Velvet & Spice


...and all things nice.

I mentioned Taupe being my favourite ever MAC shade, that is closely followed by the combination of the Spice lip liner paired with Velvet Teddy matte lipstick. 

I love how much of a soft shade Velvet Teddy appears against my skin tone- some people say it looks too "orangey" for them, but I totally disagree, I think it's super warm, soft and easy to wear. It's warm undertones make it very suitable for Autumn when you don't want to rock a berry lip. 
The only downside to VT is that it's a pretty dry matte, after only a couple of hours my lips can feel shrivelled up- however the colour still remains put; I cannot fault the staying power. 

Spice liner is the perfect darker nude shade to outline with, I find that this has cooler more red tinged undertones to it, which cancels out any orangeyness from the lipstick.

Have you tried any of these products?
