When I'm Sad I...

BUY PIGMENTS!

Okay, well I'm not sad, just very bored! My daughter fell asleep early, all of my housework is finished, my boyfriend is busy making furniture. There's just nothing to do! Okay, okay, in all fairness my days are always hectic. Even as a stay at home mom. I rarely get to sit, there's always something to be done or someone who needs me. That's not a complaint, I love it! It's just that when I finally get that 'me' time, I don't know what to do with myself! 

So, I started thinking about how MAC released the Tartan Tale Chapter 2 pigment sets this past week and I really wanted the 'Smoky Thrillseekers' set. Or so I thought, anyway. I started to look at swatches on Temptalia of all three sets to make sure that's what I really wanted. Then I began to have second thoughts when I saw 'Dark Soul' and ' Blue Brown'. When I look at Dark Soul, I immediately picture more of the pigment on my face versus my eye due to fall out. When I look at Blue Brown, I can't help but to think that it'll look like I got punched in the eye. In this set, Jigs and Jive is the only color that is LE and new. The rest are permanent. I only truly appreciate two of the five colors (not big on the Reflects Blackened Red either). Skip!

And skipping over the 'Cool Thrillseekers' set as well...

But! But! But! I adore the 'Warm Thrillseekers' set. This is what I ordered tonight and I'm sure I won't be regretting it either. These colors look like versatile and very wearable, yet the Gilded Green color adds some fun to the mix. The Reflects Bronze is really pretty and very holiday-esque, if you ask me.

So this is how my Saturday night is going so far. Not bad, but not glamorous either! I hope your weekend is more exciting than mine! Have you gotten anything from A Tartan Tale yet? Do you plan on getting anything?

I never used to like pigments either because they take getting used to but they're pretty nice! I really liked this set the best.

I am a pigment fan. I have found several merchants on FB that sell pigments that are just as wearable/pigmented as MAC pigments but for only 2-4$ for 5g jars so I have a pretty good collection so far!
