If you love the Barbie pink lipped look, everyone knows your best bet to achieve that look is Mac’s Candy Yum Yum. But since MAC is so expensive these days, we went searching for a dupe that could come close, and Milani’s Rose Hip comes pretty damn close.
I’m going to start off with the smell, because I just can’t get enough of it. It smells literally good enough to eat, and that’s just a huge plus for me. For those who couldn’t care less about how it smells, the Milani Rose Hip is a nice, very pigmented, hot pink shade that gives the Candy Yum Yum a run for it’s money. It looks like almost the exact same shade of pink, if you compare the two closely, although to me, the Rose Hip, is a tad brighter than the Candy Yum Yum.
It stays on forever once you put it on, and you only need a swipe or two, to get enough colour on your lips. It is also a faction of what MAC’s Candy Yum Yum costs.
If you are sold on it or just want to try it out because it seems too good to be true, you can get it for 1,800 naira here. But if for some reason, you want to stick with the Candy Yum Yum you can get it for 7,500 naira here. Which just happens to be the same amount as four Rose Hips, with some change.
