IT'S HERE: MAC Archie's Girls

I grew up reading Archie Comics. (Who didn’t?!) While my peers in high school were gushing over their Sweet Valley High books, I was enjoying reading Archie digests. I’ve always liked how light- hearted Archie, Veronica, and Betty’s love triangle story is and it has helped me get through tough academic times and puppy love heartaches. LOL!
Times have changed and so did my preference for books and any form of written literature, but I won’t deny that Archie will always have that special place in my heart—and it still excites me whenever I see it in my bookshelf.
When I got news last year that MAC has decided to turn this cult series into a makeup collection, my eyes popped and I was literally at the edge of my seat as I was reading through the email! Indeed, an epic comic series deserves an epic attention and an epic collection!
Alright, fast forward to 2013. MAC’s first major makeup collection for Spring 2013 is Archie’s Girls, a collection that celebrates the love story and rivalry of Betty and Veronica. The grand launch was held yesterday at SM Mall of Asia.

Ms. Daphne Oseña. What do you think? Is she a Betty or Veronica? :)
The snacks served were soda fountain- inspired, and we got mini burgers, hotdog sandwiches, rootbeer floats, chocolate cupcakes, cherry colas, and sugar cookies. Jukebox music filled the air and there were dancers happily grooving to the vintage tunes. It felt like I was time warped back to the 60’s! Everything, from the atmosphere to the elements, has fused perfectly to set the mood for this fabulous collection. I love it! :D
We had photo ops and makeovers. Here’s Liz of Project Vanity who sported Daddy’s Little Girl from Veronica’s collection to a photo op with Archie.
While I, on the other hand, went for Boyfriend Stealer from Veronica’s collection as well. Liz and I both love Veronica!
Sorry girls, Archie is mine now! :D
Oddly, I did not get anything from the collection, but rather a tube of Candy Yum Yum lipstick (which is a permanent product already, by the way, so YAY!) and Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in Dirty Blonde from the Stylishly Brow Collection. Why? ‘Cuz mom offered to get me some Archie’s Girls stuff in Singapore. Hurrah to mothers! :D
Archie’s Girls is already available in MAC SM Mall of Asia, and it will be launched next week in the rest of MAC’s branches. Please call your preferred branch to inquire about the time and date of the launch. Click HERE to see the items in the entire collection.
