MAC's website describe it as a "deep toned beige". and I would say that is a pretty accurate depiction. It has the perfect blend of a deep, cappuccino brown paired with really subtle antique pink undertones. Seeing as I was searching for the perfect nude, I could not be happier to add this cult classic "Kylie Jenner" (cliche, but it had to be said) to my collection. It doesn't give me foundation lips or wash me out at all, it just works and I haven't worn anything else since!
One thing worth noting is that I tend to pair it with MAC's lip liner in Whirl to really beef up my lips and add a bit more depth if I am wearing it in the evening, just to intensify the brown a bit more.
Have you tried Velvet Teddy? If so, I would love to know your thoughts!
