Hey guys, so here’s a little Mac haul from earlier in the week. Its from the Archie’s Girls collection. I’m sure you’ve seen a bazillion of these out there in internet land but they just launched the collection here in Denmark in early March so I thought I could share with all my Europeans out there 😀
So if you didn’t know the details about the collection, its split in 2, products from the Betty line and products from the Veronica line. I only picked up a few items from the collection (mostly from the Betty line): a beauty powder, a blush and 2 lip products. Not like I need more make up but gosh darn that packaging is cute. I’m a sucker for cute packaging!!!! The eye shadows and other lip products didn’t really scream out to me and I feel like I actually have things in my collection which are very similar. Enough of the jiber jabber and lets get on with what were really here for 😀
These are my goodies, look how cute that packaging is…Mac knows how to do it right!!!
So I picked up a powder blush from the Betty side in Cream Soda. Its a beautiful peach color and according to Mac it’s a satin but it looks pretty matte to me. Either way, it’s a great blush, been rockin it since I got it. The pigmentation is great, especially on my fair skin. Its easy to blend so im super happy with this one!!
Here’s the only item I purchased from the Veronica part of the collection, the pearlmatte beauty powder in Veronica’s Blush. I would say its more pearl than matte (lol) and actually pretty frosty. I have to say this is probably my least favorite item that I picked up. Im not really sure how to use it to be honest. I tried as a blush but the dark pink hearts were realllllllyyyyyy pigmented so it kind of just made me look a little blotchy. So I tried using only the light pink and only as a highlighter on my cheekbones and that worked out fine. But I don’t think this will be my go to highlighter. Maybe in the summer when im a bit more tan it will work better. But lets see.
Now on to the good stuff and my favorite part…the lip products, all from Betty’s line. I picked up a Lipstick in Betty Bright, its a satin. Love Love Love this. Its the perfect coral, its pigmented, soft and a perfect color for spring which hasn’t arrived in Copenhagen yet but I feel its just lurking around the corner 😀
I also purchased a lipglass in Summer Sweet Heart. Its a milky, opaque peachy pink. It kind of reminds me of the Nars lip gloss in Turkish Delight in terms of consistency and opacity but this ones definitely more peachy/coarlly. The two products together are definitely my favorite way to wear them. They compliment each other really nicely 😀
So overall the products I purchased are great.
So if your a sucker for cute packaging, nostalgic about your youngster comic books days, and looking for some cute products to add to your collection then I say go for it!!
Stay tuned for more hauls to come and spring manis 😀
