I feel like I haven’t done a review on a MAC lipstick in forever. That may well be because, well, I hadn’t bought a new one for a few months. For me that’s unusual to say the least. Normally I find myself accidentally getting to St Pancreas to meet a friend early and accidentally leaving the MAC store with my purse a little lighter. All accidentally of course. However, with all manner of new releases and discovering new brands, my love affair with MAC fizzled out a little. While sorting my collection the other week, I realised I had enough empty products to do a “Back To Mac” swap. So I hopped down to my nearest store and traded them in for a Mehr lipstick.
MAC Mehr Lipstick
Mehr is described as a dirty blue pink. Personally, as I found Velvet Teddy a little too brown for my skin town, I’ve really enjoyed using Mehr as an everyday nude colour. For me, I’ve really enjoyed this “your lips but better” colour for creating all manner of day time looks. I only wish I’d picked it up earlier in the year as for me, it is more of a Spring / Summer shade and we’re rapidly heading towards Autumn / Winter. However, with the recent good weather, it has got quite a lot of use.
As with all the MAC matte finish lipsticks that I’ve tried, Mehr packs a punch from the first swipe. I’ve personally been wearing this with either ColourPop’s Fetch lip pencil, or MAC’s Soar. However, this colour doesn’t really need the lip pencil underneath, I personally prefer wearing it. It’s just part of my makeup routine to apply it.
Although some may find the formula a little drying, as I’ve worn a lot of liquid to matte finishes lately, I’ve found this really comfortable to wear in comparison to say, my ColourPop matte collection. Despite this, I’ve still managed to get a good 4 hours wear out of this. & that’s with plenty of coffee consumed.. All in all a winner for me on that front.
