I first discovered Mehr last year in London, I was on a girlie shopping trip and one of my best friends tried this lipstick on. I loved the way it looked on her so much that I told her to grab one for me too, but then we got to the till point and it was sold out, so we went to another Mac around the corner, also sold out, then to the Mac in Debenhams – sold out! We even had a look online and it had sold out too, we couldn’t believe it, I blamed those damn Kardashians, Kendall and Kylie who were probably looking all gorgeous and getting papped wearing it at the time.
So as you can imagine this was so stressful, as soon as you know for certain you can’t have it you visualise yourself wearing it there and then and then it ruins your dinner plans and even your night out because you had planned your outfit around this one shade of lipstick, such a disaster – first world problems!
Anyway about 6 weeks later, after constant daily checks, it came back in stock and I have worn it at least once a week ever since.
This is my go to daily lip colour. It’s borderline nude so it’s not too bright for work, its also really pigmented and long lasting. Although it is a matte lipstick it glides on the lips really smoothly and is really good at staying put without smudging like a gloss.
I am quite pale so I have to be careful on what shade of lipstick to opt for, pinks are definitely one of the best suited colours for my skin tone and this dark dusky pink creates a full natural lip which is still strong but perfect for everyday use. Everyone loves the infamous Velvet Teddy shade but Mehr actually suits me more as Velvet Teddy can look a little brown/yellow for my skin.
To summarise this Mac Mehr lipstick is bold without looking too garish, it’s feminine but still sexy and best of all its versatile, I often wear this shade from day to night! I would recommend this colour as a staple shade for the make up bag.
