Shocking Pink

I can’t lie!

I have been caught up in the hype over the return of MAC’s Candy Yum Yum however I still could not bring myself to drop £14 on a lipstick, so I went on a mission which just consisted of watching Candy Yum Yum dupe videos on Youtube. 

It was a long and exhausting road (exaggerating much?) but at last I found a dupe!

NYX’s Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink.

I had previously picked up this shade when I shopped at Beauty Joint as I wanted to broaden my lipstick colour collection, however being such a bold bright pink I was too scared to wear it out…until now.

I also knew I needed a good deep purple/plum liner to make this colour wearable on my skin tone. I had also been craving MAC’s Night Moth lip liner but I set myself the task of finding a cheaper alternative.

Say hello to Barry M’s lip liner in Number 11 Plum.

Combine the two together and viola!
