Vintage Revlon Lipstick Colors Still Available Today

By RetroRuth

So, if you saw my post about the four Vintage Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks being reissued, then this post should come as no surprise. I loved those vintage shades so much, I decided I am going to get the rest of Revlon’s vintage colors, which are part of their permanent line!  I have managed to get Blase Apricot and Persian Melon so far, but I still have a few I need to collect. I am very excited about Cherries In the Snow, I heard that it is beautiful! Certainly Red

    I’ve heard that Cherries in the Snow was Marilyn Monroe’s favorite color. Of course, I can’t prove that.

    If you ever need any colors you can’t get where you live, I can get them all here. Sometimes colors like Cherries in the Snow are sold out, but I have been able to catch it after a new shipment arrives. Let me know if you ever need me to pick up some for you.

    I should really try Cherries in the Snow one of these days – perhaps it might be a suitable replacement for my Raven Red! Revlon’s got quite a few original colours available in their nail polish line as well.

    I know the color “Stormy Pink” was released in at some point in the mid-late 50s. It’s a great color.

    My best friend and I were all about Revlon’s Silver City Pink in the 80’s. As I aged, my coloring changed and I now prefer reds with a blue undertone.. probably close to Cherries in the Snow, but darker.

    My grandmother would always tell me how she loved wearing Cherries in the Snow. Revlon had re-released some of these colors in the mid-2000’s. I picked up some of the lipstick and nail polish for her then and she was tickled pink. I have tried the lipstick and unfortunately it’s not a good color for me. However, the nail polish looks fabulous on.

    As a former TWA flight attendant, I remember being told by one of our more senior stews that back in the ’60s when she was hired, they were only allowed to wear one of these 2 lipstick colors (which had to match the nail color) – “Persian Melon” & “Fire & Ice”.
