Because Velvet Teddy is a matte lipstick, I knew I'd love the finish and the staying power and thankfully I was right.
I'm not going to pretend I look remotely like Kylie Jenner (12 year age gap aside) but I find it to be a very wearable lipstick that I can almost apply without a mirror. Almost.
The matte formula of Velvet Teddy does feel a little dry but I generally prefer the matte look so it's a price I'm willing to pay. A touch of By Terry Baume de Rose is the perfect primer for use with any of my matte lipsticks and as with pretty much any lipstick, I find that this one looks better and stays put for longer after using the apply, blot, reapply technique. It just goes on smoothly and more evenly when you get blotting!
The dusty rose/nude shade is subtle enough for an understated look and it just makes me feel a little prettier and put together when I've got it on. And that's what it's all about, right?
MAC Velvet Teddy is £15.50 at MAC stores, concessions and online.
