I’m pretty sure a bell rang, an angel got its wings, or a kitten got its whiskers because Holiday is now in full force courtesy of the Sephora Friends and Family Event. I swear this time of year totally launches me right into full force Holiday mode and now I’m bracing myself for the upcoming shopping trips ahead.
And to get us even more deeper into the festive good year, MAC will launch A Tartan Tale next week! Yes, it’s time now kids.
Are you full force holiday yet?
Well, let me aid your along if you aren’t with a look at the MAC A Tartan Tale Dashing Lassies Eye Shadow Palette.
Ah this is what we wait for, ye old eyeshadow palette release from MAC. This year we have four shadow palettes to look forward from MAC. As traditional as Turkey, loud family members, and presents, MAC Eyeshadow Palettes are ones we’ve come to depend on year after year and they rarely disappoint even though sometimes it’s a bit of a rehash of years past.
I got my hands on one a little early which is the Dashing Lassies Eye Shadow Palette. This one leans towards being fairy neutral but quite warm.
Shades you get are Once Upon a Time (metallic vanilla), Bronze (copper-y penny), A Dashing Lassie (metallic milk), Magical Mist (taupe), Showstopper (dark matte brown), and Buckwheat (medium brown).
The first tier of the palette is a bit of a bore but if you’re one for “cutting your crease” and you embrace such a look this is a great selection to use to do so. The second tier is made up of far warmer shades that will compliment brown eyes beautifully. I’m partial to shades like these myself. It goes without saying the formula of the shadows is outstanding and has plenty of pigmentation with a great formula for blending, at this, MAC always exceeds.
The palette itself features the a traditional green plaid design. I mentioned in an earlier post that I wasn’t sure how these palettes would withstand the test of time as I do worry the design will stain or ruin if they get wet but we shall see.
I think MAC A Tartan Tale isn’t my favorite Holiday release this year nor is it my favorite from MAC in most recent years however some of the selections are interesting enough to warrant a purchase particularly from the color collection. And of course, new fans will undoubtedly find the joy in the collection particularly because it packs so much value into makeup.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the Holiday selections!
