Looking for a new lipstick for autumn? Look no further cus MAC have you covered… I mean, when don’t they really?
MAC Mehr has been getting some serious attention this season with bloggers like Lily Pebbles and Vivianna does Makeup raving about its gorgeous plummy tones. What’s great about it is that it’s one of those berries which can be worn comfortably during the day. Often bold lips feel a bit too intense when it’s light outside (especially for work) but this just looks really pretty. The formula is my standard favourite – matte and creamy – and you can trust that this will stay put throughout the day.
When it came to a lip pencil, I was originally looking for Soar – the perfect match – however, every single MAC store I went into informed me it was sold out. That’s the Kylie Jenner effect for you! In the end, one of the makeup artists recommended In Control, which she said was a very similar shade. It has a little bit more of a red tone to it than Soar, but it still goes really well with Mehr. I definitely recommend trying this if, like me, you’re struggling to find the more popular shades.
The trick with a lip pencil is to draw it around the edge of your lips to stop your lipstick from bleeding, but also to colour in your entire lip. This will keep your lipstick in place all night, meaning you won’t have to keep passing on the mince pies at your next Christmas party!
Have any of you guys tried either of these lip products? Would you like to? And what are your favourite MAC lipsticks this season?
