My first MAC lipstick!

Tuesday, 18 August 2015



So I finally caved into the craze of MAC lipsticks! Since buying this one a few weeks ago, I have recently purchased another because I liked my first so much! As I said this is my first MAC lipstick, so I decided to chose a shade which I knew was popular and I had read lots of positive reviews about, the shade being 'Velvet Teddy'. In my collection, I didn't own a nude shade so I felt like there was room for one - this is me trying to justify buying it! As everyone had said, this is an amazing lipstick and it certainly gives the whole Kylie Jenner nude lip look! 

This is a matte formulation (another type of lipstick I hadn't owned before) and although, some say these types of formulations dry out your lips, I didn't find it with this. Another thing I was impressed with was the staying power, it lasted most of the day even after eating/drinking! I have also had many compliments whilst wearing it which is a really nice feeling. This, for me, will definitely be an everyday lipstick throughout the year. 

I know some people have had some trouble finding this particular shade. When I purchased it in London St Pancras, there were many of the same. So if you are looking for it, I recommend popping into that shop and hopefully they will still have some. 

What are your favourite MAC lipsticks? Have you tried out this one before?

  5. I also bought Velvet Teddy as my first MAC lipstick! Nude shades is my obsession at the moment, so it's surely a perfect pick. Can't wait to grow my collection :) x
