Beauty || MAC Velvet Teddy

 The amount of stress which surrounded me getting my hands on this much lusted after lipstick is a little bit ridiculous, but I am finally a proud owner of the famous Velvet Teddy Lipstick, £15.50. I love a good nude lipstick, I have been looking for the perfect 'everyday' nude, not too pale but not too dark and Velvet Teddy might be the one.

So the packaging for the lipstick is the classic matte black bullet, with the name written on the bottom. I think that MAC packaging is so iconic, and although it may be super simple I love the way it looks. I also love the name of this lipstick, if a lipstick has a nice name or a name that suits it I'm always so much more tempted to buy it, just me?! MAC says that Velvet Teddy is a deep toned beige matte finish lipstick. I agree with this, the colour is a deep tone beige but I would say it does have a pinky tone to it. It is really pigmented so your natural lip colour does not show through at all. It doesn't drag you lips at all when applying it and although it is a matte finish, its not powdery matte. However because it is matte this does mean that you need to make sure your lips are well prepared and moisturised before you apply or it can draw attention to dry patches on your lips. Overall I am so impressed, I really love the colour, how long wearing it is and the overall finish.

Have you tried Velvet Teddy? What's your favourite MAC lipstick?

  5. I really want that Velvet teddy lipstick but so far have been unsuccessful everywhere I have been. I was going to buy it off Ebay but paying double the price just is not worth it, I dont think anyway.

  6. I've never tried this but it's on my wish list, I'm just a bit worried that it won't suit me because I dunno if you need a darker skin tone and hair than I've got to actually pull it off!

    1. I have super pale skin tone, but dark hair but I think it would suit most people. Its a perfect everyday nude without being too concealer like so doesn't wash you out at all xx
