MAC's A Tartan Tale


Items I picked up from the MAC holiday collection

First up is a lip set
I actually was not too impressed with this set. The lip pencil is a very very light pink which I have no idea how to use, and I am not much of a fan of Dazzleglasses so I gave the items in this set away. I just really wanted the corresponding bag that comes with this set which I use currently as my everyday make up bag


Fabulous Fantasy Lip Kit
Quite possibly my favorite item from this line. I know I know it looks brown right???? When I first saw this I said noo way, too 80's... but I saw Fuzkittie use this and saw it was so light and sheer! I did not even swatch it in the store because I thought it looked too dark but I LOVE this!
Definitely better than it looks in the pan
All three colors are great


Triumphant Blush Face Kit

The colors in the photo are washed out. The Beauty Powder on the bottom is called Smooth Harmony. Looks useful as a contour. The Sheertone blush is Melba and the Shimmer is Peach twist.
There was a pink face kit but I have been very into Peach blushes lately, also the pink kit I think was a little more chalky, and the Melba in this kit was so pigmented I had to grab it.

Cut a Caper Lipstick
Light pink/coral, very wearable for work and everyday. Will probably wear this more during spring.


My Highland Honey Blush

I have been loooving my MAC Peaches, I had heard this was very simmilar so I passed on it but..I just could not stop thinking about (disease)
I figured if I wear Peaches 4x a week I would probably love this also.
This item is more true peach while MAC Peaches is like the peach fruit with a tiny bit of brown in the background.
Highland Honey is pretty but I think unless you are fair this may come off chalky and a bit hard to wear. I will wear this during the winter when I am at my palest.

I am so sorry for the lack of swatches I totally forgot until I uploaded all the pics!

In truth this collection is ok...you would not know it from the amount of items I bought. I actually saw this collection early and passed on everything but slowly as the reviews came pouring in I was sucked in ><>

Did you guys pick anything up from the holiday collection?
