I am going to dedicate this entire blogpost to talk about Velvet Teddy, a MAC Lipstick craze that took the world by storm with its popularity amongst celebrities such as Kylie Jenner! She definitely caused the lipstick trend to emerge as everyone wanted to copy her infamous 90s Nude lip makeup look!
I’ve been trying to get a handle on this lipstick for over 6 months now & finally a couple of days ago, amongst all sold out items on the MAC Website & even in every MAC Counter and shop you enter!!! That’s how crazy this trend became!
It made me want to try it out & more, especially by reading and seeing how others that managed to secure the lipstick wore their Velvet Teddy & were loving it!
My First impressions Looking at the lipstick, you’re greeted by a lovely pink toned Nude colour mixed with a little hint of beige / brown. So you’re not getting a peachy kind of Nude lipstick and it’s more flesh toned!
Here is the swatch on my lips and on my hand!
Velvet Teddy has a Matte Finish too! I prefer my matte finished lipsticks from MAC. Comparing with other lipsticks I’ve tried such as Mehr, Pink Plaid & Ruby Woo I’ve found that the Matte effect of this particular one isn’t as strong! You kind of feel like the colour is not as Matte as you would expect. I think pairing it with a nude lip liner will definitely matte up the lipstick more! * Just a little suggestion* However, I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all that it isn’t too matte! Some types of Lipsticks with a Matte finish usually dry out your lips but this one has the long lasting effect of a Matte lipstick without looking like it’s crusting around your lips :P!
I should add that this colour definitely works better for more tan coloured skin tones. I think with my pale skin the colour drained me out a little bit and that’s a shame because I really wanted to love this lipstick a lot! I would happily rock this lipstick in the summer with my tan but I don’t think it’s a perfect everyday sort of lipstick for my skin tone (at the moment) 😛
Although I fell into the hype of trying out this trend, I would definitely consider trying this lipstick on your lips in store before purchasing! If you manage to find a sample on the counter! Which is never the case because it’s usually sold out on most counters hehe!
But on that note, if you still have your heart set on picking one up! You can pick up one through their UK Website, but I would hurry as you never know when they’ll become out of stock again 🙂
