Public service announcement, I’ve found a MAC Velvet Teddy Dupe! I’m always on the look out for nude lip pencils, and when I saw this one from MUA, I decided to give it a try and see how it compared to Velvet Teddy.
Made most famous by Kylie Jenner, Velvet Teddy has become an iconic shade from MAC. It’s my most reached for lipstick when I want a pinky nude with a matte finish.
As soon as I tried the MUA Lipliner in TLC, I realised, it’s MAC’s velvet teddy in drugstore lipliner form. Ok, the formulation is different to Velvet Teddy, but as far as dupes go it’s pretty good. Especially considering it’s £1.50!
The MUA lipliner is a little less intense in colour, more of a true nude without the subtle pink undertones that Velvet Teddy but still similar. I think if you were unsure of this sort of shade and wanted to give it a go then this is the perfect chance. The MUA lipliners are alright they are fairly creamy and pigmented with a heavy hand, and they last a good few hours.
Velvet Teddy is perfect. I have to say I thought it would wash me out and make me look scary but I am really loving it pared with a smoky eye on a night out or in the day time lightly dabbed on the lips with bare eyes for a minimal look. If you can manage to get your hands on this I would, you won’t regret it.
