FOTD: Bold Orange lips using MAC Bao Bao Wan LE collection

Hello sweeties! How are you? As I've promised I have a makeup look to share with you using my picks from the MAC Bao Bao Wan Collection. I am seriously loving the lipstick and the highlighter!

During the month of March the MAC collection by Bao Bao Wan was released and I managed to get three items. The nail polish "Imperial Green" I have already shown you, the matte lipstick in the shade "Forbbiden sunrise", and the shimmery face powder "Summer Opal".

These are the swatches of the powder and the lipstick:


And here it is how it looks on me:


For this look I have used:

- NYX HD wand concealer in 04Beige
- Chanel Les 4 Ombres 38 Premier Régard
- NYX eye & eyebrow pencil in brown
- NYX eyebrow powder cake
- Lancôme Hypnôse mascara Volume sur mesure

Face:
- NYX HD wand concealer in 04Beige
- Lancôme Miracle cushion 02 beige rosé
- Le Blush crème de Chanel 62 Présage
- Chanel Poudre univerelle 22 Rose claire
- MAC Summer Opal Beauty powder (shimmery highlighter)

Lips :
- MAC Forbbiden Sunrise lipstick


I am sooo diggin' the bold orange lip! Seriously, I think it really brightens my complexion. But I do need to combine it with a nice blush or it drains my face  making me look terribly pale. I guess Chanel Présage did the job quite nicely! Plus the MAC lipstick are always of such outstanding quality, practically you can't go qrong with them. This one although is a matte colour is not drying at all (and I'm the queen of dehydrated lips) and it is remarkably longlasting!

Although the highlighter is quite shimmery, once it is well blended and with a light hand I guess is also wearable even for a day-time look! (You can click to enlarge and see the highlighter effect). I am super happy with all three items I got from this collection, and I am going to enjoy them a lot specially for summer.


What do you think about bold orange lips? Would you dare?  Let me know your answer in the comments!

Love,
Nati

  2. The lipstick looks awesome on you! With my skin- and haircolor I prefer more muted colors on both clothing and make up, it just looks better on me. Only on my fingernails I wear bold colors ;-)

  6. se te ve este color estupendo, qué color de blush piensas buscar? Qué tal con los dientes, el naranja tiende a dar la impresión que los dientes están amarillentos.
