Mac A Tartan Tale Colour Descriptions and more pics!

My family Tartan (Green Hunting)- Image from
As you can see above, I'm Scottish and proud of it, so when I found out about the Mac A Tartan Tale collection I went a little nutty. My first post here gives some swatches and a peak at some pictures of the collection, but today (after impatiently waiting for months!) I've got descriptions of the entire collection for you! (As well as couple comparison pictures)

Firstly here's the Mac descriptions of the items. From what I know, the holiday collection will be released in two parts, with the individual items being released late October and the sets (excluding the 5 nail/gloss/pigment/glitter) in November. All items in the holiday collections are the same quality as the regular line, except for the brushes, which are machine made instead of hand-made. I've added * next to the items I'm really looking forward to, just for interests sake :D Much thanks to purplerinne on Specktra for all the colour information! I've now got colour info on the lipgloss, pigment and nail polish mini sets! (as of 2:05 pm EST Sept. 28th) Thanks to erine1881 on Specktra for information!
