My MAC lipstick collection #2- Bright Pinks

Hey Lovelies,

So it is finally time for the next part of my MAC Lipstick Collection. Sorry it has been so long since the last installment, which was the nudes. This time if you hadn't already guessed, I am showing you the Bright Pinks in my collection. 

So originally I had four written on my list, but after a long deliberation I have put one in my pale pink list. So instead, you are going to be introduced to three lipsticks.... prepare to meet Show Orchid, Girl about Town and Candy Yum Yum.
l-r Show Orchid, Girl about Town, Candy Yum Yum

First up, Show Orchid. Show Orchid is a Pro Colour, which means you can only get it at pro stores. As it is a pro colour, I don't have the MAC website to help me describe the colour and we all know that I am terrible at describing colour. So I am just going to leave the description at "a lovely fuchsia"

The finish of this lipstick is Amplified. Here's it on the lips....


Second up, we have Girl about Town. I'm not going to lie to you all. This lipstick looks nearly the same colour on the lips as Show Orchid. The only difference is that Show Orchid has a blue glitter in it. MAC calls Girl about Town a "Bright Blue Fuschia" and the finish like Show Orchid is Amplified. Here is the lip swatch...


See what I mean. I'm not sure if I was to repurchase, if I'd buy both as they are rather similar. Finally a lipstick that for most bloggers doesn't need any introduction. It is Candy Yum Yum.


Candy Yum Yum is one of MAC's Blogger Favourites because it is so bright. I find this lipstick the worst thing to photograph just because I never think that the colour shows up just like in real life.

It is described by MAC as a "Neon Pink". I have no arguments there, do you? I love this colour for summer as it is a pop of colour, which will not go anywhere as it has good staying power. Candy Yum Yum is a Matte lipstick but I don't find it pulls too much on your lips as you apply it.

So there are my bright pink MAC lipsticks. The next collection will be either:
  • light pinks
  • purples
  • reds
  • oranges

  1. I love the look of Girl About Town. My favourite Mac pink is Impassioned, such a beaut - not as bright as these but still a nice pop of colour, and quite easy to wear too.
