Welcome to Me (2014)

welcometome_bornunicornThe dressing table at the tv studio where Alice Klieg (Kristen Wiig) has her Welcome to Me show is pretty busy.

freshsugarberry_bornunicornStarting from the left, we can see a tube of Fresh Sugar tinted lip treatment in Berry. This is the product that the make-up artist actually applies on Alice’s lips.

lorealcolorrichelipstick_bornunicornA gold tube of L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick. Judging from the shade sticker on the bottom of the tube, it should be a dark colour.

lorealglamshine_bornunicornThere’s also an open tube of L’Oreal Glam Shine lip gloss, in a nude/beige shade.

In the back row, there’s a tube of L’Oreal Original Voluminous mascara.

The blue bottle with the white cap is another product by L’Oreal, Clean Artiste, an eye make-up remover.

The white bottle next to it is Tatcha pure one-step camellia cleansing oil.

Last but not least, there’s a pot with incorporated brush of L’Oreal True Match Naturale all-over mineral glow.

Thanks to Emily in the comments for the Tatcha id.

ABBA’s Dressing Room

abba_dressingroom_bornunicorn (1)A couple of weeks ago, my friend Raffaella went to Stockholm, where she visited ABBA The Museum. She sent me some awesome pictures of the band’s dressing tables, so let’s see what’s on them.

CacharelAnaisAnais_bornunicornOn the left, next to the metal suitcase, there’s a box of Cacharel Anaïs Anaïs, the ultra-feminine and romantic perfume created in 1978 by Roger Pellegrino, Robert Gonnon, Paul Leger and Raymond Chaillan. The yellow bottle next to it is probably a shampoo or a shower gel; the brand is LdB (Lait de Beauté), a very famous Swedish brand established in 1948.

elnetthairspray_vintage_bornunicornThere’s also the unmistakable golden can of L’Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray.

diorspraybottle_bornunicornNext to the hairspray, there’s the spray bottle of a Dior scent. The front label is not visible, so it’s impossible to tell exactly what perfume it is. It could be the Miss Dior cologne, the Eau Fraiche, Miss Dior eau de toilette, Diorissimo eau de toilette, or another Dior perfume who had the same bottle.

oilofolayvintage_bornunicornJust behind the glass, there’s a bottle of Oil of Olay moisturizing fluid.

angie-everhart-rive-gauche-yves-saint-laurent_bornunicornThere’s the beautiful royal blue, black and silver metal bottle of Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, too. Created by Michael Hy and launched in 1971, it’s a floral aldehyde scent.

givenchyiii_bornunicornOn the far right there’s a bottle of Givenchy III, created by Pierre Dinand and launched in 1970 to celebrate the opening of the Givenchy store on 3 Avenue George V in Paris.

l'orealvintagelipstick_bornunicornIn the front row there are make-up products, among which a box of Kryolan false eyelashes and a Color Riche lipstick by L’Oreal. I’m not sure about this last id, though. L’Oreal lipsticks used to have a dark (aubergine?) case in the 1980s; ABBA’s last album, The Visitors, was released in 1981: had L’Oreal introduced the gold-case lipsticks yet?

vintageniveacreme_bornunicornninaricci_lairdutempsfluted_bornunicornOn another table we can see a tin box of Nivea Creme. Next to it, an amphora-shaped bottle with gold cap: this is Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps. Despite being famous for its twin-dove fluted bottle, the perfume (eau de toilette version) was sold in this more basic bottle in the 1970s and 1980s.

rochasmadamerochasspray_bornunicornThere’s also a spray bottle of Rochas Madame Rochas, a Guy Robert creation launched in 1960.

elizabetharden_vintagecompact_bornunicornThe black compact in the centre front row is an eyeshadow palette by Elizabeth Arden. There’s another black compact on the right: I think it’s by Yves Saint Laurent (see the red and black logo with gold lettering), but I personally have no memory of black make-up cases, only gold ones.
