Happy New Year lovelies!
I hope that all of you had a happy and healthy Christmas & New Year!
As you know from a prior post, Fashion Icons Part I, I am a huge Betty & Veronica fan. I’ve been collecting B&V comics, dolls and memorabilia since I was a child. In junior high, I even did a project on the ‘origin of Archie Comics’. I guess you could say I’m a devotee, which is why I’m so excited about the upcoming MAC Cosmetics Betty & Veronica Collection!
Are you a Betty or a Veronica?
The MAC Cosmetics Betty & Veronica Collection will be available in Canada on February 7th, just in time for Valentine’s Day! The collection includes: lipsticks, glosses, eye shadow quads, powder, mascaras, eye liners and a set of makeup brushes. I rarely get excited about MAC Cosmetics ‘limited edition’ series. The colours usually are the same or very close to previous products. However, this time is an exception. I am excited and truth be told, I don’t care if the colours are truly ‘new’! I’m just a sucker for the packaging!
Speaking of the packaging, I am very pleased that they selected classic, vintage Betty & Veronica images for the product tubes and packaging. How damn cute are they!? It just wouldn’t have been the same if they had used modern illustrations of B&V. MAC Cosmetics has certainly ‘sexed’ up our classic Betty, Veronica and Archie in the accompanying marketing images!
Betty & Veronica are wearing wigs and rubber! Hmmm. Also, Archie appears to be wearing several earrings? I personally would have preferred that the photos be classic and more vintage, but this is ‘marketing’ after all. And, yes, sex sells! Perhaps the S&M crowd will be lining up in droves to get some MAC B&V makeup!
Ok, enough of my mild social commentary. On to the makeup!
So, are you a Betty or a Veronica? I guess I’m more of a ‘Veronica’ due to my dark hair and keen fashion sense. 🙂 Really, I adore them both and will buy items from both of their lines.
