MAC MEHR LIPSTICK: REVIEW



I am usually not the person who jumps at every new Beauty Trend.But every now and then, there shall be a trend which shall tug at your heartstrings. And You give in. I know 2015 was all bout Kylie lips when it came to lip trends, but what tugged at my heartstrings was clearly MAC MEHR lipstick. Beauty Gurus and Beauty Editors across North America and Europe could not stop raving about this lipstick. I had seen swatches of it in some videos and read about in so many articles, that i would have probably recognised someone wearing it, even in a crowded space. As luck would have it, every time I went to a MAC Pro store or a MAC counter, it was sold out. The urge to own it, became even more stronger. I had almost given up the thought of having it, when I finally got it. The lady at the MAC counter in Nordstrom informed me that they had received a shipment of 25 tubes of the lipstick ,and 15 were already sold.

MAC is known for its collections which are created by its global artists. Not always are they part of the regular collection. MAC MEHR is one such color. It was originally launched in 2011 as a part of the Bollywood Collection designed by MAC Global Artist Mickey Contractor. For those of you, who don't know him, Mickey Contractor is one of the most famous Make Up Artists of Bollywood. He has been a part of MAC ever since MAC launched in India. I love Bollywood and when I came to know this fact, my excitement just heightened a bit.




MAC MEHR retails at $17 without taxes in North America. As its a part of the regular collection, it comes in the customary black bullet with silver detailing. MEHR is a MATTE finish lipstick. But its not Retro Matte like Ruby Woo. Despite being Matte, Mehr, is not drying on the lips and does not drag on the lips . Neither does it flake off, if you are wearing for long. It makes my lips look plump and flawless. The color pay off is brilliant and I loved how creamy it was, despite its finish.

Coming to the color, MAC decribes it as Dirty Blue Pink. Yes, my love story with blue toned lipsticks continue. If I had to describe the color in my own words, I feel its a beautiful shade of brownish mauvy pink. Its a statement pink lip, and not in the terms of Barbie Pink, I tell you.
Its a cool toned pink which pairs very well with warm undertones like mine. I am a C2 in MAC Face and Body or a NC 20. When you wear it, you are bound to be asked, what do you have on your lips. Happened to me every timeThe staying power of the color is pretty good . I have been currently ODing on it. So I have put it to test under extreme weather, read single digit F temps, in the Midwest. The color has performed well every time. Its such a grougeous shade of pink, which you can easily take from day to night. It pairs very well with MAC Lip Pencil in SOAR.

I am aware that some Beauty Gurus have called Rimmel Kate Moss 104 as being a drug store dupe of MAC Mehr. I own both the lipsticks, so I wanted to pint out that they are in fact not dupes. Rimmel Kate Moss is more neon pinkish and Mehr is more mauvy.



If I ever wanted to venture down the road of Kylie's lip trend, this would be what I would be sporting. I am definitely going to repurchase it when it runs out. A new must have in my beauty stash for sure.
