My fave Emma Watson x Porter cover from 2015

Nude lips are my go-to at the moment. This MAC duo (velvet teddy + soar) and the shade 'gemini' by Jeffree Star are what I'm lately gravitating towards when browsing my stash. I remember a few years ago, 'velvet teddy' was literally sold out  e v e r y w h e r e  because Kylie Jenner, 'nuff said. 

I purchased 'velvet teddy' and 'soar' from Asos, they've been selling MAC for a little while now which is pretty great. They also sell little miniatures of different MAC products which are so cute! (not sponsored at all by the way)

The shade 'velvet teddy' is matte but has a bit of a shine to it so, to me it's not a true matte... it's matte but not matte? That being said, the formula is really creamy, not drying on the lips and very pigmented. The lasting power is pretty average in comparison to something like the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks.

I cannot fault the lipliner in the shade 'soar'. It doesn't drag & has a creamy texture. It also sharpens really well.

Excuse my nails

Over all I recommend this duo. The only major flaw is that the MAC 'velvet teddy' lippie isn't a true matte but it's close enough. The hydrating formula definitely makes it ideal for daily wear. 

If you're looking for a truly nude matte lipstick then I definitely recommend the velour liquid lipsticks by Jeffree Star, I mentioned the shade 'gemini' earlier - this a a really pretty brown/nude shade, similar to 'velvet teddy'.
