The building of a 1940's wardrobe
Oh, very nifty! I had a favorite red lipstick shade from Revlon for years...still looking for its equal! Will have to try Certainly Red :)
I nearly picked up a couple yesterday, despite having some that I haven't reviewed on the blog yet...naughty naughty!
Looking at the colours I wished Revlon was available in Germany at all. Fire and Ice looks like something I´d wear every day...
They don't seem to be available in Sweden either.
Thank you! What a wonderful and useful list.We just need to go abroad and shop old fashioned Revlon cosmetics...
I get lipstick cravings, too! I have a little sampler packet of Revlon lipsticks from the '90s, and Raven Red is in there, it's a great vintage shade.
Huh. Raven Red was still being made as a lipstick in either the late 90s or very early 2000s; perhaps you could find some at one of those websites that sell cosmetics that are no longer made? It is a great color- I still have a bit of a tube. I had no idea 'Cherries in the Snow' was being made again- they stopped it for awhile. It's a very blue red and I LOVE it!
Rowenna: I never had any Revlon lipstick. I'd like to try some now, though! :)Lady Cherry: I look forward to read your reviews when you get to them!Katrin: I think you can order Revlon from Drugstore.com to Europe, but I'm not sure what the postage would be. The lipsticks are quite cheap though.monika & Kristina: You can get a few colours from this Swedish webstore:http://www.fashionqueen.se/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=19&products_id=436&osCsid=jcpt55g3r7s8d8q80hk429acq7Sadly just Love That Red from this chart, though.Tia: Yes, it looks like a very nice shade!Laurie Brown: That's a very good idea, I ill check that out. :) I have heard rave reviews on Cherries in the Snow- it's definitely one I want to check out!
I worked for Revlon in the mid-90s and remember Raven Red being around (in fact, I have a rather worn-down tube myself that is semi-hoarded) then. I agree it may be worth looking around online! Next time I'm at the drugstore I'll have to look and see if it is still made. It's definitely a dramatic colour. The other option might be one of the discontinued makeup companies. You can order something no longer made, though sometimes they ask you send a little of it if you can find it to make it easier for them.
Jen: It does seem to be available at some sellers- I just need to find one that ships to Sweden. :) The nail polish seems easier to find, but it would be fun to be able to match lips and nails.
