Sold Out!!!... This is all I heard from Mac regarding their Velvet Teddy lipstick and Soar lipliner for weeks. If you don't know why, then where have you been? Well apparently Kylie Jenner uses said products to get her iconic 90's matte nude lip. Obviously being obsessed with make up and loving the Kardashians/Jenner's, I needed to have them. Therefore when they came back on sale on Mac's website I jumped at the screen and hit purchase like my life was at stake.
I don't have any regrets because the shades and formulas are beautiful. However they are both a lot darker than I thought they would be, I know Kylie isn't exactly dark skinned but I would say these products might be too dark for the palest of skins. Both Velvet Teddy and Soar are pretty much the same but one is a lipstick and one is a lip liner, therefore they pair perfectly together to create the 90's matte dark nude lip.
Velvet Teddy is quite a pinky nude shade, but darker then your usual nude. I would say its more of a your lips but better shade. The finish is beautifully matte but not at all drying and lasts for hours.
Soar is a gorgeous pink toned brown shade, very similar to the lipstick but more rosy in my opinion. As it isn't far off my natural lip shade, it makes a perfect liner. I love Mac liners are they are so easy to use and stay in place well. They are quite creamy so glide on well but leave a nice matte finish.
Thanks for reading
