Dominique Cosmetics Shy Girl is a slightly warm-toned, dark mauve with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.27 oz.
Dominique Cosmetics Shy Girl Beautiful Mess Liquid Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a muted, darker mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was the real outlier in the range, as it was opaque in coverage in a single layer (when the formula was supposed to be buildable!) and had a flat, matte finish (the others are shimmery).
The consistency was less watery and thin, but it wasn't too thick so it didn't take long to dry down. The product applied evenly with the included applicator as well as with fingertips and with synthetic brushes. You'll want to work one eye at a time and diffuse after giving it a few seconds to "soft set" to avoid potentially lifting the product off the skin by attempting to blend it after it sets. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

It’s time to color outside the lines. Beautiful Mess, our liquid eye paint, is a blendable, buildable, fool-proof way to express yourself in just a swipe. Choose a matte, shimmering, or multi chrome finish—whichever suits your mood. Mix, match, and break some rules with any of our 6 shades. Apply with the applicator or your finger to create a look as soft or as fearless as you feel. The result? Weightless. Perfectly imperfect. And unlike anything you’ve tried before.
