I am a huge fan of the MAC Look In A Box sets because they are a good way to try new products without spending a fortune. MAC Cosmetics has released six new Look In A Box face kits towards the end of 2016 and each kits includes seven permanent full-sized / deluxe travel-sized products that can be bought individually.

MAC Look In A Box Natural Flare Collection

My latest purchase from MAC is the Look In A Box set in the Natural Flare Collection. It is described as a neutral-tone kit that features two eyeshadows in All That Glitters and Row Cocoa, a blush in Coppertone, a lipstick in Hug Me, a lipglass in Spice, a liner in Graphblack and a travel-sized blush brush. The set retails for USD $56.50 with a value of up to USD $140.00.

The reason that I only bought the MAC Look In A Box Natural Flare Collection because it is the only one out of the six face kits that includes the products or shades that I haven't tried before and I was very excited about the set because I have wanted to try the All That Glitters eyeshadow and the Hug Me lipstick for a long long time.

MAC COPPERTONE BLUSH

MAC Powder Blush in the shade Coppertone is described as a Peach Brown in a Matte finish, it is retailed for USD $23.00 if purchased on its' own. Coppertone is not a blush colour that I would normally go for because looking in the pan, the colour looks almost like a warm toned orangey bronzer colour, but I was surprised to see that when swatched on skin, the colour looks like an unexpected gorgeous peach. Coppertone is a Matte finish with a smooth texture, it has a sheer pigmentation that is buildable, it is blendable and it applies evenly on the cheeks.

MAC ALL THAT GLITTERS EYESHADOW

MAC Eye Shadow in the shade All That Glitters is described as a beige with gold pearl in a Veluxe Pearl finish, it is retailed for USD $16.00 when buying individually. I have always seen people raving about All That Glitters and this eyeshadow colour has been on my wish list for a very long time, so it's very exciting that I finally get to try this eyeshadow. All That Glitters is truly as good as what everyone says, I love the light champagne shade with that frosty effect and I like that it has a great pigmentation with a soft and smooth texture that glides on the eyelids evenly.

MAC RAW COCOA EYESHADOW

MAC Raw Cocoa Eye Shadow must be exclusive to the Natural Flare face kit because I cannot find it on the MAC website. Raw Cocoa is a light brown with loads shimmer and I am a little disappointed with this one because the colour applies very patchy and uneven.

MAC HUG ME LIPSTICK

MAC Lipstick in the shade Hug Me is described as a Flesh Pink in a Lustre finish and it retails for USD $17.00 when buying individually. Hug Me is another MAC product that has been sitting in my wish list for a long time, I love that it has a semi-sheer pigmentation that gives a glossy look, the colour is buildable with a couple of swipes and I love that it has a smooth texture that glides on the evenly, the lipstick is moisturizing during wear and it doesn't emphasise dry patches nor lip lines.

MAC SPICE LIPGLASS

MAC Spice Lipglass is described as a Midtone Neutral Nude and it retails for USD $16.00 if purchased individually. Spice is a nude brown shade, it has a full opaque coverage that applies evenly on the lips without emphasising the lip lines. Spice has a sweet vanilla scent, just like any other MAC Lipglass and it worn well for three hours on me.

MAC 116SE BLUSH BRUSH

MAC 116SE Blush Brush is described as a perfect makeup tool for shading and highlighting the cheeks, the normal 116 blush brush retails for USD $35.00 and the one included in the set is a travel-sized / special edition and I assume that you cannot buy this one on its' own. I am not too familiar with MAC brushes because I always think that they are too expensive, but I have tried those special Limited Edition ones and I thought that the quality was terrible. I haven't tried the 116SE yet so I cannot comment on this one, but reviewing my previous experience with MAC travel-sized brushes, I didn't like that the bristles fall-outs a lot during each wash.

Lastly, there is a MAC Technakohl Liner in Graphblack included in the Natural Flare face kit, but I cannot find it anywhere and I thought I must have lost it while I was taking photos for this post.

Anyway, MAC Technakohl Liner retails for USD $17.00 and Graphblack is described as a rich graphic black. I own a couple of Graphblack in the past as it is a popular eyeliner shade that MAC likes to add into special kits, I find that they are hard to draw a wing liner, but they are easily applied when drawing a simple liner. MAC Technakohl Liner has a smooth texture and a good pigmentation, they are not water-proof or sweat-proof etc, but I find that they are quite long-wearing.
