MAC A Tartan Tale Haul

Went to the A Tartan Tale Chapter 1 collection for Holiday 2010 pre-launch event on Monday. The Chapter 2 collection will be officially released here in December only but we got to see/buy them yesterday. I mentioned I was thinking of the lipsticks but I got none of them! They're very pretty in person but when I swatched them on my pigmented lips, they look pretty awful on me.

I got myself Black Line and Undercurrent Pearlglide eyeliners, Passing Fancy and The Swinging Violet Mineralize kit.

I've never bought any eye liner from MAC before. When I saw Black Line Pearglide eyeliner, I told myself  must have it! I'm a big fan of soft long-lasting pigmented eyeliners. I love green eye liner, this one is very dark olive green with gold shimmer. Undercurrent is teal green with gold sheen,  a very lovely colour.
Passing Fancy Dazzleglass Creme is a lovely sheer peach shade. It gives my lips a light peach tint when wearing it alone. I wanted Gone Romancin' but I was a second too late because another lady bought the last one! I hope I will be able to find it in the other two stores.
The Swinging Violet Mineralize kit consists of Bare Study Paint Pot, Earthly Riches Mineralize eyeshadow duo, Icescape Lipglass and a mini Zoom Lash mascara.
It was Earthly Riches that caught my eyes. I didn't have any dark eyeshadows in my collection and this one is so pretty. I've always wanted to try Paint Pot (I only use Paint) and Bare Study looks like the shade I will use everyday.


  1. Gorgeous haul! Undercurrent looks so pretty. :)

  2. *nods* :) It's so pretty that I had to go back to MAC to grab it! I didn't get it during the event cuz I thought I've UD's Covet at home.

  3. Gorgeous Haul! You're going to love MAC eyeliners now that you've picked these up. I'm a little hooked on them, they have this soft, smudgy texture that is great for makeup newbies like me. I used Black Swan recently with purple eye makeup - it goes really well. If you happen to be around a MAC store one of these days, do swatch Buried Treasure, Tarnish, Permaplum or Prussian. I'm sure you'll like them :)

  4. i need to be more adventurous when it comes to eyeliner - i only own black and dark gray! haha! boooorrrrriiing! ;P

  5. fieran: I'll definitely check out the other MAC eyeliners :) Thanks!

    Kym: I used to have colourful eyeliners only... then I found Urban Decay 24/7. I'm in love with black liners!
