Review: MAC Matte Lipstick Velvet Teddy



Review Of MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick...

Guest Post By: Rmyah

I can never get enough MAC. I don’t think anyone can. The quality, the quantity and it actually turns or cheaper than INGLOT. Seriously. Do the math. This always turns out to be my excuse when I end up staring longingly at the MAC windows. And more often than not end up buying way more than I can afford.

One such impulsive buy was the MAC matte lipstick Velvet Teddy. One purchase I do not regret making.
MAC describes Velvet Teddy as a deep toned beige with a matte finish. I find the velvet teddy tending towards a more peachy brown shade on me than a beige.  I am NC42 in MAC currently and this shade is a little more n*de than on me I would want it to be. It border line washes me out but I like the way it is a perfect foil for a dark eye that I prefer doing most of the time.

The Velvet Teddy would be a perfect n*de for those with skin tones up until NC40. This is a definite skip for dusky beauties as it would completely wash you out. No bleach you out.
I love wearing the Velvet Teddy every day to work as it acts as a perfect foil for the smokey eyes I usually prefer doing.
The color payoff is excellent but of course it is MAC. I have medium pigmented lips and this is no way detracts from the color of the lipstick.

MAC’s matte lipsticks I find are not as drying as other matte lipsticks tend to be. It does glide on my lips and does not settle into fine lines.
The lipstick stays on my lips for a good five hours if I blot the color properly. But in case I forget to do that, it transfers onto just about anything I put my lips to ( whoa hold your naughty thoughts, I was talking about tea cups and coffee mugs… these people I tell you). I absolutely hate this as most of the times I don’t have time to blot my lipstick.


Price Of MAC Lipsticks: 

INR 990/- for a 3g lipstick (I can feel it burning a hole in my pocket even writing about it)

Swatches:





Yays:
1. MAC… do you need another yay?
2. Excellent color payoff
3. Non-drying matte lipstick
4. Perfect complement for dark eyes

Nays:
1. Washes out dusky skin
2. Transfers on to surfaces in case we forget to blot the color

Overall rating: 
4/5

Will I look for it again: 
I guess I have many other options for n*des so unless I really want it, I will not buy it again.

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Sexist Remarks We Women Tend To Ignore (But Shouldn't!)
This post has been long due...

Every now and then I come across a sexist remark, sometimes intentional, sometimes not and it makes want to write about it... But life happens, I push the remark to the back burner just the way we are conditioned to in order to prevent a confrontation or more likely to "free" our minds for more "important" things and hence the "writing" never happens...
