As a former Archie comics fan (see this post for proof), I was more than a little excited to meet with MAC cosmetics last week for a glimpse of the MAC Archie's Girls collection. The collection--which comprises lip products, liners, pigment powders, nail lacquers, and face, blush, and eyeshadow palettes--is split into two colour stories inspired by girl-next-door Betty and rich vixen Veronica. The Betty products are light, natural, and suitable for daytime wear; think peaches, pinks, and pastels. Meanwhile, the Veronica products are darker and more dramatic, featuring a palette of reds and purples.
Pretty colours and MAC's notorious high-performance formulations aside, expect some seriously covetable packaging. Heart motifs and classic Betty and Veronica drawings adorn palettes, lipstick cases, bottles, and bags. The 5-piece brush set would be an adorable addition to any vanity, while the heart-shaped makeup bag and coin case are great for organizing handbag essentials.
Archie's Girls officially launches February 7, 2013, at all MAC counters in Canada. Like previous limited-edition MAC collaborations, this one is expected to sell out quickly. But Solo Lisa readers are in for a treat: The MAC Robson Street location is having an Archie's Girls launch event tomorrow evening 7pm-9pm and you're invited! Call to RSVP.
Now, the only question is, are you a Betty or a Veronica?
