Review: MAC Mehr Lipstick + New Layout!

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.
I’m a layout / design whore, I know. Barely three months since I revamped my blog and I have yet changed its look again — I’d love to hear your thoughts on it! Anyway, I’ve been keeping a list of MAC lipsticks that I want to purchase next (who doesn’t!?). Looking back, however, my love for MAC lipsticks started late. Having dry puckers and being averse to wearing any kind of product on them, even balms — my lips were definitely not lipstick-friendly. It was only during this pregnancy that my sudden interest in the product peaked. My husband and family would call it my food craving (paglilihi in Filipino). Instead of experiencing sudden cravings for food, I would get the feeling of wanting to buy lipstick. Hence, an early indication that The Misty Spawn is a baby girl.   So for the entire span of my pregnancy, dropping by MAC was a habit my husband learned to master whenever we’d go to malls where MAC was present. Each time we entered, I’d always try a shade that’s on my list and see if it suits me or not. Most of the time, I’d end up in distaste because of my dry lips and how the application just looks terrible on me. It was then I realized not a lot of beautifully swatched shades I see online and on others would particularly suit me as well (even if we had similar skintones). That’s why when I try on a certain shade that I believe works for me, I would lose sleep thinking about it. It’s that bad. Check out the jump for my FOTD wearing one of my favest favorite shade that I lost sleep over because it was always sold out in MAC counters here in Manila —MEHR MAC Mehr is described as a dirty, blue pink and is more cool-toned than warm. Surprising how this shade worked on me because I usually can not wear cool-toned colors. I love how it’s an everyday color that can work on many skintones, as evidenced by how it’s always sold out. I would wear it without anything on my face and I look quite polished. It also works great with smokey eyes or a strong blush. It is of Matte formulation, one of my favorites from MAC’s line (my next favorites are Amplified and Cremesheen). But unlike most mattes, it surprisingly goes on creamy and smooth as compared to let’s say, Ruby Woo, which can be very tricky to apply. Mehr however glides on smoothly to the lips (even without lip balm on) but could accentuate lip lines if you use too much of it. What I do though is scrub and exfoliate my lips first, put on lip balm and layer on Mehr after. It stays on my lips for 5 hours max with eating and drinking in between. I love wearing it because despite not touching up, it stays put and doesn’t flake, budge nor dry my lips out. I can totally go on and on about this lipstick more but bottom line is I love it! Already thinking of repurchasing just so I have backup.

Wearing Mac Mehr mac mehr lipstick

In Summary

Pros: 1. Sort of creamy application despite being of matte formulation, but dries to a matte finish after it sets 2. Long-lasting enough as compared to other lipsticks, 5 hours wear with eating & drinking but stains a bit 3. Suits most skintones, especially light – medium 4. Everyday shade! If you’re gonna spend on lipstick, might as well get the one you can abuse on a daily basis right? 5. Could be a MLBB shade for some! For my NC30-35 skin, it’s the perfect rosy pink. Cons: 1. Need to exfoliate and moisturize first for those with dry, flaky lips 2. Could accentuate lip lines if used generously so you have to find the right amount to get the best wear 3. Hard to get a hold of here in Manila! I ordered mine online as I can’t wait longer only to find out when I go back to MAC that it’s sold out again.

Final Thoughts

REPURCHASE… and hoard (kidding)! Like I said, it’s hard for me to find a shade that looks good with my skintone so finding this definitely makes me happy. I like that despite being matte, it could be a double agent working as Amplified Cremesheen. And that it doesn’t dry my lips more than it already is — definitely a keeper!

    I feel you on that. I find it hard to find a color that’s really flattering on me (maybe we have similar undertones). Anyway, I have a few lipsticks and they look “ok” on me but never that really nice flattering and face-brightening except for my really red one, maybelline red revival. But that’s red. I want something more muted but will still brighten up my face. I hope there’s a matte mehr color.

    I feel like this is darkish… I either want a berry lipstick like this or a polish. I have a feeling I’m going to have to settle for a polish for now.

    Love the new layout!

    I love the old layout I do have more happy vibes with that. chos.. me pavibes vibes pa ako 🙂

    Does it stain your cup when you drink?

    Yes its true, the swatches online is different, depende sa natural color ng lips natin and I hate it if I see it looks good sa iba tapos sakin panget.. hehee 🙂

    Wow, I can’t believe how gorgeous the color looks on you! It’s quite amazing that it can last up to 5 hours. I’ve never had a lipstick last so long with food and drink! Thanks for the review! <3

    Your new layout is really nice! The lipstick seems really good and suits you. I like your thoughts on splurging on a lipstick you’re gonna wear everyday, it’s a proper investment!

    I always have dry lips too. And lip balms won’t work either. I found out though that using lip balms and other lip products all the time because it reduces the lips’ natural ability to produce moisture. But I still keep a few balms and use it when my chapping gets worse. This is a really nice shade though! I hope it works just as good as it does on you to me hehe nice review! :))

  33. January 10, 2013 / 3:57 pm

    Using lip balms an lip products all the time isn’t good*

    I accidentally deleted a part of my comment haha really hard to browse through my phone

    I’ve been wanting this shade since I saw this on your blog. I’m torn though if I should get MAC in Cosmo or Mehr? Hehe. Any thoughts? 😉

      If you like Matte then definitely go for Mehr. I own a cosmo and I super love the color but not the finish. It is super shiny on the lips. Hope this helps.

      Hi! Try honey plus sugar then scrub it on your lips. It will remove dead skin cells and by doing it regularly it will also lighten dark lips )
