My take on M.A.C Matte Lipstick Mehr:

It comes packed in the regular M.A.C black lipstick tube with a sticker placed at the bottom.It is simple yet sturdy. The only problem I face is that the stickers are not color coded. It would have been convenient for easy spotting in my crazy vanity though.

Color: Mehr is a dirty blue pink in color as described by M.A.C. It appears slight mauv-ish on me, which is ideal for daywear as well as for work. I like how it makes my skin look dewy and fresh. It will flatter fair to medium/tan skin tones but might wash out very dusky beauties because of the blue undertone. Mehr would be great for a lot of ladies who are on a hunt for an MLBB shade.

Texture: The formula is soft and creamy in consistency and glides smoothly with no tugging. Since matte lipsticks tend to cause dryness, I would recommend a lip balm underneath prior application.

Pigmentation: Bang on! A single coat does the job as seen on the swatch below and would cover up pigmented lips like a dream. HAIL M.A.C!

Staying power: It lasted for 5 to 6 hours on me with snacks. It doesn’t bleed,off course, since it is a matte lippy. There is absolutely no flakiness as well.


The good things:

MLBB color

Creamy formula yet matte

Fresh dewy look

Travel friendly

Superb color payoff

Long wearing

No budging

The bad things:

May cause dryness


Rating: 4.5/5

Recommendation: An everyday shade that would flatter a lot of Indian skin tones. Do try it!
