I only bought the cult-classic MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick on Friday (you may have seen my excited tweets), but before I even had time to write a review on it, I accidentally bought a dupe for it on Sunday.
I'm pretty sure this means I need to venture out of my comfort zone when it comes to lipstick shades as I seem to be drawn to the same ones every time, but at least it makes for an awesome dupe blog post!
In case you are unaware of MAC's Velvet Tedddy, it's an iconic matte lipstick in a deep-toned beige hue which is so perfectly pretty, I'm totally obsessing over it already. The one problem is, MAC is in a bit of a grey-area when it comes to animal testing, so for some it's imperative that they find a good dupe of their products.
The dupe I'm talking about in this post is the NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade 'Bedtime Flirt', a liquid lipstick retailing at £6.50. As I mentioned before, I came accross this dupe entirely by accident as yesterday was my best friend's 18th birthday, so I took her to Meadowhall as a birthday treat. Obviously we headed straight to the NYX stand in Boots, and obviously the first thing I did was check out the Soft Matte lip creams.
After I wan't able to shove bitches out the way fast enough to get to them (jk, I hovered around for a bit until it was apparent they weren't going to move) I meandered over to the other side of the stand where, lo and behold, I came upon the fabulous NYX Lip Lingerie range.
The Lip Lingeries are gorgeous nudes (YAAASS all the nudes) described as weightless liquid lipsticks with plush matte finishes. Unable to swatch them as the testers had mysteriously disappeared, I simply picked two which colours stood out to me. The first was Embellishment, a muted purple shade, the second was the lovely Bedtime Flirt.
What do you think to this dupe?
