"In your face", to me, implies a sense of depth – foreground & background – rather than width. And yes it must be in the mix, and usually comes from the arrangement as much as the mix itself.
Are you listening on headphones? Maybe you're hearing more of a left/centre/right type of mix, with healthy amount of transients & mids detail in the centre image slightly contrasting with the sides, which also helps give separation to that?
