A Tartan Haul

Hahaa, finally, Tartan!

I didn't really wait this collection, but I ended up hauling quite much :3
My original plan was to get only the pigments, but I got interested in one of the palettes, and ended up getting two more pearlglides as well.

  • Moonlight Night
  • Later.
  • The Family Crest
  • Beauties Play It Cool
Pearlglide Pencils:
  • Black Line
  • Petrol Blue
  • (Undercurrent)
Misc (these were ordered from
  • Tartan bag
  • Zoom Lash mascara

Let's start with the palette, 6 Beauties Play It Cool :

First the packaging:

Then the colors:
Silverwear, Hold My Gaze, To The Ball
Altered State, Magic Moor, Heather Belles

Then swatches:

My favourites:
Hold My Gaze. OMFG. I love it. It's gray and golden, sorta platinum shade. Love!
To the Ball is also really awesome, true matte (well, SATIN) , but still really pigmented. I guess this is taupe?
Silverwear is great highlighter for coller looks.
Heather Belles is really slightly shimmery grayish black, great one to deepen looks.

Swatches on lid:

One more thing about the palette.
The "brush" that came with the palette:
"China" is the only thing it says. Doesn't really make me thrust it :3

Then the pencils:

I owned Undercurrent already, but since it's part of Tartan collection, I swatched that one too:

Pure awesomeness. They last great, are supersoft and look amazing. What else can you ask?

Then the pigments:

Funny enough, these were the things I wanted the most, but the one that really won me over was the palette :D

I mean, these nothing wrong with these, the all are really awesome:
I especially love The Family Crest!

Here's some looks I've done with these:

Hold My Gaze + The Family Crest

Construtivist paint pot + The Family Crest + Black Line

Undercurrent + Moonlight Night

Undercurrent + Partylicious + If  It Sparkes.. + Later + Petrol Blue + MUFE 12L pencil on waterline


  1. Crap, makes me wish I did pick up Family Crest! I kept hoping part of the collection had my Fraser tartan pattern :D It's ugly as hell but it would have been sweet!

  2. Great post! You do the best swatches :) I got undercurrant, it's the most amazing thing ever!!! :D

  3. I managed to convince myself not to get that palette but you have convinced me back! Did you apply the swatches on top of a base? If so, what base did you use?

  4. Sugarbumpkin, I used only moisturizer / foundation :)

  7. Pigment Later is really awesome!!!

  8. Wow! Swatches on the eyes are awesome! Hope you will do that more!

  9. The liners are gorgeous, and I actually like the look of the pigments - from other swatches I saw I thought they were too dark for my liking, but I love how they look in your swatches.

    Love the eye swatches too, they're *really* helpful ^__^

  10. "Hold my gaze" works exactly as promised...
    Thanks for the swatches!
