- "Very pigmented color, goes perfectly with the Heroine lipliner. I love to pair it with an easy eye look with bold eyelashes. The formula is creamy, but will run if you don't apply liner." in 25 reviews
M.A.C Cosmetic Shadescents Lipstick in Velvet Teddy was the second of the fragrances I tried. I got it blindly as a sample with a MAC order. I fell madly in love. MADLY. What I mean is, I have purchased 7 bottles so far and do not intend on stopping.
The top notes are Bergamot, Ginger and Tobacco Blossom. The middle notes are Mimosa, Vanilla Orchid and Honey. Finally, the base notes are Musk, Papyrus and Tonka Bean. Oddly, this build, in my opinion, gives you no real indication of the scent. Many compare this loosely to Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille and I can understand the similarities. What I smell is a warm, creamy, honey vanilla with rich tobacco and faint fresh coffee. The scent drives me crazy in a good way and I have never in my life had so many compliments on a scent while wearing it in my life.
It is a deeply sensual scent, very sexy... perfect for cooler months or springtime nights. Did I say VERY sexy?
Velvet Teddy has a moderate to heavy sillage without being cloying.... but rather....intoxicating. It is also very long lasting. Others will smell it on you long after you have gone nose blind to it yourself.
This has become my signature scent. And it is so AFFORDABLE! I actually prefer this to Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and that saves me a LOT of money!
It's just gorgeous and considering MAC fragrances have always been big hits or misses, I'm thrilled to have not given up on them after finding so many misses. This is a hit out of the ballpark. A total home run.
Key Note: Exotic Pink Guava
A flirty fragrance with electric fruits, like pink guava at the heart." Is how it is written on the MAC site.
I have had soo many compliments on this perfume. Its lasting power is amazing yet its subtle and not overpowering. I highly recommend this perume, its officially my holy grail perfume. You can find it at MAC stores, Macy's and other high end stores. The perfume is around $57 but you can also buy a gift set which includes the full size perfume, lipstick in matching color and a convenient rollerball all for the same price of $57. I am including a picture from Macy's.
I LOVE this color.
It’s a staple item in my kit because it can serve as the perfect nude for so many skin tones.
Pair with Nightmoth liner for a more wine look
Pair with chestnut liner for a more nude
Pair with a pale liner for lighter skinned clientele to keep it true to color.
