Velvet Teddy review

IMG_0561

The perfect nude lipstick is a bit like the holy grail, it remains mythical and allusive to all that continue to seek it but once found it’s cherished and adored, becoming an important part of one’s day to day life. Or so I’m told, because sadly for me the noble quest continues.

I’ve already ransacked the high-street on my search and sure I’ve found a few decent offerings but I’m looking for perfection, a lipstick that I never want to be without and that my readers is what I am yet to find. I guess what I want is not just a nude lipstick, I’m looking for a “nearly nude but with a bit of something, something” lipstick, if you know what I mean? So when I recently placed a MAC order and noticed that Velvet Teddy was back in stock, I knew it was time to take the leap.  I’m always cautious with products that come with a huge dollop of hype and this was no different but throwing caution to the wind I was actually rather excited to give it a try.

Velvet Teddy is pink-toned nude with delicate brown and mauve undertones, adding a gorgeous “mine but better” effect to the lips. I tend to find that my lips disappear once nude lippie is applied but this pretty shade has enough colour to pack a punch and while it remains perfect for work and school, it also adds some definition. Once this lipstick was applied, my lips looked a whole lot plumper and it added a polished finish to my otherwise basic make-up look. As with all MAC lippies, this lipstick smells of delicious coco butter and is seriously nourishing, perfect for an every day hue. The best thing about this lipstick is that it’s low maintenance, once applied this lipstick lasted the best part of four hours and it took me next to no time to top it up.

This is really gorgeous shade and while I’m still not completely convinced that it’s the “one”, it’s possibly one of my one’s and I can imagine that I’ll be using it a lot over the coming months.

    I would have a colour thats neutral but at the same time not, if that even makes sense! A nice nude that you can wear but at the same time it pops and gives you a beautiful colour … it will be called something very simple like nudity pop … lol, im not good at these things! xxx

    If I could name a Mac lipstick, it would have to be a light pink color, and let’s face it, I’m a narcissist. I would name it after myself

    Just to be egotistical, I’d name the lipstick after myself!! Porcelina!! (it’s not like I’m going to get anything else named after me, like a star or anything!!) And it would be a pink nude, very similar to the ‘He Said, She Said’ that Benefit discontinued years ago (still sore about that!). Great giveaway, I’d love to try that lippy x

    • Reply Kay Page March 26, 2015 at 9:38 am

      Haha, it’s my game and I say that you can name the lipstick after yourself should you wish 🙂 I love that actually, Porcelina works!! Thank you 🙂 good luck xx
