So for women of color out there that fall into the dark range I will say this: Lip liner is your BEST friend with this lipstick. Your best friend ever. Putting it on by itself I look crazy and like I got into a fight with my train case and lost, badly, but adding a lip liner (Silly from MAC if you want more pink, Nightmoth from MAC for a vampire lip effect, Fushia from Milani for an electric dark pink – close enough to Girl About Town by MAC – shade) makes this a wonderful color though.
MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “bright pink” with a matte finish. It’s a neon, blue-based pink with a matte finish. MAC Pink Pigeon is pinker, not as bright. MAC Show Orchid has iridescent shimmer and is a bit darker. MAC Quick Sizzle is pinker. OCC Nylon is similar–it’s a bit brighter, though. MAC Dear Diary touch less bright.
