Product Roundup: MAC’s Archie’s Girls Limited Edition

February 7th, 2013 marks the official launch of MAC’s Archie’s Girls limited edition line to stores and counters (worldwide release comes in March)

These are two of my favorite things of all time blended into one! I can’t even describe to you how excited I was when I read online during San Diego ComicCon that Archie artist and writer, Dan Parent, was at a MAC store to announce the line. I was a giddy school girl that day!

So I thought I’d introduce you lovely readers to the items in the line.

This collection is divided into 3.
A small accessory collection and two large product collections. A Betty side and a Veronica side and just like in the comics, both the Betty and Veronica sides are completely different from one another. Each side has 16 products.

The Betty side is sweet pinks and corals. Lustres and satins. Soft and romantic.
The Veronica side is bold and rich. Deep navys and royal purples. Matte’s and cremesheens. Sultry and sexy.

When you blend these two lines together you get the best of both worlds!
I love the Betty shadows with the Veronica lips.
The Veronica polishes as accents to the soft tones of Betty polishes.

It really is a well put together collection as a whole.

In this product roundup I’ve pulled all the information from the MAC website for descriptions. I pulled these images from the web as I don’t own all of the collection.

I’ll be posing a review shortly on my thoughts of the collection. Stay Tuned.

xxoo, Angela
