Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart) is getting ready for a photoshoot in her beautiful Hollywood mansion. There are some beauty items on her vanity, two of which are by Avon.
The first is the dark red jar, which contains body lotion (in the film, the make-up artist puts it on Jean’s hands). As I’ve already pointed out, I think it’s the body lotion of Imari, which had the packaging in this exact shade of red. Imari perfume and its bodycare line were originally launched in 1985, though, so this could be another example of historical inaccuracy.
The other Avon product is an atomiser with a funky black and white Paisley pattern: it’s Patterns, a perfume launched in 1969, so in line with the time in which the film is set.
Thanks to Hillary, the curator of the Makeup Museum, for the Avon Patterns id.

Aw, thank you so much for the shout-out and for linking to the site! Once again I’m bewildered that I was actually able to identify something.
