Glowing up I read so many of these...

... But the one thing I never understood was why they where both so fixed on Archie? Let's be honest, he's not that handsome, is he? I used to love Betty, the perfect blond but would always feel sorry for Veronica, the spoiled little rich girl. Could be because she was the dark haired one and I identified with her more.

Each girl has her own color collection composed of lipsticks, lip glosses, eye shadows, pigments, pencils mascaras, powders and nail lacquers.

I find the colors chosen for each character are quite representative or their respective personalities. While Betty has the girl next door style, Veronica's is more "vampish". Betty's lean towards soft and neutral shades. Veronica, well like her, they are more noticeable, more dramatic.

They also each have their own nail lacquers as well as mascaras. To complete the collection they share accessories like a coin purse, tote, a mirror as well as a makeup bag. The item I find most exciting, the Brush Set! White with little red hearts, I love it!

This collection is fun and in my opinion, truly captures the essence of the comic books. Again I'll be looking at the Brush Set more closely as well as at a few items from Veronica's colors.

MAC Archie's Girls Collection will be available online on MAC's website starting January 31st. There is a February 7th launch date for stores and counters but I'm not sure this includes Canada. International availability will be in March.
