MAC Archie's Girls Betty Bright Lipstick







MAC Archie's Girls lipstick in Betty Bright: £15.50

I have to admit I'd not really heard of the Archie's Girls comic before MAC announced their collaboration recently. Dating back to the 40s, the comics would depict best frenemies Betty and Veronica in their bids to secure Archie as their man. Betty is the sweet, blonde girl-next-door whereas Veronica is the brunette spoiled rich girl.

The MAC Archie's Girls collection consists of some general products as well as some more suited to either character within the range. I steered clear of the gorgeous blushes as I really do have enough for the time being, but my absolute vice is a limited edition lipstick as MAC always seem to produce the best colours for a short time only. From the moment I saw the press release, I knew Betty Bright would have to make its way into my collection.

Betty Bright is described as a 'light, bright peach' with a satin finish. Usually these kinds of shades are released in more sheer formulas like cremesheen and lustre finishes so it makes a nice change. Betty Bright isn't drying as such but does have a habit of clinging onto any dry areas on the lips so it's essential to prep them with a good scrub and balm first. It's a lot brighter than I actually anticipated, which means it looks best when the rest of the face is kept pretty simple - just a good base, minimal eye makeup (matte nude shadows and a good helping of black mascara with a little liner if you wish) and you're done. I know this is going to look extra lovely in the warmer months ahead paired with a (hopefully, real) tan.

What do you think of this lipstick, and the collection in general? MAC Archie's Girls collection is currently exclusive to Selfridges, but will roll out into all MAC locations as well as online pretty soon. Are you more of a Betty or a Veronica?

PS. I feel I should only apologise for the ultra posiness (sp?!) that is the picture above - but it was the best of a bad bunch! I'd also like to point out that what looks like a bra is, in fact, a dress. Panic over. Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. I usually manage to restrain myself from buying anything from the limited edition collections but I always end up kicking myself when I miss out on a blinder of a product. I think Betty Bright might be the latest blinder and I can see a purchase on the cards. Thanks for sharing and saving me torment of missing out! x Becky

  8. I'm a sucker for Limited MAC stuff especially their lipsticks, I really like the look of 'Ronnie Red' the Veronica lipstick but I really can't justify another lipstick especially since MAC raised their prices. Sadface. You look gorgeous! Hope you have a nice Valentine's Day

  12. This is the first time I have given in and bought from a limited edition range. I went for lipsticks - Ronnie Red and Oh Oh Oh. I have been wearing Ronnie Red at work today and received many compliments. It's bombproof too - I put it on 12 hours ago (almost to the minute) and it hasn't budged!I'm not sure I could carry off the bright pink like you do though!

  15. I was in Selfridge's on Sunday and I ummed and ahhed about buying this and didn't in the end. I am now metaphorically kicking myself because it looks like such a gorgeous shade!

  34. I got mine mail order despite the selfridges rip off postage as it reminded me of my beloved mac flamingo. Will be buying a back up when it hits the mac counter as i still regret not getting 2 flamingoes. Its pinker than cut a caper,jazzed etc, maybe closer to costa chic. I was getting fed up of no satin formula releases as although more drying they last.x

  35. This colour is gorgeous and it really suits you. I think Archie comics are a bit of an American thing. I was aware of them because I think they're mentioned in Friends but other than that I didn't really know too much about them haha x
