    I seriously hope we will get this collection here in Germany. I don’t have much faith left in MAC but I can still hope, right?

    Dear Diary and Candy Yum Yum are quite similar in that they are both pretty neon. Dear Diary is a bit darker, in my opinion, where Candy Yum Yum is a little more bubblegum neon pink. Hope that makes sense. Equally really bright and equally really pink. Equally really great. All in my opinion, of course :)

    Christine you have both the original Candy Yum Yum from quite cute, and from by request right? Are they they same? Because even though I know your studio lighting changed, the swatches for the by request look significantly less neon like, and also lack that purple tone that the other swatches have. And I don’t see how lighting would completely change the color.

    To let all those who missed out on CYY it’s back on stock at the Mac online store including moxie! Hurry! :)

    I was able to purchase mine but I’m assuming they sold out already! :(

    Hi I am NOT Christine ~ but I can give my opinion Amanda. I have both – old and new. I admit the NEW Candy Yum Yum looked a bit different in the tube, but I just tried it on my lips and it IS the same as the old.

    I’m still really disappointed that they didn’t have Smoke and Diamonds eyeshadow released. It’ soooooo beautiful and soooooo rare! you can hardly find it. Instead we got guacamole?

    I was so happy when I received my cyy movie and rocker last Thursday especially my cyy it was all I expected and more now if I could only get that light bluish green color fr that collection but that’s a nother story

    Hey Christine. I have a question…is it just me or does it seem like the Candy Yum Yum that just came is not an EXACT replica from the ORIGINAL Candy Yum Yum from the Quite Cute collection in 2011. Comparing them side by side I feel like the 2011CYY has a more neon look to it and has a stronger blue glow to it. I could be wrong…but I know your the expert and I’m SURE you still have your original CYY with you to compare with the 2012CYY. I would really appreciate your feedback. Thank You ahead of time.

    Is this available online only?

    Hello Christine, even though you already said you wasn’t sure when this was going to be released online internationally. I was wondering if you had been told any more information on the dates, or if this collection is even coming anywhere else. I’m desperate to get ahold of a few items and any information you have would be a help. Thanks!
