  1. Jessi

    Good detective work finding this link! ‘Can’t wait to see more details :D

  2. Christy Ordonez

    I was just daydreaming yesterday about how j could achieve plaid on my lids for a party next week. I’m fated to own this collection.

    XD
    Hopefully its nothing so great, that way my wallet can heal till December when I’m planning to pick this one up.

    • Veronica

      Sorry ur pocket won’t be healing :( I got to play with this stuff @ days ago in the back of the store… AMAZING!

  4. I can see this being a nice collection, lovely colours and things.

  5. Avatar of Joanna Jojo

    I can’t wait for this! I’m Scottish!

  6. Liz

    That seems odd for a holiday collection. Will the packaging be LE?

  7. Bronzilla

    My husband’s Scots-Irish so maybe he’ll be willing to let me splurge a bit on this collection… :) Can’t wait to see colors, though I fear that due to the theme it may suit the fairer lasses more than me.

    • Avatar of Carmen Carmen

      I’m sure the collection will have something for every skin tone!

    • nicky

      i got to play with the products at update and there really is something for everyone in it … i think you’ll be pleasantly surprised

  8. Judy

    Wow. This looks like a very interesting collection as well. Damn you MAC!!! For goodness sakes. Can you please relax a bit for me? I am going broke. I have three collections that I know I am definitely buying from: In the Groove, Fabulous Felines, Dinsey Venomous Villains and now this one. Looking forward to some interesting colors. Can’t wait for more info. Thank you Christine!

  9. Dia

    I’m excited for the Nail Trends collex, but I’m even more excited for this!! Since it’s a holiday collection, it’ll probably be big with something for everyone. Or, knowing MAC, several things for everyone. ;-) And the special packaging is bound to be adorable to the max!

  10. Scottish/Irish here, and a sucker for tartans!

    I’m taking a vow to not buy anything based on the package, but only if I truly love what’s inside.

    • leslie

      amen to that :D haha i have too many things from mac that i only bought because of the packaging. not again! but this looks like yet another great collection cant wait to see the products

  11. Becca

    Oooh tartan sounds cool a Scottish kind of theme…sounds neat-o.
    I hope it is boring though so I don’t have to buy it haha.

  12. Kat

    Hmmm…the packaging looks to be awesome, but I don’t know. But I’ve liked past MAC holiday collections, so hopefully this lives up to them.

  13. Wendy M.

    OMG I love plaid. xD

  14. Catherine

    since it’s holiday… i’m predicting a lot of red and green plaid in the packaging!! although red/black would be cute and festive too!

  15. cherryglass

    Loved last year “Mirth & Mischief” but this could be MAJOR!

  16. Claire

    my college mascot is “the tartans”… strange I know… a mascot that is a pattern… but that makes me sooooo pumped for this collection!

  17. Avatar of Dini Dini

    That seems like an odd holiday theme. I hope the colors in the collection get as much attention as I’m thinking they will put into the packaging.

    • Wendy M.

      Well, looking at the promo picture, maybe we’d be getting great red lipsticks and eyeshadows in that dark blue and yellow? I know there’s Chrome Yellow eyeshadow, but maybe this one would be a Veluxe Pearl? lol just throwing ideas out there. :P

  18. Leenie

    I’ll have to wait to give my opinion on this collection, I have to see the colors in person or when you put up swatches of them, you do such a good job on your lighten when taking the pictures thanks Christine.

  19. Crystal

    I can’t wait for this collection. MAC is breaking me down this year; I’m gonna seriously have to cut back

  20. Lol, I find it so funny you are all so excited when all you’ve seen is a tiny picture of a model wearing some tartan clothes! :)

    I will only have an opinion on this once I’ve seen at least some product pictures, preferably swatches!

  21. Michelle

    YES — I am Scottis/Irish and love the plaids!! This is going to be amazing!!

  22. Rosa Napoleon

    I this this collection is going to be awesome. Last year I really enjoyed their holiday collection mainly because I so new the MAC, so I got all the quads, which I so love. I hope this collection have some quads.

  23. SB_sweetie

    aaaaaaaaaah! Looks very interesting. MAC keeps wiping me out with these collections….

  24. Cherie

    This will be awesome!!

  25. Tasmin

    I’m Scottish/Asian can’t wait for this collection!

  26. Halo

    MAC i continue to love/hate you everytime i think ive got enough money saved for a collection you pull out another one!!!!!!!!

  27. Judy

    Oh boy! Here we go again. A Tartan Tale (Chapters 1 & 2)? I can’t wait to see what this holiday collection will consist of.

  28. Avatar of Maggie Maggie

    I cant wait to see the product images for this collection!! so excited!

  29. Avatar of LH LH

    I read somewhere online here http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/mac-makeup/mac-a-tartan-tale/ suppose to be a mix of reds greens and blues. Cant wait to see if its true. Love blues and greens!

  30. oh my god!cant say a thing! they just blind me crazy!

  31. I am gonna be dying for this. Love plaid, love Tartan, love Fall colours and fashion, can’t wait every year to see the colours! This collection looks exciting.

  32. Jane

    I REALLY hope the packaging is like plaid or something. It’d be super cute!

  33. Kim-Mary

    Can’t wait!

  34. Tabitha

    Holy Scot! This sounds amazing. I’m hoping for a few plaid lipsticks. You know a bunch of interesting colors in plaid style so that outcome color will be unique & different. Hoping same with blush. No word yet on the names/colors of these items? Damn you mac!

  35. emily

    hey christine, i spoke to someone from mac today… i know that the alice + olivia pigment in later will be re-released in this collection…. yay! seeing as it pretty much sold out on the pre order (missed out damn!!)
    can you tell me what else is coming out in this collection???

  36. Ariel

    When do they usually release promo pics for October collections? I can’t wait!

  37. After the Villains collection I will be broke. :( Glad there will be a month in between it and the XMas Collection.

    I hope it is better than 2008 & 2009 Holiday collections. Those both disappointed me.

  38. Judy

    OMG! I just googled for some updated information on this collection and this is what I found: http://prettyaspeaches.blogspot.com/2010/07/mac-tartan-tale-holiday-collection.html
    Thanks to prettyaspeaches.com
    No pictures, but we get some names of the items. I’m soooooo excited for courting lilac lipstick. Hoping it’s an amplified creme and very lilacy.

  39. Kim-Mary

    Lipstick- Cut a Caper, Deepest Wish, The Faerie Glen, Courting Lilac, Full Fuschia
    Pigment- Later, The Family Crest, Moonlight Night

  41. Avatar of Chloe Chloe

    i think that there will be some good eyeshadow and blush colours with this collection – or i hope so ! :-p

  42. Avatar of Chloe Chloe

    i am hoping for greens( sassy grass ?) blues (zingy?) and reddy pink eyeshadow for this collection and a blush that will help give a frost bitten look for the chilly months

  43. Sarah

    im new to this, and might not want to find out….how much do you think this collection will cost? i want more makeup haha and i loooove the holiday season<33

  44. Lizzy

    Scots refer to themselves as… Scots. Scottish is just territory and food. It’s a Scots plaid and a Scots woman.

    Celts are a people who dominated most of Northern Europe for millenia. It’s also a whole outlook on the world that the Romish christians did their darndest to eradicate, i.e. women were clan leaders and owned property. That’s where the burning alive thing started. Ireland was a last hold out for said people; The Black Irish are the last of the breed as genetic grouping. Dark hair, pale skin, blue undertones.

    If you want to claim kinship, know what it is and what it’s called, OK?

    Solstice, later Christmas, was a time for tucking in for brutal winters. Wearing tartan, made of wool. And like most nights around fires it was a time for telling stories, most of the product names I’ve seen refer to the modern scraps of Celtic spiritual lore. So this is very appropriate for Holiday and about the dominant culture of Europe for most of it’s history. Not just plaid!

    Here’s hoping for prettier eye pallets than last years’ plastic jewel. I love those things! And I have a list of people who need a decent smoky eye set, so I’m wishing my for my shopping to be easy…

    And for pity’s sake MAC- Queen’s Sin! Please! It fits in well enough with Boudica. And if you don’t know who she was you should. Wiki her. You want fierce, I give you one of history’s great generals. A Celtic Woman.

      On SNL Mike Myers said “Scotch is drink, not a people!” Love him!

    • HH

      How can you make such a vast political statement here but then throw around phrases like “black irish”? That’s insulting.

      “Black Irish” is a relatively racist term to describe someone of Irish descent with dark hair or darker features who was believed to have descended from Spain. HOwever, this was proven to be a huge myth, as the majority of Ireland’s population is brown-haired. :) There is no such thing as black Irish. Genetic studies have been done and there is no difference between an irish person with dark hair or one with lighter hair. It’s ridiculous that people are still using these terms. Please put a stop to it.

      Also, the Celts did not dominate Northern Europe. They dominated the north western part of what is now collectively known as the British isles…but you’re forgetting the vikings, teutons, visigoths, and other tribes that lived in other parts of europe in the north as well.

      I appreciate that you’re trying to clear up some common misconceptions, but please try not to inadvertently spread other misconceptions as well. :)

  45. Judy

    Hi Christine, Still no info or pictures on this collection yet? Guess I’m getting a little impatient to see the stuff.

  46. Jane

    There’s a preview of two pigments on the Tartan Tale forum on specktra.net. Also, the blush “Her Blooming Cheek” is a very bright pink, and “My Highland Honey” blush is a peach shade. And apparently they’ll be selling a story book, and everything is tartan – including the brush bags.

    A photo of the lipstick “The Faerie Glen” was found on a Vogue UK site (http://cdni.condenast.co.uk/426×639/a_c/Beauty_WK_1.jpg)

  49. Freya

    Woah.
    I’m scottish.
    Mac, i didn’t think you could get any better,
    but you just did.

  50. Oh my goodness I love anything tartan and/or argyle patterned! I just may get suckered into getting a bunch of stuff from that collection.

  51. Cheyenne

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! I am SO not missing out on these brushes this year!! I CAN’T WAIT!!

    I’m jumping around :D

  52. Crystal S.

    This is the first time that packaging might play a role in what I buy…I am mega excited about this collection.

    On a side note, why do people keep buying these mini brush kits. The quality is comically bad

  53. Kathy

    This might be the best MAC packaging I’ve ever seen. It looks so classy!

  54. oh my goddddd they are BEAUTIFUL. there goes all my money

  55. I’m rather underwhelmed, having seen these images… Let’s hope the other half of the holiday collection is going to be more interesting…

  56. YES. i hate plaid. thank you MAC, for having mercy on my wallet.

  57. Kailey

    Oooh, do I se paint pots? If I do, I am going to be a VERY happy girl :))

  58. Avatar of LU LU

    OMFGZ! I’m saving up for this for sure, I definitely want those pigment collections!

  59. Thanks a lot Christine! I actually see a ton of stuff that I want! Oh boy! This is nooottttt good! I love allllll the colors!!!!!

  60. I think it looks horribly ugly. Really, WHAT’s with the bags?! And tin boxes …?! Where’s the luxe?
    I wish you hadn’t M.A.C., I honestly wish you hadn’t.

  61. Sharon

    I’m not really feeling the plaid, but I want the brush sets and eyeshadow palettes, as long as the handles are made from plastic like last year!

    Oh, Dear God . . .

  63. Wilcoa

    Beyond excited about this!!!! Can’t wait to hear more :D Thanks so much for posting this.

  64. Dawn

    I’m loving the brush sets, but that’s about it so far. The eyeshadow sets look very bland and dull for a holiday collection. I’m looking forward to seeing the whole collection when more info comes available and hopefully there will be more to excite me!

  65. Avatar of Dawn Dawn

    McMAC, anyone?

  66. Lily

    Oh, my god. This is the hugest collection ever. How I am supposed to get enough money to get all of this?
    UGH. THIS SUCKS. BUT I LOVE THE COLLECTION.

  67. KC

    MAC you slay me! Those brush sets bags are on! The six colour eyeshadows look great, the little sets look great for gifts. Okay I am done after villians. Got to save for this one.

  68. mandy

    I was wondering when the pics would come out! Sooooooo excited for this collection!!!

  69. Sharon

  72. Haley

  73. Judy

    I’m more of a Nars junkie but in honor of my love for the Outlander series (with Kevin McKidd in the lead) I may set aside some shelf space for this collection. It could be a lovely start to a potential Mac addiction. YAY!

  83. Anna

    GORGEOUS! Can you say Christmas wishlist?!

  84. Ew all that plaid is very overwhelming… It doesn’t look very modern & chic… Perhaps it’s too many colors of plaid…
