MAC VELVET TEDDY LIPSTICK

Note my epic fail when I approached the saleslady with too much excitement (an aunt of mine right then wanted me to choose makeup items for myself as a thank you gift) : “Do you have MAC SILK Teddy lipstick?” MAC lady sadly shakes her head “No, Ma’am, sorry.  We don’t carry Silk Teddy.” My face falls, still not realizing my mistake.  She does a mind scan, then “Ah, but Ma’am we have Velvet Teddy!”.  I slap my head and face palm “Yes, yes, yun pala…VELVET TEDDY, that’s what I meant.  Omy, you have it?  Yayyy”  To think I almost missed it.  I fondly blame Anna of Vivianna Does Makeup for enabling me to hunt this down.  Thankfully, I received it as a gift.

It was quite tough to source the “original” post that proved one of Kylie Jenner’s go-to lipstick shades was MAC Velvet Teddy coupled with Spice lipliner (yup, other than her lipliner only picks MAC Whirl and MAC Soar).  I didn’t even want to put her name in the title of this blog post in case I was wrong.  Read on to see me try it.

“The collection will feature an orange lipstick, coral eyeshadow, mineralize skinfinish, and an orange nail lacquer.  MAC just confirmed this collection via their Twitter and Facebook.”

Sounds Like Noise: Bright true orange (Lipstick) (Matte)
Daydreaming: Frosted mid-tone coral (Eyeshadow) (Veluxe Pearl)
Lightscapade: Soft candlelight beige with multi-dimensional shimmer (Mineralize Skinfinish)
Riot Gear: Bright true orange (Nail Lacquer) (Cream)

Yea, no kidding that’s all I had to say right?  If you don’t know who Paramore’s lead singer is…she’s been around FOR AWHILE and has been singing pro since she was about 15 and Hayley Williams is not just another young girl screaming at a microphone.  She really sings, as in seriously sings…and her ability to pull off pop-py, alternative grunge cool and keeping pretty without looking too androgynous is what gets her admired in the beauty community. I learned more about Hayley 4 years ago when I watched this interview about her and her development as a singer (playable only on laptops or desktop devices). The collection is a tricky one to get and will launch on April 9, 2013 and will be available exclusively online for a limited time only. Sigh* I’m glad I didn’t get any of the Archie items. I really…really dig what this is looking like. Hayley is just sooo irritatingly cool. If you’ve never heard her sing here’s one of her more popular mellow performances from 5 years ago, Paramore’s Live Acoustic Cover of the Kings of Leon song “Use Somebody” ( this link can be watched on all devices) .  Also embedding here for a slightly more recent but still not so new video their acoustic jam for the song “The Only Exception” where Hayley’s rocker chic makeup is just…just perfect to me…it’s just enough and sooo pretty.
