The perfect nude: Mac's Velvet Teddy

MAC lipsticks Velvet Teddy

I have been eyeing this lipstick for a while now and I'm so glad that I finally bought it. No regrets! because I adore this lipstick! First of all, I love the name of this lipstick, Velvet Teddy. The name is so endearing, is it not? Long story short, I was not really a fan of nude lipsticks in the past because most of them washed me out. I saw some girls wearing this lipstick on Instagram and I thought that it was such a pretty nude color that will probably work on my skin tone too.
   Here's a swatch that actually shows an accurate colour of this lipstick. As you can see, Velvet Teddy appears to be a pinked beige nude on my skin. For a reference, I am between NC30-35 in MAC which is a light medium skin tone. It has a matte formula, therefore it would be better to put on some sort of lips moisturizer first in order to avoid dry lips. I am so impressed by the colour payoff  and longevity of this lipstick.

Overall, I really love this lipstick. If you are looking for a nude lipstick that would not make you look like you're sick, this is probably one of your best bets. The only thing that I can probably complain about it is the price. MAC products are more expensive here in Canada. I got this lipstick for almost 22$ including tax while they are selling it for 16$ in the US. Anyway, the price won't stop me from buying MAC products because I think that many of their products are really great. I'm already planning to add another nude in my collection! :D Do you have any suggestions?
