MAC Snob, Diva & Candy Yum Yum Swatches & Review

I still have a few more posts for the BFTE swatches but I thought I would take a break & show you my new MAC lipsticks. 
I purchased these a few weeks ago, I wanted a few new eye shadows & I thought I would add some fun lipsticks to my collection since it's free shipping on orders over $150 for MAC Pro.
So the colors that I purchased were:
Candy Yum Yum (Matte) - Neon Pink
Diva (Matte) - Intense reddish-burgundy
Snob (Satin)- Light neutral pink
Here are the colors swatched on my arm: Candy Yum Yum, Diva & Snob.
Candy Yum Yum:
I've wanted this color for so long but every time I went to place an order it was sold out & MAC was only carrying it for a short period of time. Well, right before I was getting ready to order, I got an email saying that it would now be part of the permanent line. To me, this is the epitome of a "Barbie" pink. It's bright & absolutely gorgeous! I will rock the SHIT (excuse my language) of this color. Plus, it's matte & I adore MAC's matte lipsticks. Actually, I think I may wear this color out tonight...
I went back & forth on whether or not I should buy this color. I don't own any colors even close, I tend to stay with neutrals or REALLY bright but not darker colors. I have fair skin so I get scared that I will look weird! However, I bought this because I don't have anything like this. It's such a nice burgundy red but I still feel like I can wear this with a lighter colored eye look. Maybe I'll be daring & use it with a pin up smoky eye since I feel like it could take the place of bright red!
My friend (who is also a makeup fanatic) told me that I had to have Snob. I love it & it's wearable for day or night. I feel like it gives the perfect neutral lip without looking to light. Myth is a favorite of mine, but when I am not tan it really washes my skin out so this is the perfect color to replace it for winter. It's very close to my natural lip color so it looks really nice with a darker eye look. 
So these are the new colors that I added to my collection.
Have you tried any of these colors?
