MAC Archie’s Girls Collection for Spring 2013

MAC Archie's Girls 6

Official word of the MARC Archie’s Girls Collection hit my inbox today. Archie’s Girls is one of the first collection’s I’ve been quite excited about from MAC in a while!

It looks like a rather fun line up for the upcoming Valentine’s Day season and has a certain cute, playful romantic vibe. I think some of the accessories are probably the best part!

MAC Archie's Girls 4

Take a peek!

Betty and Veronica – the names alone are a vivid four-colour flashback to an era of sweet, comic book innocence. Their eternal love triangle, with all-American freckle-faced Archie, is legendary in its teen tension, tight sweaters and two-toned saddle shoe charm. Girl-next-door blonde Betty vs. vivacious, spoiled rich-girl, brunette Veronica, an epic rivalry, now in two contrasting MAC colour collections, packaged in exclusively designed cases.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I’m glad I’m a Veronica, because she got all the pretty (I know that’s subjective lol) stuff! I’m interested in both of the eye quads, and maybe the Veronica nail polishes.

    MAC’s “Archie” is freaking me out…he’s, like, staring directly into my soul, and not in a good way.

  • Joy

    I’m pretty much doomed to buy everything. UGH. There goes my Spring wardrobe money…

  • Cindy Ramirez

    Oooh man I pretty much love all of Veronica’s lipsticks and that purple eyeshadow quad. ;]

  • ZG

    The pigments have caught my eye in a BIG way..
    The brush kit is pretty fun also.. sigh… there goes my money – again..

  • scarlett

    Ooh, I have never bought mac but might need the scarlett blush since my name is scarlett lol. Maybe mac should do gone with the wind themed makeup 🙂 love love ur reviews! You r beautiful muse!

  • Jennie

    I love the Caramel Sundae (I’m guessing that’s Betty’s?) eyeshadow palette and Veronica’s lipsticks and lipglasses. They’re so gorgeous!!

  • Al

    Those Veronica lipsticks totally knocked my socks off! The blush was lovely as well.

    BTW, I think the two eyeshadow palette pics may need to be swapped, Muse 🙂

    • the Muse

      sorry al will correct it as soon as I can, got a little busy yesterday and was posting from ipad/netbook on the road…pics didn’t get labeled either :-/

  • Nanalouu

    Hey Muse, I think you may have mixed up the photos for the eyeshadow palettes. The blushes look adorable!

    • the Muse

      sorry nana I was posting from ipad yesterday as had quite a few things going on at once, will edit it when I get a sec thanks 🙂

  • MeggieBeth

    This looks like so much fun and I’m actually looking forward to a new MAC collection! The Betty colors look super sweet and the Veronica side will be great for evening. Speaking on, is anyone else kinda freaked out with the face the Veronica model is making?

  • darae

    i grew up reading archie!!!! and honestly i think the packaging kind of.. sucks!!!! i think they could have done so much more it just looks like they put stickers on.. 🙁

    • AnniLau

      My first reaction was that the packaging looks kind of cheap…like the sort of thing you get in ‘play’ makeup sets as a kid.

  • dia

    I want to buy the Ginger model boy and maybe the purple Veronica palette, but only if it swatches well.

  • Poorva

    oohh awesome 😀 would def check out the face powders and i want that brush kit! 😀

  • Kiss & Make-up

    This collection doesn’t appeal to me at all as far as the theme goes. And I am afraid I am not particularly interested in the shades that are featured in this collection either. I’ll pass on this collection. Hey, at least for once I’m doing the right thing for my finances!!! 😉

  • OrangeLipstickBlog

    I’m totes a Veronica! I don’t understand why they call her “brunette” though – seems like a raven haired girl to me!

    I know it’s a coincidence (maybe?) but it’s interesting that MAC and Urban Decay are both coming out with items where it’s two girls to choose from. Glinda v. Theadora and Betty v. Veronica.

  • Iheartsmakeup12

    I love 2 of Betty’s lipsticks and one of Veronica’s! I can’t wait for them to come out!
