the search for mac betty bright..




I was vacationing in Boracay when the local MAC launched the Archie's Girls collection. Bummer right? I forgot.



Though I’m a big fan of Archie comics (I still have some for bathroom reading..lol), I just wanted one product..Betty Bright. Wanted a lot.   And when I got back in Manila, I called every MAC store but unfortunately, I was too late..its already out of stock. I even tried the mac chat online if they can provide me one, but still, no. Local sellers if not out of stock are selling it 2x the price! Way to high for a lippie but I could have gave in a few days as I'm desperate. But good thing someone replied to my swap message in makeupalley..and tadah!! Wheeeeh! I got one. I've never wanted a lipstick so badly. And hey it didn’t disappoint!







BRIGHT Milky light coral and pink



It reminds me of mac viva glam Nicki (coz its BRIGHT!), only it's softer/muted and less pink.
 

swatch on hand mac betty bright lipstick!

MAC lipstick in Betty Bright is really vivid in person. More of "what you see is what you get" shade. . The lippies I think closest to this shade are mac everhip and mac viva glam nicki.  everhip more softer with less pink and viva glam nicki same intensity but with no hints of peach/coral. This will definitely not be an mlbb/ylbb/natural/day shade but if you're someone who loves wearing loud colors, this is it. It is a nice to have product but not something wearable everyday.

So after all the efforts, was it worth it? yes.   This for me is something too pretty to pass up.
