And I name my cars.
Ok back to the makeup... I think this is such a cute collection idea. The sweet, girl-next-door shades in the Betty half of the collection are offset by the deeper, more vivacious colors in the Veronica half. Just in time for Valentine's Day.
The packaging is absolutely presh. With the likeness of either Betty and Veronica printed on their correlating products. Little sweet hearts and the comic likenesses of Betty, Archie, and Veronica make for such fun and happy packaging, reminiscent of the 1950's. SO cute, I can't even take it.
So while I was (obviously) instantly charmed by the collection itself and the packaging, the products and colors are the most impressive part. Which I have definitely not been able to say about a MAC collection in a very long time. Let's face it, the quality of the products IS the most important part.
Since I wanted to keep this post all about the swatches and photos, I'll save my specific thoughts for my video review which you can check out here or at the bottom of the page. So don't miss that if you want more of my thoughts on this collection and my must-have items.
So without further ado, here's the swatchy goodness...
