Lips Like Velvet

My MAC lipstick obsession is currently at its prime. I purchased this beauty together with my previous entry, MAC Mehr. I I was able to swatch Mehr at a MAC counter prior to purchasing it so I already knew I wanted that in the first place. Enter Velvet Teddy, a slightly less popular shade in the MAC lipstick line here in the Philippines (due to its unavailability) — a shade I was unaware of as well till I started searching for MAC’s best nude shades. Their more popular ones are Myth, Hue, Blankety, Creme d’ Nude, Honeylove. Although they look great on most people, they sadly don’t work with my skintone and natural lip color as they totally make me look like one of those actors in Walking Dead. mac velvet teddy lipstick swatch


MAC Velvet Teddy is described as a deep tone beige despite looking much darker and browner in tube. I’ve seen images of different bloggers and users of this shade online and observed that for those with more pigmented lips, they come out browner. For those with less pigmented lips, like me (light pink), they register more as a pinky beige, which I prefer my perfect nude shade to look like. It’s a very everyday lipstick that I definitely see myself abusing interchangeably with MAC Mehr. Being of matte formulation, I expected it to be drying as other mattes usually are. Surprisingly, they sat well on my lips not budging for at least four hours and without any sign of dryness (it could also be that I moisturized my lips well with lip balm before applying as I usually do). mac velvet teddy lipstick swatch review


I’m so happy that it was MAC Velvet Teddy that welcomed me to the Land of the Nudes. I’ve always been hesitant to wear nude lips because of the ill-looking face that I get when I do try. The most nude shade I have is MAC Brave, which is not nude at all but I call it that anyway. I love that I can wear this when I want either a dramatic eye look or a strong blush look. I have yet to try it just by itself with a bare face for when I’m on the go. Thanks (or no thanks says my wallet) to Velvet Teddy, I think I’m on my path to a nude obsession.

    I’ve also been searching for the perfect nude in a more affordable counterpart. Pink-beige is what I’m always searching for but all I get are beige and pink-browns; The former makes me look dead while the latter, I feel like is more for old ladies thus makes me feel old. My mom loves it though, lol (hence for old ladies). Anyway, I love this shade!

    This is one of those lippies that has been on my w/l for forever! It looks so nice on you. My favorite MAC nude is High tea. I also love the Revlip Lip Butter in Creme Brulee.

    You look great in everything you wear! Wondering if you could recommend a red lip colour to me, really want to try it out but I’m actually pretty new to lip colour and don’t know which shades/brands are best!

    Stunning! It’s definitely subtly on you and just the right amount of pink without being obvious! Love it!

    Velvet Teddy looks perfect on you! What a lovely nude. I’m not really into nude shades anymore, but I remember my favorite one being a Maybelline one. 🙂

    OK…This shade is definitely on my list of things to get. I’m just getting back into the world of beauty (it kind of took a back seat since I became a mom, and I’m saying it’s time to get back to it). Found your blog and love this review. I’m a new GFC follower. =0)
