I have a small carefully curated collection of MAC lipsticks and over Christmas I purchased the latest addition in the form of Mehr. Any fellow fans of blogger Lily Pebbles will have heard her mention Mehr recently as she has been wearing it a lot over the past six months or so. Every time I saw it on her I made a mental note to make it my next make up purchase.


On the MAC site it's described as a dirty blue pink. It's one of their matte finish lipsticks and even though I do find them drying, I'm not as bothered about it since using their Prep + Prime Lip which is a must-have product if you're a matte lip lover. It makes such a difference especially with the MAC matte lipsticks which I find to be the most dry matte lipstick formula I've tried.


It's definitely not as harsh on the lips as Ruby Woo which for some reason seems to be such a hard lipstick to work with (seriously though if you love Ruby Woo, invest in the Prep + Prime Lip, it helps so much!). I wear it over just the primer and it lasts really well so I'd say with a lip liner too it would have amazing staying power.


I love the shade of Mehr, it's a great neutral that looks beautiful worn with minimal make up, or to counteract a stronger eye look. I've been wearing this a lot in work with just my base make up and mascara and it looks so fresh and pretty.

My other face make up is No7 Airbrush Away Foundation, Inglot Gel Liner and the Lorac Pro Palette on my eyes. 

I compared Mehr to another MAC lipstick I have, Plumful, which is slightly deeper and a more sheer Lustre finish but they are very similar in tone. For me, these kinds of shades are much more appealing and flattering than the nineties nudes that are still going strong in the world of make up. If you are a fan of pink-toned understated lipsticks but hate constant reapplication, then I'd definitely recommend checking out Mehr at your nearest MAC counter. I bought mine for €20 in Brown Thomas.

What's your favourite understated lipstick?
