Without a doubt, I’m super cray over my favorite piece from the Kelly installment of the recent MAC Osbournes Collection—Kelly Yum-Yum lipstick. Okay, so bummer. It’s currently sold out on maccosmetics.com, but that doesn’t mean you can’t charm your way to a tube at a MAC counter somewhere; either at a MAC store, or a department store with a MAC counter. You’d be surprised what you can get with a little bit of sugar versus vinegar! I can’t promise anything, but I swear it will never hurt to try.
Like the rest of Kelly’s part of the collection, the components are purple that mimic her various shades of purple hair she likes to rock. It’s also emblazoned with her signature in red. The interior says “MAC” in purple on the black area where you twist the tube. I like the small touches of detail of the packaging with this celeb-inspired collection.
Kelly Yum-Yum is the kind of pink I am known for wearing. I wear a pink like this for almost any occasion I can get away with, without looking like a crazy lady. (Like when I’m in yoga pants, flip flops, last night’s T-shirt, and a second-day pony-tail inside the grocery store. I probably wouldn’t wear Kelly Yum-Yum in that case. Just saying.) It’s a delicious, creamy satin finish in a gorgeous bright blue-pink tone. Perfect for cool-toned lassies!
Not cool-toned but still love it? Don’t let that scare you! You make your beauty rules, so you can break ’em. Wear that Kelly Yum-Yum, girl. Because it’s awesome and demands immediate attention.
I find Kelly Yum-Yum to surpass four hours for me, leaving a little bit of a pink stain behind, without overly drying my lips in the process. If you like it, I hope you can get your paws on it soon.
