I agree! She is so iconic so how could MAC have missed the opportunity for great packaging and a whole collection? I love Betty Book and will still buy it, but it is a let down.

This is kinda pathetic. Only one item (of an exceptionally common color particularly for MAC who releases like 40 red lipsticks a year) and it doesn’t even have special packaging. :/

I am disappointed. I read some comments and agree that this is a huge missed opportunity for MAC. Betty has such a cult following and they could have done something really spectacular in packaging. I don’t need anymore reds so this is a pass for me. I would have purchased if it had been a special color or with different packaging.

I’m disappointed in this release. There isn’t even any special packaging on the bullet. I did see that the lipstick sleeve had a design on it, but that’s still no reason to charge $21 for this when Ruby Woo is $17. MAC just tried it…*major side eye*

My Mom’s “namesake” nickname, but no fun packaging, MAC??? If only. Then I would HAVE to buy this. But just for its name, albeit sentimental and very meaningful, not so sure. Trying to use up what reds I have before they “turn”. But, but, Betty Boop??? ?

Don’t know if I’ll end up wanting this or not. If I do want it, as weird as it is to have plain packaging with this one, I have to say I’m glad it’s not Betty Booped up. I’m not a Betty fan.

I really expected special packaging for this, given how iconic Betty Boop is, and how common red is. I mean, there are a thousand other equally priced reds in varying finishes, formulas and undertones. There doesn’t seem to be much of a marketing drive for this particular lipstick at all, which seems a bit strange. Like why even bother?

The idea of a Betty Boop collection was exciting, but now I think it’s an easy pass.

The color is great (it’s hard to go wrong with red), but I’m not seeing anything special about this release otherwise. I agree with others that it would have been nice to see some creative packaging!

Omg, two of my favorite things brought together, i’m so excited…and the color is absolutely stunning, my fav red for sure…..<3 thank you for sharing Christine…..love from a Portuguese fan of yours.

COME ONE….. I love Betty Boop and since Mac releases 50 reds per yr I would expect this to have special packaging… agh. Is it a one day only thing?

my real dream would be if this was like a repeat of how Mariah Carey teamed up with MAC, in that one year they release just 1 lipstick in standard packaging (All That Glitters in 2015), and then next year release a full collection with special packaging. I would be all over that, I LOVE Betty Boop. and they could totally make it as cute and cool a collection as Archie’s Girls and Rocky Horror were. But alas, I shan’t be buying this. a red lipstick in plain packaging. no thanks. what a wasted opportunity.

What’s the point? No Betty Boop packaging. It’s only Betty Boop because Mac says it is. There ain’t nothing Bett Boop about it except that it’s red. I have lots of Betty Boop lipsticks in that case

I hope you’ll get this one to review. If I don’t have a gazillion dupes for it I might just buy it just because it’s Betty Boop.
