MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick

Hello dolls, enjoying your weekend?

A few weeks ago when I posted about my BACK2MAC I mentioned that I initially wanted to pick up MAC's Candy Yum Yum lipstick from the Quite Cute Collection but it was sold out (At all stores in Cape Town)
 Immediately after getting home I sent my cousin who stays in another city, Durban, a message on twitter to ask her if she would check if the MAC store there had it in stock.
And Guess What... She was able to get the last one for me! insert happy dance here!
She posted it the Monday and I got it in the week. I apologise for only posting about it now, but everytime I put it on (even if it was just in the house) I wasn't happy with my make up. 
This afternoon (well, it's evening now) I decided to play around and use Candy Yum Yum lipstick.

Anyway, onto Candy Yum Yum...
It is a BRIGHT pink lipstick! A shocking, neon pink! Definitely NOT for the faint hearted... With that being said, you might wonder why I did want it? (I'm the faint hearted when it comes to make up) As you know, I recently just started wearing a brighter lip and am just getting into it!
Well, the minute I saw it in store and swatched it, I fell in love with it! It's such a pretty colour!
After I asked the MUA to find out which stores had it and they ALL were sold out... I felt like I had to have it! (Talk about, dramatic!)

Much to my delight, my beautiful cousin Zara was able to get it for me! She went out of her way and I really appreciate it!
Thank you, Love you Za! ♥

Here are some pictures...

added some clear gloss
What do you think about it? It's totes bright and scary but soooo pretty!
I have not ventured out in this as yet as I haven't really got the guts TBH! LOL!! It's such a beauty and I really want to but, am still plucking up the courage to do it.

A BIG THANK YOU to Zara... Thank you love! 
When you come down to Cape Town in June, we can both wear it out together ^_^

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Big Bright Kisses...

PS... How many of you noticed that my scarf (used in the products pic of Candy Yum Yum) and my earrings are made from the same material?
Think they must have had left over material and decided to cover some earrings :)
Such a pretty floral scarf, don't you think?
