MAC Look in a Box: Sophisticate

This was a little Christmas delight from my boyfriend's wonderful mum. She always hits the nail on the head and generously gets me something perfect. This year, it was a limited edition MAC Look in a Box, which contains 2 cheek colours, 6 eye shadows, 2 lipsticks and one double ended brush (one end eye shadow, one end lip). The lip colours have a handy perspex lid over them, which stops any pesky fall out from the powders getting stuck in their creamy formula. 

This box is called Sophisticate, and has classic neutrals for eyes (my favourite!), peach colours for the cheeks and one nude and one red for the lips. 

The red lip is True Red which is an amplified colour, and is more of a coral red than a blood red, which I've never tried before but surprisingly really suits my colouring. The nude lip is Love Happens, which is a pale peachy nude and goes perfectly for an effortless day time look, or a smokier eye in the evening. 

The six shades are: Dance in the Dark (matte, dark brown), Sun Tweaked (pale copper, shimmery), Wedge (matte, mid brown), With Flair (warm, shimmery peach), Beautifully Charred (shimmer, dark brown), Hey (pale champagne, shimmery). They're buttery soft and easy to apply, the same usual quality from MAC eyeshadows.

Two peach offerings here, Linda is the darker of the two and will be the perfect highlighter for those with more olive skin tones, or for a summer glow. Cream Soda is the paler here, and it is a classic peach highlighter colour with plenty of shimmer. 

The set is so versatile and can be used for simple everyday looks, but can also be used to create more dramatic looks for evenings out. The ideal set to take when travelling as there is so much to chose from in one small package. Dreamy! Have you tried any total face sets before? This is my first, and I love it! 

Love, K. x
