Despite the title there is a distinct lack of tartan in my mini haul mainly due to the fact that I've finally learnt not to be conned by the 'pretty' packaging and gimmicky LE products. At last!!!
I skipped the palettes, sets and brushes as after four years of collecting them I know they barely get touched, they may look good but they sit unloved.
If your just venturing into make-up or interested in Mac the Christmas sets are a nice way to get a taste of the brand and I'm sure the macaholic in me last year would have snapped some up.
My bank balance is thanking me already!
However I did pick up two things from A Tartan Tale, Novembers Scottish inspired collection which came out here yesterday.
Did I really need another brown eyeliner? No but did I buy one? Oh yes!
Lord It Up is a deep brown with a tinge of bronze and gold sparkle, lovely really lovely but it's not the colour that makes me love this, it's the formula.
As a Pearlglide Intense it's super pigmented, doesn't budge and most of all is amazingly soft, without a doubt the creamiest formula I've ever tried, fabulous!
I am now trying hard to resist the other shades which just scream Christmas!
My love of peach is no secret and naturally My Highland Honey, a soft pale peach with a satin finish had to be mine.
I find peach tones more wearable on my skintone, warmer and more subtle than pinks when applied.
If you love lipsticks such as NYX India, Jemma Kidd Wendy, Eve Pearl Nude Beach and NYX Orange Soda then you will love this, it's the powder form.
The other two products I purchased are nothing exciting or from the collection, ones a back up and the other something I wanted to try.
Have you hauled your TT yet? What did you get? Or were you being good this month?
