The Archie’s Girls collection is made up of two sets of colours. One side is for all of the “Bettys”, and the other for “Veronicas”. The Betty colours were neutral with lots of browns, pinks and corals. Her brunette counterpart’s colours were deeper and more vibrant red and purples.
(colour names listed from top to bottom)
Top – Betty lipsticks – Betty Bright, Oh Oh Oh, Girl Next Door
Bottom- Veronica lipsticks – Ronnie Red, Daddy’s Little Girl, Boyfriend Stealer
We have to say, we did not instantly see any colours in this line and get that “had to have” feeling we are all too familiar when it comes to MAC products. In fact, most of them would not have been flattering on our skin tones. I guess we may have to wait for the Nancy collection. We did however, fall in love with the Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Designer Purple. It goes on like butter and apparently wears for 9 hours. Ash was sold. And seeing as neither of us could pull off any of the Betty shades, after a bit of contemplation Chris settled on Veronica’s “Boyfriend stealer” lipstick.
With our purchases, we were given cute little tins of cinnamon hearts for the road. If for nothing else, the packaging is very cute. But for us the highlight of the evening was definitely meeting Archie though, we won’t lie.
MAC did a great job of taking a classic icons like the Archie characters and making them modern. The event was fun and we are so glad to have attended. If you have your eye on any of the Archie’s Girls products, act now as MAC limited edition collections sell out quickly!
