Review - MAC Archie's Girls!

MAC Archie's Girl is a new limited-edition collection based on the Archie and the Gang Comics. The collection is split into three; Archie's Girls, Veronica and Betty. 


At first glance I had the suspicion that I was a Veronica, I have dark hair and lean more towards a darker lip. When choosing my purchases however I decided to dabble in all areas, picking the products which I was more drawn to and the shades I prefer. 

I chose my final products after spending perhaps an hour on Temptalia choosing what she rated as the best quality products from my choice of items. What I ended up buying was this; two Lipsticks (Ronnie Red and Oh Oh Oh), a Lipglass (Strawberry Malt), a Face Powder (Flatter Me) and finally two Pearlglide Eyeliners (Petrol Blue and Lord it Up). 


Veronica Lipstick Ronnie Red
A classic Matte red, real staying power and a nice bright almost pink-strawberry red!




Veronica Lipglass Strawberry Malt
A classic strawberry coloured lip glass with no glitter, leaves a nice juicy, almost jelly like gloss on the lips. Perfect on its own or paired on top of Ronnie Red Lipstick.







This lipstick is a chameleon lipstick, it will look different on all lips! It swatches as a plummy-brown with gold glitter. On my lips it is a little bit plummy but quite a natural brown colour, not too brown though and has a nice golden glittery sheen.






Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Petrol Blue and Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Lord it Up
Both supersoft pencils, they look great in the water line or smudged out as an eyeshadow! Fantastically pigmented, with small glitter particles.

Petrol Blue, Lord it Up
Petrol Blue, Lord it Up.


Archie's Girls Pearlmatte Face Powder in Flatter Me
A beautiful peachy shade, similar to MAC's Limited Edition Shell Pearl, however NOT a dupe. If you like peach shades then this is just divine!




 Remember, these are limited edition products in limited edition packaging so buy them online or in store before they sell out! (Several of the items shown have sold out online)

Have you tried any of the new collection? What's your favourite?

  1. This is too cute! I used to live in Malaysia when I was young and my mum would always pick me up an Archie comic book from our local store :P x

  2. That's so cool. I do love it when cosmetic companies get comic-book inspiration! I also have some Spiderman OPI Nail Polish which is sooo cool!
