Its Wednesday so that means lips, I have to admit I fell into the Kylie Jenner perfect dark nude full lips hype. I have heard a whole bunch of rumors of what she uses to get her color. one being that she uses MAC Velvet Teddy over a MAC lip liner. I have read plenty of reviews & seen plenty of swatches for this lipstick one thing I noticed is that the shade appears different on all skin tones.
I am a huge fan of color - the louder & brighter, the better. With that being said this color is a little out of my normal shade range, I'm not much of a nude or beige girl. Velvet Teddy is my go to lipstick for days that I don't want to look over done. Jeans & a white t-shirt day I swipe this baby on my lips add a tad of lip gloss or Vaseline for shine.
Velvet Teddy is one of MAC's permeate matte shades,MAC describes this lipstick as deep-tone beige. On my skin I see a lot more of a peach beige but I like that about this color it separates it's myself from any other nudes own. The color is rich with a hint of brown/peach color which kind of gives it a vintage look. In my opinion this is one of MAC's creamier matte shades. I find that some of their mattes really dry my lips out & I have to do a really good exfoliation after wearing it. Velvet Teddy is highly pigmented & gives a pretty opaque color.
- Perfect matte lipstick that is super pigmented
- Beautiful soft, warm peachy nude
- Adds color to lips without drying them
Cons of MAC Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick:
- Since I have to wear a lipgloss or Vaseline over it, lipstick lasts 4 to 5 hours
- Can be drying towards the end when fading starts
