Candy Yum Yum no better summer lipstick!

2014-08-13 15.11.48

Before I get into this, can we have a moment of silence for these bags that are forming underneath my eyes? lol!!  Anyway, I am all about my pinks and bright lipsticks and I have many different ones that I love however MAC’s Candy Yum Yum is above all. It’s such a daring, bold, stand out neon pink colour. I’ve done looks with it before and I probably will again! It’s a perfect summer , fun and sexy shade.

My mom has really bad under eye bags. Like really really bad. So did my grandfather. I hope and pray I don’t get it like that as it seems to me hereditary. Anyway…


With such bright coloured lipstick, eyes should really be neutral or even completely bare.
I paired it up with some shimmery eyeshadow from Essence called Vanilla Milkshake. It’s a nude (off white if you’d like) pearly mono shadow.


Also I’ve applied a bit of bronze on the outer corners and the crease from Essence as well called Sandy says Hello.

  1. 🙂 Hi, you might have seen that I am presenting a lot of the new essence products in English and German that will be out on the shelves end of August in Germany and Austria and – I believe – beginning of September world wide.
    Do you use essence products too? Curious to meet someone on the other side of the ocean who likes them, too.
    Though it could well be, that not all products are available world wide.
    Have a very HAPPY evening! 🙂

    1. Hey yes I love Essence cosmetics and use it quite a lot! Here, in Toronto, I find it’s very limited and hard to find. Only one drug store carries it and most have a few times only. I have found two of these stores that actually had an aisle! I was so excited lol

      1. 🙂 I was invited to attend the presentation of the new essence products in Munich 10 days ago. Came as a big surprise to me…but what a lovely one! 🙂

        I will do a world wide essence give away – roundabout the 22nd – so stay tuned 🙂

  2. Hey beautiful you look great and this color is so pretty! It’s unbearablt hot over here and I have barely even touched makeup this month! Hope you’re doing well lovely ❤ Xxxx
