agentcarters01e03_bornunicornThere are two interesting make-up items on Peggy Carter’s dressing table.

I’ve always known this brand for its superglamourous advertisement campaigns and for its nail polishes, but I had no idea it made regular make-up, too. Furthermore, I had no idea it’s still in the business.

Back in the 1940s it produced make-up items, too. I don’t know exactly what the round box in the screencap above contained, but I guess it was rouge or face powder.
