I love vintage and old makeup ads, they are so inspiring and it’s nice to see how the art of makeup has developed. Even if you look at the makeup ads which were made 5 years ago you can see a huge difference!
I have so many of them so I’ve picked some to share with you. If you have any vintage or old makeup ads or just those that you like a lot – I’d be very happy if you could share with us!
This is an old Maybelline ad (1952?)
I am sure that you all know that October is a month of Breast Cancer Awareness. And it’s great that a lot of beauty companies take a part in it! You can find a lot of beauty products which are marked with the pink ribbon which means that the profits (all or part) from those products will be donated to the Breat Canser Organizations.
Be sure that you also take a part and get yourself something. My choice is Becca Cosmetics Glossy Lip Tint in Julep: 15% of proceeds will be donated to Breast Canser Network of Strength.
If you are not familiar with BECCA’s Lip Tints you can read my review here.Read More

I’ve been wearing Balenciaga Paris perfumes all week and I’ve been loving it a lot! I have to say that I love everything about them: the elegant bottle and the design, the promo photos with the amazing Charlotte Gainsbourg photographed by Steven Meisel and the scent of course.
It is created by Olivier Polge and described as:
” Luminous, sophisticated fragrance with beautiful ingredients shaped in an innovative structure. Both modern and classic, just like traditional haute perfumery . A Chypre Violet with the green, fresh signature of the flower and its leaves, blender into a precious harmony of pure woods . A refined, feminine fragrance with a unique trail”
It’s a wonderful fragrance with violet, airy blossom and delicate peppery notes which is great for day time, office or evening. It has an amazing lasting power and you can feel it even at the end of the day!
And here is the official promo photo and exciting infomation!Read More
