MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick


I recently got my hands on the famous MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick which came to fame after Kylie Jenner supposedly said she uses it. Wether that's true or not, I have no idea but I'm loving the nineties nude trend her plump pout has brought back to popularity. I'm not into completely nude shades that look like concealer (MAC Myth for example) as they wash out my skin tone so Velvet Teddy is perfect for me as it has brown tones meaning it isn't so flat looking on the lips.

I was a little wary of getting it at first as its a matte shade and I don't tend to get along well with matte lipsticks as they dry my lips out and generally feel uncomfortable to wear. However, I haven't had any problems with this shade at all - in fact, it feels quite creamy which is perfect!


As I said before, Velvet Teddy is a nude lipstick but it isn't completely nude in the respect it will wipe out any colour on your lips. As you can see from my swatch, its a nude shade with brown / peach tones which is what gives it that nineties vibe. I've been wearing it with Spice lip liner and the pair make a lovely combo. It's probably not a shade I'd wear in the evening as I prefer to go for a bold lip when I'm going on a night out but for day to day wear, it's really love and natural looking. With it being a matte formula, it also lasts really well so doesn't require many touch-ups throughout the day.


If you're like me and aren't really into 'concealer' nude lips, I'd highly recommend you give Velvet Teddy a try. It's a shade that will suit most skin tones and a good one to have in your collection! It's a pretty effortless shade but when I put it on, it instantly makes my makeup look more polished. It costs £15.00 and you can get it online here or from your local MAC counter!

Have your tried Velvet Teddy yet? Is it a shade you'd like to try?

  1. I'm so desperate to get my hands on this, every time I go into store it's never in stock! Such a wearable nude, I can only wear brown toned ones as they don't wash me out x

  6. I think this is the most common Mac lipstick and I still haven't got it! I'd get it, sooner or later, but for some reason I always skip it and buy another shade. It's gorgeous though! xo

  9. I love velvet teddy, as you say it's so wearable and I find the shade really flattering. I'm not into the other nudes either at all, but this is my favourite daytime lipstick!

  11. I haven't tried the lipstick yet, but I've been so tempted! There are so many from MAC that I want to try out, but for some reason I always end up backing up. I might give in sooner or sooner though.

    I don't think I'm going to be able to keep resisting and the colour is so pretty. For a pale person like me, I think it would be on point.
