A Small MAC A Tartan Tale Haul

November 9, 2010

The individual items from the MAC A Tartan Tale colour collection finally arrived last Friday, so I swung by the MAC counter to take a look.

I ended up purchasing:

  • MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Undercurrent (S$27)
  • MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Black Swan (S$27)
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Glamora Castle (S$33)

MAC Pearlglides are my go-to bases for intensifying shadows. Undercurrent is a teal with gold sparkles. This one is a back-up; I already have one from the MAC Art Supplies collection but I use it so often that I need an extra! Black Swan is a blackened pewter that would be perfect as a base for smokes.

I couldn’t resist Glamora Castle because it’s a smooth, shimmery grey. The tealy reflects lend it complexity and this would be a beautiful accent/contour shade on me for smokes. The blue tones won’t last, of course but I’ll enjoy them while they still show up! There’s a flash of pink in the shadow which makes me think of the duo-chromed MAC Eye Shadow in Vex; I think it’d work well with the grey. ;)

    That’s a very conservative haul! :) I am overflowing with too many new MAC items, need to some organizing as I ran out of space BIG time.

      Hi Farah,

      It certainly is but nothing pulled me (thank goodness!). I just added more storage space but er…:P

    Your swatches of Glamora Castle look so nice! Now I’m tempted!

      Hi Chantana,

      Get it before it’s gone! (Then again, it might surface at the next MAC sale…:P)

      Hi Whitney,

      Undercurrent is quite a special colour. I know I will get some use out of Glamora Castle, so I caved!

      Hi Karen,

      I usually don’t cave to the holiday collections (a part of me knows that many items will turn up at the MAC sale events :P) but I had to get these PGLs since I like them very much! :)

    I just did my own haul yesterday too!

    I picked up Black Swan, Lord it Up pearlglides as well as the two nail polishes. My fav pearlglide from Art Supplies is definitely Black Line, but I’m trying hard not to back-up anything.

    I was also considering Glamora Castle myself, but I should stop while I’m ahead :P

      Hi Stickles,

      Great haul! Black Line is a little too golden for me but it is beautiful! :)

      Iriiiis! Hope you’re having a fabulous trip. :) Not a biggie – I just added a Muji box to my makeup condo; not upwards but sideways, so…a new wing? An annex? LOL! Send you pics when I take them. ;)

    Nice buys! I swatched the PGLs and they glide on like a dream! I was at Tangs and the blush kit with oh-so-fair ( Hark the Heraldry) as well as the Vain & Glorious Lip Bag are sold out already! I only got one of the brush sets, since many of the products are re-releases.
