A Quick Look at the MAC Bao Bao Wan Collection Beauty Powder and Lipsticks [VIDEO]

Published in: Face, Lips, MAC Makeup, Video

If this Forbidden Sunrise Lipstick were actually forbidden…I’d break that rule. I mean look at it! — bright orange. WOW.


It’s like the color that your tongue turns after you’ve eaten some obnoxiously orange candy, and yes, I like it.

Just a quick look at the new MAC Bao Bao Wan collection Beauty Powder and Lipsticks (available now online and in stores March 5 – April 2, 2015). If you’ve ever wished that you could stand under a deluge of glitter, the Beauty Powder — you wants it.

As always, thank you for watching. I’ll be posting more pics and swatches soon.

    I love the look of Lavender Jade, but it’s all sold out on the UK site and won’t be coming to my local store. Oh well, I think (I hope) there are some interesting lavender-ish colours coming along in the next couple of months.

    I’m sure you’ve been asked this about a billion times before, but which brush are you using for highlighter? I use the 159, but this brush looked fantastic.

    Thanks for the video. x

      Hi Erinaceina,

      In this video I’m using the MAC 165, which unfortunately is discontinued. Real Techniques has a similar one called the Contour Brush; I got it in the Core Collection pack.

      If I’m not using either of those I sometimes use a fan brush (Louise Young LY20) or a tapered blending brush like the MAC 224.

      HTH! Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Hi Julia,

      Happy Thursday!

    I could watch your videos all day!

    I really wanted the Burmese Kiss lipstick but, of course, it sold out before I even thought twice about getting it.

    Very cute video, Karen! I usually don’t have the patient for videos, but this was adorable. I love the Forbidden Sunrise lippie. I love a true orange! Not sure whether it’s too much orange for this redhead, but you never know!
