Holiday 2010: MAC “A Tartan Tale” Collection…

Oh my GOODNESS. This collection is HUGE (the hugest collection I have seen since Antiquitease) If you have never seen a MAC holiday collection, it’s usually pretty expansive with loads of limited edition items that run the gamut.  All of them are pretty….there are so many offerings you won’t know where to send your wallet first.  A Tartan Take certainly doesn’t disappoint…as there are several new shades and repromotes from classic collections (Hello….Heatherette!!)  I’m dying over the little plaid tins, lipglass kits, wristlets and pigments!! These make FAB inexpensive gifts for friends (Or yourself….LOL)

“At M·A·C we’ve gone the way of the world, with our most ambitious holiday effort to-date; An epic we call A Tartan Tale, our own Brontë-gone-bonkers story set upon the moors of a fantasy M·A·C Magicland, replete with the most ravishing and elaborate sets and characters, kinetically come to life, courtesy of our madcap collaboration with witty Brit photographer Tim Walker.  Tartan is about being true to your clan.  We believe in all clans, of every colour, sex, and conviction – and most of all being true to yourself.

The M∙A∙C Holiday Collections are slightly twisted – ancestral and anarchic in all its noble and naughty glory! Colours and patterns collide in a truly epic transformation that is both posh and punk. Brilliant and bright lip colours, tartan striped shadows, and fancy makeup kits are just a few of the majestic and magical M∙A∙C gift ideas this season!

So gather your clan, kick up your kilt and have a happy M·A·C holiday!”
