We’re loving M.A.C’s new Tartan Tale Collection which is being launched to celebrate the 2010 holiday season, and which is packed with the most fabulous gift ideas for all your beauty-loving buddies. Inspired by a twisted mix of bonny bagpipes on the Scottish moors and Johnny Rotten and the Sex Pistols, in the Tartan Tale Collection colours and patterns collide for the girl who can’t decide whether she’d prefer to be punk or princess! We’re sensing a definite Vivienne Westwood inspiration to the line…
Working perfectly with this season’s fashion trends for heritage looks and plaids, we’re dying to fill our makeup bags with their cute lip, eye and face kits, each of which comes in a mirrored compact complete with the M.A.C family crest. Perfect for that “back to school” feeling. The colours range from soft heathers and highland greens, to punchy brights, corals and jewel shades.
Another idea we love are these little Lip and Eye bags, and Brush sets, which each come in their own tartan pouch trimmed with shiny patent, made to look a little like a Scottish sporran. Each pouch comes with a clip-on strap so that you don’t have to just keep it on your dressing table but could put it on for a night out too… My favourite kit is the A Lady & Her Tricks Buff & Line Brush Collection, which I’m planning to add to my Christmas list this year!
The M.A.C. Tartan Collection will pre-launch on October 28th at Faces M.A.C counters, and then be available as of November 1st at all M.A.C locations.
