SDCC ’12 | MAC Cosmetics to launch Archie’s Girls makeup line
After partnering last year with DC Comics for a collection of Wonder Woman makeup — Themyscira mascara! Obey Me nail polish! — MAC Cosmetics is heading to Riverdale.
Archie Comics announced today that it’s teaming with the cosmetics giant to launch a line in spring 2013 called MAC Archie’s Girls that will “celebrate the iconic looks of Betty and Veronica.” Although fans will have to wait a while to get their hands on the products, MAC will be promoting the line Wednesday and Thursday in San Diego with an event at its Gaslamp Quarter store featuring Archie cartoonist Dan Parent. Apparently, you’ll be able to get a Betty- or Veronica-style makeover, and a sketch from Parent.
