This product is really good to use before applying a matte lipstick. I have fine lines on my lips and this helps to hide them before applying lipstick. The price is a bit hefty and you could use a chapstick for the same effect though.
MAC Velvet teddy is a holy grail for me. I sheer out the formula on my lips for a more nude look or swipe it heavier for a deep nude. The formula is very buildable and I feel like it doesn’t highlight any dry bits. Love it!
