Sugar & Spice (2001)

There are several interesting beauty products on Diane’s dressing table.

The two tall bottles on the left are bodycare products by Bath & Body Works – Heart’s Desire moisture-rich body lotion and matching body wash.

On the glass tray on the right there’s basically a Clinique corner.

There are two bottles of clarifying lotion.

The aqua green jar with silver cap is Advanced Cream.

There are also two silver tubes of Dramatically Different lipstick.

Last, two bottles of Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion.

Thanks to my friend Jennifer who identified the Bath & Body Works for me.

Valley of the Dolls (1967)

Recent graduate Anne Welles starts working at a theatrical agency but soon learns how cruel and ruthless the world of theatre is. She’s ready to quit but changes her mind after meeting her boss’s business partner, Lyon Burke (Paul Burke).

On their first meeting she drops her handbag on the floor and one of her make-up items is left on the office carpet.

Lyon picks it up: it’s a lipstick. Funny how he immediately checks the shade on the bottom of the tube.

The shade is Barely Pink, a real shade by Revlon! It was part of the Colors on the Naked Side 1963 collection, which included “barely-there pales with a ladylike lustre.”

If you are into nude pink shades or are a fan of the Mark Robson film, you’re lucky: Barely Pink is still produced by Revlon.

Do Revenge (2022)

Drea (Camila Mendes) working on her sewing machine is a good occasion to let us take a look at her dressing table, which is full of interesting products.

First of all, there’s a tube of Glossier Body Hero daily perfecting cream.

There are some perfume bottles on the left, one of which is quite surprising.

The tall fluted bottle with gold stopper is a Bernard Chant creation from 1965 – the chypre woody Imprevu by Coty. It’s such an unusual sighting that I would really love to know how it was picked by the prop masters. Did they want to give a vintage feel to the dressing table?

There’s also a Glossier beauty bag.

In the white ceramic bowl there are several Glossier make-up products, among which the Skywash sheer matte lid tint in Terra (burnt sienna).

On the far right side of the table there are two skincare products by Joanna Vargas – the Vitamin C face wash and the daily serum.

Working Girl (1988)

When Cyn (Joan Cusak) opens a bathroom cabinet, there are several interesting skincare and bodycare products.

Starting from the top shelf, from left to right:

The white jar with grey cap is Lancôme Forté-Vital firming eye cream. The black bottle with grey stopper is from the same brand, but I haven’t been able to identify the exact product.

There are four bottles by Erno Laszlo. The first from the left is definitely an oil or a lotion, while the others probably contained Shake-It tinted treatment.

On the second shelf there are three products by Crabtree & Evelyn. The tin container of talcum powder is part of the Damask Rose collection. Next there’s a bottle of Rosewater foaming bath gel and a soap box.

The box on the third shelf belongs to the bath gel on the second shelf.
