MAC A Tartan Tale Haul and Swatches

I got a little sneaky peaky at the Tartan Tale collection at my local MAC's event. Unfortunately, I showed up a little too late and they'd sold out of the pigments! Ludicrous. So FYI, apparently the pigments will be the first to sell out... I didn't end up getting any holiday sets at the event since I'd presaled at Nordstrom. I'll post pics of my sets and whatnot when I get it (or them... I only bought one so far). MAC's a Tartan Tale launches this Thursday, October 28th.

Left to right: Black Swan Pearlglide eyeliner, Style Clan nail polish, Glamora eyeshadow, Well Dressed Blush (not from the collection).

Glamora eyeshadow is described as a dark grey with teal tartan striping. I find it a little more medium grey with a definite cool streak. The eyeshadow itself is quite large.

Style Clan nail polish is described as a dark taupe with red pearl. The taupe makes the little red flecks more bronze colored.

Black Swan Pearlglide eyeliner is a black with pearl. The pearl gives the black an almost midnight blue tint.

Swatched left to right: Black Swan, Glamora, Well Dressed

As a bonus, here's a lip swatch of Cut a Caper lipstick. It's a midtone peachy pink. This will definitely look good on all skin types. It's a bit sheer so it's a pretty good everyday lipstick.

Disclosure: I bought everything featured here.


  1. that eyeshadow is so much more gorgeous in the swatch than i thought it would be from the pan! hmm.. my wallet is cringing already ;)

  2. I wish I had a MAC store near where I live...

  3. Thanks for the post. The cut a caper lipstick looks really pretty!

  4. i love the Glamora eyeshadow! i have t get it haha.

  5. Lovely buys! Everything you got seems like a staple!

  6. Nice haul! I love the grey in pan, but it just isn't a color that would suit me.

  7. Great swatches. I am not sure if I'm getting anything from this collection. Will have to look at a few more swatches. Well dressed is one of my all time faveourites. Love that blush.

  8. Oooh! I've been thinking I need to add a silvery grey to my collection, and I like the glamora. Is it in a blush sized container? I don't want to haul around something so big!

  9. Danimal- it's like 2/3rds the size of a blush. Not too huge. It's as big as the mineralized eyeshadows.
