MAC Tartan Tale: ‘Tis Noble to Give Viva Glam Lip Bag

This year’s Viva Glam item is ‘Tis Noble to Give Viva Glam Lip Bag ($36.00), which includes full-sizes of Viva Glam V (lipstick) and Viva Glam V (lipglass), both described as a “neutral pink with pearl.” The set comes with a red-dominated tartan-patterened bag, the same as in the other Lip Bags (just a bit bigger than my hand).

MAC Tartan Tale: Happily Ever After Lip Kit

Happily Ever After Lip Kit ($22.50) is a trio of lip products, featuring one sheer lipglass and two lipsticks. This is a very pink-themed lip palette that does run a bit cool-toned, but it’s very wearable for both cool and warm skin tones.  Lip palettes tend to be a hate it or love it kind of product; either you love the utility and portability of them or find them impractical and frustrating. I belong to the latter camp, so I’ve always leaned towards MAC’s Lip Bags during the holidays!

A Fabulous Fantasy Lip Kit ($22.50) is a trio of lip products, featuring one sheer lipglass and two lipsticks.  There’s a nice variety in the finishes, and they do seem to coordinate well–they are all a touch on the warm side, but not too warm.  Lip palettes tend to be a hate it or love it kind of product; either you love the utility and portability of them or find them impractical and frustrating.  I belong to the latter camp, so I’ve always leaned towards MAC’s Lip Bags during the holidays!

Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules Face Palette

Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules Face Palette ($45.00) has me at odds! I do and don’t like this palette. I do LOVE the new and exclusive Pot Rouge shades to this palette. I also adore the packaging–I just think it’s cute and fits so well with the theme. I absolutely do not like the eyeshadows included in the palette, and I really disliked both of the sparkle eyeshadows.
