MAC Kelly Yum Yum Lipstick Swatches & Review

Purchased by me/Contains affiliate links

Hey lovelies,

I'm back again with another beautiful lipstick from the MAC X Kelly Osborne collection, Kelly Yum Yum. This collection was released on NZ counters earlier this month and I suspect is now sold out given how quickly it disappeared in the US! Not to worry though, if you have your eye on this lipstick I have seen it on Trade Me, and you can also pick it up through MAC sales groups (which is where I got mine), Amazon or Specktra.

I love love love the packaging of this collection! I compared it with the retro Dame Edna collection in my review of Dodgy Girl.

Kelly Yum Yum is a stunning bright blue based pink with a Satin finish. Being a reinterpretation of the cult favourite Candy Yum Yum, of course I had to compare the two for you! Candy Yum Yum is much bluer and cooler and is a Matte finish, so I can definitely justify owning both (but then, I can justify owning 50 billion red lipsticks XD). 
The wear time on Kelly Yum Yum was phenomenal, the colour is very saturated so it stains the lips. This could be a con for some, but I like it because even if the lipstick fades in places it still looks good for longer because of the underlying stain. Kelly Yum Yum doesn't feather, bleed or migrate and was neither hydrating nor drying.
