MAC A Tartan Tale in Singapore

October 17, 2010

If you missed out on Venomous Villains, fret not – you can satisfy your makeup wanderlust with A Tartan Tale, the MAC Holiday 2010 collection. Slated to launch here in late October, this mega MAC offering is MASSIVE!

Although I have my eye on the pink blush trio, I’ll prolly skip the sets. I am looking forward to buying more Pearlglide liners (they are remarkably good as eyeshadow bases) and may purchase some of the other product singles too. (Bagpipes are playing in my head as I think of the tartan-striped shadows…they are a-calling!)

Many of the product names made me smile – they capture the spirit of the holiday, as well as the tartan theme (lairds! castles! heraldry!). That said, this isn’t my favourite MAC/holiday makeup packaging – I dread to think of  the makeup colours staining the tartan fabric. I do concede that MAC has put some thought into this collection; it’s cute that the sets all have crests with the brand’s name on them.

Here are the Singapore prices of this extensive collection. Start planning. ;)

      Hi Farah,

      Isn’t it huge?! Me too – I’m eyeing some of the individual items. ;)

    Thanks for the info, Mag! As always, you’re a great help in my ‘financial management” as i know how much i need to store away for the winter for this collection! I love both the blush sets, and am surprise that they’re re-promoting oh-so-fair, oh so soon!

      Hi Lynn,

      You’re welcome! It’s such an extensive collection that I think it would be wise to make $trategic purchasing plans. ;)

    Hi Mag. Sometimes I think MAC wants to rule the world… Hey, hold on a mo… don’t they already rule the makeup world??!! ;-)

      Hey Milktea,

      I know! MAC’s like this makeup power machine…

  4. October 18, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    MAC seems to launch MASSIVE collection lately. I wonder how fans keep up? Ain’t it confusing?

      Hey Farah,

      I think it beats having things go out of stock so damn quickly. And yes, it is confusing because sometimes (as with this gargantuan collection), several of the items are re-promotes. :P

      Hi Shopaholic,

      You’re welcome. :)

  6. October 23, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    Hey Mag, Yes the repromotes vs the new & lim ed are confusing me I don’t even wanna take notes as I read. BTW do you know if we get the Viva Glam Lip Bag here?

    • makeupmag
      October 24, 2010 at 12:20 pm

      Hi Farah,

      Yes, the Viva Glam lip bags are in. I almost bought one but they looked a little too warm for me. I’m not sure when the individual items are coming in. Maybe November or next Friday, I was told.

  7. October 23, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    I saw the Viva Glam Lip Bag. :) When are the indv items coming? I thought I could hv bagged all I wanted today…oh well!

  8. October 24, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    Hi Mag. I like the bag that comes with Viva Glam LOL. I end up not getting it & got one of the lip bags instead, I cannot wait to see the indv items. :)

      Hey Farah,

      I was quite attracted to the neutral shades (not so much the bag) but I guess it’s good for my wallet that I didn’t love the shades in the end? ;)

  9. October 25, 2010 at 3:16 am

    I always buy a lip item or 2 or 10 or 100s LOL. It was easy to pick that out from the sea of everything. :)

    • makeupmag
      October 25, 2010 at 12:58 pm

      LOL, Farah, I remember your love affair with lip gloss; I’ve always marvelled at how you finished tube after tube.

    October 25, 2010 at 11:26 am

    It’s already out!

    • makeupmag
      October 25, 2010 at 12:55 pm

      Hi Ruby,

      Yes, it is. The non-set items aren’t, though.

  11. October 25, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    For a while I only open another when I finish one. But I hv been opening a new lipgloss almost everyday since last week. At this rate, I will hv to dump them all at the same time. :/

      Hey Farah,

      Variety is the spice of life! :D

  12. October 26, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    It sure is! :P I open yet another today, the UD gloss which you got not long ago, cannot rber the name.

      October 28, 2010 at 12:40 am

      I read your tweet, Farah! Perversion is lovely, isn’t it? :)

  13. October 28, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Oh Mag! Dior Addict Ultra Gloss for the hols has a gloss in the same family shade, sheer no glitters. Soooo pretty! I am going to swatch again today & maybe get it LOL!

      Hi Farah,

      I saw that gloss and it’s GORGEOUS. So tempted but I’m staying off lip products at the moment. Just cleared my lip drawer and found quite a few gems. :)

  14. November 2, 2010 at 3:00 am

    Hey Mag, I went & came back without it! Going slow till I manage to clear my drawers.

    • makeupmag
      November 5, 2010 at 2:52 am

      Good girl, Farah! I find it easier to say no to lip products, since they go bad the fastest, among point makeup.

  15. November 5, 2010 at 3:11 am

    Yes that is another reason to stay away. I am going to use what I like more & do some clean up soon. :)

      Hey Farah,

    I think there will be any launch date for the pigments & lipglass sets in Singapore …. do you know when? Think US is Nov 11.

    • makeupmag
      November 7, 2010 at 11:51 pm

      HI Macflor,

      I’m not sure when but it’s likely to be this coming Friday, since MAC usually launches its new collections on Fridays.

      Hi Laura,

      I’m not sure but it could be this Friday or the next.
