Kissy face

Recently while searching the interwebs, I came across one of the original ads for the Revlon lipstick color, "Cherries in the snow."  I had mentioned this lipstick in an earlier post, while talking about true vintage colors that were still on the market today.  This got me searching for other brands that still carried original color lines from the 30s-60s.  While I couldn't find another list anywhere, I learned that brands like Elizabeth Arden, Max Factor, Maybellline, Revlon, and Cover Girl (in the 60s) had entered the cosmetics markets.  It's really interesting to see the progression of makeup styles, including lip shape and popular colors.  Here is a brief rundown...
