Mac shy girl dupe

My recent post on a potential mac lipstick dupe for speed dial which proved quite popular, so here's another  dupe post for you for another mac lipstick! As I mentioned in the previous post, love Mac lipsticks hate Mac price tags so it's always good to keep an eye out for similar shades which look just as lovely on! Todays is of shygirl (£14.50) which is my favourite nude lipstick and Rimmel's lipstick in 'notting hill nude' which is just £1!  

 As you can see, they look pretty similar in bullet form and both present as a pinky toned nude, perhaps shygirl is slightly lighter! What I like about shygirl is that it doesn't apply like a concealer nude (mac myth, I'm looking at you) so I don't feel like it washes me out - this goes for the rimmel shade too! 
top - shy girl 
bottom - notting hill nude 

As you can see from the swatches they are pretty similar shades of nude, both on the pink/coral side of nude as opposed to the brown or beige nude - which is something I like. I actually purchased my lipstick in a local discount store and had no idea what the shade would be like as I couldn't see through the packet, but I'm so glad I picked this up. I've tracked down an ebay seller where this is available for £1 so if you did want to get one yourself you can here, the seller also stocks Oxford St Fuschia which is a very good dupe for speed dial (see previous post). 

Will you be purchasing this? If you know any good dupes, please share them with everyone below! 



  1. I recently picked up the Notting Hill Nude and love it! I've never bought a Mac lippy, so I'm really glad for these dupes :)

    1. It's lovely isn't it! I do love mac lipsticks but can't always afford to buy them, so it's great when I find dupes :) xo

  2. Both shades are so lovely! :) I am going on a hunt for the Rimmel one this week haha. I am not a huge fan of nude lipsticks because they wash me out and I will give this one a try!

    I am running an International Giveaway on my blog now, and I'd love it if you enter for the chance to win some YSL, Chanel and Essie products! <3

    2. Hope you manage to find this Andrea! I feel the same about nudes, but this one works for me as it's quite pink/coral toned :) xo

  4. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say
    is valuable and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this
    website could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Very good blog!
