Pink and coral in a super luxe tube . . . that’s MAC’s Burmese Kiss from their latest Bao Bao Wan collection. It’s one of the four lipsticks released with this collection.
MAC describes this lippie as a “bright coral pink with a matte finish”. Bright and beautiful, this lipstick is and it’s one of the boldest lippies I own. I love it!!!!
Unlike traditional MAC matte lipsticks, which can be very drying and pull on the lips on application, this guy is a smooth operator.
It has velvety consistency (to match the velvet-like texture of the outer part of the tube?).
This lipstick is so opaque that it leaves a stain on the lips as it fades through the day. The finish is not as matte as I thought it would be, it looks like more satin for most of the wear time. It feels a bit dry on the lips as time goes on, but it’s still comfortable and that’s huge coming from someone who battles chronic dry lips. As with all matte lipsticks, make sure to exfoliate to get the smoothest possible finish.
The packaging sold me, the duo chrome teal and brown is beautiful. The Bao Bao Wan logo is written in a burnished copper adding to the luxury look of the lipstick. Even the box has the same iridescence. The metal parts are also copper and not the regular silver. It’s a MAC collectors dream or a great lipstick to start a collection.
It gets huge thumbs up from me and anyone can rock this shade, if they dare . . .
Where to buy: www.maccosmetics.co.za or MAC FFS. These guys are selling fast so get it while they are still available.
I would like to find a dupe, for now, I just want to pucker up . . .
Have you bought any of the Bao Bao Wan lipsticks? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it
