Preview & Swatches: The MAC Archie’s Girls Collection

February 25, 2013

On Friday, I attended the preview launch of MAC‘s newest collection, Archie’s Girls. I hadn’t expected to come away with anything, especially since I’d been shopping for work quite a bit the past few days. However, I couldn’t resist and ended up buying a lippie! Everything in this collection is labelled either a Betty or a Veronica, and if you, like me, are familiar with the comic series, you’d kind of know what image these two girls portray. Betty is the blonde, who’s sweet and nice, while Veronica is the brunette, who’s mysterious, rich and spoilt. Check out what went on during the event, product pictures and swatches!

We were a bit slow. Some of the pigments had already been taken off the display and ooh-ed at!

I had so much fun at the preview event! The Betty Bright lippie was so popular that it was sold out even before the event ended! I’d say it’s a peach/salmon undertoned pink that suits all Asian skin tones perfectly.

 

So are you a Betty or Veronica?
