Betty or Veronica? The Decision Has Never Been Prettier

by Jennifer Welsing

Betty or Veronica? Which one should Archie end up with? Who would be your BFF? Which one represents your style, the girl-next-door or the spoiled rich one? These are the questions girls have been asking since they were old enough to pick up a comic book. And now, thanks to M.A.C. we can show our loyalty with our lipstick.


Following in the footsteps of such iconic ladies like Miss Piggy and Wonder Woman, M.A.C. is now focusing their mascara wands on the worlds most legendary teenage love triangle. With their new line, Archie’s Girls, M.A.C. is offering a full line of cosmetics, including eye shadow, lip stick, blush, nail polish and more in two sets; one for Betty and one for Veronica. The Betty set is all pretty pinks and corals with the sweet-faced blonde on all the packaging. The Veronica set is what you think it will be, vibrant reds and purples featuring the spoiled brunette. And if you were wondering where Archie is in all of this, the line also includes a brush kit, make-up bag, tote and more with the three smiling cheek to cheek to cheek.

In true M.A.C. fashion, the design of the line is fantastic. Using the classic imagery of Archie, Betty and Veronica from the early Archie comics gives the line a timeless feel. Also, what looks to be a great part of this line is the ability to mix and match the colors from each set  so you won’t have to be just a Betty or just a Veronica but be a little of both. The line is set to be released in store February 3rd, just in time for Valentines Day!
