MAC Shy Girl Review

MAC Shy Girl review swatches

Your first MAC lipstick is somewhat of a right of passage. For me, it was the first high-end beauty product I ever bought, and luckily, I ended up choosing something I’ll be repurchasing forever more.

Housed in the usual black bullet, Shy Girl is a coral toned nude and happens to be one of my favorite natural shades. So what makes this lipstick so special? Well firstly, it’s in the much raved about Creamsheen formula. OK, so the wear time isn’t the greatest, but if you’re looking for a “my lips but better” kinda product, this is your go to. Think a slightly glossy lipstick that is easy to wear, goes with everything and provides the perfect definition for your lips. Seriously though, I’m yet to find a situation where I haven’t thought about wearing this lipstick; and I have a lot of choices.

So I think the beauty Gods were helping me a little when I randomly picked up Shy Girl as my first MAC lipstick. Although I might have just been playing it safe with a neutral color, I couldn’t have chosen a better one.

I am desperate to try more MAC lipsticks, anyone got any suggestions?
