Betty and Veronica have been fighting over Archie for decades. Now, MAC Cosmetics is recreating their feud with an entirely new twist—a makeup line. Introducing, Archie’s Girls. This line has everything: eyeshadow palettes, nail polish, lipstick, and more. The collection is split in two with products that represent both Betty and Veronica’s personalities, and people are going nuts over them. The original in-store release date was February 9th. However, it was released early in select stores and completely sold out within a few hours. Here are the must haves of this collection.
MAC is not often associated for its unique array of nail colors, but boy did they nail this line. Whether you’re a “good” girl or “bad” girl, you’re going to love these colors. Winter is almost over, but you can still live it up with these two beautiful Veronica shades: Past Curfew and Double Trouble ($17.50 each). Past Curfew is a deep magenta with purple undertones. This dark berry matches beautifully with like colors or blacks. Double Trouble is a bit more daring. Although it is navy, the color is still a lighter blue and the wearability is reduced. Still, once you try it on, you never want to take it off. Then, there’s Betty. These shades will most certainly be popular in the spring and summer. Comic Cute ($17.50) is, well, cute. It’s a vintage inspired, warm, bubble gum color gives it that feminine flair that every girl needs to add to her collection. Pep, Pep, Pep ($17.50) is a beautiful beach shell nude with hints of peach that can be worn to tune down a dressy look or brighten up an outfit.
The four color eye palettes are so different that it’s difficult to narrow them down to one favorite. Veronica’s Spoiled Rich ($44.00) is a deep purple smoky palette, which is trending for spring. These colors offer daring, dramatic looks and will catch attention with each glance. Meanwhile, Betty’s Caramel Sundae ($44.00) ranges in shades from a light pink to gold and brown. Her palette is more wearable because the nude colors can be used more often and easily than the smoky look, but both are equally magnificent. Also available are limited edition pearlglide intense eye liners packed with glitter to make simple eye looks pop.
Finally, “Archie’s Girls” has one more trick up its sleeve: two beautiful pearlmatte face powders. Whether you’re set on Veronica or standing behind Betty, these powders will definitely have you second guessing which girl you compare to. Betty’s Flatter Me palette ($30.00) is a golden nude with specks of pink that makes skin glow radiantly. It’s a sunless bronze that can be used sparingly to contour or dramatically to make cheekbones stand out. Meanwhile, Veronica’s Blush ($30.00) is a combination of watermelon and berry pinks that add an adorable flush to the apples of your cheeks.
For those collectors out there, MAC has exclusive products that are only available online, such as brushes, bags, and compact, heart-shaped mirrors that are just to-die-for. Not to mention all of the tubes and palettes featured in the collection have been re-vamped just for fun. Opulash mascara fans don’t have to switch to strictly Betty or Veronica formulas ($17.50 each) because the only difference is the packaging and shade. So, forget about Archie. This spring, fight for Betty and Veronica.
