Ever had one of those products you're just not sure if you want it or need it? For YEARS now I've been going back and forth on whether I should buy Mac's Candy Yum Yum. I tried it on at a MAC counter a few years ago and I thought it was a little too bright, I didn't know if I could pull it off. And then of course I kept seeing it on other people, and thought it always looked amazing. So for years I would look at it and debate whether or not I should buy it. Is it worth it? Would I actually wear it? It's definitely a statement lipstick. The final straw for me was when I went to my friend Kim's rehearsal dinner for her wedding, and she was wearing--you guessed it--Candy Yum Yum! It looked so feminine and fun, so I decided i'd finally purchase it.

Now here's the confession: It's been a month now and I've yet to wear it. Oops! I'm not really sure why, I'm still happy with my purchase and I don't regret it, but this lipstick is definitely not for the faint of heart. On my skin tone in particular it is BRIGHT, so let's just say i'm waiting for a special occasion to wear it.

Ever bought something you've been wanting for SO long and then...haven't worn it?


  1. I felt a bit like this about Warm Soul from MAC and I bought it and actually never wear it! I always forget I have it!

  2. I'm on the fence about Candy Yum Yum too. I wanted it but just not sure if I can pull it off. I came out the store with Impassioned instead.

  3. I have such a bad habit of waiting to buy something then buying it and forgetting about it! I think it's cause I still think i don't have it, but you should definitely just throw it on one day just for the hell of it


  4. Definitely will do! :)

  5. So naughty of us! ;p

  6. You can do it!! I can't wait to see you wear it! It looks gorgeous! ;)
