MAC It's Just Candy is a very cool-toned, medium red with a pearl finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
MAC It's Just Candy Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, pinky-red with lots of fine pink and red pearl with a few bits of sparkle. (I really just wanted to go with the obvious "candy apple red" description here.) The texture was smooth, light-medium in thickness but lightweight, and had moderate tackiness. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly, though in the close-up, I can tell it did not go on quite as evenly as other shades in the formula have for me. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
