MAC Velvet Teddy / Review

After months and months of me trying to get my mitts on one of MAC’s best selling lippies it finally landed in my basket and oh boy am I excited! Meet MAC Velvet Teddy (here)! A.k.a one of the prettiest nudes I’ve ever laid my eyes on! Now normally I am not the biggest nude lipstick wearer – the struggles of being pale as a ghost, you know? Velvet Teddy, however, converted me. Here is why:

Velvet Teddy is one of those ‘my lips but better’ kinda shades and it is a beautiful brownish nude with ever so slightly reddish undertone. It definitely leans towards the warmer spectrum of things and I love its ability to draw the attention to the lips. This beauty has that 90s vibe written all over and it just adds a little something-something to any look I’m sporting. Velvet Teddy looks beautiful on its own but if you want to pair it with a lip liner I’d say go for MAC Soar (here / review) – the two compliment each other beautifully and the combo makes your lips look somewhat plumped and the look more sopthisticated. Amazing!

The formula of Velvet Teddy is on point as well. It has matte finish, even though at first it has slight sheen to it but that’s gone after about an hour. The lippy is not drying or heavy on the lips and it glides on like a dream. Its creamy texture applies evenly without streaks or settling into fine lines. Pigmentation wise, Velvet Teddy ticks all the boxes and you need just one layer to get full-blown color. And the best part? This beauty stays on for about four hours, which to me is a lot. What can I say – I’m in love and I’d say Velvet Teddy is a brilliant option for those who are lusting after the perfect everyday nude with matte finish.

Have you tried MAC Velvet Teddy before? Do you love it as much as I do?

Lots of love,
Andrea

  5. Velvet Teddy is such a dark shade on me, like a very dark purple toned nude but I do really love it! It's not an 'every day nude' for me due to how pale skinned I am but it is such a gorgeous lipstick :)

  11. It looks so good on the photos! I remember that the time when I tried it, it looked kind of greyish on my lips so I didn't like it at all :c
