Here’s a super duper quick review of the lipstick I’ve been loving the most recently, Mehr. It’s a matte rosy mauve color and it’s my go-to lipstick for when I’m not quite sure what to wear.
I hauled and swatched it previously, but I’ve never written up a proper review. Here’s what it looks like on the tube:
According to this website, “Mehr means promise, contract, and relationship between two or more people both in Sanskrit and Avestan languages. In modern Persian, Mehr also means love, friendship, reconciliation and promise. Upon such premises, and within the Iranian culture, Mehr is the antidote of lies and liars. You cannot expect a liar to keep her/his promises and whoever remains faithful to her/his promise has certainly chosen the path of rightfulness.”
It was originally released in the Mickey Contractor collection in 2011 as a limited edition shade. It was repromoted in 2012 and is now a permanent shade, if I’m not mistaken. Mehr is described as a “dirty blue pink.”
Here it is on my face:
I rather enjoy the formula, never mind that it is a matte. Seeing a shine-free solid color glide onto my lips with ease is always such a small delight, and I’ve mentioned that before already.
As it is a matte, Mehr is quite long-wearing, which makes me love it all the more. If you’re looking for something like this color, I urge you to give Mehr a try. I truly enjoy having this as part of my collection, and I love having another option to just thoughtlessly grab when I can’t seem to think of a color to wear. 🙂
