I know that everyone and their mother has jumped on the brown lipstick train, and I am very late. BUT I'M HERE. Yes, Kylie Jenner started a lipstick revolution, and I love it. I heard about Velvet Teddy for months and months, will people calling it the 'perfect brown' lipstick, but I just couldn't do it. What if I looked like a 90's throwback? Could I be the only person to not suit Velvet Teddy? I wasn't about to spend £15 on a lipstick I wasn't sure if I'd like, so I stayed away. However a friend let me try hers a few months back, and straight away I knew I needed it. I fell in love.
For me, Velvet Teddy is almost a perfect 'my lips but better' shade. I didn't realise my lips were so dark, but when I wear Velvet Teddy it's really similar to my natural colour. It's a matte lipstick, so it is drying, but I constantly wear lip balm in this weather anyway so it isn't too drying for me. Because it's matte, the staying power is incredible! I wore for this for 5 hours without having to reapply - I was very impressed.
If you're thinking about buying Velvet Teddy, go for it. It's a gorgeous lipstick that seems to suit everyone. It's become my favourite nude and I can't imagine that changing any time soon!
