Every girl who has read the Archie Comics series has asked herself, “Am I a Betty, or a Veronica?”

Archie Comics, a long staple of my overnight camp days, announced this past summer it would be teaming with MAC Cosmetics to create a line of products inspired by the two iconic characters.

For those that need a refresher, Archie Andrews was every girl’s fictitious comic-book boyfriend caught in a love triangle between blond girl-next-door Betty Cooper and brunette rich girl Veronica Lodge .

The line, aptly called Archie’s Girls, includes dark shades for spoiled Veronica and girly hues for innocent Betty. It is now available at select department stores.

Seriously, this collection could not get any cuter.

Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
