Today I'm going to share with you a wonderful lip color that had me craving for it for a long long time. The MAC Matte Lipstick in MEHR was originally released as a part of MAC's Mickey Contractor Collection in 2010 which is when I was a MAC Virgin and didn't know much about the brand or its Limited Edition stuff.
I was once searching for neutral pinks from MAC and came across swatches and reviews of MEHR , and I so regretted missing out on it. MAC recently relaunched this particular lipstick as a part of their permanent collection (and they named the collection as Middle Eastern Lipsticks or as MAC SA's say Indian Lipsticks Collection) and I grabbed it with both hands pretty soon after that.
MAC Mehr (INR 990/3 g) is a medium dirty blue pink shade and is a matte finish lipstick. Although its a "Dirty Pink" shade, because of the blue tones ,instead of yellow, it does not make my skin look sallow. It has the MAC signature Vanilla Fragrance. The lipstick is soft in texture and applied opaque in a single coat (I still put two!!) . The thing with this lipstick is if you apply too much of it, it accentuates the lip lines which may look terrible, so you have to be careful with that.
The lipstick has a wear time of about 5 hours (a little less when topped with a gloss)on me and does not flake or become patchy. The formula of this is slightly different from the other mattes I have from MAC, just a tad drier, but not really dry. On my NC 42 skin, it looks best when topped with a gloss(which takes care of the drying part as well!!), and is my perfect companion for a true dark smokey eye look. I must mention here that without dark eyes, it may look a bit pale for some complexions. That you'll have to figure out for yourself when you try this.
If you are looking for a neutral pink from MAC, this one is a must try , though I would have preferred it to be a bit creamier.
Overall, a great shade across all skin tones and a must have neutral shade.
Have a great day everyone!!!
