MAC Archie’s Girls – Betty Cream Soda Blush: Photos, Swatches and Review

Posted by

There are only two blushes total in the Archie’s Girls collection… One for Veronica and one for Betty. Each one works well with the other products on each side of the collection and are both really high quality. As I said before, the products in this collection are top notch and these are some of the best blushes MAC has released with recent collections.

The Archie’s Girls blushes come in the same white boxes with the Archie’s Girls logo on it. The packaging is also special and is a glossy white plastic, rather than the usual MAC black, with either Betty or Veronica on the clear lid of the blush.

MAC Powder Blushes typically give me about 6-8 hours of wear, depending on the finish. Cream Soda was no different for wear time.

This is a limited edition blush and is available now at any MAC store, counter, or online at I believe that it may be sold out online, so check your local MAC. Since there is special packaging, it sells for $22 rather than the usual $21 and contains the same 6 g / 0.21 US ozthat other MAC Powder Blushes do.

Cream Soda (Satin):   This blush is a “light neutral coral” with a Satin finish… It’s more of a light, warm, peach with very subtle pink undertones. The satiny sheen doesn’t really show up until you layer the blush a bit… Then you start to see they beautiful, golden sheen. Of course the color doesn’t really show up on anyone darker than a light-medium skintone until you layer it either. It’s definitely best for pale to light skin, as it can look dry and chalky on anyone with more than medium-dark skin. To get good coverage and color payoff with this blush, I suggest applying it with a dense brush like a MAC 116 or 129. It applies very smoothly and doesn’t feel overly powdery, so it’s easy to blend out and doesn’t feel dry on the skin.
