Mac Velvet Teddy Lipstick Review
I have quite a growing collection of lipsticks now, but because I am always attracted to bright colours and shiny things most of them are vampy reds which are not day appropriate at all! I really wanted a lipstick for more daily wear, so after trying on a variety on my hand (you really can't tell anything from putting a lipstick on your hand in my opinion! I always hold it up to my face but it still doesn't reallygive me much of an idea how it will look on.) I gave in and asked the advice of the very lovely sales assistant in the Manchester Selfridges concession.
She pulled a few that she thought would suit me, and Velvet Teddy immediately won me over. The colour is subtle, but strong enough that is still looks like I am wearing some lipstick (no point in being too subtle about these things otherwise I might as well not bother is my general approach to makeup!) and have I raved about how good Mac lipsticks smell already?! They smell like chocolate, which is quite delicious!
The colour is relatively long lasting, and unlike my bright red collection doesn't look all gross and bitty when it's wearing off and I've forgotten to re-apply (Or is that just me who has that problem?!) In conclusion this colour is definitely a winner for me, my only fault with Mac lipsticks is I find them quite drying - if they put some sort of moisturiser in the formula they would be perfect!
