Mac Mehr review

Hey lovelies, so when I went to London a few weeks back I made a stop in the Mac store in Carnaby ( it's one of my favourite mac stores ever) and I just had to buy something! I often get mine from the airport when my family go on holiday because you save like £4 on a lipstick I believe which really makes a different if you're buying a lot!

At first I was looking for a new red, because I religiously wear mac red in autumn. I managed to drop mine and the lipstick literally ended up like crushed avocado. No jokes. I then decided that I probably have enough red in my collection to look for a different shade! I then started to browse the nude-ish pinks. Nude brown shades don't suit me because I'm ghostly white. I came across a few shades that I liked but nothing jumped out at me.

Mehr is already a shade I own, so when I saw it I didn't consider buying it. I swatched it and moved on but I came back after about ten minutes because for me Mehr is the perfect pink.  I did consider getting Whirl or Velvet Teddy but neither really suited me at all! Mehr is matte shade and  I would recommend getting the matching lip liner because otherwise it does come off really quickly. I have noticed with mac mattes they do this a lot, if you think so to let me know in the comments. 

The colour itself is a lightly toned nude-ish pink, it's very subtle but just enough to tell that you actually have lipstick on. I would compare it to seventeen Looking Buff in a way as it's just pinker. It's a perfect everyday shade and the matte finish works really well with the colour. I have a really pale complexion and I would say this looks a tad darker on me than when it's swatched, it has a similar shade to Lime Crimes Polly.

The packaging is gorgeous, it's the normal mac packaging I don't think I've ever commented on how lovely and sleek it is but I do love the lipstick packaging. The lipstick has mac's signature vanilla scent and applies really well for a matte lipstick. I have already mentioned that without a lip liner the shade can be pretty pants, it would only take one drink to remove most of it. But with a lipliner the durability is so much better ( I find this to be the case with a lot of lighter shades from mac). 

I ended up buying two of this lipstick, one for me and one which I gave away on my twitter account to celebrate reaching 3,000 twitter followers!? Which is crazy! I never thought I'd reach that amount ever. I'd love to know if you have any recommendations for mac shades as I'm always on the look out for new lipsticks to buy and try. Also I'd love to know what you think about mac lipsticks durability!
