MAC Archie Girls Makeup Collection

MAC’s new big makeup collaboration has the 12-year-old girl in me very excited.

It’s ARCHIE COMICS, you guys. Betty! Veronica! All recreated a lá MAC.

I always thought I was a Betty at heart — the quiet girl-next-door with a sweet disposition — but the Veronica line of makeup? Full of vampy reds and moody purples? Dang, I might be swayed toward the dark (haired) side.

Take a look below at the Betty and Veronica “Archie’s Girls” collections:

Sugar-sweet peach and bubblegum pink personifies the cheerful, innocent Betty.

The Veronica line — deep red, purple, navy, etc. — is as bold and daring as the dark-haired heartbreaker herself.

The entire “Archie’s Girls” MAC Collection is available online NOW, and in stores February 7…just in time for Valentine’s Day.
