Sally Girl Mini Lipstick in Shy - Review

Good afternoon, lovelies! :D

My favourite type of makeup to wear is lip colour.  Even if I am wearing nothing else on my face, a bold lip makes me feel more confident and put together.

I've always been a fan of reds, and lately I just cannot seem to get enough of them! :)

So, during my last trip to Sally Beauty Supply, I perused their mini Sally Girl makeup collection near the cash register, as I have had many good experiencing using their cute and rather inexpensive makeup.

I picked up Shy, which is a semi-sheer bright red.

This is a blue-based red, which makes it great for skin with red undertones.

When it is on, it looks a bit red-pink:

(I tried to adjust the colours to make them more true-to-life, but they look super bright here as I had to use my flash.  The colour is a bit darker and deeper in real life.  Also, please excuse the messed-up blurring, I meant to blur around the lips so I could focus on the lip colour and not my skin, but I was a bit overzealous! XD)

The coverage is really decent, and what I like most about the formula is that it is really creamy, and not drying. :D

This is slightly sheer, so it does fade faster than a matte lipstick.  I would like to tell you how long it lasted on me, but I drink tea all day and smoke, and I don't think my experience would be very helpful. XD

I really like that with the Sally Girl cosmetics, you buy them in mini-sizes, which makes them very economical.  You can try a bunch of them for a very small cost, and not worry about wasting much money if you don't like some of them on you. :)  (Also: you can easily take these with you, as they don't take up too much space.)

I would suggest using a lip liner with this, as it can bleed a bit outside of your lip line.

Have you tried any of the Sally Girl mini lipsticks before? :D

Have a great day!



  1. The colir is nice, one thibg that i like is that they are avaliable in economical mini syzes so we can buy variety..

    1. I love that about them too! :D So handy, and then you can try so many for such a low price! :D

  2. That color is pretty! I wonder if Sally's here carries in Toronto we don't get all the same things the US, we don't even have the GVP brand and that is a Sally's brand lol

    1. Oh, I am in the Ottawa area, so you probably will have them :D

  3. very pretty color! really suits you.

  4. It's beautiful~~ I think this is the kind of lipstick that will match me, since you mentioned its for those with red undertones ^_^ I have something similar to this from Shiseido, and I think it is really pretty on you my dear!

    1. Thank you so much, Celly!!! :D I bet this would look stunning on you!!
      OMG I LOVE Shiseido!! :D

  5. That colour looks fantastic on you! I love, and most often wear, red lipstick, too. It's so classic, feminine, and beautiful, all of which this Sally shade embodies. I just about always wear lip liner with my lipstick, be it colour or clear, or if, not, a similarly hued lip stain underneath (as it does just about the same thing if the lippy wears off, though it doesn't help with feather/bleeding as much).

    Have an awesome pre-Halloween weekend!
