Standard MAC packaging.
Very overrated for a nude lippy. Definitely had better ones sit against my complexion and I found it to be quite opaque. I like the soft application and it sits nice on the lip, just not very long lasting.
More of an orange-y shade than a nude.

I am quite on and off about this lipstick. The colour is stunning, however it is marketed as a nude which I disagree with as it runs quite deep on my fair skin tone. However, it is very creamy and opaque. it also tends to wear off in patches on the lips and requires a few layers for full opacity. A lovely every day shade but for the hype I was slightly disappointed.

This is my favourite lip product ever. Not only is the packaging nice and simple and the formula really nice but the colour is absolutely gorgeous. I truly believe that it would suit any skintone as it is so diverse and looks different on everybody. This is a holy grail product for me and I strongly recommend everybody having one in their collection

Purchased from Mac website in UK. Really love this shade - Mac lipsticks tend to vary in formula across the entire range, but this one glides on easily and yet is not too shiny looking and it stays put well. I'm pale skinned and it is quite dramatic on me but still ok for daytime. Makes my lips look fuller and has just enough warmth and richness. Only gripe is that the cap sometimes comes loose in my makeup bag!

Love Love Love this lippie, it is the perfect nude with a matte finish, but it doesn't dry out your lips but lasts forever! really compliments any look and looks great! I receive lots of compliments when wearing this so will definately pick up again if I lost or ran out of this!!

This is the matte lipstick that will most likely outlive any other nude-spectrum shade in my collection. For me personally, it is a color I can reach for with any number of day or night, casual or bold, year-round looks and somehow not get bored. It's not pale but not dark, not orangey but not mauvey, you get the drift. Just a true brown-based medium nude with full opacity that somehow doesn't scream "Brown" on me, but adds just enough to button up any look I am going for.

This is a honest nude color, not a rosy pink or a mauve, or a cool ashy brown trying to pass off as a nude. If you are opposed to warmer shades I can't say you'll love this, because between cool and warm I believe it leans more warm, but still strikes me as pretty neutral. I don't really like warmer lip colors, they turn orange on me, and this definitely doesn't.

This is full opacity and fully matte, but velvety in finish and not drying on me in the least. The staying power is great, and because it's a more subtle color I feel it wears really well throughout the day.

Say what you will about MAC, but one thing they do consistently well is matte lipsticks, and Velvet Teddy is the one I find myself reaching for most often. This is just a beautiful color and formula, and a hands-down must for anyone who appreciates nude lip colors.

i really like the thin texture of this lipstick. when i drink it hardly leaves a trace on the glass. this is important to me as i do not find the opposite very nice in especially professional context. the color is not overwhelming. its more tad of brown and a bit of pink. i believe it gives different results on different skins. i see more pink on my lips than red. its not overly drying. overall its a winner

This is a beautiful shade but I don't think I'll be purchasing, as my lips are slightly too pigmented for this lipstick (although the color payoff and opacity are great). I'll probably try Spirit or Taupe instead, which look like darker versions of VT. I'm definitely not in a hurry to finish off this lipstick though, since it looks gorgeous on top of my lip liner (RImmel Exaggerate lip liner in 018 Addiction).

PROS:
- lovely color that is pretty opaque
- not as drying as other matte lipsticks
- really smooth application
- sweet vanilla dessert scent
- long lasting, although I need to reapply after greasy food like fried chicken

CONS:
- my lips are a bit too pigmented for this shade, although it looks great with my NC20/25 skintone (I have to use lipliner under it)
- mildly drying, definitely need to use lip balm under it

I'm NC30 and this shade is a gorgeous peachy nude brown. The matte formula is very comfortable on my lips however it does show every line in my lips. Long lasting as well. Best part is that I got it free with my B2M!

Great lipstick. One of my favorites for sure. It's a great color to wear to work, or a meeting but also can be worn at night or to a get together with friends. My only issue is that it is drying. like VERY DRYING. so be sure to moisturize your lips hours in advanced if you are planning to wear it.
