Euphoria S02E02 (Out of Touch)

There’s Kleancolor Eye’m single glitter cream shadow on Maddie’s dressing table.

When the camera quickly moves over the dressing table, an array of nail polishes can be seen.

Among them, a nail polish by Sally Hansen (in the clear plastic container) and two nail polishes by OPI – silver glitter and red.

Thanks to Alessandra for submitting this post.

Riverdale S06E04 (The Witching Hour[s])

Poppy Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) is one of the protagonists of this episode, inspired to The Hours (2002) by Stephen Daldry, based on the novel with the same title by Michael Cunningham. Her storyline is set in the 1950s: she’s an independent woman who practices the arts of magic, through which she tries to help the women of Rivervale trapped in unhappy or boring lives.

She holds beauty lessons in her own mansion, so it’s interesting to see what’s included in her kit.

In the round train case there’s a box of Coty Airspun loose face powder.

The lipstick she puts on a red lacquered tray is Color Riche by L’Oreal.

The red nail polish bottles she puts on gold standing mirrors are from the Color Riche line by L’Oreal.

Younger S07E01 (A Decent Proposal)

We don’t get to see Diana (Miriam Shor), the head of Marketing at Empirical, much this season. After getting married to Enzo, she’s spending an endless honeymoon in Italy. That’s how Lauren starts working at Empirical: she’s supposed to assist Diana and report to her, but she ends up replacing her.

When Lauren opens a drawer from Diana’s desk, we see some symbols of her power, which obviously include one of her statement necklaces.

There are a L’Oreal lipstick (possibly in a red shade), LA Girl Glossy plumping lip gloss and a red nail polish by OPI.

From a first, quick glimpse at Limi’s dressing table in E03, the only perfume that stands out is J’Adore, the 1999 Calice Becker creation for Dior, but there’s more.

Thankfully in E09 we get it! On the left side of Limi’s table there’s a Lalique Clairfontaine bottle with the beautiful lily-of-the-valley stopper.

The white box contains a bottle of Christian Louboutin nail polish.

J’Adore makes another appearance, along with Chanel No. 5.

The lovely apple-shaped bottle of Lolita Lempicka can be seen on Limi’s table, too. This is not a surprising choice, because this fruity gourmand fragrance, created by Annick Menardo and launched in 1997, suits the photographer’s personality.

The purple balloon bottle next to Lolita Lempicka is Lanvin Éclat d’Arpège, created by Karine Dubreuil and launched in 2002.

Last, there’s a box of Guerlain Météorites powder pearls.

Thanks to missanneiv for first telling me about this show.

Pose S03E03 (The Trunk)

In this episode we’re brought back to 1983, when Elektra (Dominique Jackson) is trying hard to achieve her goals and to help her three daughters (Blanca, Candy and Lulu). They share a dingy flat, but this doesn’t let Elektra down: it probably gives her a reason to fight and improve her condition.

The deep connection between Elektra and perfumes is nothing new: she name-dropped Caron Poivre in Season 1 and I spotted Givenchy Ysatis on her dressing table in Season 2. I’m glad we get to know her better through another perfume.

In the early 1980s she wears White Linen by Estee Lauder, a floral aldehydic fragrance created by Sophia Grojsman and launched in 1978.

In 1983 this was the advert of the perfume: model Karen Graham, portrayed by Victor Skrebneski, was wearing a chic white outfit with blue details and looked relaxed in an elegant mansion. The imagery conjured here is so different from the world of Elektra, but it represents a goal to reach – money, luxury, comfort.

On her dressing table there’s also an orange OPI nail polish.

Pose S03E01 (On the Run)

Lemar Khan (Jason A. Rodriguez), a former member of the House of Abundance, Ferocity, Evangelista and Wintour, is now the father of the House of Khan and he’s ready to challenge his former mother, Elekra Evangelista.

On his dressing table we can see a bottle of Thayers rose petal and witch hazel alcohol-free toner and a bright red nail polish by Sally Hansen.

There’s also a pump bottle of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula moisturizing hand wash.

Bless This Mess S01E04 (Predators)

Several beauty products in Rio’s bedroom (from left to right):

The green bottle is Tata Harper hydrating floral essence

The tube is Reverence Aromatique hand balm by Aesop

The white bottle is Kiehl’s ultra facial moisturizer

The metallic grey nail polish is by Essie
