M·A·C A Tartan Tale Brush Bags for Holiday 2010

We all know M·A·C makes rave-worthy makeup brushes. Now, with A Tartan Tale, you can purchase limited-edition brush sets in gorgeous tartan plaid fabric bags! How good does it get? It appears to be fairy tale week at Best Things in Beauty. Here's another cute one.

Once upon a time, a bonny lass was in a Scottish ska band. She couldn't just pick one look - punk or princess? So she chose them all...fancy that (I feel like the bonny lass!). Her loot? The Lip, Eye, and Brush Bags from A Tartan Tale, at M·A·C for every girl who wants to arrive at the ball in flawless fashion, with everything she needs in nifty, handsome, heathery tartan modern mash-ups, trimmed in shiny patent. Throw on your favorite tartan frock (knickers optional) and off you go, perfectly ready to raise a ruckus!

Know what a ska band is? I didn't! Ska is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s and was the precursor to reggae. Ska combined elements of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and R&B. It is characterized by a walking bass line accented with rhythms on the upbeat. Who knew? Did you?

This bonny lass bought all three of the brush bags! That's what I do when I can't make up my mind and I'm afraid an item will sell out. Each is priced at $49.50; they are great value sets.
These sets give you great brushes in pretty tartan bags, embellished with a gold heraldic crest and metal rivets. The bags have patent leather clip-on shoulder straps for those who want to use them as little handbags. They are the perfect size to use as purses when you only need your cell phone and a few other items. They also make great makeup bags. Each collection comes in a tartan box too.

It's love!

You can purchase A Tartan Tale at M∙A∙C online, M∙A∙C stores, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale's. There are good reasons for this collection to sell out.

as much as i love mac brushes - and i do - i was quite disappointed with the quality of the tartan range. perhaps it was just my set? but it was definitely not as soft as full size and other travel size brushes i've used before.

Faye, that's a bummer! Now you have me curious. I am going to pull out the brushes I got last November - and haven't used yet - to see if there's a difference.
