Soon after Iris (Kara Hayward) meets the newcomer Maggie (Liana Liberato), they become friends. Maggie decides to give Iris a makeover, so they go shopping for cosmetics. The beauty counter at the department store they go to displays make-up and skincare products.
On the far left in the screencap above there’s a cardboard table display containing several tin boxes of Palmolive Cashmere Bouquet face powder.
More products can be seen thanks to a close-up.
The two jars with pink lids contain Woodbury skin cream.
There are three boxes of Coty Airspun loose face powder: the classic version has the yellow box, while the peach box contains a perfumed version (the scent in this case is L’Aimant).
Federica (Nancy Brilli) is a glamourous woman who invites her high-school class mates to her beautiful mansion 15 years after their diploma. They will reminisce the best years of their lives but also bitterly reflect on their present. The opening sequence is set in the hostess’ bedroom, where’s she’s applying her make-up.
The first object that captures the attention is Giorgio Beverly Hills, the tuberose bomb created by Bob Aliano in 1981. This perfume, so popular in the 1980s, makes us understand Federica is one who doesn’t shy away from bold fashion and fragrance statements.
On the dressing table there’s also a bottle of Christian Dior clear nail polish.
The guests soon arrive at Federica’s villa, but she’s still in her bedroom. She will soon go downstairs to meet her friends, but in this short scene we can take another look at her vanity.
The miniature bottle by the mirror is Azzaro 9 by Loris Azzaro, another white floral fragrance launched in 1984.
The round box with gold accents and hot pink cap is Yves Saint Laurent Parisperfumed body cream.
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.
