MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick has been the one lipstick that I have been wanting to purchase for absolutely ages but I just never got round to doing so. However each time I saw a photo of someone wearing this lipstick, I simply fell in love with the shade over and over again and I felt like it was a lipstick that I needed in my life. 

I had doubts thinking that this colour wouldn't suit my fair skin tone but I was completely wrong. This is the perfect everyday shade and it can be paired with multiple different eye looks, whether you're going for a natural or a dramatic look. The finish of this lipstick is a matte which is a bit different for me seeing as I hardly ever go for the matte lipsticks due to having quite dry lips naturally which sucks! To my surprise, the formula is not as drying as I thought it would be - it has a very creamy texture therefore glides onto the lips perfectly and it does manage to stay put throughout most of the day. I do find myself applying a clear lip balm over the top of this lipstick after a few hours just to let some moisture back into my lips because I find that it does start to dry out my lips after leaving it on for a while but then again I do expect that with a matte finish. 

I have been wearing this colour on its own recently however I have seen that a lot of people like pairing this with MAC's Soar lip liner which I have yet to try!
