Two Ways to Win a MAC Tartan Tale A Lady & Her Tricks Buff & Line Brush Collection Set

Published in: Just For Fun

WINNER: The giveaway is closed now, and the winner is Nikki! Congratulations, Nikki! If you entered but didn’t win this time around, keep trying, and click here to enter any ongoing giveaways before you jet. πŸ™‚


So how was your Thanksgiving, young lady? Lots of good food and conversation, I hope.

Ours was an overeaters’s paradise punctuated by mounds of turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, with gravy cascading down it all like a waterfall of YUM! It was a magic carpet ride down a tryptophan dream piloted by my mother-in-law, and she did a delicious job. I’ll be recovering from, and trying to work off, the calories for weeks.

Unless I figure out how to cast a magic makeup slimming spell…

I mean, it’s possible, right? After all, a lady casts spells with light and color like a magician wows the stage — assuming, of course, that she has the right tools for the job.

Like any good illusionist, a lady can never have too many tricks (or brushes) up her sleeve, but the lady doesn’t rely on trick mirrors, marked cards, trap doors and coins with two tails. Her props are tools like the brushes in the limited edition MAC Tartan Tale A Lady & Her Tricks Buff & Line Brush Collection ($49.50).

Which reminds me, are you ready for another giveaway? πŸ™‚

You could take your show on the road with this prize. It’s a kit with a studded plaid bag containing travel-sized versions of MAC’s 168 Angled Contour Brush, 187 Duo Fibre Brush, 209 Eye Liner Brush, 219 Pencil Brush and the 242 Shader Brush.

    Our luck for cars this year just sucks. Lets hope this is the last time for awhile that anything needs fixed.

    Also I got my $130 work shoes for $77 thanks to a black friday sale. woo.

  2. Vassileia says:

    I was at MAC the other day…and I’d forgotten my money at home. Is it bad that I literally cried?

    Well okay, that was quite random. πŸ™‚

  3. Johanna says:

    So random but my padres dog lives wearing plaid dough sweaters!!

  4. Meg says:

    This would be the perfect set to keep in my purse! I heart plaid.

  5. marisol says:

    My favorite brush right now would be my MAC 187.

  6. Nina says:

    Can I just say that the ghd flat iron is the best flat iron I’ve ever used? Ugh no flat iron ever made my hair this straight and shiny. LOL I need to stop gushing about it but seriously I’m impressed!

    My favorite beauty tool is a barrel brush hair dryer from Wigo with a retractable brush — gives my fine hair volume and never tangles. Works equally well on my mother’s super-thick hair.

  10. Steffi says:

    Just yesterday I bought The Balm – Hot Mama and Elizabeth Arden brown gel eyeliner really cheap and that made my week πŸ™‚

  18. Anna says:

    Enter me please πŸ˜€

  23. Diana says:

    MAC Tartan Tale makes me want to wear a kilt… and dance around to bagpipes. However, I would settle for less public embarrassment and take the brushes, if given the chance πŸ™‚

  24. MaryAnne says:

    The best brush I ever bought was an eyeshadow bursh from covergirl. It was cheap and I still use it constantly. But new brushes definitely are worth trying.

  67. Kimber Y. says:

    I had a very un-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving meal! My family doesn’t like turkey (I, on the otherhand, can ravage one easily!) so they opted for a BBQ meal of a plethora of different meats – just not turkey. I did miss turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes, but beggars can’t be choosers! Still, it was good times πŸ™‚

  89. Mari Ohira says:

    I’d love to win, since I’ve got very few brushes…. and this set handsomely fits the bill!^^

  90. My all time favorite brush was the one I bought from Avon a few years ago. It was a simple blender brush by Mark. and sooo affordable. It was one of my first makeup brushes and it made such a drastic change to my makeup experience. I lost it a few years ago, but I still consider it a fav because it was the brush that turned me onto using brushes! Now I can’t imagine a world without them :3

  111. Saffron says:

    Awesome giveaway, thanks!

    I went black friday shopping for the first time in my life this AM – we had a bout of bad weather and it was the first time I left the house in 3 days, much to my relief. I had a great time, but no place I went was crowded and the staff were mostly chipper considering the early wakeup. I spent $200 at petsmart cause yeah, I am deeply committed to being a crazy cat lady.

  112. stéphaniefrance says:

    My HG eye shadow brush is the Shu Uemura angled natural 8hr. It costs a leg but it is PERFECT to blend the shadows and the bristles are so soft. I love it more than the Mac ones.

  113. Gail says:

    Did I already comment on this? Must be tired – LOL

  114. Sarah says:

    These brushes look amazing. I have a Bobbi Brown eyeliner brush that I’m using a lot right now.

See? Totally GOOD reasons for me to win these!

    Oh, I have to tell someone this. We officially have the strangest cat in the world! Snowy sat on our bed while the turkey was cooking, totally uninterested, and eventually came down and meowed for food. Expecting this, we happily made her a little plate of well-minced, fresh-roasted turkey (the stuff her parents ate like pigs) and put it down at her feet. “Happy Thanksgiving,” right?! Wrong. Snowy licked the gravy off, and then walked away, now she’s meowing like we’re starving her to death. Whatever…I give up.

  220. Britany B. says:

    My magic trick:
    To keep your face from looking like a Panda. 1.Swipe a Q-tip along your water line to get rid of access moisture. 2. Then use your eyeliner of choice 3. followed by an eyeshadow of the same color to set it. And PRESTO! Your eyeliner won’t run! πŸ™‚

Your blog has brightened many a dark day for me and since we’re in the holiday season, I thought it would be most fitting to tell you how much I appreciate your warmth and generosity..

    Hi Karen,
    I’ve been in “read only” mode so far (for like… almost a year I guess), but I thought it would be high time I started commenting :). I’m from Hungary and I’m a university student with a way too low budget, so I follow your blog for the looks and make-up tricks (and occasionally to drool over stuff which I can’t get hold of here or which I can’t afford :D)…
    And about plaid… I like plaid, but I’m not a big fan of it-I like striped and polka dot patterns better… although I do love plaid in cowgirl-style blouses and those cute little “school uniform” type of skirts :).

    Aloha, K. Just discovered MBB and thoroughly enjoy it. From one make-up addict to another I’m duly impressed by your dedication. Being in Hawaii & actually keeping up with us each day! Wow, lov’in the ‘tude, girl. BTW, we could have hosted Tabs for Thanksgiving in case you left him behind – we had fish . . . sword & salmon . . . not a feather in sight .

    i have a birthmark on my foot that changes color depending on the temperature. it’s no good for predicting the weather, but if i’m ever in doubt about how cold or hot i am, i can just look down at my toes for confirmation!

    Thanks for writing the best blog evah!

  320. Melisa says:

    I haven’t found my favorite makeup brushes πŸ™

    No sigma brand in here too T_T

    Hi Karen,
    I noticed you mention NYX a lot in your posts and I was in the mall the other day and saw some pigment nyx eyeshadows for barely $2 each, so I ended picking up a few and I love them! They really show up on my skin and I love the colors!

  325. Amber says:

    Oooh I’ve been a good girl this year (well, mostly) and this would be so so so awesome to win to use in time for a cute Christmas makeup look and some New Year’s parties! Thanks Karen!

  330. L says:

  337. irini says:

  338. Dini says:

    I actually just got the ecotools mini minerals brush set. Not bad. Especially the eyeshadow brush, it can really pack the shadow on. Too bad I cant get it easily in Malaysia!

  339. Aly K says:

    OMG such a great contest!!! I’ve been DYING to try out MAC brushes forever

  340. Subrina says:

    I’ve never owned anything MAC. A travesty, but then again, I’m hoping that Santa (or my boss) will be good this year and give me a nice hefty raise πŸ˜‰

  341. Farah says:

    I’ve always wanted Mac brushes! especially one for gel liner!

  342. Susan says:

    I think I’m obsessed with cranberry sauce! I made the whole-berry kind with orange zest and walnut pieces–it’s so addictively good that I’m just looking for things to schmear it on. πŸ˜‰
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! [& Tabs of course!] πŸ˜‰

  343. Juste says:

    I have two Dior brushes foundation and powder. They’re quiet good, but I’d love to try MAC bruches too bad that there, in Lithuania we don’t have MAC products.

  344. Carla says:

    What’s your favorite thing about the holidays?

  345. Liss says:

    I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy your posts and all the things I learn by reading your blog! Have nice holidays!!

  346. Virginia says:

    My favorite makeup brush is my Trish 2B blush brush. It’s so soft, but perfect for just a bit of blush.

  347. Lindsey says:

    Oooooh, I really wanted this brush kit and one of the pigment sets from Tartan Tale. Hope I win!

  348. Nicole says:

    I am just getting ready to head home from my thanksgiving celebration. Turkey, family, and a trip to the movies. It was a good time that I am sad to leave today. Also, not too excited about the winter road conditions we have to battle today. Thanks for entering me!

  349. Liz says:

    My dishwasher has been running almost continuously since early Thursday morning. I feel like I am single-handedly depleting California’s water table! It was worth it, though: delish dinner on turkey day and a fridge full of leftovers are making me a happy girl!

    I’ve been searching for a good intro brush set to give to my mom. She’s applied makeup with sponges her whole life and it’s time that she upgraded!

  351. Julbra says:

    My favorite makeup brush is the MAC 224 its very versatile and fluffy πŸ˜€

  352. Hannah says:

    Here is a simple trick since all you need is a coin (it mainly works on little kids and stupid adults/teens): Sit at a table and tell your “audience” to hand you a coin, any coin. Let your audience know that you will be rubbing the coin on your elbow to make it disappear. Rub the coin on your left elbow. Drop the coin on the table, letting your audience know that it doesnÒ€ℒt seem to be working well with that elbow, so you will try rubbing it on your other elbow. Pick the coin up with your right hand and pretend to place it in your left hand. Put your right hand (with the coin) up by your ear and rub your left hand (that is supposed to be holding the coin, according to your audience) on your elbow. Then go up to an audience member and pretend that the coin came out of their ear.

  353. Heather says:

    The 219 brush as been on the top of my brush wishlist for a while now and I have been wanting the angled brush too!!

  354. Katrina says:

    Glad it’s not too late to enter!!!

  355. Alice says:

    Just bought my first MAC purchase this weekend! (Paint in Untitled) I hope it’s the eyeshadow base I’ve been dreaming of!

  356. Nicole says:

    Now that I live in Australia, I’ve been finding that makeup here is so much more expensive. I didn’t realize how great the prices are back in the States. With that said, I’ve definitely been eyeing this new collection whenever I walk into Myer or David Jones.

    I think you should definitely look into KIT; it’s a local makeup company here and they sell a lot of different brands. It’s a smaller scale Sephora. Mecca Cosmetica has been fun to peruse too.

  357. Marisa says:

    Another great giveaway! I really want this brush set πŸ™‚

  358. Inez says:

    today i painted my toenails the color here today aragon tomorrow by opi. its supposed to be a dark green but its sooo dark you cant even tell its green anymore :/ *sigh* oh well hope i win!
