After putting out feelers via a Twitter poll as what MAC lipstick I should purchase next (enabling at its best), MAC Velvet Teddy came out top, dominating 48% of the vote. So, it wasn't long until I popped the ever so popular shade into my basket and on its arrival straight onto my lips.
Velvet Teddy has an acclaimed reputation as the lip product behind Kylie Jenner's infamous pout and consequently was a sell out. Bur fast forward a few months and we all now know that isn't necessarily the truth. But nevertheless, this matte shade from MAC is worthy of its cult status - could it possibly be the best nineties nude? Velvet Teddy is described as "deep-tone beige" with a matte finish. But applied directly onto my lips it's more of a muted medium-dark beige with a pink undertone. It can appear very dark on my skin tone. Admittedly something I'm not used to and something my Mum voiced she wasn't a fan of. However, the shade is wearing on me, applied lightly onto the lips, or paired with a swipe of MAC's Brave lipstick its pretty much perfection. It's creamy in texture, long lasting and neither drying nor hydrating. I'm yet to pair the shade with my MAC Soar lip liner, but as soon as I do, I'll be sure to give you the deets.
