Velvet teddy is my perfect nude! I always have it in my collection :D

Most Helpful Criticism

Not the best

Steph

This lipstick is constantly raved about and after trying it, it didn't live up to the hype. The velvet teddy colour is nice and neutral, good for every day but the lipstick aggravated my lips. Some drugstore brands are just as good as this and half the price.

    Doreethy

    Velvet teddy is my perfect nude! I always have it in my collection :D
  2. Lady Danger

    Elle

    MAC lipsticks are my go-to - I won't wear any other brand. Lady Danger is the most gorgeous matte orange-red shade. Love wearing this or Russian Red when I'm doing a full face of glam
  3. Lovee

    Natasha

    I see why there's a hype to teddy velvet,in love with the colour.
  4. Great color and highly pigmented

    Nadine

    This lipstick is highly pigmented and long wearing, it doesn’t leave your lips dry even though it’s a matt formula. It goes perfect with MAC lip-liners as the colors are true to swatch. It’s in my hand bag to stay
  5. Velvet Teddy - Beautiful everyday nude, V drying formula.

    Cat

    The shade (velvet Teddy) is so beautiful and absolutely perfect for everyday wear or a night out. The lipstick felt creamy going on my lips but I find these Mac lipsticks incredibly drying and I end up with very chapped, dry, peeling lips.
    I so badly wanted this to be an everyday lipstick but because it is so drying it absolutely doesn't work for everyday use.
    I've found other matte li...

  6. Lady Danger - Fire Orange Red but V Drying

    Cat

    Colour:
    LOVE the colour! I had to search far and wide to find a shade like this! I naturally have a lot of pink pigment in my lips and EVERY red lipstick I would put on would come out looking that cool toned pink red! I wanted a RED RED! An orange red! Finally I put this on and.. VA VOOM, I had my RED lipstick, that truly felt RED and not pink! I do find this shade can make my teeth look a l...

  7. Cant go wrong

    Tracy

    Got the classic Velvet Teddy shade, best terrecotta every day nudey brown. Smooth and creamy, stays on all day. Issue is smells a bit like play-dough after a while
  8. Alright

    Amy

    First time buying mac lipsticks and while the shades were nice, they were quite drying and definitely need to exfoliate/moisturise prior. As the title suggests, they were alright
  9. Holy grail lipstick

    Ziggy

    Absolute classic. You can’t go wrong with a Mac matte lippy, I have been repurchasing for years. The best range of colours especially when it comes to nude and brown shades. Extremely matte and long lasting without drying out your lips and causing them to flake. Lipstick glides on almost like a cream but super bold and opaque. I have tried many over priced lipsticks but I always tend to come bac...

  10. A classic for a reason

    Starry

    Matte but not drying, this lipstick is a classic. It has a thick consistency and is true to colour, unlike some matte lipsticks which seem to darken over time after application. The colour choice is phenomenal. It lost half a star because sometimes it pills after too many reapplications.
  11. Velvet teddy

    S

    I tried this in velvet teddy. Definitely a gorgeous neutral tone and would suit most skin types.
  12. Comfortable matte

    Christina

    I love this lipstick in the shade Chili. It is a non-drying matte, however I would recommend exfoliating your lips and applying a nourishing lip balm before using this. Excellent colour payoff and glides on easily.
  13. Great shades

    skincareobsessed

    I purchased the mac shade-honeylove. I usually buy natural/organic lipsticks, but I thought I'd give a high end brand a go, and I really like it. I love the shade range and I cant wait to try more colours.
  14. You cannot beat MAC lipticks

    Samantha

    They are hyped for a reason because they are perfect!
  15. Love the Taupe

    BK

    I have this lipstick in Taupe and I love it. It is easy to apply. It feels comfortable on the lips and its a great colour.
  16. nice colour choices

    Tracy

    dry but good collection of colour choices
  17. chilli

    Sharon

    chilli is the best colour I like from MAC matte lipstick, it stays long and water proof. doesn't look oily.
  18. Perfect lipsticks

    Kelly

    I love Mac Lipsticks, Marrakech and Chili are my favorite shades, they are perfect. As long as you do lip care, this lipstick is perfect.
  19. Love mac Lippies!

    Karley

    I brought the honeylove shade and honestly found it to be a perfect nude shade, can easily be worn daily. The formula is nice & comfortable. I dont find it drying at all which is a real bonus as i cant wear the really drying lip formulas, they crack on my lips. It is moisturising & also has a good lasting power. Worth the price & is a staple in my beauty bag.
  20. Literally my favourite lipsticks

    Anskies

    I only use MAC lipsticks. The shades are great, the packaging is sweet and simple, the price tag is decent and they last for ages!!
  21. OG of lipstick

    Alexa

    I love MAC's collection of lipsticks. They are very pigmented and not overly drying like other matte lipsticks. My favorite shades are Velvet Teddy which is a beautiful pinky/ brown color suitable for day wear and Taupe which is a fantastic 90's brown. Love!
  22. Subtle but striking!

    Carley

    Such a beautiful everyday wearing lipstick
    Matte finish but doesn't dry out my lips
  23. Taupe

    hanabi

    I currently own only three lipsticks and MAC Taupe is one of them. The formula is light and the smell is so nice. I like to pat the lipstick onto my lips with my finger. I'm NC25 and Taupe is a beautiful all year round color...it's bricky red brown and looks beautiful when sheered out for a day look. It brightens up my face when I'm only wearing eyeliner and mascara, no shadow.
  24. Another amazing shade purchase!

    Hannah

    I recently purchased Honeylove and wore it out and I love it! It’s similar to velvet teddy but lighter so gives you a different look. Again with all the lipsticks the consistency is so nice and so comfortable to wear. I need more!!
  25. Great staple lipstick

    Jane

    I love the mac matte lipstick - it lasts a long time, applies smoothly and has beautiful flattering colours. However, I would suggest those who have dry lips apply a thick layer of lip balm before use or choose to use one of the other mac lipstick formulas that are less drying.
  26. Great lipsticks, not a bad price either

    Hannah

    I purchased Velvet Teddy and I look forward to everytme I get to wear it!! Not too drying, the perfect matte! Such a nice nude colour as well! I want them all!!
  27. yes

    jess

    can you ever go wrong with a mac lipstick? I wore yash on wedding day with spice lip liner and love it.
  28. Perfect

    Jess

    I love this matte lipstick! It doesn’t dry out my lips and has such good coverage! It is not a “16 hour” lip stain but does do the job!
  29. Perfect

    Jess

    I love this matte lipstick! It doesn’t dry out my lips and has such good coverage! It is not a “16 hour” lip stain but does do the job!
  30. Silky smooth

    Katelyn

    These lipsticks are so smooth and silky when being applied on the lips. They last ages and have a beautiful colour! My fav is velvet teddy
  31. Holy grail lipstick

    Sav

    Velvet teddy ! Omg what an amazing shade and the pigment is incredible. The formula on these lipsticks is hands down wonderful
  32. Classics

    Meg

    I have the shades Honey Love and Velvet Teddy and was surprised by how long they actually stay on for. Always wear on nights out. Definitely a bit pricey for my student budget, but love them nonetheless.
  33. Staple lipstick

    Jess

    Mac lipsticks are famous for a reason - stunning colour and long lasting formula. My must have shades are honey love and velvet teddy - perfect nudes for day AND night wear!
  34. The best lipsticks for every skin tone!

    Jais

    My favourite lipsticks of all time! Beautiful matte finish, they aren't drying on the lips, and the shade range is incredible something for every skin tone in there.
  35. Not the best

    Steph

    This lipstick is constantly raved about and after trying it, it didn't live up to the hype. The velvet teddy colour is nice and neutral, good for every day but the lipstick aggravated my lips. Some drugstore brands are just as good as this and half the price.
  36. The best lipsticks in the world

    Caitlyn

    My favourite formula for lipsticks and super easy to apply and carry in your purse for easy application.
  37. good lipstick

    anomymous

    i like mac lipsticks in general, but i find the matte formula to be quite dry but it is long lasting. i usually wear these on night out when i want them to last longer but for everyday i wouldnt use these as its not really comfortable.
  38. Honey love = holy grail!!

    Georgia

    Ive been using these lipsticks since I can remember and the never disappoint! Some shades especially the darker ones are a little too matte and can be drying but the nude shades are the perfect consistency! Honey love is the best nude ever and I also love velvet teddy for something slightly darker or for when im fake tanned.
  39. Drying and different colour

    Siobhan

    I have heard such great things about this lipstick, but after trying it I found it really drying. I know it's matte, but I have tried other matte lipsticks that are much more moisturising. Also, I find the colours to be quite different on my lips than how they actually look, which is a shame. I don't mind the Chili tint but it's a bit too vibrant on me.
  40. Smooth

    D

    Super smooth application and lasts hours. doesnt ball up like other matte lipsticks and has a super creamy formula!
  41. Powerful lipsticks

    Isabella

    I would definitely recommend MACs lipsticks. They create such powerful pigment and leave a lasting colour on the lips. I do find that they can be quite drying however when used in conjunction with MACs lipbalm this is no longer an issue.
  42. Torally love these lipsticks

    Chemgeek

    I love my lip products and have tried many mid to high range brands as well as pharmacy brands back in uni days. I always come back to Mac for lipstick and their matte lipsticks are one of my favourites. For reference I’m an NC 40-42 in Mac foundation and chilli, mehr, diva, lady danger, taupe are great matches for my skin tone.
  43. Beautiful

    Troops

    The perfect matte lipstick! Lasts so long and feels great on the lips!
  44. all rounder

    t

    so smooth, glides on really nicely. there’s a lovely colour and they don’t dry out my lips. a great formula!
  45. Great Colours, Dries Lips

    xthutranx

    I love the colour range. Mac lippies are a classic. I do find that if your lips are not well prepped, the lipsticks can be very crying. (esp the matte finishes)
  46. Trusty favourite

    Ness

    Velvet teddy is one of my all time favourite lipsticks. Has a beautiful creamy consistency while remaining semi matte. It's not too drying and a very versatile colour.
  47. Good colors but drying

    Jessica

    They have a lot of great colors but I found for myself that the texture can be a bit drying. I felt I always needed to put a light layer of lip balm before this lipstick.
  48. Glides so smoothly

    Danni

    Glides very smoothly on the lips! Although since it is matte, best to moisturise the lips (lip balm, etc) before applying, otherwise it sinks in to cracks and makes it looked chapped.
  49. This colour is perfect!

    Maya

    This colour is honesty perfect, it’s such a beautiful texture and doesn’t dry out my lips like some other lip sticks do.
  50. Best matte lipstick

    Georgie

    I am in love with these Mac lipsticks. They are beautiful on the lips, the colours are amazing and they are so moisturizing
  51. OG Lipstick

    Nat

    These lipsticks have been my ride or die for over 10 years. Wear them everyday and could not fault them if I tried!

    Favourite shades;
    -Please Me
    -Mehr
    -Diva
    -Honeylove
    -Velvet Teddy
  52. Love!

    Mon57

    I love the MAC matte formula. It feels and looks amazing on the lips. It is not a drying formula so I love it. Velvet teddy is a shade everyone has to try.
  53. Honeylove is worth the hype

    MB

    Honeylove is absolutely worth the hype! Shoutout to Chantelle Baker and Rozalia Russian who sold me on this one, the colour is amazing and suits me when I'm fair and in my usual loving tan colour!
  54. Honey Love Lipstick

    Jessica

    Honey love is a gorgeous nude colour that suites my natural extremely pale skin tone and even suits me when I have a super dark stray tan. Only took 1 star off as it is quite drying and I have lines in my lips which can make it look gross. But I’m sure if your lips were more full and hydrated than mine you wouldn’t have that problem :)
  55. velvet teddy

    kim

    so beautiful on a variety of different skintones, so in love with this smooth and creamy matte formula
  56. oldie but a goodie

    Alex

    best matte lipstick, lasts forever and have a great price point.
  57. Go to lipstick

    Bridget

    The Mac Matte formula is my go to lipstick formula, the shade Velvet Teddy is always in my handbag ready to go. They feel comfortable on, last quite a while, and have a nice vanilla scent.
  58. old time favourite

    mack

    You really can't go wrong with this lipstick, the formula is great and timeless
  59. My favourite brand of lipsticks!

    F

    Every MAC lipstick I've tried is extremely moisturising, light and pigmented. Even better now that they've reduced their price. I have no bad things to say!
  60. So creamy

    Cindy

    Love these lippies as they are so creamy, pigmented, easy application. The colour velvet teddy is my favvvv
  61. Great colours

    Ali

    Great colours in this collection of lipsticks. My favourites being Velvet Teddy and Taupe for that perfect everyday nude. However they are slightly drying on lips and needs a good lip balm underneath. I recommend Burts Bees in Honey, as they are not oily and absorb fast.
  62. Matte Lipstick

    Sair

    Just received this lipstick in Velvet Teddy. It is great!!! Great colour choice for my olive skin tone and love that the matte lipstick goes on so smoothly.
  63. Best matte lipstick i have used

    Stargazer

    I usually dont like matte lipsticks as they make my lips look dry but this one doesnt. I have olive skin and the shade Diva is beautiful!
  64. Down to an art

    D

    It's a beautiful colour and the staying power is amazing. It is however drying on the lips so I use lip balm before applying this.
  65. a comfortable lipstick

    LILY

    These lipsticks are super comfortable on the lips - I find that they do tend to try out my dry lips and grab to dry areas however, pairing this with the Lip Prep+Prime has worked marvellously for me. I also really like using this as a cream blush - very easy formula to blend out and packs a lot of pigment! My favourite shade is definitely Brick-O-La!
  66. In love

    Bre

    The ultimate matte lipsticks. They smell amazing and look amazing too. Very moisturising and apply great. Not drying
  67. can be drying

    AA

    good matte lipstick however it can be too drying and crusty on the lips. colours are amazing though.
  68. Soar

    Av

    Soar is such a beautiful colour and suits all skin tones. Lasts all day but can be a bit drying on the lips. With MAC lipsticks, I have found the key is to exfoliate lips before applying lipstick.
  69. Amazing lipsticks!

    Kris

    I absolutely love Mac lipsticks. They’re such good quality I find they apply so much more smooth and easier than you’re average lipstick and the colours are so broad so you can get a natural colour or a bold colour and they’re all so beautiful and look great on. 100% recommend for the price point.
  70. My new favourite

    Jen

    Act natural is one of the best shades I own! For night times I really pile it on with a lip liner and looks so good with a bronzer and during the day I apply a light cover with some gloss which gives a nice subtle nude lip.
  71. Best matte formula ever!

    Maria

    MAC has the best matte lipstick formula! It is amazing. I absolutely love it. It does not feel drying on the lips and looks amazing. My favourite shades are honey love, velvet teddy, whirl, soar and please me. Also, love the new price tag!!
  72. balls up

    s

    This lipstick never sets nicely and always balls up,l I always have to end up taking it off
  73. Lovely shades

    Emma Loves Makeup

    I have used MAC lipstick for years and love all the colours they bring out! It looks lovely on. My only cons are that it is a bit exxy and it is drying on it's own. I usually layer on top of a lip balm or put a moisturising gloss on top.
  74. Great colours, drying on the lips

    Hannah

    Can’t go wrong with the colours and the payoff, but as an all night lipstick I do find they are quite drying.
  75. Love the colour

    Sarah

    Got this in Kinda Sexy and it is such a great colour. Very flattering for my skin tone. If I layer this with the right kind of lip balm it sits great, otherwise on it's own it's a little drying.
  76. Great!

    Lucy

    The only lipstick i will wear so easy to apply and lasts ages! All the colours are soo beautiful!
  77. Pretty

    Margo

    Kinda sexy is a light coral colour, it looks nude on my medium olive completion.
    It is very pretty but I'd suggest buying a slightly darker lip liner with it if you have a skin tone like me.
  78. Amazing

    Alice

    I always use a lip ointment before lipsticks and this lipstick lasts all day and it looks beautiful on my lips
  79. my favourite lipstick

    Alex

    I own so many mac lipsticks, the matte version is my favourite.

    They are super comfortable on the lips, and they last forever.
    Plus they are very affordable, and comparable to the super high end expensive lipsticks.

    For someone that is pale like me, my favourite colours of the matte shades are velvet teddy and kinda sexy.
    However I have to point out that ...

  80. Nudes to Die For!

    Alex

    Mac lipsticks are great. I love the colours and the consistency. I don't wear lipstick all that often but I do enjoy it here and there and when I do Mac and Nars are my go to! I prefer a more natural look so I always love the natural, nude colours.
  81. So Pretty and Moisturizing

    Ava

    I have always loved MAC cosmetics and I wanted a color that would be neutral for work. I fell in love with the color and it left my lips soft throughout the day without drying them out and the color lasted. Will definitely purchase more to keep on hand and other colors for nights out!
  82. Worn every day for nearly two years

    Lara

    I love the colour Honey Love - I can't imagine heading to work without it. While it is a bit drying, it lasts for a long time and the pigment is amazing!
  83. Velvet Teddy

    Samantha

    I wear this lipstick most days and it doesn't dry out my lips.
  84. Too many choices on colors!

    Hercy

    I really like some colors from this and I bought a few of this brand. It has a good coverage and last a long time, but it's too dry for me. I have to use lip balm first before I use it.
  85. Love the color!

    Gebi

    My skin tone is medum-deep golden, I though this would be too bright. But I was wrong, the color looks good on me and last at least 5 hours after an application the morning.
  86. Good

    Jackie

    Smooth texture, easy to apply and lasts awhile. Beautiful colour.
  87. The best!

    Ceina

    Mac lipsticks are just amazing, amazing and amazing. I particularly love Velvet Teddy just fabulous. My next purchase would probably go towards the Red's to see how they are! so far very positive about Velvet Teddy, such a smooth application
  88. Good

    T

    a bit drying, but I love the pigmentation and deep mauvish plum looks good.
  89. Last long enough

    Saka

    Last long enough - longer than your drugstore lipsticks, but i prefer my Nars, Chantecaille etc as it lasts much longer on my lips. Maybe price really does make a difference to quality...
  90. Velvet teddy

    Maree

    My all time favourite lippie and colour, velvet teddy! Such a beautiful natural shade stays put all day and looks amazing
  91. OG lipsticks

    JV

    Such a great lipstick. Great range of shades and finishes. Last a couple of hours, as long as your not eating too much with it
  92. Love Mac lipsticks

    Isabel

    I absolutely love Mac, matte lipsticks. Velvet teddy is a favourite shade of mine. The packaging is nice and sleek. The formulation is lovely and feels nice on the lips.
  93. beautiful lipstick

    hak1

    Mac lipstick have one of the best formulas. Also they have a great shade range. I love the classic velvet teddy and also mehr. I think those are the classic that everyone just loves. The formulas is matte and hydrating one the lips . I think I have 6 -7 Mac lipsticks
  94. Double fudge

    Cherru

    the only deep color that i will ever wear. very nice formula, i usually get eczema on my lips but this never dries out my lips. i totally adore it
  95. Lady Danger & Diva are must-have reds!

    Peta

    Lady Danger is my favourite colour in this lipstick. It is like a red-orange-coral colour. I am quite fair (blue eyes and blonde hair) and the colour works so well (better with a bit of light tan). Diva is a darker burgundy colour and is amazing for night-time events. looks great on blondes! My friends now use it after using mine.
  96. Long lasting

    Willow

    The MAC matte lipsticks are my go to for colour and wear! They last quite a long time before having to reapply due to their matte finish. Teddy and Honeylove are my favourites for a nude lip.
