The £1.50 MAC Velvet Teddy Dupe

Mac lipstick next to lipliner

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.

As soon as I tried this out I realised, this is 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 than brown compared to 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.
