MAC Archie's Girls: Link Round-Up for Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Thanks for staying with us these past few days as we reviewed MAC’s Archie’s Girls’ Collection! Because there were so many posts, here is a round-up of all of them in case you missed one! (And I’m half-way through testing Feelin’ So Good, and after that, I’ll do testing for Oh, Oh, Oh, and then we’ll officially be over and out on this launch!)  I will be reviewing Viva Glam Nicki 2 soon as well as the three lipsticks from Year of the Snake soon.



P.S. — I was always a Betty & Jughead fan. Knew it would never happen but always wanted it to! 🙂

And here are some quick photos of the mascara tubes for packaging (not reviewing)…

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

That’s too funny! I guess it is a rather obscure pairing, I never thought of it that way!
Also, I wanted to thank you for everything you do for this site! You’ve been my go to for all my makeup purchasing questions for over 3 years!

Christine, thank you for all your amazing work, I’ve had my cell with me all the time to follow you on twitter, to see all your reviews. Keep up the good work, you just keep getting better.

I admire your dedication Christine! Nothing from this collection has caught my attention, but your sole work is something to look up to. :3

just wanted to say thanks for all of your awesome reviews of these products. i know a lot of us were waiting on them and you put them out so quickly without diminishing the quality of the posts. i love archie so i kind of want to buy everything just for the packaging. thanks to your swatches i do have a few things i am looking at but i may wait until they hit my local macys before committing.

thanks again, christine!

You are so awesome! Many thanks for all the reviews! Looking forward to your review on VG Nikki 2 and Year of the Snake lipsticks. Oh Christine, you got me addicted to lippies! :]

Christine, do you have any idea when will this be available internationally? I already bought Daddy’s liitle girl online but the swatches of those pearlglides are just gorgeous!

Gifted the majority of the collection and would have to say the stand outs are Ronnie Red and Oh Oh Oh. What are you loving and leaving Christine?

A lot of the products that are nice quality are dupable, so I’m not really obsessed with anything! I like the brush set’s tin the most, LOL!

I got to admit…MAC does a great job in advertising…there is a red red in almost every collection…but with a different name and a different finish…displaying the cartoon with a catchy background music on the HOME webpage…giving catchy name to the products like Bright Betty, Ronni Red, Mall Madness, Strawberry Malt…everything that connotates the comic strip…making everything limited and hard to get unless you are in the race…the appeal is undeniable…thanks to Christine, it helps to buy what one likes.

Yay! Thank you for all of your review and swatches of MAC Archie’s Girls Collection Christine! I loved it! and I really admire your dedication. Now I’m finally decided what I really want to buy!

I like some items from Betty’s but I love more of Veronica!
(Team Veronica all the way!)

Thanks again! XO

Hi Christine, do you have much issue with your MAC lipsticks smudging? I’ve bought a few now with different finishes and find them all over my face within about half an hour. I never have this problem with any other brand (from revlon to chanel and nars)…some of the colours in this collection are great, but I’m hesitant to buy again because of the smudging issue.

Just wanted to drop a note to thank you for getting this collection reviewed so quickly. I was really really tempted to order in the first mad rush of M.A.C. online, but after getting burned by previous collections, I’m glad I waited for your reviews. Thank you so much for your honest opinions…I follow a few blogs, but sometimes I definitely note a positive bias regardless of the quality of the product but never on your blog. So thank you!

Cristine, do you think that Cream soda and Flatter me are too close to own both? Im on a budget but would like to own either one of the face compacts from Betty’s collection. Thanks 🙂

Your swatches and reviews are SOOOOOO very helpful to me! Me being new to make-up. I really should have started earlier, I’m now 22 and wish I had started getting in touch with my girly side =P
Can’t wait to get my hands on some of these! Which face powder would you recommend for my medium Asian skintone? I do have fairly visible pores and going by your description, seems like the Betty one is more forgiving in the pore area

I am clearly late on purchasing and a lot of the items that I wanted from this collection are gone. Do know know if MAC will be restocking online and in stores?
