Would it be wrong of me to suggest that Candy yum yum is one of MACs most sought after limited edition lipsticks? If the re release of the bright pink wonder as part of the MAC by request collection is anything to go by, then I think its an acceptable statement. On top of this Candy yum yum on eBay (no doubt a fake lippie) sells within the region of £40 (say whaaa??)
After excitedly purchasing the fabulous Barbie Pink lipstick, and with all the stir over its re release I decided to compare it with other pinks in my collection to see whether it was really that unique! my opinion?? Candy yum yum has a cheaper and funkier packaged twin in the form of Jack Wills Hot Pink.Colour Pay off!!
Although not identical in their bullets, once applied Candy yum yum and Hot Pink are very similar in colour. Although Hot Pink is the darker of the two in the bullet its infact brighter than Candy yum yum once applied.
Both are matte and because of this I find Hot Pink to be somewhat drying, however its nothing a little lipgloss wont fix. In terms of longevity they both last on the lips for a reasonable amount of hours.
HOT PINK 9/10 CANDY YUM YUM 9/10
No matter how much I love the sleek black bullet MAC lipsticks come packaged within, Hot Pink has that extra edge with the gorgeous navy and pink stripes, offering something a little different.
HOT PINK 10/10 CANDY YUM YUM 9/10
As far as I am aware Hot Pink can be purchased from most Jack Wills stores, and if not their outlet stores. Candy yum yum on the other hand although recently re released as part of the MAC by request collection, has already sold out online, although may still be available in store.

Altogether both MAC and Jack Wills offer great Barbie Pink lipsticks!! Although Hot Pink is somewhat drying It is a cheaper and more accessible alternative to Candy yum yum!!
