MAC A Tartan Tale Makeup Collection for Holiday 2010 – Preliminary Information + Photos

Hi everyone!

A few months ago the news about MAC A Tartan Tale (scoop post) was spreading over the internet but back then we only knew the launch date of this Holiday 2010 makeup collection.

Now there are some photos available and just some preliminary information. Seems like some of the Lipglasses will be repromotes so I’m not sure we are going to see new colors. Nothing is confirmed so far as I said so there’s still time to make some changes. There will be also some Anniversary Makeup Brushes Sets available in a Limited Edition.

  1. I love this, I went to a very Scottish school in the Midwest, my grandfather lived there for a while. I have to save up for this one 🙂 because I may get everything.

  2. I love the packaging of this collection, it’s so pretty! But I find the actual shades to be very boring and easily dupable so I’m just gonna skip this collection entirely. 🙁

  3. I would love to see swatches, it’s hard for me to decided what I like or not based on pics when it comes to MAC 🙂
    I don’t like when they launch to many similar colors.. :/

  4. These are great! Last years Mirth and Magic was too many products; so far these all look like winners, especially the brush sets and pigments. I like the Smoky Eyes done in purples and plums too. How many brown and black pallets do you need? I have to have that one!

    The disappointment? No Queen’s Sin lip stick…
