MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

Velvet Teddy was my first MAC lipstick. I bought it years ago in Dublin airport on my way to a wedding in the UK. I asked the sales assistant for a Bridget Bardot nude.

I was running to catch my flight and I didn’t have time to have a closer look at it. I just paid for it and ran. I was a little disappointed when I got on the plane and had look.I would describe this shade as my lip colour but worse. That is not good. It’s a matte shade which means it doesn’t last very long on my lips. It looks dry, flaky and pretty unattractive to be honest. I love nude lipstick but this shade always makes me look dead. Anyway the reason for this post is that I have found a way to use this lipstick, even if it is only a dot of it…

To achieve this effect I applied a clear gloss to the lips and then applied Velvet Teddy over the top. What do you think?

I wouldn’t recommend this lipstick, unless you really love matte shades, but I had to come up with a way to make it work. My work is done.

What are your thoughts on matte lipsticks? What is your favourite finish?
