I am so sorry, and I realize this is a little after-the-fact, but my MAC Archie’s Girls samples arrived after most of the products were sold out on the MAC site. This collection is so comprehensive, that it really took me some extra time to go through and pick my favorites for both the Betty and Veronica portions. Just because some of it is sold out online, doesn’t mean you won’t find it at a counter! So I feel this info is still relevant and wanted to make sure you didn’t miss the pieces I really loved.
I’ve decided to break Archie’s Girls up into two posts; this one—my “Betty” favorites, and in an upcoming post, my “Veronica” favorites. (UPDATE: Veronica is featured here.) These “favorites” aren’t super-comprehensive reviews, but please consider them more as “highlights”. I hope you see some pieces you like, and that you’re able to make them your own!
