MAC x Bao Bao Wan Lipsticks in Burmese Kiss and Forbidden Sunrise Review & Swatches

Like the beauty powder, when I saw these two lipsticks in Burmese Kiss and Forbidden Sunrise from the MAC x Bao Bao Wan collection I just had to have them. They come in the same velvety brown packaging as the rest of the collection, but have a more noticeable green shift to them that's really pretty. I feel kind of evil for posting about them when they're currently sold out but I just have to.. I apologize in advance, haha.

MAC describes Burmese Kiss as a 'bright, coral pink', and Forbidden Sunrise as a 'creamy orange'. Both are beautiful, bright shades that I can't wait to wear for spring and summer. They were both opaque with one swipe, and though they were a bit firm at first I found that they become creamier as you apply. Both are matte finishes (they're more matte on the lips then in my swatch), which unfortunately cling to dry spots and enhance their appearance so I would definitely use a lip scrub or balm before applying. As for wear, both transfer a bit if you're drinking etc. but they wear well for several hours and also leave stains. If I had to pick a favorite between the two it would probably be Burmese Kiss, but that's because pinky corals are my weakness, haha. Let me know which one you like best, or if you were able to get your hands on anything from the Bao Bao Wan collection!


  1. The colours are so vibrant!!!!! I can't choose a favourite, it's no surprise these are sold out :)
