MAC Shy Girl Lipstick - Review


Have you ever owned a lipstick that you simply can not keep hold of?
No matter how careful you are it forever seems to disappear only to show up after you've given up and begrudgingly bought a new one?
For me that seems to be MAC Shy Girl hence why it has taken me so long to sit down and rustle up a post with a quite colour summary and some swatches.


MAC Shy Girl is listed on the MAC website as an creamy neutral coral beige which is a long winded
way of deeming it to be a light peach nude shade, in my opinion it has yellow undertones 
and is neutral in tone.
Shy Girl is a great everyday nude shade that doesn't tend to wash out most skin tones
and is a great variation of a typical nude thanks to it's slightly pink/peach leanings.


Not only is Shy Girl a staple shade for many a beauty blogger 
but it is also rumored to be a firm favourite with Miley Cyrus too!
A combination of the perfect pinky peach shade and cremesheen formula - light, hydrating, glossy and soft,
make it a contender for a top spot on my list of must have  MAC lipsticks.
The only downside is that it is not the longest lasting formula with around 2 hours of wear per application
but that is what compact mirrors are for eh?

  1. I had this but sold it because it didn't really last long. Or maybe it was because I kept forgetting to wear it =/ but looking at the swatch makes me want to get it again!

  3. I got this lipstick not too long ago (thanks to back2MAC) and I have to say I adore it. You're right about the lasting power though. At least it's going to be quickly empty so I can return the packaging to MAC...and get a new one.

  6. I've lusted over Shy Girl for so long. I nearly picked it up last year in the airport . I so regret not getting it back then when it was cheaper than £14. It'll be mine soon enough ;)

  7. I think I must have been given a bad one because mine wasn't the typical creemsheen formula at all :( It was stiff and felt horrible on the lips. The colour looks much more pinky nude on everyone's swatches too!

  27. I was so, so close to picking this up in MAC the other day, if only I'd seen this post first. This looks like the kinda nude that won't make me washed out which is normally the case. Oh MAC, why do you do this to me - and my purse!?
