My first Mac brushes!

I've been wanting Mac brushes for like ever but always end up spending money on other makeup so i don't have enough for the pricey brushes that Mac has to offer. So my darling boy surprised me for my birthday and sent me this limited edition set of travel sized brushes from the Holiday A Tartan Tale collection. Kudos to guys that go to Mac for their girlfriends seriously LOL!
This particular set is called "A Lady & Her Tricks Buff & Line Brush Collection" and it contains a total of five limited edition brushes including the 168SE, 187SE, 209SE, 219SE and 252SE. They all come with a super cute satchel thats green/blue and had plaid design with heraldic crest and metal rivets. It's perfect for traveling i love it! 
I'm really lovin the quality of all the brushes and i've been using them every single day. The 187SE is my new best friend and makes foundation applycation so flawless and easy i love it. It did shed a bit at the first, like all new brushes do when their new, but nonetheless im madly in love.
Did you pick favorites from this collection?


  1. Too bad MAC special edition brushes are not the same quality as the full size brushes. The full sized ones are handmade, while these sets and special edition short handled ones are manufactured. I got this too, just because I thought they were adorable! Especially since they are GOLD. I makes them look more luxe :P

  2. ive got the same brushes from mac special edition a few years ago. love them, they have lasted a very long time and work great!
