If you're not a fan of the Ruby Woo style finish, you probably won't like this very much, but I have to say that despite having a collection of over 300 lipsticks, my favourite mattes are definitely by MAC.
Velvet Teddy is a beautiful soft brown. Full of intense pigment, it layers your lips with a gorgeous shade that will suit most skin tones - which is probably why it's so popular.
It's a signature colour that you would purchase over and over again because it's incredibly flattering and very wearable. Matte finishes always make me feel like my pout is much more prominent, and Velvet Teddy is an ideal everyday shade.
I wore this with Topshop's lip liner in Ceramic and the duo are the perfect partners in crime for this look.
Velvet Teddy is neutral toned, so if you struggle to find a similar matte shade for your skin tone, this one will not fail you.
