If you follow me on Snapchat you will have seen that I wear this colour almost every single day. Literally, five days out of seven this is the colour that I will be showcasing on my lips.
It is the first ever lipstick that I have gotten on the Back 2 M.A.C special. If you don’t know what that is, its when you take back six empty or used plastic M.A.C packages and in exchange they let you choose a M.A.C lipstick. It has to be from the constant range though, so not limited edition lipsticks will be allowed. But HOW awesome is that?!
So I originally went in to buy Velvet Teddy. Now, I had been trying to buy it for a friend since March and it was always sold out. Like, always. I think they’ve actually said its the most sold M.A.C lipstick ever – thanks to Kylie Jenner. Fast forward five months to August and my boss asked me to stop in at M.A.C and pick up Velvet Teddy for her. I told her to not expect miracles and then MIRACLE UPON MIRACLE the sales assistant told me they received stock the same day I went to buy it for her. Fast forward three days later and I happily skipped into M.A.C to swap my six empties and accept my free Velvet Teddy when, lo and behold, they tell me that they sold the last one minutes before. Just great.
I asked the sales lady to just give me the closest shade to Velvet Teddy and this is what she bestowed upon me. Kinda Sexy is a very very similar shade with a slightly, more salmon pink undertone. It is the absolute perfect shade of ‘my lips but better’. I think I have used that phrase in so many other blog posts and Lip Looks but this is definitely my absolute favourite pinky nude shade of all time.
The M.A.C website describes it as a neutral pinky rose shade but in my opinion its definitely more nude than pink but there is definitely a heavy rose undertone. It is also a matte effect and wowwee, its the best matte lipstick ever. It is not drying in the slightest and it lasts for ages.
You can wear this to work or out on the town – it really is just such a versatile colour overall and currently my favourite lipstick to wear.
