MAC lipsticks are something I always want, but I actually only owned 4 prior to this order, so I thought this collection would be my perfect way to try out a few more shades. The MAC Look in a Box is a limited edition collection with a variation of sets from 5 mini lipsticks like I got in this set to a full face of products. I’ve got the MAC Look in a Box: Be Sensational.
As mentioned above this collections consists of of 5 mini MAC lipsticks, in both amplified and matte finishes. The size of the tip of the lipsticks is noticeably smaller, but for a mini I feel you get a relatively large amount of product, and it is something that will last you a decent amount of time.
The colours of the lipsticks are mainly on the pink spectrum but there is a nude and a orange toned shade thrown in too! The shades included are as follows;
* Velvet Teddy – a matte deep-tone beige, but on myself I would describe this as more of a brown toned colour, with a hint of pink. * High Society – a matte dusty coral, this is the orange toned one of the bunch, perfect for Spring and Summer. * Russian Red – a matte blueish-red, the blueish tones translate as a slight pink toned red on myself. * Nouvelle Vogue – a matte soft blue pink, the perfect everyday pink shade. * Scene Stirrer – a amplified creme rich pink rose, the bright pink of the set.
I believe this set comes with a great selection of colours, and really allows you to try a good selection at a very reasonable price of £32.00. As I have found with the few lipsticks I have already got, I find the formulas last well on my lips, with the matte lipsticks lasting slightly longer than the amplified creme finish lipstick. On a working day, I find I only need to top up the formula once around lunch time. They are also incredibly comfortable lipsticks to wear, even with my lips which tend to get dry easily.
Overall, I am so impressed with this little set and I am so glad I picked it up. The only problem is it has made me want to pick up even more MAC lipsticks. I think my favourites definitely have to be Velvet Teddy and Nouvelle Vogue. I’ve been really enjoying pairing High Society with an orange eye makeup look too.
If you would like to pick up this limited collection of mini lipsticks up they are sold out on the MAC website, but they are still available here at Debenhams.
