MAC A Tartan Tale Collection: Viva Glam for Holiday 2010

U.S./Canada Launch Date: October 28th, 2010
International Launch Date: November 2010

For all the Bravehearts and beautiful souls that keep the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund flowing, we say, ’Tis Noble to Give… and with every purchase of this gorgeous, grandiloquent world-clan collectible, you are helping to keep the coffers confident – because every cent from every M∙A∙C VIVA GLAM purchase always goes directly to the women, men and kids affected by HIV/AIDS everywhere. It’s our heritage, our proud moment…and yours too. Keep the VIVA GLAM clan alive and thriving!

‘Tis Noble to Give Viva Glam Lip Bag ($36.00 U.S. / $43.50 CDN) (Limited Edition)

  • Viva Glam V Lipstick Neutral pink with pearl
  • Viva Glam V Lipglass Neutral pink with pearl

This go ’round, our special project for Kids Helping Kids is all about what happens when Teddy Boys meet Fuzzy Bears! M∙A∙C Sir Teddy has been officially knighted as the international symbol of KHK, at the pleasure of Her M∙A∙C Majesty! Squeezable, laughably lovable Sir Teddy comes in two versions: A too-cute tartan key clip that makes you smile every time you “turn it on.” Or go plush: A clan-tastic “collage” cuddly doll that you want to hug till it hurts! All part of the big plan, getting bigger every year: M∙A∙C’s Kids Helping Kids is a tale we’re thrilled to tell over and over.

Sir Teddy ($15.00 U.S. / $18.00 CDN) (Limited Edition)

Sir Teddy (with clip) ($12.00 U.S. / $14.50 CDN) (Limited Edition)

We asked our extraordinary kids everywhere to tell their own Tartan Tales, and the results are more artful, abstract and inventive than anything the international art world could have come up with…and quite a bit less complicated! These cards, created by kids affected by HIV/AIDS, are so full of calamitous charisma, bold bravado, tartan tenacity…they’re teeming with optimism and individuality! You’ll treasure them, every one a masterpiece, just as much as we do… with all proceeds going to the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund. Good for giving all year ’round!

6 Kids Helping Kids Cards ($8.00 U.S. / $10.00 CDN) (Limited Edition)

12 Kids Helping Kids Gift Cards ($8.00 U.S. / $10.00 CDN) (Limited Edition)

    I’m loving this… The teddy is adorable, the cards are so sweet (I adore the one with the black teddy on it!). The lip products in the gorgeous bag look good, too- I can’t wait to see swatches of those, as I can’t really imagine what they would look like on.

  9. hehe I love the fact that I have a good excuse to buy this Sir Teddy ! So darn cute, I need him hahaha
    I might just have to buy the lipstick and lipglass combo, when it’s for charity, you don’t count 😛

  11. Princessflttrby

    Hi! I’ve been lurking around here for a few weeks now. I don’t own much MAC stuff, but this collection is amazing! That packaging! Those colours! But I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to get them until after the holidays when I have more money in my pocket, how long does the holiday stuff usually stick around? Is it gone in a matter of days like Venemous Villians or is stock less limited? I need to know if I should try to get my hands on some cash and spring the day they come out, or if I can hold off for a bit. 😉

    • I haven’t seen holiday launches sell out very quickly in the past years, though not a guarantee it won’t happen – but you should be okay to wait a bit!

  13. shayna

  14. Aleksandra

  26. Angelina

  27. Michelle

  28. Ahhh I want the bear!!! And the Clip so I can hook it to my keys.

  29. I picked the the Viva Glam lip bag and will be picking up the teddies too.

  30. Liliane

    The key ring bear is not available here so I just got the “big” teddy, which is not that big at all – but very cute and very nice quality. The colours are awesome – a very adult version of the classic teddy, almost Westwood-ish. So I actually bought it for myself, maybe I’ll give it away eventually, but probably only to my future children – it’s just too cute.

  31. Lisa

    I can not beleive Sir teddy is only $15 dollars in the U.S it is $48 dollars here in australia! aghhhh!!

  32. Eli

    How can i purchase a SIR TEDDY? I live in North Carolina, USA
