I own a lot of lipsticks, but the one brand I have the most from is MAC because they’re not too expensive and good quality plus Back to MAC, girl.. it adds up.

MAC Mehr vs Twig

Mehr is a brown toned rose shade that has a matte finish, but it’s not dry on the lips because it’s pretty creamy, and glides on smoothly.

Twig is a pink toned brown with a satin finish so it has a slight sheen, but I wouldn’t say it’s glossy. It’s not drying on the lips and because of the creamy texture it glides on smoothly.

Both shades are pigmented, opaque, and that perfect 90s “Kylie” lip, which is still really popular.

The Verdict |

If you prefer something more pink, then I would suggest Mehr, while Twig will be better for you if you prefer something more brown. If you’re not used to matte lips, I would still suggest Mehr because it’s not drying and feels creamy on the lips.

Out of the two, my personal favorite is Mehr. I prefer lipsticks that have more pink to them, and I love that it’s matte, but not drying.

  • I have Mehr and I never picked up Twig cause I always thought they look too similar to have both. I love Mehr and you’re right, it’s matte but still so comfortable to wear.

    • They’re definitely very very similar! I wish I had picked up Mehr first. Had I picked it up first, I probably wouldn’t have picked up Twig.

  • Love the look of Mehr!

  • I have twig but not mehr, they look kind of similar but the shade is so pretty.

    Perfect Shade of Mauve

    • They’re very similar! I like Twig, but I do prefer Mehr if I had to pick one out of the two.

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    I love the look of Twig! I’m not really into matte lippies so I’d probably give Mehr a miss, but Twig seems lovely! I adore the shade and I like that it offers a sheen finish that’s also hydrating. :) You really can’t go wrong with MAC lipsticks! Thanks for sharing this fab review, hun. x x


    • Thanks for reading :). I’m really getting into more satin/sheen finished lipsticks and Twig is a great one!

  • Dom

    They look so similar! Thank you for always doing comparisons, they really help! Xo Dom

    • Aww thank you, Dom! I’m glad they’re helpful. Thanks for reading :)

  • I actually just got Mehr and I loved it! I did swatch it before and overlooked it, but now I’m more into muted pinky colors that show up on my lips. Twig was too light on me.


    • I picked this up when I became more into muted pink lipsticks as well :). It’s gorgeous!

  • Both shades are just gorgeous, but definitely think I would opt for Mehr as I love the pinky tone to it a bit more x

    Beauty with charm

  • Both shades are gorgeous and although I hate drying lipsticks, I prefer the look of Twig. I would have to swatch both in store and see how they look against my skintone. Great comparison! xx

  • Samileen

    I love Mehr, it’s my go to when ever I’m in a rush. It’s perfect despite being a matt formula it’s quite comfortable on the lips.

  • I want Mehr so bad! It looks so lovely! I have a MAC gift card burning a hole in my purse so I think today may be the day I treat myself! x

  • They are so similar, I think I’m going to have to swatch them both in store and see which one I prefer! They are both beautiful! xo

  • The Sunday Mode

    I was actually in store the other day and I was tossing up whether to get Mehr or Twig, except I couldn’t find Twig to swatch! I think Mehr might be a little too pink for me, I definitely need to track down Twig to properly suss it out…

    • Hopefully you can track it down and swatch it! Twig is so beautiful and a staple in my collection for sure :)
