Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids in Fuchsia Flash- MAC Candy Yum Yum's shiny counterpart

In my recent post, I featured Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids in Brazen Berry and as I've said, I will do a separate post about Fuchsia Flash ('coz they deserved to be reviewed separately!). As MAC made Candy Yum Yum part of their permanent line, almost all the bloggers and gals I know bought one. You can read the raves on blogs, Facebook and Instagram posts too! The color's a very bright, almost neon pink and it's too loud already for my taste. I also thought that it would be a waste of money if I'll get one, only to end up unused in my traincase instead. So, I just want to try a lipstick first who has the same color of Candy Yum Yum  and see if I will like/love/hate it on me. hehe.

As usual, I searched on the internet about possible dupes, and almost all of the blogs I've read mentioned Maybelline's Colorsensational Vivids in Fuchsia Flash. So I bought it together with Brazen Berry (which is so pretty!) over at Bon Marche. Let's see if it is really a dupe.

And now, here's the actual comparison of the two. :)

 See? on the tube, they both look the same. The only difference is that Fuchsia Flash has a shiny finish compared to Candy Yum Yum. I have tested the latter over at MAC Alabang Town Center, and I must say, hell yeah, they did look the same! (well of course, but in different finish) Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids line has an amplified-like finish and is very pigmented. I love that it's like MAC's amplified lipsticks! (my favorite). It glides on so smoothly because of its creamy texture. I actually prefer this over Candy Yum Yum because it's quite moisturizing and has a sheen which for me, makes it very wearable. ♥ It's up to you guys if you're willing to shell out on MAC Candy Yum Yum or just prefer this one instead and save almost thrice the amount of money. ^_^
