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).

  • Viva Glam V (lipstick) is a pinky nude-brown with soft champagne shimmer. It’s semi-sheer on lips, and it’s incredibly flattering. This is the kind of shade that looks good on both warmer and cooler skin tones.
  • Viva Glam V (lipglass) is a peachy nude with soft golden shimmer. It has a milky quality to it, and it’s not nearly as pink as its lipstick counterpart. This is warmer, but I don’t think it’s unduly warm that it wouldn’t work on cooler skin tones.

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!
