MAC Archie’s Girls Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Archie's Girls Lipstick Spring 2013

MAC Archie's Girls Lipsticks

LOVING two of the MAC Archie’s Girl Lipsticks that I got my hands on this week. Lipsticks a plenty around here but I can always use more and these two shades are must haves in my opinion.

Which shades do you have your eye on from the MAC Archie’s Girls Collection?

As for me, the winner goes to Oh, Oh, Oh and Ronnie Red. The lipsticks come in a white tube and feature printed Betty or Veronica faces on each. MAC thankfully didn’t use stickers in the art’s creation so thankfully these won’t peel off.

It’s funny that I ended up liking a Betty shade and a Veronica one as I thought for sure I’d prefer Betty’s lighter shades but Veronica has her share of lovely bolds.

MAC Ronnie Red is a bright matte red. I’d never know it was matte to be honest as the color has a creamy texture and finish versus a drying matte one. Color is true to tube with a creamy formula that applies easily onto lips and leaves behind full color coverage. The shade is bold, dramatic, and pops non stop on my lips. The brighter shade appears blue based but has a warmer finish on my mouth. I like this shade almost as much as I loved the Marilyn reds. It wears very strong throughout the day and fades at around hour five to a reddish flush on my mouth.

Oh, Oh, Oh is a Lustre finish with a hint of a sheen and again, an excellent pigmentation. Although sheerer at first application it builds easily to a fuller pigmented pount. The color is a brownish plum with a bit of rosiness on due to my lip’s natural pigmentation. For some reason the color very so slightly reminds me of Chanel’s Captivante. I can see myself getting a ton of use out of the color. It wears very comfortably as well, with a light buttery feel on my lips.

  • 2/5/13 20:45 jen_m_sunshine:

    Just got my shipping notice that oh, oh, oh is on its way! Super excited about this color as different for me! Not really into the whole archie thing but cute packaging I guess. At least I will be able to find the white case easier in my purse!


    • 2/6/13 9:19 the Muse:

      yay jen! so glad to hear it ;-D


  • 2/6/13 11:42 Jessica:

    I missed Ronnie Red when it went online, so the only thing I got was Boyfriend Stealer. I thought that was a good thing (do I really need another red?) but part of me wants to swing by a counter tomorrow and see if it’s anything like NYX Electra, which is my favorite red but the formula isn’t too great. It looks amazing on you (as does Oh Oh Oh)!


    • 2/6/13 11:45 the Muse:

      aw thanks jessica! I don’t actually own electra, otherwise I’d happily compare ;-D but now you have me curious to go look it up for myself ;D


      • 2/7/13 20:49 Jessica:

        My local counter (in the middle of Queens, where nobody wears fun makeup! wtf) was sold out because of preorders >: and I doubted I’d have any luck in the city so I didn’t get to compare but the SA said it was pretty close to MAC Red, which is much lighter than Electra so I guess Ronnie Red would be lighter as well. My Electra is in a discontinued formula (one of the old NYX lippies in the square black tubes), but it’s like a lighter, satin version of Ruby Woo.


  • 2/8/13 12:10 Smriti:

    Oh oh oh looks gorgeous on you!


    • 2/14/13 15:51 the Muse:

      aw thanks smiriti!


  • 2/9/13 2:00 Liz:
