Monday Minute// MAC Velvet Teddy

Hello Friends!

Last week I arrived back on a plane from a sunny Florida vacation back to chilly Maine. It was such a lovely little break  even though I did suffer with a bad cold the first half of it ( bummer)! Now we are back to business baby! 

During my stay in Florida my mom and I visited this huge mall ( and I mean massive). I got to browse through Anthropolgie and a big H&M they had so many stores including a stand alone MAC store. I didnt buy anything there at that mall that day except for one thing. This lipstick.

Velvet Teddy  .  

In my entire lipstick collection ( not a big collection, but a growing one). I seem to only own : Reds & Dark Red/Berry colors, nothing else. Never been one for pinks and I never was one for nudes, until now that is. Its not because I was swept up in this "Kylie Jenner Lip" trend that is sweeping the nation, I just simply craved a nude lipstick because I didn't own any. When I told the lady at the MAC store this she seemed kind of surprised. Wearing bold lips all day everyday is difficult to upkeep and it does not always suit the look I am going for. 

So to make a long story short, I had to decide between "Twig" and "Velvet Teddy" ( which has been immensely popular due to Miss Jenner, I got the last tube they had in stock!) I liked both shades on me but decided that I had my heart set on  Velvet Teddy.

MAC lipsticks are very lovely, ( plus I will never get over how good they smell), their matte formula can be a bit drying but I find this shade to be pretty smooth on the lips. I love this color so much ( I never thought I would be saying this about a nude, my how I have changed my ways)! Its so easy to just slap on and wear. Lets just say I have fallen hard for this lipstick and if you're looking for a great "brownish, pinky" nude this lipstick is a great option. 

What are your favorite nude lipsticks? Tell me in the comments below! 

I hope you all are having a great week! 
See you soon!
