THIS is the purple lipstick I have been waiting all…
With so many MAC collections coming out right now, it’s hard to decide what to get. My rule is lipstick first, everything else if you can afford it. I may have skipped the Cinderella release (and man, was that tough), but I could not resist these pretty lipsticks from the MAC Bao Bao Wan collection: Lavender Jade and Burmese Kiss.
First, let’s talk about this spectacular packaging. MAC went all out on this one, custom evern down to the box. The tube is a duochrome like finish that has sort of a frosted glass feel to it. The metal parts are copper and not the regular silver. Even the box has a different look.
I’ve heard the shade is close to Toxic Tale (most recently released in the Red, Red, Red collection) but since I don’t own it, I found the closest shade I had which was a Revlon Matte Balm crayon. And even then it’s not nearly close.
Also on my face:
MAC Navy x9 Shadow Palette (review to come)
Face Atelier Ultra Foundation in Porcelain
Anastasia Brow Pencil Medium Brown
MAC Dirty Blonde Fluidline for Brows
Benefit Roller Lash mascara
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush
YSL Touche Eclat Shade 2
The MAC Bao Bao Wan collection is available online and at select stores. I was sad to discover this is NOT at MAC Counters within The Bay in Canada.
