MAC Mehr – The Underdog of MAC Lipsticks?

MAC Mehr – The Underdog of MAC Lipsticks?

April 20, 2015

It’s no secret that I am a bit of a lipstick addict but I have never really been a fan of matte as I was always really self-conscious thinking they make my lips look really chapped and dry. I absolutely love how they look, so I have bought a few drugstore matte lipsticks to try but I found that I was always wiping it off straight away as I felt absolutely ridiculous.
Last week I went shopping in London and I had already decided weeks before that I wanted to treat myself to a new MAC lipstick and convinced myself I was going to by Velvet Teddy. I headed to Carnaby Street and asked the confused shop assistant for Velvet Teddy and after a lot of confusion she finally went to find it. While I was waiting I started to swatch other shades on my hand, and with the help of Adele I finally narrowed it down to two lipsticks, Velvet Teddy and one I had never heard of before – Mehr.

I really DIDN’T want to like it, but out of all of the swatches I had done, I was so drawn to it. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the look of Velvet Teddy but I couldn’t resist getting my Maybelline Velvet Beige out of my bag to compare and it was identical, which swayed me even more towards MAC Mehr. I tried it on in store and fell completely in love so quickly made my way to the till to make my cheeky purchase!
I am so in love with this lipstick and it has definitely made me think twice about matte lipsticks. As with every other matte lipstick it is extremely pigmented and long lasting, I only had to reapply it twice the other day and that was a LONG day. As I had never heard of it before I didn’t know what I would think after I had a chance to apply it properly (the pressure to apply your lipstick in a MAC store is unbelievable!) but I am so happy I choose it. Roll over Velvet Teddy, I think MAC Mehr is a Lipstick underdog for sure.

I think I’m in love.

    Ahh this looks amazing! Perfect for spring…I think you might be right about it being an underdog!
