MAC Archie’s Girls : Ronnie Red Lipstick

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.
As evidenced by my previous entries, I have developed quite a small addiction to lipstick, MAC lipsticks en particulier. Since that fondness started, there hasn’t been any major collections that debuted  — MAC Archie’s Girls Collection is the first. In retrospect, I’m never one to be sucked into limited editions (my wallet says thankfully so!). I always think of purchasing only when the products are the kind that I would be using often. Enter MAC Archie’s Girls Collection — two elements I never would have imagined to ever be in the same sentence let alone in a collaboration. The grade school girl in me got giddy all over after finding out about this collection. Back when I had no idea lipstick existed, I was a huge Archie Comics geek! I went to National Bookstore almost every week to buy one, read in a day and add to my precious collection. Kinda like how I feel with lipstick now (except of course I don’t buy it weekly!). Prior to this collection, I never really was attracted to any other limited edition lipstick (with a special packaging) because I like the original MAC lipstick’s packaging. Seeing them collectively in uniformly shiny black bullets appealed to me more than any intricately designed limited edition art. This left me perplexed between the Archie Comic fan in me and the Obsessive Compulsive hoarder that I am. Do I buy or do I not? Obviously, I’ve chosen to give in and purchase one product. I was picking among this, Betty Bright and Daddy’s Little Girl. Once my favorite Multiply shop stocked up on the collection, I panicked and quickly chose Ronnie Red just so I can check out and confirm my purchase already. If I had chosen one more shade, I may have been too late in checking out. And true enough, once I checked back to see if I could still purchase Betty Bright or Daddy’s Little Girl, both had already been sold out. C-R-A-Z-Y. MAC Ronnie Red is a bright pinky red with blue undertones. I don’t usually go for bright reds but since I’m a fan of matte lipsticks, that more than the color, tickled my lipstick senses. Also, the fact that Temptalia gave this an A+ intrigued me even more. That girl knows lipstick. I mean, imagine all the lipstick (and blushes, foundation, etc etc) she has swatched and tried on her face! Anyway I’m truly impressed by the formulation of this one. Its matte finish is unlike the other mattes I own, which are MAC too. This one seemed to glide on easily as compared to the ever so famous Ruby Woo.  I didn’t experience any feathering or budging for hours! Even after a meal, it didn’t seem like anything was wiped off when I bit into my delicious tuna and egg sandwich. Temptalia wasn’t kidding when she said this particular lipstick was long-wearing. Even the stain stayed on until I got home and only then when I wiped it off with my oil-based eye & lip remover did it finally say bye bye. Pretty impressive, if I may say so myself. As you can see, I only have one other red which is Viva Glam I, also from the matte family which is a deeper, darker brick red compared to Ronnie’s pink redness. As for dryness level, I would say that my dry lips didn’t get at all chapped compared to when I wear other MAC lipsticks which are of cremesheen formula. It’s not moisturizing nor hydrating but it felt so lovely to wear, like I didn’t have anything heavy applied on my lips.  Overall, I can say I’ve found another red I can wear (and I’m not particularly magnetized towards red all that much). If I could repurchase, I’d have to say I’m in between. I haven’t tried a lot of reds to be able to say I’d be loyal to this one but we’ll see. Price: Php 850 – Php 1000 depending on where you buy it. Where to Buy: MAC Stores (but you’d have to fall in line for what 1-2 hours?!), Online Shops (Multiply, Instagram)

    Waa, wasn’t able to buy one, pati na yung Betty Bright. Kainis talaga 🙁

    • March 17, 2013 / 3:53 am

      Gusto ko nga rin nung Betty Bright! Online baka mag-restock mga sellers pero paunahan nanaman. Gosh talaga, MAC! Kaloka ang mga limited edition.

    wow! ang ganda sayo, im eyeing daddys little girl since may russian red nako,, and im quite wary na sa mac kasi theyre so drying,

    • March 17, 2013 / 3:54 am

      Thanks dear! Daddy’s Little Girl is nice nga, plan ko rin sana kunin yon 🙂 I think Russian Red is more classic pero the formulation of this is better (DAW) than Russian Red. I wouldnt know cos I dont have Russian Red eh.

      It was linked to multiply.com lang pala. Haha I already hit publish before even checking the link I opened. Tss. :)) Anyway, where did you buy it? 🙂

    • March 17, 2013 / 2:56 pm

      I bought it from Carefreeshopper.multiply.com. Almost all my MAC lippies are from her (Armie) 🙂

  10. March 17, 2013 / 11:05 am

      Hi Raven! From carefreeshopper.multiply.com 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to have a MAC lipstick. I was tempted on your several post of MAC lipstick that you own hehe. Anyways, I’d like to purchase it online because its cheaper kaya lang I’m not sure kung legit ung store na mabibilhan ko over multiply. Is it ok to know the exact name where you purchase yours? thanks much 🙂

    • March 17, 2013 / 2:58 pm

      I buy almost all my MAC lipsticks from carefreeshopper.multiply.com 🙂 Free ship pa if through Multiply yung order. I can vouch for her legitimacy, sis 🙂

  12. March 17, 2013 / 11:58 am

    The only thing hindering me from buying it is the packaging! Gah. Still thinking! But by the time I decide, it’ll be all sold out already. You should wear more reds. 🙂 Suits you. 🙂

      Thanks Tina!! Parang pare-pareho kasi red lipsticks for me eh, either bright or dark red lang 🙂 haha. Yah, the packaging is so cutesy that I think only Archiecomics lovers lang magkakagusto!

  13. March 17, 2013 / 2:11 pm

    I purchased one of the Archie’s Girls lipsticks too, think the name is girl next door?

    • March 17, 2013 / 3:00 pm

      Ooh yes that’s another great color! Sadly, it doesnt work on my skintone 🙁

  14. March 17, 2013 / 4:00 pm

    You’ve convinced me to go have a look at this collection!

  15. March 18, 2013 / 6:52 am

    I love this post coz I can so totally relate. Except I went to Filbar’s. Haha. However, the OC hoarder in me didn’t give in. I didn’t even get a Wonder Woman one went the limited eds came out coz of my OC-ness. 🙁

    LE packaging doesn’t have an appeal on me too because I want my lipsticks (in the same brand) to look uniform. Weird! But not in this case, I have this and Betty Bright – all for the love of Archie Comics. 🙂

    MAC Ronnie Red is such a gorgeous colour! I wish I had gotten my hands on it. Sadly I will have to buy it on ebay for more I guess!
