Drugstore Dupe For Mac Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick?

Considering Mac recently raised the price of their lipsticks (to £15.50 each, eek) finding good alternatives is more cost effective than ever. Luckily I may have just found a good dupe for a really popular shade!


Meet Pink Punch from Look, how scarily similar is this colour to Candy Yum-Yum. If you look at the swatch below, the only way you can differentiate between the two is Pink Punch's slight sheen, which Candy Yum-Yum doesn't have as it's a matte.

On the lips though, they look identical, it actually took me a while to remember which side was which haha. If matte lipsticks are a little intimidating for you or you just prefer a finish with a tiny bit of shine, this dupe is a fab alternative, plus it's £5 cheaper and it also comes with a matching lip gloss, which is on the reverse side, fabulous! I will definitely keep my eyes out for more potential dupes and if I find anything I will make sure to let you know.

Let me know what you think of this dupe, have you tried any "Look" products before?

XOXO Claire

  1. I was on the fence about this colour but now I can try it without dropping £15 on a MAC lippie x
