MAC Cosmetic Haul: Kylie Jenner's Beauty Secret - 'Spice' Lip Liner & 'Velvet Teddy' Review

Aloha!


A couple of months ago everyone was obsessed with Kylie Jenner's lips, with girls all over the beauty world trying to emulate her trademark pout (not always successfully, I've seen some horrific / hilarious videos on Vine). But even if you aren't blessed with full lips or the bank account to be able to afford to have your pout plumped up, you'll definitely be able to copy her style and try a few tricks of the trade to transform your smile.

I recently lost my MAC makeup virginity and decided to purchase both a lip liner and lipstick online. It took a fair few hours of internet searching, reading beauty blog reviews and googling KJ's beauty secrets for me to find the shades and styles I wanted, but eventually I settled on two products perfect for recreating Kylie's makeup look. The lip liner I chose was MAC's iconic, undisputed beauty staple in 'Spice' accompanied by their incredibly popular lipstick in 'Velvet Teddy' - this particular colour sold out for a few months back at the start of the year due to the 'Kyle Jenner effect' after beauty bloggers everywhere discovered this was her shade of choice.

Not having purchased any of MAC's cosmetics before I was pretty apprehensive about receiving Velvet Teddy, I don't tend to buy lipsticks online without trying them in-store first as they can appear completely different in a photograph compared to a swatch on your skin. However upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised by the tone. Described by many as being 'your lips but better,' I couldn't of phrased it better myself! It's the perfect nude, matte lipstick with a subtle hint of brown to it that looks great whether you're going for a demure vibe during winter or a 'barely there' bronzed beach goddess glow over the summer months. I personally find that on my skin it suits me best when I'm more tanned as I prefer a peachier lipstick shade to add a flush of colour to my face on paler days.

I was particularly amazed by the staying power of this particular product, perhaps it's because of it's matte finish but this lipstick really stayed put throughout the day with minimal touch ups. The buttery feel of the product really was long lasting too which surprised me as I find some of my other matte lipsticks to be very drying - I genuinely cannot say a bad word about this product and I'm just so pleased I treated myself to it.

Paired with my Spice lip liner it creates a subtle, ombré effect which I adore and have already set my sights on many of MAC's other lip products - I predict this to be the beginning of a long love affair!

What MAC lipstick do you personally recommend?  Or do you have a favourite shade?

Thank you for reading!

Until next time..
