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.

Gli indifferenti (1964)

Lisa (Shelley Winters) and her friend Maria Grazia (Paulette Goddard) are spending some time together while relaxing: they discuss about the upcoming social events they want to go to.

On a small table behind Lisa there’s a splash bottle of Guerlain Eau de Cologne Impériale, created by Pierre François Pascal Guerlain for Empress Eugenie in 1853.

On a table between the two friends there’s a bottle of Acqua distillata alle rose by Roberts, a classic rose water that’s available everywhere in Italy.

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.

Chambre 212 (2019)

There are some interesting beauty products in Maria and Richard’s bathroom.

In the glass cabinet there’s a small bottle of Chanel No. 5, a Diptyque candle box and Chanel Démaquillant Yeux Intense gentle biphase eye make-up remover in its box.

On a shelf by the mirror there are other two Chanel products. One is Chanel Pour Monsieur eau de toilette, created by Henri Robert and launched in 1955; the other is Hydra Beauty camellia night mask.

Basic Instinct (1992)

Nick (Michael Douglas) is spending the night at Catherine’s so, when he goes into her huge bathroom, we know some intriguing products will be featured.

The first beauty product I’ve noticed is a spray can of Evian mineral water.

The tall pump bottle is by Alba Botanica. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any picture of it online, so I have no idea what product it was. Probably a body lotion or a face cleanser.

Next there’s a Clinique anti-perspirant roll-on deodorant.

This is a real treat: we get to see the fragrance used by Catherine! It’s Montana Parfum de Peau in the beautiful spiral bottle (a stunning design by Serge Mansau). This leather fragrance, created by Jean Guichard, was launched in 1986 and it still is one of the most aenigmatic scents of that decade; that is why I think it beautifully compliments the protagonist’s mysterious and wild personality. 

The container on the far right is still a mystery: when I first saw it, I was sure it was part of the Parfum de Peau line (a body lotion or talcum powder), but it’s not. If you have any idea about its identity, please drop me a line.

Windfall (2022)

There’s a lovely selection of Chanel perfumes, skincare and make-up on the Wife’s dressing table.

First on the left, an elegant jar of frosted glass with glossy black and gold cap containing the No. 5 body lotion.

Next, No. 5 eau de toilette in the tall bottle with black stopper. Not sure if this is a vintage splash bottle, the modern spray bottle or the spray refill for the atomiser.

There’s also a bottle of Hydra Beauty lotion.

The only item of make-up is Les Beiges Teint Belle Mine Naturelle healthy-glow foundation.

Last on the far right, a classic spray bottle of No. 5 eau de parfum.

Thanks to Jessica for first posting this on her Instagram account and for allowing me to share it.

Marry Me (2022)

Colin (John Bradley) is sitting backstage while Kat is performing live. There are some interesting products on the dressing table in front of him.

The tall bottle with gold stopper is from the Global Therapy line by Franck Provost.

The aqua pump bottle next to it is Styling 3 wet-look gel by Franck Provost.

The elegant white jar contains Tatcha The Silk Cream.

Last, the black jar is another Franck Provost product – the Styling 2 modeling wax.

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.
