Gold Case

Where can I find the names of designer lipstick brands during the mid-fifties?

I have looked all over the net and can't find what I'm looking for. I am particularly interested in a color called "Mondrian Coral." These lipsticks came in long brushed gold cases that flattened out and mimicked the shape of paint brushes. They had the names of famous painters. These were not drug store lipsticks, but sold in fashionable department stores.

They were Juliette Marglen's Heavenly Colors for Lips and nails. Here's a clip from an ad:

You can SEE the product here but to read the fine print you must register for the site but each of the links contained on the page below has an ad. Very cool! Interesting question....

Colors include Rembrandt Ruby, Degas Mauve, Lautrec Orange, et. al. Print ads for Juliette Marglen lip and nail producs are very collectable, it seems. You can find them throughout the internet and, of course, there are quite a few on EBay, though I could find no trace of the actual product or even, empty containers left.

Hope this was what you were looking for.

edit - geez, I almost forgot. Check out Besame Cosmetics for a look at "vintage look" cosmetics today along with some great link re: vintage beauty. They will even do a little research for you, I believe.

If you still have a container of any of these colors and would like them reproduced, this company is great!
