I love my MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks. I have this little ritual where I buy myself a new lipstick, everytime I finish a new semester with good grades in law school. Because I recently finished my bachelor of laws, I wanted to spoil myself with two (!) new MAC lipsticks. I’m going to review them both, and this time I’m starting with MAC Mehr – a beautiful color which already became my new fave lippie. I honestly don’t know why I don’t hear more people about this lovely shade. Can’t wait to show you the swatches!
Let’s start with the outside first. MAC Cosmetics’ original packaging is always black, sleek and chic. I love how they look on my vanity, especially displayed in those cute lipstick holders. Only annoying thing is I can’t see which lipstick is which, but I’ve already kind of memorized their places, so I don’t struggle with that anymore.

Time for swatches! MAC Cosmetics describes this color as a matte dirty blue pink. I definitely see the blue undertones, but there’s also a bit of warmth in this color. As you can see, MAC Mehr has great, opaque pigmentation. It has a matte finish, but isn’t drying at all. It’s actually one of the softest (if not the softest) matte MAC lipstick I own. Also, I love pairing my lipsticks with a matching lipliner. MAC Mehr lipstick goes perfectly with the MAC Soar lip pencil. Definitely a must have combo!

ON THE LIPS
And this is how the color looks on my lips. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t get MAC Mehr earlier. This color is BEAUTIFUL. It’s a pinkish, mauve-ish color, which will look good on a lot of different skintones. I feel like this is a darker, more daring version of the beloved your-lips-but-better lip colors. It’s still neutral enough to wear with a prominent eye, while still adding a good bit of color to your face. The perfect, not too overpowering lippie if you ask me!
In this photo you can see me wearing MAC Mehr with a bit of MAC Soar lip pencil to clean up the edged and overdraw my lips a bit (love doing that). I think this combination looks SO stunning. I’ve always hear everybody talk about the Kylie Jenner combo, which is MAC Brave and MAC Soar, but this one is even prettier if you ask me. The colors look perfectly together and I love how this color is neutral, mauve-ish, but still fresh.
YAY OR NAY?
Without a doubt, this lipstick is a big fat yay. It’s definitely my new favorite MAC lipstick and I can’t recommend it enough. If you don’t have MAC Mehr lipstick yet, go out and get (yes, even if you’re chilling in your sweats atm), that’s how much I love it. And get MAC Soar lip pencil as well, as it is the perfect combination. Your lips will be on fleek with those two, I promise ya!

Super mooie kleur! En wat maak je mooie foto’s!
Looking good! Al weet ik zeker dat een lichtere kleur bij mij beter zal staan. Maar bij jou staat hij dus echt wel mooi en die krullen staan je ook goed 🙂

Hey there! I’ve been eyeing this colour for a while now and wanted to check how well it suits a fair complexion? I’ve heard that lipsticks with blue undertone work better if you have fair skin and wondered if you found that to be true with this shade of MAC lipstick. Thanks in advance for your reply!
P.S. I’ve been watching your videos for a while now and I love them very much (I study economics, but I’m interested in law and quite like it). It’s obvious you put a lot of work and thought into them so bravo and keep up the good work! 😉
Its really a lipstick that I d like to use at work or at parties to have the natural and smart look. Perfect!
I just been eyeing this color a while a go,and ended to buying it.. I love it!
