By FAR, Candy Yum-Yum is my favorite lip product out of the ones shown. It’s neon, bright, and awesome. It’s also a matte formula, but isn’t as drying as matte lipsticks tend to be; on the lips it actually feels more like a satin lipstick.

Playing Koi acted more like a matte than a satin for me, but for my taste its a bit light. For me to wear this I’d need to use a lipliner that was just a bit darker on the corners of my lips to give the lips a bit more dimension, because i feel alone this lip color makes them look really flat and washed out against my skintone.

Quite Cute is super sheer. I’ve never used the Cremesheen formula, but the results are very sheer, which works with this particular color. I wouldn’t want to wear this alone if it was more opaque, but at this level it’s actually really pretty on the lips!

I ♥ U Plushglass is sheer like most Plushglass. I’m not big on lip plumpers in general, but Plushglass is definitely one of the least painful. It reminds me of getting novocain at the dentist haha.

The lipliners are MAC Standard. I thing In Synch would work really well for a nude lip to last for a long time!

These will be available from MAC Cosmetics starting April 7th.

    LOVING those lipliners more than I thought I would!

  5. Wren says

    For anyone looking for a light purple lipstick:
    Lime Crime has two that are much more opaque than “Quite Cute” from Mac.

  6. Patty says

    Candy Yum Yum looks awesome!
    How is In Synch compared to Subculture? Is it darker/pinker?

  7. Becca says

    That YumYum reminds me of the pink that was part of the Heatherette collection. Yes? No?

  8. vonnie says

  9. Emily says

    Wow I LOVE the light pink nude lipstick and pencil!!!!!!!

  10. Jane says

    How close do you think candy yum yum is to anime occ lip tar? is it worth having both? it looks slightly more purpley in the pic but it might just be the photo.

  11. Coral says

    Thanks for all the lip swatches! You’re amazing!

  13. Rena says

    Those lipsticks look a lot like the Lime Crime lipsticks in the tube. On the lips I’d say they’re much more sheer. Interesting.

  14. Shelle says

    Can you do a look with a lavender lip? I’ve been seeing the color around lately and want to wear it out…i assume its more of a nighttime look? I dunno, wondering what you might come up with

  15. Catherine says

    I’m drooling over Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick =)

  16. xasperadastra says

    You have the best playing Koi swatch all over the net!! It’s all your fault if I want it :D

  17. nikki says

    love them but for some reason as soo as i saw them i though “rip off of lime crime”

  18. Roseee says

    Wow! Playing Koi looks like Illamasqua’s Obey lipstick!

  19. Amelia says

    Candy Yum-Yum is my fav!!!

  20. Silke says

    Would u use a lipliner underneath candy yum-yum?
    If so, what kind of lipliner?

    1. xasperadastra says

      with naked lip pencil it becomes more wearable and less fluo ^^

  21. xasperadastra says

    Finally I have taken candy yum yum, naked and in synch! Playing koi was really awful on me :( it shows too many imperfections!! what nice dupe do you suggest?

  22. Eleonore Labeca says

    I will get mine (my Candy Yum Yum) thursday and the lip pencil in Boldy Bare. It just out in France so I’m glad to have it this week. I agree with you, for the lip pencil, as Trimmed in Pink is not repromoted, magenta appears to be the best lip pencil for Candy Yum Yum. C’est tout (that’s it). Voilàààà

  23. amber says

    oh gosh, candy yum yum. :) will be mine.

    I have to show my appreciation to you for bailing me out of this particular condition. Just after scouting throughout the world-wide-web and meeting concepts which are not productive, I figured my entire life was over. Living without the solutions to the difficulties you have fixed through the blog post is a serious case, as well as ones which may have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t come across your site. Your personal knowledge and kindness in playing with every aspect was useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a stuff like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your reliable and results-oriented help. I won’t hesitate to refer your web page to any individual who should receive support about this subject.
