I think this is a lovely colour, but I don't find it matte at all, I know a lot of people like this because it's not as drying but I wanted a matte lipstick and this doesn't feel matte. I read it had around 5 hours staying power, it lasts about an hour if that on me.
There's not many MAC products I don't like or want to repurchase but I won't be repurchasing this, really really lovely colour though.
Edit: I have actually been using this everyday for college and out and about so it is growing on me even if it doesn't feel very matte to me, I just love the colour so much :D I'm also going to try a lip primer with this and see if it stays on longer and will report back.
UPDATE: I say this with a heavy heart as I adore MAC's products and doubt I'll find replacements for many but I cannot repurchase their products now that they are not cruelty free due to supplying China. :( I cannot support cruelty for my own vanity.
I like this lipstick. I am really pale and this lipstick still works and does not wash me out. It is truly Matte, no shiny nonsense. Perfectly appropriate for work. I can wear this all day without it trying out my lips. The only thing I do not like about the product is that it settles deep into your lip lines highlighting every line so if you have a lot of lip lines maybe this lipstick is not for you. This lipstick goes on creamy and smooth. I have to put on two coats to get the desired intensity I want. Overall this is a beautiful lipstick that lasts long and is a truly non-drying Matte lipstick. Will repurchase!
omg best lipstick ever! I've been looking for a shade like this for ages. I'm nc35, and have about 12 mac lipsticks but this is by far my favourite! I usually find matte lipsticks too drying but this one is lovely on the lips. The colour is a beautiful but natural pink shade, its definitely a 'your lips but better' shade for medium skin tones. love this and will definitely repurchase when it runs out!
One of my absolute favorite lipsticks of all time. Matte yet comfortable to wear, creamy, and very pigmented. A beautiful shade of dusty pink/mauve, quite modern. Longlasting. This is definitely one of my go-to lipsticks, I use it on a regular basis! So glad MAC has made it permanent!
UPDATE 8/30/13: Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in #104 is an EXACT DUPE of Mehr!!!!!!!!!!!!! To compare I put Mehr on my top lip and #104 on the bottom and couldn't tell the difference between the two! Only actual differences are the price, scent (Rimmel is scented with watermelon), and formula (Rimmel has more slip).
UPDATE 2/23/14: Another exact dupe, in liquid lipstick form, is Stila Patina.
among all the lipsticks that I own, THIS is my color and the one I hoard every chance I get. I use this several times a week and that is a lot for me. I can only say this color is a perfect balance of elegant pink, a touch of brown, a pinch of red, and gives me the sexxy mouth which I love without being over the top. Much better than MLBB -- it's MLBVMB... very much better.
if it's becoming perm as the prior review mentions, I am all set. But my paranoia about it disappearing again is always there, so I will probably still hoard.
I love this color. Its the perfect "my lips but better" color. I am an NC20 and I love to wear this color with champagne smoky eyes or any dark eye makeup. I don't like blanking out my lips with very nude colors and this is great to wear with a strong eye without overwhelming the face. I heard MAC is making this permanent and I hope so, its a great color!
As a very pale person with dark hair I struggle to find nude shades which don't make me look like the undead. I originally went to the local MAC counter thinking I'd go for Hue or Velvet Teddy, but when testing them both seemed either not my favourite texture (matte) or too pale or yellow for my skin tone. I came across Mehr just perusing the lipsticks and loved the browny pink shade so much I instantly went for it instead.
I didn't regret it! It's not a nude, but gives a lovely mauve pink shade to my lips which really suits my skin tone and brings out the colour in my cheeks. It's easy enough to wear during daytime with some lip balm or on a night time with a dramatic eye. Great all rounder!
Mehr is a matte "dirty"-toned, medium pink that is a darker MLBB color. I don't find it noticeably drying on my lips, but it doesn't seem to feel quite as nice as some of the other recent mattes that MAC has come out with. I originally passed on this in favor of Yash when they were introduced as limited edition with the Mickey Contractor collection, but I later found myself really wanting Mehr, and finally got it when it became part of the permanent collection. Overall, Mehr is a nice lipstick that is a great addition to MAC's permanent line-up, and worth it at this price point, but I think I would have been disappointed if I had paid over-retail for it, or had I traded another highly-sought-after lipstick for it.
I think this is close to a universally flattering shade, if that is actually possible. I loved it when it was promoted with the Mickey Contractor collection and was sad I did not have backups. Luckily, MAC seems to have added this to their permanent line. If you liked Gem of Roses with the Semi-Precious collection, this one is similar but a bit darker and matte. I love how MAC has reformulated their mattes as well. This one is not at all drying to me, like say for instance Ruby Woo. This actually made my lips look smoother and more moisturized. Lasted all day as well. Highly recommend!
I didn't know MAC was repromoting this but I saw it on the colors drop down list and ordered one the other day, well it arrived yesterday and I have been wearing it ever since. I'm pale with pale lips and on me this leans a cooler, plumy midtone dusty pink. It's very versatile and I love MAC's matte formula. Win!
