The perfect Nude for me. I really struggle with finding nude lip colours that suit me as I find that they can be more high maintenance than they should be. I love shy girl but I have to be really careful when wearing it as it looks horrid if I have drylips or if I have not exfoliated them, the lipstick just highlights all the imprefections. Then there are some that are so milky on my pigmented lips that it looks like I am wearing concealer on my lips, urgh! Then sometimes you find a nude that kinda suits but you have to blot most of it off to get it to look somewhat natural. Not so with Modesty, its the type of lipstick which you can just put on a go no lipliner needed. For me the colour is so similar to my lipcolour, it is the one lipstick that us girls look for the "my lips but better" HG. If you have a olive skintone and around the NC42ish, with pigmented lips this is the one for you. Don't bother with Shy Girl, Plink, or Creme Cup try this first you won't be disappointed.

I'm brand new to MSFs so this is my first one I have ever bought. I got this a couple of weeks ago and I'm absolutely obsessed with it. The one I recieved was via post, as I bought it online from Mac. Initially mine did not have alot a veining going through it, however I find as I am using the product more and more colours are becoming apparent. There are blue and peach threads that were not there when it was new. So from an asthetic point of view its becoming more beautiful to look at it as I use it up. I know all MSF are unique but there must be some others out there that are doing this as well? The product on my face itself is absolutely beautiful, its so subtle, and makes my skin glow. With some of my other highlighters I have to use a really light hand but with this I know I can just plonk it on my face and I won't look like a glitterbomb. Its also beautiful as an eyeshadow too. I love this MSF so much I bought a second one from a Mac store and asked the MUA if I could pick one with lots of veining in it. The second one I have is alot more pretty to look at, and as weird as it sounds I just like pulling it out and looking at it, its so beautiful in the pan. I know this product in the 2011 and 2012 collection has got negative reviews as it is not comparable to the 2006 lightscapade but personally I think if you, like me are new to the MSFs thing then you will love this regardless. For me it was the thing missing from my makeup collection.
