“Betty and Veronica – the names alone are a vivid four-color flashback to an era of sweet, comic book innocence. Their eternal love triangle, with all-American freckle-faced Archie, is legendary in its teen tension, tight sweaters and two-toned saddle shoe charm. Girl-next-door blonde Betty vs. vivacious, spoiled rich-girl, brunette Veronica, an epic rivalry, now in two contrasting MAC color collections, packaged in exclusively designed cases.” Archie’s Girls. The name didn’t ring a bell when I first heard about this new MAC collection, so I didn’t quite know what this 37-piece limited edition was all about.
Soon after, I learned that Archie’s Girls is a super popular comic in the US with Archie, Betty and Veronica as main characters. Shame on me for having spent 4 years in the US and not knowing what Archie and his girls are all about!
Well-behaved Betty and attractive Veronica were MAC’s inspiration for this new collection, and the cartoon-like packaging perfectly translates the whole comic book atmosphere. I have to say, I wasn’t too attracted by the packaging at first, not really my kind of thing, but the colors are amazing and made me fall for this collection anyway. Let’s have a look, shall we?!
