MAC Shy Girl Lipstick

Hey dolls,

Today, I want to show you all another of my latest MAC lipstick purchases. It's no secret that I am obsessed with MAC lipsticks-I want them all, LOL! Shy Girl ($14.50) has definitely become one of my favorite lipsticks. I have been wearing it quite often for daytime, since I purchased it this past spring. Take a look!

MAC Shy Girl Lipstick



I would describe Shy Girl as being a semi-warm nude beige, that contains a hint of coral. Shy Girl has a cremesheen formulation-which feels creamy on the lips, and it also contains small, fine shimmers. The shimmers go on very smooth, They are also not very prominent on the lips because, the glossy finish is there to distract-in a lovely way, of course. I have become quite fond of MAC cremesheen lipsticks. Application is always smooth, the colors are nicely pigmented, and the glossy finish it imparts is just gorgeous. Shy girl being no exception. I have dry lips, and I am so happy that Shy Girl does not enhance any dryness I may have.

As far as lasting power goes, it holds up pretty well-at least for me. It's usually 3-4 hours before the color starts to fade, and I have to touch-up. Overall, I LOVE Shy Girl and it's one of my staple nude colors. Looks great with a neutral eye for daytime (my favorite), or glam it up for night with a smokier eye.

  3. Shy Girl is a gorgeous colour and looks great on you. I have it too (of course! you and I seem to have the same stuff LOL), and my only concern is it seems creamier than my other MACs and it's melted so badly that I have to put it in the fridge for 20mins before using it every time, and not just in summer. I must've gotten a dud or something... disappointed.

  4. I like Shy Girl, but I hate the frost-like appearance t gives.

    NYX Pumpkin Pie is similar to Shy Girl, but I like it soooo much better.

  6. Lilit-> LOL! I think we are like makeup sisters :) I am sorry to hear that Shy Girl was too soft for you. Although Shy Girl lipstick has never melted on me, Creme D' Nude lipstick almost has. Now, that is one creamy lipstick. hahahaha.

    Rai-> I will have to check out NYX Pumpkin Pie :) I don't have too many NYX lipsticks, but the consistency is very nice, and smooth.

    Jessica-> If you decide to try Shy Girl, let me know how it works out for you. I hope you like it :)
