MAC Velvet Teddy
I finally got my hands on the MAC lipstick that I have wanted for ages, Velvet Teddy, also known as the Kylie Jenner lip shade. I picked it up on the way to Kefalonia at World Duty Free which meant that I managed to save a few pounds. Although in my head I think of duty free as huge discounted prices, and then every time I am reminded that I only ever save a few pounds!
Velvet Teddy is a matte lipstick, which is something I don’t usually go for as I find them quite drying on my lips. But this one still manages to feel moisturising and I think that fact that it is matte really increases its lasting power. I wore this during the holiday out to dinner with my family, and after a whole three course meal it still looked pretty perfect, and it barely came off on my glass. The actually shade is very natural but with a slight pinky brown tint.
I have found that I am starting to build a bit of a collection of MAC lipsticks which is very exciting. The other shades that I have are Patisserie, which was the first one that I got and I wear all the time. It’s my perfect nude shade and I will be so sad when this runs out. Actually I will probably just go and replace it straight away, I need this in my life! The other shade is also pretty new to my collection, Giddy. Again it is a very natural lustre shade but more pinky.
Here is my go to everyday makeup look featuring MAC Velvet Teddy. I just do a simple slightly shimmery brown smokey eye which I think perfectly complements the brown tint in the lipstick.
Hope you guys are having a lovely Wednesday. I got back home from Kefalonia yesterday afternoon and it is actually really lovely to be back. I love travelling and going on holiday, but there is something about living out of a suitcase that I am not so keen on. I like having ALL my stuff, and my home comforts. Plus it is finally cold enough here for me to drink lots of green tea again! It’s pretty sad, but I was actually really missing it! xx
