I was so excited when I got an invitation to attend the grand launch of MAC Cosmetics Archie’s Girls Spring Collection 2013 in Cebu City. The timing was perfect! I was actually in Cebu for the Social Media Influencers Summit 2013 and I always welcome additional events to attend especially if time permits it anyway. So I immediately said yes to the invite-only MAC Archie’s Girls launch in Cebu!
The MAC Archie’s Girls makeup collection 2013 Cebu launch was held last March 16, 2013 at the Ayala Center Cebu Activity Center. The place was packed with so many eager MAC Cosmetics fans!
I spotted TV host Bianca Gonzales, celebrity makeup artist Jigs Mayuga and fashion bloggers Kryz Uy and Camille Co. I also met Atty. Christina Garcia-Frasco, the daughter of Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia and wife of Liloan Mayor Duke Frasco, and Mike Acebedo Lopez, who’s a part of Boy Abunda’s “The Bottomline.” It was a nice chance meeting, actually! It was truly a pleasure to finally meet the two of them 🙂 They were both so nice!
Of course, I also spent a considerable amount of time inspecting the stars of the show that day — the Betty and Veronica makeup line! 😀 The items were sooo pretty!!!
I wanted to buy the Betty Bright lipstick, the Betty Powder Blush and the Ronnie Red lipstick but can you believe they all got sold out?! Apparently, a lot of the guests who came in early practically spent serious cash that day and the stocks got wiped out! Crazy! So with a heavy heart, I just asked Jaja and Vanessa, the two lovely ladies behind Bigseed PR, to let me know right away once stocks are available :/ My birthday’s coming up in a few days and I want to treat myself to those goodies!
By the way, can I just say that I was so impressed with how the event was handled? From the food to the setup to the “Archie” to the “Betty” and “Veronica” to the dancers – no details were spared. I loved how the waiters served soda pop – exactly how we all saw it on our beloved Archie’s Comics!
Congratulations MAC Cosmetics, Bigseed PR and to everyone involved in the Cebu launch! It was truly a lovely afternoon 🙂 Thank you so much for the special invitation! 😀
