MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick (3) MAC Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick: Swatches & Review

I don’t need to give an introduction about MAC lipsticks, they are definitely one of the most sought after little black tubes in a girls vanity. One such tube in my vanity is my favourite matte lipstick called Mac Velvet Teddy.

My Experience With MAC Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick:

Package: The lipstick has its outer look as a bullet with an oval shaped cap like the typical MAC ones.

Nature: The color is a light, sort of  wheatish nude with a hint  of peach . It is a perfect matte shade, gives a flat nude colour to your lips with just one swipe.

Skintone Best Suited for: This one is for fair to fair-medium skintones. It will wash out tones darker than NC 40 ! (Editors Note: This washes me out guys, so those of you looking for a skintone comparison chose accordingly)

This lipstick is super pigmented and one swipe is more than enough to last hours together !!! The creamy matte is a perfect non drying lipstick regardless of whether you have a lip balm as a base or not. The Mac mattes are soft mattes as compared to other matte one’s. I feel my lips can still bear this till the end of the day, unlike other matte lipsticks

The only thing that annoys me is that after i remove this, my lips start getting dry which is kind of strange.

Pros of MAC Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick:

  • A perfect matte lipstick that is super pigmented
  • A beautiful soft, warm peachy nude
  • Adds colour to lips without drying.
  • Even though it costs about a thousand you will not find an alternate for this.

Cons of MAC Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick:

  • My lips dried up at the last stage of the fading.

Rating: A-

Price: Rs. 990

Recommendation: Are you hunting for a nice nude lipstick? Mac Velvet Teddy should definitely be in the consideration list. It will wash out darker skintones, but light to medium skin tones can definitely give it a whirl.

Velvet teddy is a very popular MLBB shade for around the NC35 skintones I guess… I am an NC42 and it totally washes me out.

Nice lip swatch :)
