Now that I'm back to reality after a quick trip up to Brisbane to celebrate (or not) my 20th high school reunion, it's time to do some more swatching and reviews. I figured I'd just lump all the MAC from that day into one giant swatch fest. I guess some of these items were probably limited edition MAC collections, but MAC also has a reputation for using some new colours and some re-promotes in their collections so I kind of figured that some of these swatches may be valid for people looking for images of certain colours.
First up I have the Tartan Tale Warm thrillseekers set, Tartan tale was definitely a limited edition collection but I'm unsure if the shades in it were limited or not. I wont bother with images of the tartan box it came in seeing as you probably can't get it anymore anyway. The set contained 5 mini sized pigments each holding 2.5 gms of product, which to me looks to be similar to the sizes of the NYX pearls pots without hunting them down to check.
The colours in this set are
Gilded Green - cool medium toned green
Most Darling - semi matte, not as shimmery as the others, almost milk chocolate brown
Gold Mode -mid toned shimmery golden brown, almost a shimmer version of Most darling
Gifts O' Glamour - Medium shimmery antiqued rose pink ( very pretty)
Reflects Bronze - this is one of the straight eye safe glitter pigments, personally I wouldn't waste my money buying MAC for those just about any brand has straight glitters at half the price, plus be warned you'll need a super sticky base for these to work on the eyes

The colours in this set are in order, top row - left to right
Cool Enchantment (Frost) this is an intriguing colour, while it looks nude, it has a great gold tone to it, but when it hits sunlight it almost has a cool grayish blue undertone as well, very interesting!,
Blue enchantment - (satin) mid toned turquoise blue
Deep secret - ( frost) deep blackish blue
SHHH don't tell - (satin) pale pinkish nude
Rose potion - ( Veluxe pearl) mid to pale rose pink
Violet vow - ( satin ) dark pinky / purpley taupe tone
|Cool Incantation, Blue enchantment, deep secret, Shhh don't tell, Rose potion and Violet Vow|
Next the Devil May dare palette from the same collection as the one above, and it has the same issues with colour and intensity.
Oh my Darling - ( frost) true pale nude tone
Dare Ya - ( veluxe pearl) pale nude pink
Sorcery - (satin) deep rosey purple
Gold tease - ( frost) shimmery bronzey gold
Prankster - ( veluxe pearl) cool toned olive green
Devilishly dark - ( frost) shimmery brown with gold highlights
|Oh my darling, Dare Ya, Sorcery, gold tease, Prankster, Devilishly Dark|
Then last but not least a super pretty mineralize blush in Rhapsody in Two. It's a gorgeous golden peach shade This is one of the blushes that has the 2 colours swirled but separated in the pan, one colour is a pale pink and the other is a pale gold. On my skin it can't be called a blush as it doesn't give enough colour but is a super pretty highlighter shade. I should imagine gals with paler skin tones might be able to use this more as a blush as it's intended to be.
