The $2 Velvet Teddy Dupe



You know how the world has gone cray cray for MAC’s Velvet Teddy – aka THE KYLIE JENNER LIPSTICK (or so it’s rumoured) hence the reason it’s been sold out for months. Well call off the search! Forget Velvet Teddy... who needs it when there’s a $2 dupe.  

Wet n Wild Bare it All 902C is a brown toned nudey pink with a matte finish. On me, it’s similar to my natural lip shade but browner. I don’t have Velvet Teddy to show you a comparison (like I said it’s sold out everywhere) but check out the swatches online – they’re almost identical.

I am beyond blown away by the formula of these cheaply priced lippies. Seriously I can’t believe they’re only $2. It’s completely opaque and the colour you see is the colour you get. It’s one of the few nudes that doesn’t need a lip liner and applies perfectly straight from the bullet (or tube in this case). Despite being a matte lipstick is spreads easily with a buttery texture. It’s remains soft and buttery on the lips and doesn’t set or dry like most matte lipsticks. I actually prefer this to the MAC matte formula, which really drags and dries my lips. It has fantastic staying powder too. I’m usually a cremesheen girl so it lasts loads longer than those, but perhaps not as long as a true, retro matte – say around 4 hours.

I cannot sing its praises enough. If I lived in the US and had access to Wet n Wild, I doubt I’d buy any other lipstick brand. I tracked down Wet n Wild Bare it All on Amazon for £2.27 +£2.83 shipping, delivery took around a week. At £5, it’s still a complete steal. I’m in love with this lipstick and have barely picked up another since it arrived! 

Velvet Teddy, you’re off the Wish List!

  1. I love posts about MAC dupes! I've never tried Wet & Wild before, I'll definitely be hunting down this product. I can't get to a MAC counter and I think it's a bit risky buying a £15 lippy online without seeing first hand so posts like this are perfect for me :)

    1. Hi Roxy. I totally agree! Velvet Teddy came back into stock online at some point and I was going to buy it but then I stopped myself because I hadn't tried it on in store... what a waste that would have been x

  2. Great post! That looks like a pretty good dupe and at $2 its definitely one I'll be snapping up. I recently found a good one for MAC's Brave, nothing better than finding a dupe at a fraction of the price! :) x

  5. Thank you for posting this!! So helpful <3
    I LOVE Wet n Wild lip products. They are matte but not over drying as some of the mac lipsticks, and they leave your lips moisturized which is a big plus!! I know Jordana has some great mac dupes.
    I actually have a whole post about dupes for high end lipsticks such as Lime Crime and Mac. Here is a link in case you want to check it out :)
