MAC Archie's Girls Collection
MAC Archie’s Girls Collection

While I work on editing photos, testing products, and writing up reviews, here are some photos and swatches in the meantime. Oh — and here’s something that’s funny and GREAT news for you: I received press samples at lunch time, and all the products I ordered yesterday are out for delivery today (but haven’t arrived yet!) — so I have a ton of duplicates, which means we’ll be having a massive Archie’s Girls giveaway with the products I bought. Cheers all around!  (Please hold questions until I’ve had a chance to review.)

P.S. — I am still waiting four nail polishes and a few of the accessories, but otherwise, I think this is 90% of it!
