Hello Beautiful Ladies,
How are you all? The temperature in Delhi has risen to about 45 degrees and it becomes really difficult to manage makeup in such a hot weather. I don’t like applying foundations in such hot days. I don’t actually like touching up my face much and the same applies for my lip color too. So, today I will be talking about another shade from my MAC collection that does not require any touchups and is perfect for those days in which you don’t like to apply makeup. The shade I have today is called Mehr and this is one of my favorite shades from MAC.
Product quantity: 3g
INR 1450 (MAC have raised their prices, the time I bought this lipstick it was priced at Rs 990, then they raised it to Rs 1250 and now MAC lipsticks costs Rs 1500). Hopefully, the prices have not been raised further. (BUY HERE)
My take on MAC Lipstick Mehr:
Packaging: Like the traditional MAC lipstick packaging this too, comes in a black tube with a dome-shaped lid. The packaging is completely opaque and the color name is written on a label pasted on the base of the lipstick. The packaging of the lipstick is cute and sturdy but the only problem is that they have to be recognized by name and for that, the lipsticks have to be stored inverted. This actually becomes a little more difficult due to the dome-shaped lid.
Mehr seems to be a shade of pinky brown when seen in the bullet but when applied onto the lips it actually is a beautiful mauvy pink. The shade is completely free of shimmers and is perfect for everyday use. The color is highly pigmented and a single swipe of the color can give opaque mauvy lips. The lipstick has a matte formulation which might make the lipstick a bit drying. But thankfully it is not too drying and a lip balm underneath the color can make it work perfectly. The lipstick is completely non-sticky and feels light on the lips.
Being a matte formula, the staying power of the shade is amazing. The lipstick stays easily for more than 6 hours and it can even withstand a meal. Though a full meal can reduce the intensity of the color, but, the color still remains there. It is not buttery smooth to apply but is smooth enough to make it convenient to use.
Fragrance: All the MAC lipsticks have a nice vanilla fragrance to them and I love that fragrance. For the girls who does not like to have fragrance in their lipsticks need not worry as the fragrance fades away when the lipstick is actually applied on the lips.
Pros of MAC Lipstick Mehr:
- Sturdy Packaging
- Beautiful everyday color
- Matte formula which helps the lipstick to stay for long hours and helps it to withstand a meal
- Nicely Pigmented
- Does not feel heavy
- No shimmers
- Nice vanilla fragrance
- Non-transferrable (might transfer initially but once it sets it is non transferable)
Cons of MAC Lipstick Mehr:
- Difficult to recognize the desired color from a bunch of lipsticks due to all black packaging
- Difficult to store the lipsticks upside down due to their dome shaped lids,
- Pricy (especially now when MAC has raised their price so much)
- The color might be a bit drying due to its matte formulation
Would I buy this product again?
Definitely, I loved the shade and I loved the way it looked on me J
Do I recommend this?
Yes! It’s a beautiful everyday color.
