I’m still so very much in love with matte lipsticks and one that I have been obsessed with for months now is MAC’s Velvet Teddy.
I had the most difficult time finding a nude lipstick that would be suitable for my skin tone. A lot of them would wash me out, look way too peachy-pink on me or simply looked “too nude” (read: they made me look like a zombie). Enter Velvet Teddy by MAC. Velvet Teddy is a beautiful, neutral, brown toned nude with a bit of a 90’s feel. I think that this shade is also very much Kylie Jenner-like.
The finish is entirely matte and with its amazing formula it lasts a very long time. Once again, because of my lighting, the finish looks a bit more sheen than it actually is. Rest assured that it doesn’t get any “matte-er” than Velvet Teddy. Despite of such a flat finish, it isn’t drying at all, which is another big plus.
I’ve been using Velvet Teddy for a while now and it has quickly become a favorite of mine. I like using it with NYX lipliner in “Natural” or with “Whirl” lipliner by MAC. Even though I’ve been using Velvet Teddy all summer, I think that it’s an amazing color for the summer-autumn transition, and can be rocked even during cold winter months.
What do you guys think of this shade? I think that if I could only buy one MAC lipstick for the rest of my life, Velvet Teddy would be it (and how cuddly and lovely is the name “Velvet Teddy”? <3)
