I wanted to share a little about my two favourite lipstick shades EVER. Yep, seriously. These colours are my all time faves. It probably comes as no surprise to you that they are MAC's Velvet Teddy and Honeylove. I feel that any true MAC fan or lipstick lover out there probably owns at least one or the other of these shades. 

For me, MAC just seem to get it so right with their nude lipsticks. Other than these two shades, they have an endless array of different coloured nudes to suit every skin tone.  

Velvet Teddy is a gorgeous pinky undertoned nude. It's almost got a rose-like undertone to it which is lovely on a more pale skin tone because it really warms it up - one of those, 'my lips but better' kinda colours. It has been my go to for years and for a long time, the only shade I ever wore. On a night out at uni, I managed to lose my Velvet Teddy somewhere and somehow between our front door and the taxi... first thing the next morning I ordered a brand new one. - if that doesn't explain how much I rate this lippy, I don't know what will.

The second shade is Honeylove. This is a fairly new purchase - but still as special all the same. It's a more peachy-beige tone which looks FAB with a tan on a Saturday night. This shade is my favourite to pair with my go-to burnt orange eye make up look at the moment (If you're thinking about the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, then we are on the exact same wavelength). 

The shade Honeylove is the left swatch and the shade Velvet Teddy is the right.
