I had two Mac lipsticks in my rotation: Faux and Brave. Some say they look the same but Brave is darker with a bit more purple in it. Yes, it is darker! They are different. Yes they are!

Anyway, I wanted something a little darker than Brave but in the same color family because I am boring and do not like adventure when it comes to makeup. I have fair skin with slightly cool undertones. The warmest I can go is neutral pinks, anything else and I just look like a mess, a dirty mess to be precise.

I discovered Mehr. Mehr is a cool toned, darker rose with a bit of plum in it. On me it looks dark (but my definition of dark is more of a lightweight definition of dark), and I wear C1 in Face and Body. On others with darker skin it might look like a MLBB shade. This is just the most perfect shade that is sophisticated while also lending a soft, kinda romantic vibe as well. It is matte, and while not necessarily drying, I prefer to top it with Dior Addict Lip Glow in the pink shade. Works great with neutral brown or cool brown eye looks, as well as purple or dusty rose. Probably other eye looks as well but I don't veer out of my comfort zone. I only pair this with Dior Blush in Lucky Pink, or Bobbi Brown Desert Rose, due to my cowardly attitude about makeup.
So yeah, this one is great. It is definitely the most "daring" of my lipsticks, but it is a beauty and now I feel like I own the perfect trifecta of Mac's dusty rose type colors.

I have tried many matte lipsticks. I was a little hesitate but I bought a mini. LOVE IT! For a matte formula it is creamy and non drying. Such a gorgeous plummy reddish natural look with great pigment. Have had many compliments. Lasts too. I just put a swipe of my Laura Mercier setting powder on my lips, a liner and the lipstick. LOVE!

Big fan of this lipstick.

I don't like pink lipsticks. Purple-toned lipsticks look straight-up BAD on my light olive skintone, I don't know why - but Mac Mehr looks good on me! It's rose without being too pink, and it's cool-toned without being purple - just on the right side of blue. And it's not too bold to be unwearable for daytime or the office.

As with all matte lipsticks, you should exfoliate and moisturise beforehand, or it will highlight the dry bits of your lips - that said, it's still rather smooth and flattering, even if you have dry lips (like me).

Staying power is quite good, especially if you apply-blot-apply-blot. Lasts through drinks and meals.

The smell is the classic Mac vanilla: mild, pleasing if somewhat saccharine, and you can't smell it once you apply the lipstick.

I am obsessed with Mehr lipstick. It is a muted, medium rose shade which on myself looks to be a very natural, my lips but better shade. It has a matte finish, though does not dry out the lips. It doesn’t sink into lip lines, bleed or feel uncomfortable to wear. It has great staying power, lasting through meals without smudging. It applies easily on the lips from the bullet, with enough slip to prevent needing to drag the lip area. It is a very flattering shade on my NC15 skin, I always get compliments when I wear this one. It is definitely one of my favourite shades to wear, it is very versatile and can be worn dressed up or in a very casual manner. I recommend this to those who want to add some colour to their face, and look like an enhanced version of themselves. This is a must have lipstick for me!

This is a rose pink matte lipstick that is almost universally flattering. I use it with Soar lip liner. As with most of the MAC mattes, they can be drying after 3 or 4 applications. The colour pay off is great and lasts for a long time, though. It's a great natural, with or without gloss over it. I prefer Modesty, since it's more moisturizing and a little shiny.

This shade looks beautiful on so many skin tones. On my light olive skin (C2), this shows up as a deep mauve blue- pink. It is so rich and the matte finish makes it look even more intense and beautiful. The formula is so comfortable for me, and the staying power is so fantastic. I love wearing this with all sorts of eye and cheek looks, but my favorites are a nude clean eye or a deep grey smokey eye, they both give off different looks with this shade but look equally beautiful. For cheeks, I usually stick with a cool light pink, which matches the undertones of this.

I recently bought Mehr lipstick and am quite liking it. Its more pinkier than Twig and a good everyday wear shade.

I'm NC25, with neural to slightly warm undertone, living in Singapore and all its tropical humidity!

This has been a raved-about product for so long! I see it on Youtube, Pinterest, blogs etc. SO, I had to try it right? I went to Mac for a makeup workshop recently and had the opportunity to test it on my lips. The colour is a cool-toned dusty rose mauve on my lips and I would say it lends a touch of sophistication to the whole makeup look. As it's a matte formula, it can get a little drying on the lips so you might want to prep your lips with some lip balm or protector first. I only need to reapply this 1-2 a day depending on how long my day is. The colour pay off is great, and lasting power is there. Overall, quite happy with this! I love the packaging of MAC lipsticks, the cap is secure and the black bullet casing is sleek and convenient for travel.

I'm not giving this 5 lippies because this lipstick does not work well with a wide range of blush colours. I have tried it with MAC Melba, Pinch O Peach, Love Cloud and somehow the overall colouring looks off. So I only wear this lipstick with MAC Peony Petal blush as it's also a cool-toned pink.

I am over 60 and if you are older, the MLBB colors are most flattering (not to say I don't wear muted red Viva Glam I for glamour and I'm toying with the Ruby Woo idea, but mostly, it's nude pinks.)

If you get washed out by nude pinks or want a bit more color, Mehr is very good. It's a matte finish nude rose if you are darker or a darker shade of MLBB or...you could say, good for pigmented lips. It goes on full coverage but smoothly: I like the Matte formula better than the sheer, greasy formulas or the frosts, which are gritty.

Mehr is now permanent. Dupes incllude Rimmel London Kate Moss #104.

Similar Mac colors: Cosmo (warmer) Twig (warmer, browner.) If you are very warm or golden in tone, you may do better with Cosmo or Twig.

I paired it with Whirl lip pencil and Dervish works as well. If it's a bit drying to you, put a touch of balm underneath and you can add any lipgloss on top to bring up a bit of shine.

This is a great staple color and wearable across many skin shades. I am NW25 for reference (neutral but cool overtones. I tint my hair with violet ash tones to make sure I am not clashing with warm in the hair, so I'm definitely on the cool spectrum.)

I love this color! And the wear is good. Leaves a pretty stain. I pair it with soar but a lighter more pink liner is pretty too. I swear only 3 lip colors look good on me and this is one of them. It reminds me of Stuka liquid lipstick in patina. This will always be in my makeup bag.
