MASCARAS are my best friends because I have small deep set eyes and they need lot of work to catch some eye . So it has become my daily routine to conceal and line my eyes plus apply loads of mascara to my short and thin lashes (*such a pain it is*). False lashes are not my cup of tea so I hunt for those dramatic type of mascaras every now and then. Today’s review is from our favourite brand which we all got wheeeeee about (*yes it’s MAC*). This one is from the Archie’s Collection of MAC and it is the Betty one. MAC divided their Archie’s Collection into two categories- Betty and Veronica. Both the girls are unique in their own way and the collection is inspired by both of the characters.

About MAC Archie’s Collection Mascara- Betty
The ravishing rivals for Archie’s affection inspire a colour collection celebrating their iconic personas. Smoulder in deep and seductive tones inspired 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..
Packaging: I love the cute, girly, fun packaging of the whole Archie’s collection . It’s a long white slim tube which Betty imprinted on it with some cute little red hearts. You just can’t control yourself from falling in love with the packaging.. <3
My Experience with MAC Archie’s Collection Mascara- Betty
Betty is a girl next door as described by MAC and I relate with her character, I don’t like to go the bold way like Veronica (*Okay I know I sound stupid here discussing Betty and Veronica*). Coming to the actual product now, first of all I love how big the wand is. It just gives me hell lot of volume and make my lashes really visible and eye-catching (*that’s all I wanted*).
The formula is neither dry nor liquid. It’s thick enough to dry in 10 seconds and thin enough to coat your lashes evenly avoiding clumping afterwards. I must say the actual results are visible when you curl your lashes before the application. There’s only one thing that I don’t like about it the wand is too wide and it kind of separates lashes widely.
This doesn’t gives that fuller look to the lashes which you get from the falsies. Though I have no problem in that because I use it as a thick mascara to get ample of volume and length. To achieve fuller lashes I use a thin wand mascara after this and then I am a happy girl .
The staying power is ah-mazing because it stays on and on and oooonnnn. And you need a oil-based remover to remove it completely.
P.S- You can see my Before and After to feel more jealous
So summing it up.
What I like about MAC Archie’s Collection Mascara- Betty:
- Gives ample of volume and length.
- Changes the look of lashes dramatically.
- Stays forever.
- Didn’t irritate my eyes.
- Doesn’t clumps.
- Perfect consistency.
- Jet Black.
- The packaging of course. <3
- Fulfills the claims.
- It is everything you need from a Mascara.
What I don’t like about MAC Archie’s Collection Mascara.
- Needs an oil-based remover.
- The wand could have been better.
- Limited Edition.
Do I recommend this Product? If you need a chubby wand mascara to give you ample of length and volume and you don’t hesitate to spend an extra minute using a thin wand mascara after it then it is a Yay from my side.
My Rating: 4.6/5 (*Yes I am being kanjoos in the ratings *)
