This is the first Mac lipstick that I was like 'I need this' since trying matte lipstick's Ive always wanted that perfect brown/pink shade and it ticks all the boxes. I never really understood the 'Velvet Teddy' hype I just thought it was Matte pink shade but I must admit I'm debating it now.
I know my blog is a 'budget' blog but sometimes I have to have the real thing before I can find you a perfect dupe but I've heard NYX 1000 Years is a good one but back to Mac...
First of all I was super lucky to get this as it seems to be out of stock at the moment I think its going to be the whole 'Velvet Teddy' and 'Whirl' situation all over again, so good luck girls. Although as I'm writing this it is in stock but you won't see this until its posted which is a few days later. On the Mac website it is described as 'Muted grey ish taupe brown' I haven't found the perfect lipliner for it yet as I like to get a slightly different shade but the good thing about this lipstick is like Whirl it started as a lipliner. This shade isn't a everyday shade although I did rock it too work but its more of a night out shade or a special occasion and I definalty think its more for a tanned tone as I think it would completley wash you out.
Stone is also a shade which looks different on everybody sometimes its more brown sometimes it more grey, the best thing about this lipstick is the stay factor it really does last all day. I think I topped it but twice and it was only the middle of my mouth the edges were perfect and it kinda looked good more faded in the middle as it gave more of an ombre look.
Since I've cancelled my Mr Blanc subscription I've decided to buy one lipstick a month so I can build up a collection my next one will have to be either Whirl or Velvet Teddy.
P.S I loved my Mr Blanc but my teeth wouldn't go much more whiter!
So thats my top 5 series at the moment let me know if you start any of them!
