MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy Review

Just last month, I went to Duty Free Philippines and I'm not gonna lie that it was pretty intimidating going through their beauty section but I managed to get this lipstick which I have been hunting for awhile but have always been sold out so when I went to Duty free, I immediately asked for the Velvet Teddy shade and they were available! *May or may not have done a victory dance bit here*

$19.50 ( PHP 913.80)

What do I think about it?

Firstly, I wanted to have this shade (other than the fact that I love nude lipsticks) is because the shade is pretty brownish with a slight hint of mauve which you may know if you've peeked in my vanity is two of my staple shades. After trying it for myself, I noticed how smoothly it applies on my lips even with my lip's current state (chapped) and it wasn't drying at all and what I would say that it saved my lips from looking horrible. Blends easily and has a decent amount of staying power if you don't eat or drink while using this but if you do, expect it to fade but not to worry, reapplying is easy and as smooth as when you're first applying it to your lips. The downside that I think would draw me back from this product is the fact that it wasn't the shade that I was expecting at all and it did look too pink on me and I expected more of a (like what I described above) a brownish shade. It also really sinks into the lines of the lips which is pretty obvious to the eye and it also does transfer but would still leave some sort of a stain on the lips which isn't bad at all since it looks like it just faded. 

Is it worth the money?

For the quality of the product, I do think that it's worth it but I don't actually see myself repurchasing this because of how it looks on me although I would purchase other shades and would definitely test it out before buying. I would recommend this to girls who have a lighter skin tone because it'll look darker or browner on you which gives that old school brown nude effect (if you know, you're into that kind of stuff).

  3. Even though this is more of a neutral tone on you, I love it!! I think it's a beautiful little pop of pretty on you.

  4. That colour looks stunning on you, though! Perhaps you want to try layering a coloured gloss over to get it to a colour closer to one that you like :-)

  5. This looks like a great neutral color and I think it looks great on you. But I know how it can be disappointing if it wasn't the color you were expecting.

  6. It does not look like how I thought it would either but it still looks really lovely on you! This is a great nude shade that I always wanted to try out!

    1. Ikr but thanks! The shade is still quite nice.

  7. I actually thought it's a stunning shade on you! I have my eyes on this shade too but I must first swatch it because most nude shades make me look ill.

  9. I think it looks quite decent on you and I do agree on your thought that it could look lovely on more fair skinned girls :)

  10. I've been seeing so many Youtubers wear this lip color but I was afraid it would not "pop" enough or compliment my skin tone. I think I will pass on purchasing this. Glad I stumbled upon this post!
