I think everyone, not just us beauty girls have had the words MAC Velvet Teddy on their lips. With it supposedly being one of Kylie Jenner's favourite lip products, it has quickly become the shade to wear. Seeing as KJ has that perfect pout (enhanced or not) everyone wants Velvet Teddy in their collection. I must admit I'm not normally one to give into the hype of a product, but I just couldn't resist this beauty of a lipstick and I went hunting for it for quite some time. It felt like MAC forever had it out of stock, so you can only imagine my excitement when it was restocked - I picked it up right away.
Normally I'm not one for nude toned lipsticks. If you've been reading my blog for a while you will know I love my brights. But over the last couple of months I've seen a lot of posts and videos which have provided those tips and tricks on how to create the illusion that you've got a much fuller pout. It looked as though nude lipsticks were the number one choice to give your lips that plumping effect. Not to mention the nineties lip is right on trend, so everything was pointing me in the direction of Velvet Teddy,
After wearing this for what feels like weeks on end, I can honestly say that I'm completely in love with this lipstick and it's fast become a favourite of mine. First of all, used in the right way and paired with the perfect liner it really does a fantastic job at enchaining your lips. The shade is a stunning brown tone nude that has a matte finish. What I really love is the pigmentation of this lipstick, it's fabulous and the matte formula means that this lasts for hours after application.
I just love everything about this lipstick, and loving the nineties lip look just as much - I think that nude lips give your look a more classic feel. When I wear Velvet Teddy I'm not only creating that classic look, but I find this shade of nude really draws attention to your lips in a good way. Even though this is a nude, Velvet Teddy is a great way to wear a statement lip! I love it.
I would love to know what your thoughts are on Velvet Teddy, do you love it as much as me?
Lots of Love
