MAC Be Silly Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “hot fuchsia pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium fuchsia-magenta with strong, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that was easy to apply and to wear.

It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, with a lightly creamy, emollient texture that applied without trouble. If I press my lips together, I can see “lines” appear to a small degree.

Hi Christine! I love all your reviews:) I’m sorry to ask, but do you think I could justify buying Silly if I already own Pink Nouveau, Candy yum yum and Chatterbox?

I really like Be Silly, it’s my kind of color, and I’m glad that the finish is not totally matte. It looks like the color as well as the finish is different from Bobbi Brown Raspberry Pink, and I think the color is different from Hourglass Fever as well. It’s going on my wish list! The other two colors are pretty, but too light for me.

Oh dear, I didn’t even notice that! And yikes, they are 2 totally different colors. Maybe they should’ve thrown in another one and call it Silly Me πŸ˜‰

I love Be Silly, but I have a million dupes. I got Silly the last time it was released. Oddly enough, I don’t have any dupes for St. Germain. I like how it has the barest hint of lavender in the pink.

Missed out on Silly last time it was out, and because it’s warmer than Pink Nouveau, I have got to see if I can work it. As for Be Silly, I really like it, but prefer the purple-ness of Have Your Cake (did I get that name right, I wonder?)
Only catch is, cool pinks tend to make me look a bit green or jaundiced….not sure whether Silly has enough “warmth”?

Wasn’t Silly out recently in another MAC collection? The MAC Is Beauty I think? I think I have that one already? Gonna have to dig to confirm. It doesn’t get much play obviously. I’m not into brights like this. Be Silly may go on my list. I just feel like a lot of these, I have seen before.

I’m sure it’s just because it’s easier to say that to someone else – I am sure in reality that I look pretty bad in half of what I wear!

I think I might pass on Be Silly because I feel like it looks a lot like Pink Pigeon….but since its not technically listed as a dupe idk!! ;___;

First I know Im late posting but I still have silly from the last time they released it and everytime I put in hard work of getting there le shades by site stalking they ended releasing it perm! Either just do that in the 1st place so I don’t have to do all that or stop releasing them cuz I’m seriously about just stop buying from them at all. If I catch bianca b come out perm Im’ done…lol also omg I wish silly look that great on me! It’s such a pretty color but I’m just to cool toned for it to look as good as it does on u!
