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.

£15.50

Have you found the same or is it just me?

  10. That's such a a shame - I tried Daddy's little girl in store and that one is much brighter. I bought the Veronica's Blush pearlmatte powder and love it (mostly for the heart design though, he he)

  11. Lustre finishes don't tend to be as pigmented or as even which is a shame, they just don't translate particularly well. Layered and worked into the lip they look a lot better and their staying power is improved.

    This collection doesn't appeal to me personally, I hate the packaging and sadly (or should that be thankfully?) I don't fancy any of the products! x
