MAC Mehr and In Control

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?

Check back in this weekend for a new post. In the meantime, head over to my Bloglovin’, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest for more beauty and lifestyle updates 🙂

  1. This has shot straight to the top of my lipstick wishlist! I love a berry colour for Autumn – I tend to stick to Plumful or Craving but this look fabulous on you.

  2. I love Mehr! It’s such a pretty shade, however I feel like the matte formula isn’t the easiest to wear in the winter when my lips are drier! Brave is quite similar to mehr but its a touch lighter and it’s a satin formula so it’s a good alternative to avoid the flaky lips aspect! I need to try some MAC lip pencils soon though! xx

    1. That is true the matte formulas can be a bit drying. I’ll have to try one of the satin formulas as I don’t think I have before 🙂 I definitely recommend the lip pencils. I actually prefer just wearing them by themselves some days! Thanks for reading lovely xxx
