The Vintage Revlon Make-Up Shades To Add To Your Collection Today

by - September 04, 2020

Revlon was established in 1932 with just nail polish to start, the company didn't introduce lipsticks until the 40s. Most advertising was in black and white until 1945 and then they were vibrantly colored photographs in magazines. I absolutely LOVE vintage make-up advertisements and Revlon's are beyond glamorous. Revlon's campaigns were beautiful and very luxurious but in drugstores and super markets at an affordable price for housewives shopping for their families and I can see how they worked so well with product sales. Some of these original shades are still made today and I have collected a few to share. Unfortunately these shades are scattered all over different drugstores. Some only have a shade or two. I have seen certain shades at Walmart, CVS and Target. I actually find it kind of fun to search for them but I found most on Amazon to make it easy and will add the links below.
