MAC Brave or Mehr?

mac mehr vs brave

Maybe neither? Or perhaps both? To hell with it, both!

I ummed and ahhed about which one to get a few months ago as I knew they were both similar but with different finishes. I went with Brave as I thought a nice satin would be better in the heat rather than a straight up matte. Fast forward 3 weeks and I end up buying Mehr. I have no willpower. Now Mehr I love, it’s one of their more creamy mattes and is comfortable to wear. It has a darker rosy pink tone to it compared to Brave. Brave doesn’t last that long on me for some reason, I would have thought a satin would still have much more staying power but even with a lip pencil underneath (I’ve been loving Boldly Bare and Soar which I think was the combo Zoe from Mammaful Zo mentioned to me) I get about 3 hours max. Not that is off putting as it’s still a gorgeous neutral shade. Mehr just lasts longer. This free delivery on every order at MAC (plus a free sample) is not good for my bank balance! 


MAC brave vs Mehr

If you were only planning on one of these then go for Mehr or both if you are lipstick addict like me….

Do you own either or both?

    I have both, and love them both equally. Brave is my everyday shade, being quite close to my natural lip colour (if a little lighter), and has a lot of sentimental value. But I love Mehr too, I love matte lipsticks and MAC's are so good! I think they're different enough to get away with owning them both. Although I have loads of pinky nudes in my collection haha Laura // Laura Wardrobe

    I'm pleased you liked the combo :) It's a shame Brave isn't as long lasting, I love brave and soar, I now need to buy mehr too, you have enabled me ha ha xx Zoe ♥ MammafulZo
