MAC Matte Lipstick: Mehr: Review/Swatch/FOTD

Sometimes when I’m cracked up I do something stupid… like buying a lipstick or a blush with a blue undertone! But sometimes it does pay off.. like in the case of MAC Mehr.

Generally I stay away cool toned lipsticks,blushers out of a fear that they would look odd against my skintone. And thats why Mehr didn’t catch my attention initially at the MAC store. I went on to try Double Shot and Tabla which looked… errrrr…. horrible on me!! And then finally this pink thing caught my attention and came home with me! πŸ˜‰
MAC Mehr is a cool toned pink and it has a slight blue undertone. It is a universally flattering color and adapts to every skintone. It may look darker on fair skintones and a little lighter on darker skintones but nevertheless it is a beautiful everyday wear pink.

Price: 990 INR for 3g

Thankfully MAC has been kind enough to make this lipstick a part of the permanent collection. The lipstick has a matte finish. I find it very creamy to apply but it gives a matte finish on the lips and it does settle into the fines if lips are chapped. So a lipbalm is a must before applying Mehr for those with dry chapped lips.

One swipe of the lipstick gives an opaque finish. If you have pigmented lips, you might need two at the most! The first time I tried it at the store I left it on since it looked very pretty but somehow it disappeared in less than 2 hours. I’ve worn this 4-5 times after that day and I can safely say it has lasted on me for about 5-6 hours and yes I did eat, drink water and did everything necessary for survival in those 6 hours πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Here’s a picture of how Mehr looks on me. This picture was taken after work so kindly excuse the smudged kohl!! πŸ˜€ And oh yes the boil near my right brow.. ummm… lets get on with the rest of the review πŸ˜‰
Final Word: Overall I love this lipstick. And till now I haven’t come across any lipstickΒ from MAC thatΒ I don’t like . The formulation, color, texture of this lipstick is spot on and if youΒ wantΒ a pink lipstick for everyday wear, look no further!

What is your opinion on Mehr? Any dupes for this one?Β

  • the shade looks gorgeous on u.. but i think it may look washed out on me…. πŸ™

    • I dont think it will.. I’m NC 37.. but badly tanned at the moment.. if it suits me it would def suit you πŸ™‚ Do try it out at the store coz even I thought this was going to wash me out completely..

    • yep i ll surely check this out. and do u think it looks similar to colorbar naked pink lip stick from the velvet matte range… ?? cos it looks similar πŸ™‚

    • I don’t have COlorbar naked pink but going by the swatches I saw online, NP looks like it has a warm undertone.. it seems like it has brown in it.. this one is completely different πŸ™‚

    • okie.. thanks Deeps.. ill check this shade then..

    • lol nope you are not at all silly :* you know, infact im kind of worried about how ill smile without showing my teeth in all the photos which are to be taken during my wedding πŸ˜€ lol πŸ˜€

  • Is it close to Cosmo?

    • mehr is lighter and has less pink in it.. and mehr has a slight blue undertone whereas cosmo has a little brown in it which makes it look warm.. will do a detailed post comparing the two soon πŸ™‚

  • aha.. looks lovely on u deepika… πŸ™‚

    • thank you Nids <3 πŸ™‚

  • it seems close to colorbar demure..but this is a bit more cool toned i think..loved the swatch ! <3

    • i guess.. unfortunately i have only two colorbar lipsticks so really cant tel lyou the exact difference.. but from what i saw online demure seems to be a very warm pink.. πŸ˜€

  • Looks so natural…Its on my next buy list..
