The popular lipstick has earned a cult status with its universally flattering nude shade that suits many skin tones all over the world
With a deep ‘beige-meets-rosy’ undertone, the fan-favourite shade offers long lasting colour with ‘comfortable all-day wear’.
The lipstick contains vitamin E to ensure the colour ‘glides onto lips smoothly without causing skin dehydration’.
More than 600 fans have left glowing 4.7 star ratings on the Mecca website, with many describing it as the ‘perfect nude shade’.
‘Hands down the best lipstick. It’s beautiful – nice scent and a gorgeous velvety texture with a stunning matte finish,’ one fan said.
Another woman said: ‘There is a reason the Velvet Teddy is time and time again the most popular colour in the Mac range. It is the perfect well defined nude needed in every girls kit. Just buy it – you will not be disappointed.’
One single woman described the shade as the ‘best lipstick wingman ever’.
‘I recently bought this amazing shade to celebrate heading back in to the dating world. It has survived two out of two dates without the amazingly rich pigment fading let alone slipping, bleeding, sliding or gravitating to my teeth,’ she said.
‘Even when making out (both dates were great kissers, thanks for asking), this incredible lipstick was reliable. Best lipstick wingman EVER.’
