This is so exciting for those of you who are makeup geeks and love all things retro. Revlon is bringing back five iconic lip shades from their vault this spring. They actually put this to a vote on their Facebook page last year, and I remember going through the shades and researching them. Snow Peach was launched in 1956, and is a gorgeous bright peachy-pink shade. The original tagline for this shade was, “Beauty is within your reach when you wear Snow Peach.” I found the full display with all five shades in my local CVS store tonight, and I will probably go back for the rest of the shades, just because I’m a huge makeup completionist, and want to own the other ones as well.
Here is the official commercial for Revlon’s “Snow Peach,” dated all the way back to 1956!
I find the history of makeup to be incredibly fascinating, and I am always in awe when I realize I am wearing a makeup brand or shade that is iconic and has been around for generations.
It’s easy to see why Snow Peach was and is so iconic and loved. It’s a gorgeous bright coral-pink shade that is incredibly flattering on any skin tone. It’s rich in color but can be built up to be more on the sheer side or more opaque.
I personally ADORE this shade. It’s incredibly flattering, applied wonderfully, and it’s perfect for spring and summer. I don’t think there is a single person this shade wouldn’t look good on.
I am super excited that I was able to get my hands on the relaunch of this shade, and I may even go to the store and buy a backup of Snow Peach. I am fairly certain that these shades are being relaunched as part of a Spring 2014 promotion, so they won’t be permanent. I paid around $7.99 USD for this shade. Keep a look out for the display at your local drugstore! There are also four other shades they are relaunching:
Above, you can see the year that each iconic lipstick was launched in. I also purchased “Jungle Peach,” which I will swatch on the blog tomorrow. I am thinking I will end up going back for the rest of the shades, though. CVS is currently having a buy one, get one 50% off on all Revlon products, so it helps offset the cost of buying multiple items!
Are you looking forward to any of these iconic shades?
