M·A·C A Tartan Tale and more!

MAC A Tartan TaleBack in October I wrote about the new collection from M·A·C called A Tartan Tale. A collection I fell instantly in love with, which also caused me to do some major hauling - with the help from darling Fieran.

On Wednesday it arrived in a big, exciting package. I resisted ripping it open at once as some of its content belonged to Pinchy, and I wanted to wait for her to be here with me. She came over on Thursday to share the look, and let me tell you.. it's a lot more fun to haul together with someone than alone. We opened up everything, oh-ed and ah-ed as we ripped away the padding and were extremely happy with our findings! Even though I didn't feel good at all I had a really nice time with Pinchy, and I hope to see her again real soon. She's the sweetest sweetheart out there, there's no doubt about it.

Thank you a million times Fieran, for going through the trouble of getting all this stuff for us. Let me know if there's anything I can do to return the favor. You're the best! Grin

Now, this post is about my A Tartan Tale haul, but I have to mention that Fieran also bought a few other things for me. She picked up replacement brushes for my Clarisonic Mia, a gift box containing four rollerballs of "Stella" and the newest addition to the Juicy Couture family namely "Peace Love and Juicy Couture". This scent quickly climbed to the top spot of favorites amongst my Juicy Couture perfumes, and settled quite high on the all-time favorite list as well. And the bottle? Simply to die for.

MAC A Tartan Tale

My first thought was that I would never actually use these eyeshadows because I adore the super cute plaid pattern, but Fieran told me to just swipe one half to keep the pattern intact on the other half - and that's a brilliant idea! I'm not sure if I like the fact that they are bigger (twice as much product) than the regular eyeshadows from M·A·C, but.. OK, details.

Since I keep my pigments neatly sorted by color, in what's originally a nail polish rack, placed on my bedroom wall, I kinda swore that I would stay away from those hideous new jars. With the three pigments in my haul I managed to stray away from my principles. Again. It's making my "OCD" nerve twitch a little, but the dark and mysterious colors are fabulous nonetheless!

I absolutely love the Viva Glam Lip Bag and my little Sir Teddy, but unfortunately I couldn't get them to fit in my haul picture. Just believe me when I say they were both worth the money, and I feel good having spent a little on a good cause as well.

And once again, a mighty big thanks to Fieran! *HUG*
