MAC Pink Pigeon vs MAC Candy Yum Yum vs Barry M Shocking Pink #52(swatches)

I was finally able to get my hands on MAC Candy yum yum in a MUA swap.  Thank you to the sweetheart who swapped for this!!  I thought it would be helpful to some to see these three lipsticks swatched side by side.  I've heard several times that Barry M Shocking Pink #52 is a dupe for Candy Yum Yum.  They are very similar, but in real life Candy Yum Yum is much brighter!  Out of all three, Candy Yum Yum is my favorite.  I wish it were easier for people to get their hands on, but the Barry M Shocking Pink is a slightly more toned down version and is gorgeous as well!  Enjoy the swatches!

  1. Thanks for taking the time to do this!! I couldn't get a hold of candy yum yum and I'm waiting for pink pigeon in the mail. I already have Barry M's shocking pink. You are so lucky to have all 3!!

    1. You are very welcome! I was only able to get Candy yum yum in a swap on makeupalley. I missed it when it was released. They are all 3 gorgeous though and that's awesome you got your hands on Pink Pigeon! I know a lot of people missed out on that one too!

  2. I do believe this is the best swatch picture comparing candy yum yum and shocking pink (I have the latter one) but awesome camera most u can't tell they look to much different and if u can, its not clear enough to know what is the difference.

  3. Thank you for this.. I hope you tried in your lips though..
