MAC - A Tartan Tale - Holiday 10

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
Place all your A Tartan Tale swatches and product photographs in this thread - please ensure that your images are clear, in focus and as colour-accurate as possible! For the sake of clarity, I ask that official product images and swatches (those that you would find on a mailer postcard, sourced from MAC or posted on the official MAC website) are not posted in this thread.
Please remember that Specktra has a posting guideline that all posted images be no wider than 640 pixels or higher than 800 pixels - if your image is any larger than that, please make a text link to the image instead.


Full color story will follow soon!

Check out the A Tartan Tale discussion for the latest spicy dish.

This picture sucks. Sorry. Up top is My Highland Honey (an unflattering, flat, chalky peach) and Her Blooming Cheek (way, way bright. not interested). Also, the pearlglides: Lord it Up(pretty nice, but meh), Black Line(I really like this one. In person I can really see the gold.), Undercurrent(amazing!), Black Swan(it was ok, very subtle, but I prefer Black Line.), Petrol Blue(gorgeous, pearly navy blue. not unique but great).


Up top: The Faerie Glen, Moonlight Night(gorgeous and different enough from DBG to justify the purchase) and The Family Crest pigments up top (gorgeous black bronze with plenty of shimmer)

Bottom: Deepest Wish(a cousin of dark deed and felt dry), Courting Lilac(took work to see color on my hand. I like Lustres but not this. Color looks sick. Not on par with other glazes like Bubblegum, Big Bow and Spiced Tea), Full Fuchsia(very bright and opaque, but didn't do anything for me. kinda over these colors), Cut A Caper (an unflattering, semi-opaque peachy pink. The closest thing I can think of is Jazzed, but they are not dupes).


Dazzleglass Cremes Right top to bottom: Radiant Jewels(good one, but don't love it enough to buy it), Soft Dazzle
Left top to bottom: Romancin'(prettier the second time around. I might buy this. might.), Passing Fancy(very pretty coral. I can see this over many lipsticks, but you may have a similar DG. I will probably buy this.), Lightly Prancing(I really liked this one. It's universally flattering, I think)


Single shadows(this is where it gets fuzzy) The top left to right: Enviably Fun(I don't see any green in this. it was just like a soft yellow. go figure.), Glamora Castle(even duller in person. this is the one I was looking forward to. skip!),I believe this one is Semi-Precious(not the color I would wear, but it is pigmented and smooth so if this is your kind of color buy it), A Wish Come True(it's like in the beautiful Iris family. meh)

Bottom left to right: I know the first one is Golden Crown(pretty but totally not unique), Follow Your Fantasy(now this is the only single shadow I can see myself buying. peach, coral fiends, you cannot resist.)




I forgot to swatch the triumphant blush kit. I hate that b/c I want that one. I didn't swatch the shadow palettes either. Both of my hands were so used up. I had sparkles and mac wipes scent all over them. Hope these pics help some of you.

Her Blooming Cheek is SO freaking pigmented.  It was hard to get a "light" swatch. I also found myself swatching My Highland Honey a bit more heavily as a result.
