Quickie: Be Betty Bright This Spring

I somehow got my hands on a tube of the Betty Bright lipstick from the MAC x Archie’s Girls collection, and I am over the moon.

It’s described as a light vibrant peach, but it looks very coral, with a strong pink tone, to me. Betty Bright is a satin finish, which I’ve never had. All my MAC lipsticks—only two so far—are Lustres. The texture is pretty good, the coverage is fairly opaque even with just one swipe.

It’s exactly like Betty Cooper’s pretty pink pout. Doesn’t it look exactly like the lipstick she is wearing on the MEGA cover?

If you’re not feeling this bright of a pink for Spring (or in our case, Summer), here are a few suggestions I have:

Spring Lip Swatches

L-R: shu uemura x Karl Lagerfeld (Celebrity Beige), MAC Archie’s Girls (Betty Bright), Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (La Favorite), Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait (Gourmandise)

I think I want to try out a bright eye and nude lip combo next time. Just to stray away from the neutrals and be adventurous. 😀 One of the reasons why I like makeup is because it’s super fun. What’s your go-to look for Spring?


  1. Carina! I got to swatch this on my lips yesyerday at a MAC Counter and I want to have it! Although, the color reminds me of Revlon’s Pink
    In the Afternoon? Does your sister have that shade? I want to know if pink in the afternoon is a dupe of betty be bright when swatched heavily.. Or in this case since Pink in the Afternoon came first then the MAC is a dupe. Haha.

    • Hi Patty, they’re not at all similar. Pink in the Afternoon is a bit like old rose, and is more mauve-y, and Betty Bright is well, brighter, and leans more coral.

      • Thanks Carina! My eyes might be decieving me but I think I found a possible dupe from Etude.. Kasi naman sold out agad! 😦

    I have been wanting one of those lipsticks from the Archie Collection. But so far, all I have is the Cream Soda blush and a Pearlmatte Face Power… It looks really pretty. 🙂

    • Which Pearlmatte powder did you get? 🙂 I really wanted to get Cream Soda, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to show up on my cheeks at all!

  3. Jean Melgar says

    I got the Betty Bright and Daddy’s Little Girl and I also think they look like the ones they are wearing on the MEGA cover. Fun! I’m still trying to figure out a good summer look for Betty Bright. 🙂

    • Haha that’s awesome! 🙂 I think some neutrals or a subtle green eye would be a fun look 🙂

  4. Hey guys! Did you know that that Mega cover was made by the official illustrators of Archie comics? That’s why they’re wearing not just clothes from local designers, but makeup from the actual MAC collection. 😉
