The Mac Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick, may just be 'the' lipstick of the moment. With the dark nude Kylie Jenner lips trend currently in full swing I dived straight in and made sure I picked up this shade on my recent trip to Mac.
The funny thing about Velvet Teddy is how different it appears depending on your skin tone On my pale skin it appeared as more of a warm brown nude, but on others it can appear more of a peachy nude shade.
The downside with matte lipstick's is that they can sometimes dry out your lips, be difficult to apply and fade unevenly if you haven't freshly exfoliated your lips. However Mac seem to have the matte formula nailed. I found that by pairing this shade with Mac Whirl lip liner it matched perfectly and gave me a perfect outline and base.
The colour pay off on Velvet Teddy is amazing, and I'd expect no less from Mac. Just one swipe of the product gives an even smooth finish and the lasting power of this product is great. I wore this shade to the Bloggers Love Pre Party and throughout the night (4 hours) even with drinks, the colour did not budge!
Velvet Teddy is possibly my new favourite mac lipstick and I've a few looks featuring it i'll be sharing with you soon!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this shade! Let me know in the comments.
