While running through Dubai airport a couple of weeks ago I popped into duty-free quickly to replenish my lipstick collection at MAC and bought two lipsticks that have quickly become firm favourites. Please Me (the perfect matte pink lipstick) and Velvet Teddy (everyone's favourite matte nude lip) are both absolutely glorious to wear, so much so that I thought I'd take a little time out from my holiday to write about them!
First up we have Please Me, a muted rosy-tinted pink that is the perfect amount of pink for me. I generally prefer to wear more purple/red shades of pink, so this is really my first proper pink shade. I'm an absolute convert, as I love how it complements my skin tone without looking too garish - believe me, if I could pull off bright pink I would be on that in a minute. I've been wearing it with only a swipe of mascara as it's perfect for that bare faced and innocent kind of look.
Finally, we've got Velvet Teddy, perhaps one of the most famous MAC lipstick doing the rounds at the moment thanks to certain reality TV stars shining a light on it. Put all reservations aside, as this really is an incredible shade that deserves its popularity. It's the perfect deep-tone beige with a matte finish that is certain to suit virtually anyone (if you can get your hands on it).
What are your favourite MAC lipsticks? Please sound off in the comments, as I'll be going back through duty-free this week and want to pick up some more! #addict
