As much as I love the color of MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick, I can’t wear it alone. There’s something about the formula that makes my lips extra dry. The same thing happens when I wear the Viva Glam Nicki lipstick. Initially, the lipstick will go on smoothly, but about an hour later, my lips will look cracked & chapped. This occurs no matter how much I prep my lips ahead of time. It’s really strange. So I decided to top off the lipstick with a gloss.
￼I tried using the Revlon Superlustrious gloss in Sugar Violet on a whim. It wad the closest thing to Candy Yum Yum in my makeup bag at the time. I figured Sugar Violet wouldn’t change the color too much because it’s pretty sheer. This is the same lip I used for my Make Up Forever Smokey Extravagant Mascara Review.
￼I think it worked out really well. I’ve been wearing this combo a lot lately.
