When I found out about the MAC Archie’s Collection, I knew right away that I wanted to get my hands on some of the pieces! I wanted to secure a product or two from the collection even more when I read Temptalia’s review on the lipsticks from the collection. I ended up loving the products from Veronica’s line more than then products from Betty’s line which is why I purchased two lippies from Veronica’s line: Ronnie Red and Daddy’s little girl. Both lipsticks have different finishes so I chose to review each separately.
I just wanna share how I was able to get my little brother to sponsor my newest acquisitions! HAHA! So my brother’s currently graduating and it’s a pre-requisite for all the seniors in his high school to accomplish a mini thesis paper worth 15-20 pages without the table of contents and bibliography. He was preparing his powerpoint the night before his defense while I was trying to study for my pol sci finals. He started bugging me to help him prettify his powerpoint (cuz I make fabulous powerpoints) and I told him I couldn’t help him because I was busy studying for my finals. He knew that I’ve been obsessing over the MAC Archie’s Girls collection lipsticks so he suddenly offered to buy the lipsticks for me (he’s filthy richer than me because he’s crazy frugal) ! He was like dangling a bone in front of a hungry dog. Being the makeup addict that I am, I jumped on the offer and gladly fixed his powerpoint and decided to study for my finals right before my exam. HA HA.
Anyway, enough about that. Let’s talk about my newest one true love!!!
I would consider this lipstick a true red lipstick that has a touch of pink to it. It also has blue undertones which helps make your teeth look whiter. It comes in a limited edition packaging which is a shiny white case with veronica’s face on it.
What I love:
I still can’t decide if I fancy the fact that the lipstick has Veronica’s face on it but I do like collecting products with limited edition packaging so I guess that’s good. I really like the shade because even if the lipstick has a pink tone to it, it’s still dominantly red. The formulation is also amazing because of it has excellent pigmentation and it’s not drying at all, considering that it has a matte finish. I can’t bring myself to purchase the classic reds from MAC such as Ruby Woo and Russian Red because they both look so drying and I have really dry lips. It also has an incredibly long wearing power. It left a stain on my lips even after I tried wiping it off with my makeup remover.
What I don’t like:
I really like this lipstick! I recommend this to those who have cool-toned skin. To find out if you’re cool toned, look at your veins on your upper arm. If your veins are bluish, you’re cool-toned. If they are greenish, you are on the warmer side. I also recommend this to those who have really dry lips! If you have Dry lips then this is the red for you! :) However, this is a bit similar to the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection’s Charmed I’m Sure. I already have Charmed I’m Sure which is how I noticed the similarities. If you have it, you may skip on this one. :)
lol awkward angle but i think this photo shocases the sahde pretty well. :))
