La Boum (1980)

Poupette (Denise Grey) is the great-grandmother of the protagonist, a sort of deux-ex-machina character who helps Vic to achieve her goal – finding true love.

There are some interesting products on her dressing table. The first is a bottle of Givenchy III, a chypre floral creation by Jean François Latty and Raymond Chaillan launched in 1970.

The small pale pink pot in front of the perfume is a Bourjois blush.

There’s another perfume on the vanity: it’s Azzaro, a chypre woody fragrance created by Jean Martel and launched in 1975.

Topāzu (1992)

There are three interesting products on Ai’s table.

The first from the left is Yves Saint Laurent Paris, the floral powdery fragrance created by Sophia Grojsman and launched in 1983.

The glass bottle with white stopper is Clarins Huile Anti-Eau body treatment oil.

Last, a bottle of Chanel liquid foundation, possibly Teint Naturel.

Tall Girl 2 (2022)

Jodi (Ava Michelle) is sitting at a dressing table after performing as Kim McAfee in the musical Bye Bye Birdie.

There are several beauty products on the dressing table.

The tall brown bottle on the left is Hask Argan Oil repairing shampoo.

Right in front of Jodi there are two Noxzema products. The tube is the anti-blemish daily scrub, while the tall jar is the deep cleansing cream.

The pink tube with green cap is none other than Maybelline Great Lash mascara.

The black tube is Wet n Wild Mega Last matte lip colour.

When Jack (Griffin Gluck) joins Jodi backstage, we can see a couple more products.

There’s a can of TRESemmé Tres mousse.

Last but not least, two bottles of OPI nail polishes.

Madres paralelas (2021)

Soon after giving birth to her daughter, the photographer Janis gets back to work: her first assignment is a still-life photoshoot. All the lipsticks in the shot above are by Lancôme. Here the prop masters have mixed tubes and caps from different lipsticks; they have made things more complex also by choosing caps from old packagings.

First from the left, L’Absolu Rouge lipstick in French Bisou, a limited-edition shade housed in a vegan leather case.

The second lipstick from the left is L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream but the cap belongs to another lipstick – the classic L’Absolu Rouge with an old packaging (the cap doesn’t have the bottom gold band).

The third product from the left is L’Absolu Mademoiselle Shine long-lasting conditioning lipstick in Mademoiselle Stands Out.

The fourth lipstick is a hybrid: the tube belongs to L’Absolu Rouge, while the cap is from an old version of L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte. Even in this case, the cap doesn’t have the bottom gold band that more recent versions of this lipstick have.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2021)

TV preacher Tammy Faye (Jessica Chastain) has a very distinctive make-up and hairstyle, so it’s not surprising to see her dressing table packed with products.

The green lipstick tube is by Revlon from the Moon Drops line, first launched in the late 1950s. The lipstick collection, which included 20 shades, was launched in 1964.

The perfume on her vanity is Estee Lauder Private Collection, a green floral fragrance created by Vincent Marcello and launched in 1973.

In the background there’s a can of Aquanet all-purpose hairspray.
