MAC Cosmetics Velvet Teddy vs. Rimmel Kate #30 // COMPARISON

Today's post is yet again a comparison between two lipsticks. This time it's MAC's Velvet Teddy that everyone has recently been loving, thanks to Kylie Jenner and another Rimmel by Kate Moss lipstick in shade 30. I know they don't seem to be the exact same, but they are very similar. You could probably also compare the Rimmel one to MAC's Honeylove because it's a bit lighter than Velvet Teddy is but I don't own that one (yet). I just wanted to give you guys an idea on how they look compared in case you are looking for drugstore alternatives for the gorgeous Kylie Jenner lip look.

Here are swatches of them on my hand (left: Rimmel Kate in 30, right: MAC's Velvet Teddy):

As you can also see when they are swatched, the Rimmel one is a bit lighter than Velvet Teddy is and also Velvet Teddy has a matte finish while the Rimmel lipstick is not (which isn't necessarily bad because matte lipstick can dry your lips out quite a bit). I honestly find the Rimmel one more flattering on very fair skin like mine but if you love darker, brownish lips, you can also go for Velvet Teddy. Really, it doesn't matter what skin tone you have, you can wear whatever the heck you want to, if people think dark lips look weird on you, whatever. If you like it, you wear it!

Hopefully this could give you a little idea on what they both look like compared in case you ever wanted to know (may it be because you can only get them online or because you are too lazy to go to the stores and swatch them yourself, whatever it may be, I hope I could help!)
