MAC Lipsticks // Brave & Velvet Teddy

If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I recently won @pinkpixiedoll of Pearls and Poodles MAC lipstick giveaway. They arrived super fast, accompanied by a lovely little note on a macaroon themed card.

The reason I even entered the giveaway is because I knew these shades would be great for my paler skin tone, plus I tend to wear fairly neutral, nude lipsticks anyway, so naturally I was delighted to win!

MAC Lipsticks in Velvet Teddy and Brave

The shades are ‘Velvet Teddy’ and ‘Brave’.

Brave (satin) on the right, and Velvet Teddy (matte) on the left. Brave looks a bit pinker here than it is in reality, and Velvet Teddy is slightly more brown. The swatches below give a better representation.

I’m atrocious at taking/having lipstick photos taken so I hope the swatches surfice for anyone interested in these two shades. If I manage to pluck up the courage to post a ‘lip pic’ then I’m sure it’ll appear on my Instagram feed.

Have you tried either of these shades? What do you think of them?
