I missed out on MAC colour crafted lipstick as i was on holidays in Samoa at the time (no lipstick in sight!) and ever since i have wanted to get my hands on one. I came across this on Laura's (lollipop26) blog in my search for a dupe. She said that NYX Acapulco was pretty much a dupe for colour crafted, so i ordered one!
The lipstick is okay but i haven't been overly impressed. It's from the black label range so it comes in a cute little black container with a lace pattern printed on it. It also has a clear section in the bottom to see the colour which is handy when trying to find the item in your makeup bag. It smells exactly like grape hubba bubba bubble gum which i love but is a bit of a weird smell for a lippy - it's like being 8 again!
The colour is great, it's a sweet sort of girly pink. It has great pigmentation for a cheapy lipstick and can be worn sheerly or packed on for a brighter colour.
Acapulco applies easily and smoothly but my one major gripe is that it does not last. The texture is so creamy that it will not stay put! This means it is not drying which is great as i suffer from really dry lips but that's useless if it doesn't last.
I will not be repurchasing this lipstick and will probably not use it that often as I can be really lazy at touching up :)
So the search continues for the perfect pink! Anyone have any suggestions?
