Hey dolls - so I am an absolute sucker for the fun MAC collections. I recently picked up some items from the new Archie`s Girls collection. While I think it is absolutely adorable I don`t think that I am really impressed with the actual products themselves.
I`ll first give a quick listing of what I bought and then give you my impressions. I bought:
- Betty Powder Blush: Cream Soda
- Betty Lipstick: Girl Next Door
- Betty Lipglass: Summer Sweetheart
- Betty Lipglass: Kiss & Don`t Tell
- Betty Lipglass: Stay Sweet
- Veronica Lipglass: Strawberry Malt
I was more drawn to the Betty collection because I typically like lighter pinks and nudes.
So, let`s dive into my reviews. I`ll start with the good - I love the Cream Soda blush. It is a gorgeous peachy nude color which I think is going to be really pretty for the Spring and Summer months. It has great color payoff and the packaging is adorable.
I was a little disappointed in the Girl Next Door lipstick. It looks like it would be a great pale pink color but I found that it is almost very sheer and doesn`t show up on my lips at all. It is a lustre lipstick so I didn`t expect for it to be super pigmented but all in all I think it was a miss for me.
And finally, the lipglasses! I do really like two of the colors - Kiss & Don`t Tell is a great bright pink melon color and Strawberry Malt is a nice wash of red gloss. Kiss & Don`t Tell is going to be a really great summer color to wear with a nude eye and maybe a little black sundress. Strawberry Malt really does remind me of a great cherry lipgloss that makes your lips nice and red and juicy. Interestingly enough I was not a huge fan of the two lighter pink colors. Stay Sweet was a little too milky in color for me. Summer Sweetheart was just too similar to other glosses that I already have and didn`t impress me that much.
I am glad that I picked some things up from this collection but overall I was not in love with it. I didn`t pick up any of the eyeshadow palettes or pigments because again I felt the colors were too similar to colors I already had in other palettes or by themselves. I am however, REALLY looking for the Rihanna and MAC collection coming out in May (I think). Did anyone else pick anything up from the Archie`s Girls collection? What were your thoughts?
