Sometimes I'll get an idea and its not a good one, like thinking I needed some lavender/purple lip colours. Enter MAC Tartan Tale holiday collection and we have the paring of Courting Lilac and Gone Romancin’ dazzleglass creme.
Although Courting Lilac (£12.50) is a glaze formula, I do not find this shade particularly sheer. Its a cool toned mauve/purple with a gold shimmer/sheen. Gone Romancin’ (£14.50) is a very shimmery, frosty, lilac with a hint of pink.
Courting Lilac looks a bit dull and the colour too mismatched with my skintone and Gone Romancin’ is just too shimmery/frosty. Worn together and they work better, as the dazzleglass gives it a lift and a bit of brightness and the lipstick takes some of the edge off the shimmer/frost of the gloss.
I hadn't even been thinking about getting one of the blusher kits then tempting Anna went and did a post of them and drew me in http://italianbeautyblog.blogspot.com/2010/11/mac-tartan-tale-collection-part-2-face.html.
I got the Hark the Heraldry Face Kit (£29.50) .
It includes a beauty powder, Oh So Fair (sheer pale pink) and two blushes: Dame (very cool toned medium pink ), Plum Foolery (dusty rose plum with golden shimmer).
MAC do not make my favorite blushes, I find they have a tendency to go on a bit patchy and do not last that well, I do however like their beauty powders and I thought this would be a useful set to have as I don't seem too have many pinky blushers at the moment as I have been off on a peachy tangent.
Here are the blush ingredients:
I did almost get the Sir Teddy, however in real life he was a bit smaller and not as soft as expected, I noticed his bow and tag and thought about how my little boy treats soft toys and realised this bear may not last too well.
