Living in My Vanity - MAC Mehr Lipstick Swatch and Review - Mickey Contractor '11 / Middle Eastern '12

Nov 15, 2012

“Getting MAC Mehr was like online dating experience for me. I saw it online – swatched, reviewed and loved, but I could not get hold of it for a year and 10 months! Finally I had it and was surprised at the color of the bullet – so brown? But now she’s my life (‘she’ because Mehr is a very female name)”

Last year when Mickey Contractor Collection was launched, I missed 2 things badly – Mehr Lipstick and Siahi Fluidline. I have a 1K rule but aren’t both under a K? By the time I reached the store, it was OOS everywhere. For a year and 10 months, I cried for it. It was launched again in the Middle Eastern Lipstick Collection (along with Double Shot, Tabla, Yash Lipsticks) after a year and 9 months and I waited for the additional one month because it was OOS here in Kolkata and I forced boy to get it for me from Delhi. And let’s not discuss here the pain of forcing a guy to buy a lipstick and that too from a MAC store!! (I actually forced him to buy me 4 lipsticks but we will come back to that story some other day maybe) So, after a year and 10 months of wishing for something, I got my MAC Mehr.

MAC described Mehr as a dirty blue pink. As I am never seen Mehr or even swatched it, I was surprised by the bullet color. It looked too brown. But then on lips, it looks rosy pink. It’s completely opaque. If I try using it with two sweeps then the matte texture start working against me and highlight the lip lines.

Repurchase? Thank God that MAC has it as Permanent now. I will get it the rest of my life. I might even name by daughter Mehr (it means 'kindness' in Hindi and that’s what I wish my child to be…..wait…I am just 24 and not even married…*slaps herself*

I just pray to God now that Siahi is also launched – maybe a limited edition but please again … one last time? Please....
