I’m sure most of you will know of the “Mac Velvet Teddy” lipstick by now, made popular by “Kylie Jenner” it has been so popular that you might experience slight difficulty trying to get your hands on this shade. In fact, the only place I managed to get this gorgeous shade was from the main Mac website!
Details: Mac Velvet Teddy
This is my first ever lipstick by Mac and I spent ages on Google trying to find my perfect shades to compliment my pale complexion and bright red hair, and I must admit this shade was bought on a whim. I noticed so many bloggers raving about this lipstick and knew it would be worth a try, and my god I was right! I can’t live without this lipstick now, and from some little research, I knew redheads suite more beige tones when it comes to a nice classic nude lip.
I was so sceptical about this and thought Velvet Teddy would look very dark and unnatural against my hair/complexion, but I was completely wrong and this shade would definitely work for everyone, no matter what your hair colour or skin tone this will definitely look stunning!! It really warms up my complexion with the deep-tone beige and makes my lips look somewhat fuller…. Not only this but it really brings out the colour in my eyes, and just looks incredible full stop! I think everyone needs to add this to their lipstick collection(s), and because it’s a matte formula it will last hours! This has lasted well over five hours on my lips and it’s not drying, just make sure to keep your lips hydrated before and after application of a good moisturising lip balm. I am currently using the Epic Blend lip balms and these keep my lips hydrated for hours 🙂
This makes the perfect all year round nude shade and especially looks good for winter to warm your complexion up and leave you feeling ready to face the day. The peach undertones are very subtle, but you can notice how they blend beautifully with the beige to give more warmth to the lipstick once applied and it adapts more to your natural lip tones, to keep it looking that more natural. This shade is very elegant and sophisticated but it also has a nice playful side, and completely transforms into a happier confident you!
