MAC Spring 2013 Collection: Archie's Girls

I was perusing MAC's website this morning and a few upcoming collections really caught my eye. Since there are so many pictures and collection information, I'm going to split this up into three separate posts.

The Archie's Girls collection is available online right now, and came out in MAC stand-alone stores today. The collection will be available everywhere else on February 7th, 2013.

The collection consists of A LOT of products. Online they are divided and shown in three different sections: Archie's Girls, Betty and Veronica.

Archie's Girls

"The ravishing rivals for Archie's affection inspire a colour collection celebrating their iconic personas. Smoulder in deep and seductive tones by spoiled rich girl Veronica or beam like blonde-next-door Betty in soft and innocent shades for eyes and face. So gorgeous in exclusively designed packaging. Limited Edition."

There are also some products exclusive to the collection.

"Spring colour animated with a series of collectible, heart-inspired accessories in glossy white faux-patent, featuring the vibrant love-struck faces of Archie, Betty and Veronica. Chic, portable, and popping with a graphic impact so adorable you'll be swooning over each piece."

Brush Kit ($49.50)
Young Hearts Mirror ($25.00)
Yours Forever Tote ($49.50)
Jingle Jangle Coin Purse ($32.00)
Just a Flirt Makeup Bag ($38.00)

I think this collection looks really fun, and the packaging is adorable! I do feel that the white patent may look a little cheap, so I'll definitely have to check everything out in stores before purchasing. I'm excited to test out and swatch the products!

One thing I am disappointed about is that there are no individual eye shadows in the collection. I don't like buying MAC quads since they usually have one, and sometimes two, colors that are part of the permanent line. However, after looking at the shadows in each quad I may buy one...or both! Neither contains any permanent shadows AND the Veronica palette is made up of all different shades of purple, which is my fave color to wear.
