Obsessed With #13: MAC Velvet Teddy + MAC Whirl

For the last year or so I have been all about fairly pale nude lipsticks but I do like the odd darker lip from time to time in the colder months. My friend had MAC Velvet Teddy and I thought I would just try it on because I fancied trying a more brown nude and I quickly became a bit obsessed with it. I'm not going to lie, I do love a bit of a Kylie Jenner makeup lewk and I think this lipstick combined with my new lip liner (MAC Whirl) is a winning combo. 

I'm really not into buying makeup at the moment, I'm trying to use things up, give things away and I've only really been buying makeup when I've run out of something and it needs replacing. However, as I said I fancied a browny nude and I had tried Velvet Teddy so I kind of needed to get my own instead of constantly stealing my friend's (right?). I got Whirl to go with it because although it is supposed to be a bit rose toned I just find it to be a straight up nude brown on me, similar to Velvet Teddy. I like to overdraw my lips a bit so I do like a matching lip liner if possible. I don't think I have ever owned a Matte MAC lipstick and I have heard that some of the red shades can be way too dry in formula but I find this pretty comfortable to wear and it still has a bit of slip.

I've been wearing this with golden or brown eye looks with brown gel liner. This might be a bit full on for some people but I love love love.
