couple of times a week for soft, flawless lips!
The pigmentation is, like all Mac lipsticks, gorgeous! Just one swipe gives a fabulous opaque colour - which like I said before is always what I look for in a lipstick.

If you like brights - this is the shade for you! A vivid fuchsia pink which stands out a mile will having you looking and feeling girly and glam in seconds!
Perfect for summer days and girl's night's out - this would go so well with both a simple daytime eye and a something a bit more full-on with a pair of false lashes!
What do you think then girls? Love it? Want it? Own it? .. or does a shade so bright scare you?
