MAC Archie Girls Lipstick Review
Hello Beauties! As I am sure many of you have heard of the new
Mac Archie Girls Collection being released in March, no one is exactly clear on the exact date! But from what I gather its March time! This fun packaging is inspired by a comic with three characters, Archie, Veronica and Betty. This collection is limited edition and features stunning products such as blushers, nail varnish, eyeshadow, lipgloss and lipsticks under either the Veronica collection the deeper shades such as berry or the Betty collection with pastel shades such as dusky pink. I liked the look of the Girl Next Door lipstick from the Betty collection. This is a lustre finish in a sheer pink. When I first opened the lipstick I was so excited! But when applied I wasnt. I was so annoyed! I applied it onto my lips and found I had to apply layers before I even saw a glimpse of pink, now I know its a lustre finish so isnt as pigmented as other finished, but I at least expected some sort of colour. When the colour could be seen it was very pale and not what I expected from the bright pink I saw in front of me. The lipstick did not last either and so I was upset to find this going to the back of the queue!
See left a swatch of the lipstick after 5 layers applied! Its got quite a lilac tinge to it and isnt what I expected.
