MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
This light brown lipstick warms up darker complexions in a single swipe. Wear with a pop of blush for a polished daytime look or pair with a smoky eye for a night out. Its soft-sheen finish ensures lips look plush—never flat or dry.
For the fairest of them all: This sheer mauve-meets-pink lipstick is not so much nude as natural-looking, with a weightless texture that is both moisturizing and extremely flattering on lighter complexions. Plus, the fine flecks of golden shimmer in the formula give the illusion of fuller lips.
This triple-threat compact feels like a gloss, has the color payoff of a matte lipstick, and can be worn as blush—perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. Dab onto cheeks for a rosy glow and onto lips for a prettier pout. The beige-toned hue is especially flattering on medium complexions.
Form meets function with this nourishing lip treatment. Made with highly moisturizing ingredients—like passionflower seed and avocado oil—plus anti-aging vitamin A, this barely there (but buildable) color is great for days when you want a more than just a simple balm.
