MAC Ronnie Red Lipstick - Review, Photos, Swatches


Betty or Veronica? As much as I love being blonde (literally), I know that deep inside, I am Veronica.
MAC Archie's Girls Collection was inspired by these ladies who literally fought over Archie's love (I still don't know why, lol). The collection had 2 parts: Betty and Veronica (ain't that a surprise?).

I personally prefer most lipsticks from Veronica, but because I'm a sucker for any shade of coral, I also love 1 lipstick from Betty's. My sister ordered my most favorite lipstick from the collection, and that's what this review is for. :)

MAC Ronnie Red is a bright pinky red lipstick with blue undertones and in matte finish. As usual, the color payoff is perfect and the opacity is superb. MAC  Ruby Woo is brighter, more pinup red. MAC Russian Red is darker and bluer.

PROS: matte formula but not drying, long wearing, leaves a pretty stain on your lips when it feathers off, a refreshing shade of red, packaging is really cute!
CONS: pricey and a limited edition :(



VERDICT:

  I will definitely repurchase!



Where To Buy:
Local release is 2nd and 3rd week of March
P1000 (I think), I got mine online

  2. I'm definitely going to grab mine on March 9, lol. I actually love all of the shades, but I might get Ronnie Red & Betty Bright.

    Oh yeah, and I don't know either why Ronnie & Betty (or even Cheryl Blossom) kept on fighting over Archie, lol. :)

  3. Waaaah you know what, we really have the same taste (and some similar items) sa makeup! Will be getting my preordered Ronnie Red and Betty Bright from Carefreeshopper pag nakapay na ako ulit nung half.

    Love Ronnie Red on you, lalo tuloy ako naexcite to receive mine! I'm more Betty as I'd like to believe, though friends and family would probably break my illusion and tell me I'm so Veronica. :))
