Archie’s Girls by MAC – retro and fabulous.

Make up legends MAC’s latest limited edition range is totally retro fabulous. ‘Archie’s Girls’ is inspired by the comic series ‘Archie’s Girls Betty and Veronica‘ which tells the tale of the classic love triangle that consists of Archie Andrews, the gorgeous blonde girl next door Betty and the sultry rich girl Veronica. The series has been running since the 1940s, and now the iconic characters have been immortalised in a vintage style range from M.A.C that you can find in Selfridges from today.

The Archie’s Girls collection is very much a contrast between the two girls. Blonde Betty is very much the cutesy, Doris Day, Sandra Dee type girl next door so her collection could be christened ‘pretty in pink’. Veronica, on the other hand, would’ve given Bettie Page a run for her money in the sultry stakes, so her collection is much more dark and dangerous. Very different, but both of the collections come in gorgeous 1950s comic book inspired packaging which makes it just so wonderful, perfect for beauty lovers and those with a zest for retro pieces.

Take a little look at this collection and tell me you’re not seduced.
