REVIEW: MAC VELVET TEDDY


This post has kind of developed into a review of MAC's velvet teddy and pictures from my night out at the weekend- these were the only pictures I had of the lipstick for this post!
 
Velvet teddy is possibly one of the most popular and sought after of the MAC lipstick range at the moment, ever since the nude lipstick trend came onto the beauty scene- and its all down to Kylie Jenner.... I don't know about you, but I love the nude lip trend! It is so effortless to pull off and suits all kinds of lip sizes and skin colours. I think velvet teddy is also perfect for any occasion, and is also perfect to use as an autumnal shade as we leave the summer months behind.
 
Colour- As I said- velvet teddy has such a grown up feel to it, you could wear it on a night out like I did, for a special occasion or even just day to day as it stays well put even when your eating and drinking I've found. Be careful though, as this shade of nude has some orangey/ brown tones to it, and some friends who have paler skin than myself have had issues with how the colour looks against their skin tone- so always try before you buy!
 
Texture- Velvet Teddy is a matte lipstick. With some of these I find it is essential to apply a base coat of lip balm to avoid dry and crumbly lipstick, however with this one I haven't had any problems with it at all.
 
Appearance- As a nude lipstick, by adding a nude lip liner to he edges and cupids bow of your lips to add definition, you can really nail that Kylie Jenner lip.
 
Price- Ok, it goes without saying. The MAC lipsticks are over priced. If like me though, you only buy a few every once in a while, why not invest in a quality lipstick that will last you ages! I tend to find my other day to day MAC lippies have lasted at least 2 years... probably because you don't have to keep reapplying them!
 
 
Asside from velvet teddy, other MAC favourites include crème sheen crème cup, viva glam 5, Milan mode, Cyber, Rebel, Ruby Woo, and pink pigeon. What are your favourites at the moment? Have you tried Velvet Teddy? What are your thoughts? Leave me a comment below!
