Tartan Tale Swatches

Much much sooner than anticipated I've got the first swatches for you for the Mac Tartan Tale collection! As well as a new model photo, and her look. This holiday collection will be released in two parts, the first part (as defined in my previous Tartan Tale post) will be out in stores in the USA and Canada October 28th and the second part November 4th. For the rest of the world, I've been told the release is November for the first half, and December for the second. I want to give a HUGE thank-you to erine1881 on Specktra for providing these, and the time you took to get them. Thank-you!
First up, and skipping over my rambling, is what you've been waiting for. Swatches. :D

The Lipsticks:
 The Dazzleglass Creams:
 The Tartan Print Eyeshadows:
 The Peralglide eyeliners:

 The Blushes:

Note, of course that colours on everyone's computer screens differ slightly and these are pictures of swatches so in real life they may appear slightly differently but that is true of all swatches seen online. I can't wait to see these in real life! I'm particularly excited for My Highland Honey Blush, The Family Crest pigment, Glamora Castle, Semi-Precious, Enviably Fun, and Golden Crown eyeshadows, and Courting Lilac lipstick. What is everyone liking the looks of so far based on the swatches?
erine1881 tells me that the eyeshadows are really silky-creamy soft (but powder, not an actual cream!) and that the Courting Lilac lipstick will be different on everyone as it's a glaze and therefore sheer and subject to change depending on how pigmented your natural lips are.

That's it for now! As it is 12:30 a.m. here, I feel the need to sleep so I can study for my upcoming midterm and finish a paper due next week. Please PLEASE spare the time to vote in the poll! Even if this is your first time on the blog just vote for the type of post you came to visit. I want this place to be as useful as possible for everyone! Thanks for reading!
