MAC: Archie's Girls

I haven't been that excited about a MAC collection in awhile but when I saw the packaging for the Archie's Girls collection, I was sold. The red hearts and comic style artwork; love, love, love! With much restrain, I only picked up 2 lipsticks from this collection. I chose 2 colors that I knew I would wear and though they are similar to colors I already own, did I mention the cute packaging?!

So I picked up the Ronnie Red lipstick from the Veronica line and the Betty Bright lipstick from the Betty line. I'm extremely happy with my choices and if I had one regret, I wish I would have purchased the Daddy's Little Girl lipstick from the Veronica line because you can never have enough hot pink lipsticks right?! Oh well, it's a very small regret because Daddy's Little Girl is very close to MAC's Candy Yum Yum in my opinion. It really had more to do with the cute packaging that had me lusting over it for a hot minute. At the time I made my purchase nothing was sold out yet, but now all 3 of these colors are sold out...everywhere (Mac, Nordstrom, and Macy's). I know this collection is also sold at Dillard's but I didn't see any lipsticks on their site. The collection will also launch tomorrow, 2/7, at MAC stores. 

Now for some pics & swatches!

Betty Bright Lipstick, $16.50
As you can see the packaging is super cute, with Betty on one side and little red hearts on the other side. This lipstick is a warm, pinky coral color with a satin finish. It's nice and creamy and very opaque. I'm definitely going to be rocking this for spring and summer!

Ronnie Red, $16.50
Ronnie Red is a matte finish, bright blue-toned red lipstick that is absolutely gorgeous! Compared to other reds I have, I actually think Ronnie Red leans more towards a raspberry red. However alone, it looks like a true bright red. As for the matte finish, I find this lipstick has some sheen to it which is nice and makes it less of a dry formula which a lot of matte finishes can be. I think this color is complimenting to all skin tones and is worth trying to get if you are looking for that great red lipstick color.
