MAC Look in a Box

The trouble with gift sets, particularly cosmetics, is that you often find the package contains at least one item that you dislike and subsequently left to collect dust while others are used obsessively. When I received the email illustrating MAC’s new Look in a Box sets I was pleasantly surprised with the content that was presented. Their limited edition box boasts, and I quote, “a selection of kits offering looks in universal shades and finishes to complement your skin tone.”

Each boxset, All About Coral, All About Nude and All About Pink contain different colours of the same products; a lipstick, lip gloss, a veluxe pearl-fusion eye shadow trio and a technakohl liner. Look in a Box is priced at £35 – a brilliant deal when considering each MAC product alone usually retails approximately £15 individually. So, without further ado let’s take a look at the visuals.

The way I’d describe this release is like skipping the consultation session at a makeup counter. The makeup artists have essentially done the work for you already by matching the colours to your skin tone and offering you a collection of key makeup essentials in one kit.

I am experiencing difficulty deciding a favourite because I think each kit delivers a fantastic combination of complementary colours. Having said this, I do feel slightly swayed towards ‘All About Coral’ because that Passion Charge lipstick shade is gorgeous and I’m a fan softer tones on the eye. I definitely recommend checking them out whether it is a treat for you or as a gift.
