From Wiktionary

I really appreciate having things or happenings to look forward to, and this time - as many other - it's related to makeup. See, on October 28th M·A·C is releasing their Holiday 2010 collection in the US, namely A Tartan Tale. This is one of those larger collections consisting of lots of different elements, and it can be very hard to choose which treasures to get. Now this is a collection I'm liking! Everyone who knows me knows that part of my heart resides in Ireland, so when this Scottish inspired collection was announced it immediately caught my attention.

The names, the packaging (it's plaid, for crying out loud), the large amount of products - oh wait, that's a bad thing - is all appealing to me! I'm probably not the only one who's seeing their moolah sprout wings and fly off though.. I'm not feeling bad though, since I'm skipping the next three collections altogether.

MAC A Tartan Tale: Viva Glam Lip BagI have decided what to get from A Tartan Tale, and that's that. In addition to the items which I'm getting because I want them, I'm also getting the 'Tis Noble to Give Viva Glam Lip Bag - and the Viva Glam Mr. Teddy. I've been thinking about buying the Viva Glam V lipstick several times, and since I already haven't I'm getting this cute set - what can be better than supporting M·A·C Viva Glam and Kids Helping Kids? All proceedings go to the M·A·C AIDS Fund. And I'm really loving the red plaid bag it comes in!

More about my choices from A Tartan Tale later!

  1. Since I dont live near a MAC cosmetics store I seldom get hyped over any of the collection.. I wont be able to get them anyway.. this collection is one of 4 collections from MAC that has really caught my eyes.. I love the design of it and I have good friends over in the UK so this reminds me of them Smile
    It will be interesting to see what you decide to pick up Smile

    Take care hun

    To be honest things didn’t really change when we got a M·A·C counter in Trondheim. I still prefer to buy my makeup online, mostly due to the prices. It also seems easier to get the limited edition products when ordering from the US, instead of getting up at 8 AM in the morning to go to the local counter, just to be told that they didn’t get all the products anyway.

    I adore A Tartan Tale! I’m not sure if I have the guts to post my list, as it is long, but we’ll see. Wink The design is awesome, and not like anything else we’ve seen from M·A·C although I think the palettes are a bit too similar to the palettes released last holiday with “Magic, Mirth and Mischief”.

    Take care you too, and have a nice weekend. Smile *hugs*

  3. Totally agree! This collection is something to look forward to.. Smile

  4. FIkk se kolleksjonen med egne øyne og muligheten til å pre-order igår. jeg kjøpte ikke noe faktisk! men det var et par paletter som jeg likte ekstra gost, glemte å sjekke navn da seff…

  5. Ingrid:
    Muligheten til å pre-order, og så kjøpte du ingenting? Shock Du må ha enorme mengder viljestyrke, kvinne! Det er så mye her jeg har lyst på at det nesten er litt pinlig.. Om det var en øyenskyggepalett, så finner du fine swatches her – jeg er litt tent på “Reelers & Rockers”, men jeg syns ikke den er unik nok til å bruke penger på den.
