MAC A Tartan Tale Collection - Chapter 1: Face & Eye Kits

MAC A Tartan Tale Collection - Chapter 1: Face & Eye Kits

From M∙A∙C:

Peekaboo! Poking a little fun at the kinky part of the kilt, these incorrigible kits for Lips, Eyes and Face have some flasher fun with mirrored compacts, but remain dignified with proper M∙A∙C family crests. New giftables that prove to be seductive, cheeky, good fun.

6 Beauties Play It Cool Eye Shadows

Our Tartan Tale is full of beauties like these six Eye Shadows. Watch them play it cool in shades of Heather Belles, To the Ball, Magic Moor, Hold My Gaze, Altered State and Silverware. All can be found in their own tartan compact with M∙A∙C crest. Limited edition.

5.3 g / 0.19 US oz US$36.00

Silverwear - Metallic lavender (Frost)  
Hold My Gaze - Medium grey (Frost)  
To the Ball - Dusty Lavender (Satin)
Altered State - Purple Grape (Veluxe Pearl)
Magic Moor Blackened Plum (Veluxe Pearl)
Heather Belles - Dark charcoal/carbon (Satin)

This palette contains 6 beautiful cool shades of purples. Siverwear is a light shimmery lavender that reminds me of Crystal or Digit Eyeshadow. Hold My Gaze is a great medium shade of grey with golden reflects. It's a very unique and gorgeous shade. To The Ball is a darker lavender grey color with a near matte finish. Altered State and Magic Moor are nicely pigmented darkened plum and grape purple shades. Heather Belles is a dark charcoal almost black color with a almost matte finish. All the shades are pigmented and great to work with (used a primer/base of course).

A Triumphant Blush Face Kit

With its peachy allure, how could this not be triumphant? Enjoy the highlight/contour/blush-up effects of Smooth Harmony Beauty Powder, Peachtwist Sheertone Shimmer Blush and Melba Powder Blush in our double-decker tartan face compact. Limited edition.


Smooth Harmony - Natural mid-tan (Beauty Powder) 
Melba - Soft coral peach (Matte)
Peachtwist - Golden peach (Sheertone Shimmer)

This kit is just instant love for me. Melba is already one of my favorite blushes and is available in the permanent line. It's a great matte peachy coral. Peachtwist is also permanent and is a pretty golden peach with shimmer. Smooth Harmony is a fantastic golden highlight color on my skin. It's a re-promote from the Heatherette Collection.

Hark The Heraldry Face Kit

The tartan double-decker compact with its M∙A∙C crest speaks of the regal lineage of this fabulous face trio! Highlight, contour, perfect and shimmer. Enjoy the heraldic mix of Oh So Fair Beauty Powder, Plum Foolery Sheertone Shimmer Blush and Dame Powder Blush. Limited edition.


Oh So Fair - Pale pink (Beauty Powder)
Dame - Sophisticated blue/pink (Satin)
Plum Foolery - Faint dusty plum (Sheertone Shimmer)

Dame is a permanent shade and is a medium blue pink that can work well on lighter and darker skin tones. Plum Foolery is also permanent and is a nice rose pink color with a light sheen. Oh So Fair is a re-promote from the Venomous Villains Collection last month and is a very light pale pink that can be used as a highlight for darker skin (think of that lighter under-eye look that's so popular now) and a nice light flush on lighter skin.
