Archie Comics + MAC = pure love.

The San Diego Comic Con kicks off this weekend, and to celebrate, MAC Cosmetics released the news that they’ll be teaming up with THE Archie Comics for their latest beauty collection. Eeeee! The full color line, inspired by the Betty and Veronica characters, will launch in spring 2013, but that’s not all! If you’re lucky enough to actually attend the convention this weekend, artist Dan Parent (you know, the guy that illustrates all those Archie books ;)) will be showing off his killer skills with custom caricatures and illustration demonstrations at the MAC Gaslamp store in San Diego. MAC’s in-store artists will also be doing makeovers modeled after the famous Archie ladies. CA-UTE.
While no specific information has been released yet, we can’t help but wonder what kind of beauty products MAC will dream up! Betty is the blonde girl next door while Veronica is the raven-haired vixen, and with two total opposites, who KNOWS what kind of pieces they come out with! We’re guessing super thick mascara, tons of lips glosses, and bright pink blush. But—side note—did y’all know this isn’t Archie’s only collab happening at the moment? It was just announced that a new comic book series called Archie Meets Glee will also be launching in 2013. (And yes, we mean that musical TV show Glee.) Crazy, huh? Welp, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for these ladies, but you’ve still got time to decide which girl you relate to most—are you more of a sweet Betty or badass Veronica? Let us know in the comments below!
