When it comes to the presence of beauty products, accessories, make-up and perfumes in TV shows and movies, the line dividing blatant advertising and the need for props in a production is sometimes very blurred. I personally see it as a form of art, the way in which property masters and set decorators contribute in establishing a certain atmosphere and in expressing the personality of characters.
I first started identifying make-up products in movies and tv shows in 2010: my very first post was about NARS compacts and lip lacquer appearing in Sex and the City S03E07 (Drama Queens)
One year earlier, in 2009, I had spotted NARS lipsticks, Diptyque Olene and much more in the super-busy bathroom cabinet of Sofia Coppola: I guess it was the spark that started the fire
Other ids I did in 2010/2011 include NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Damned, spotted in True Blood S03; NARS eyeshadows and lip lacquers in Anand Tucker’s Shopgirl; NARS lipsticks and compacts in David Frankel’s The Devil Wears Prada; NARS loose powder in Sex and the City S04E02 (The Real Me); NARS lipgloss in Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation.
Perfumes seen in movies and TV shows have been largely discussed in perfume forums and blogs; here you will find most of them (properly credited) and others I’ve spotted myself.
The sightings of make-up items, beauty products and tools are mine, if not stated otherwise. The screencaps are mine, if not stated otherwise.

I’m really enjoying your blog… Tempted to cultivate a Perfume list and you’re my curator.
Thanks for the appreciation 😊
Just wanted to say I love your blog. Every time I watch Bridgets Jones’ Diary I find myself wondering which lipstick she is wearing haha. Was wondering if you might please attempt to discover it? I imagine I’m unlikely to be your only appreciative follower haha. Love everything you do! Thank you! ❤️ Xx
Thank you! Thanks for the appreciation ❤️ I watched Bridget Jones’ Diary many years ago and have no memory of a lipstick, but will definitely try to find it for you.
