Ladies, is this a collection or what?  MAC is coming out with A Tartan Tale for Holiday 2010 — a four-part collection featuring lots and lots of plaid.  This is the only the Colour collection.  There are also Chapters 1 & 2 (makeup kits), and Sir Teddy / Kids Helping Kids / Viva Glam collections (greeting cards, teddy bears, and Viva Glam lippies! — which I am dying to get my hands on). 😀

Are you excited yet?  How would you like some swatches? 🙂

What Do You Think of A Tartan Tale?

I was disappointed with the colour payoff from the eyeshadow, which was really sad because it is gorgeous on the pan.  I found it kicked up too much product with a swipe of a brush.  The Family Crest pigment is amazing.  On a swatch, it just looks like a dark brown base with bronze sparkle, but once on, it looks like 2-3 beautifully blended eyeshadows. 😀 The Pearlglide liners are also not to be missed!

  • ooooooh~ the pigment and liner are gorgeous. and the patterning for the shadow is lovely, too bad that it does wear well 🙁

    • I really like the pigment, too! Will need to do a full look using it. 🙂

  • ace

    i SOOO want undercurrent, i have this ever so slight obsession with turquiose and teal at the moment… 🙂

    • You will like Undercurrent! It also lasts pretty well on the waterline, although they don’t recommend it. But I still use it however way I want. 🙂

  • That is way too pretty to use. And I hate tartan.

    I like the bright eyeliner and all the shadows, but I am way too inept (read: also lazy) to try and do my makeup without turning into a raccoon.

    • Haha FB! If it helps, I read that the eyeshadows are quite sheer, so it’s hard to look like a racoon with very sheer colours. 🙂

      You should really try a bright eyeliner one time, just on your lower lash line. I like the unexpected placement of colour, and it doesn’t look like too much.

    AHH; Family Crest looks amazing on your skintone! Love it 🙂

    *whispers* Like FB, though, I too hate tartan. Don’t tell anyone!

    • Thanks! 🙂 I’m actually thinking about pressing A Family Crest into a pan.

  • Whoa that pigment is amazing. I am not too fond of pigments due to the fallout but dang this is nice.

    • It’s really nice! It would look hot on your skin tone too. 🙂
