Selena: The Series S02E09 (When All the World is Sleeping)

In the show’s finale we are given a beautiful shot of Selena’s vanity. There are several MAC products and two surprising perfume bottles.

The small brush on the left side of the screen is MAC 182 buffer brush.

Then there are some lipsticks and compacts, which could be blushes or face powders.

The intriguing choices can be seen on the right side of the screen, where there are two Guerlain bottles.

One is the refillable metal canister, shown here without stopper.

The other is a small flacon montre with golden conical stopper. The front sticker is not shown, so there’s no way to know what eau de cologne this contains.

I’m quite surprised to see Guerlain perfumes on Selena’s vanity and not the one that was her trademark perfume in real life.

In this picture, taken at the Selena Museum in Corpus Christi, we can see Chanel make-up products (including the famous Brick lip colour, now discontinued) and brushes, and one perfume bottle – Boucheron Pour Femme, a white floral fragrance created by Francis Deleamont and Jean-Pierre Bethouart and launched in 1988.

Since this perfume is still on the market, I wonder why the show’s prop masters haven’t used it in this scene.

Selena: The Series S02E05 (Oh No)

Selena (Christian Serratos) has just arrived at her boutique to interview candidates for a sales assistant position. Yolanda (Natasha Perez) hands her a MAC lipstick.

When Selena applies it, we can see it’s a deep red shade, possibly Russian Red (intense bluish red), which she used in real life.

I May Destroy You S01E12 (Ego Death)

One of the first places we are introduced to in this show is Ego Death, a London bar with a prophetical name. It’s the place where the protagonist, Arabella, and her best friend Terry (Weruche Opia) often return to in an attempt to exorcise it as a negative symbol and find closure to the traumatic event the show opens with.

In this scene, Terry is retouching her make-up by applying a MAC lipstick in a nude shade.

Joker (2019)

macrubywoolipstick_bornunicornThere’s a MAC red lipstick in the dressing room where Arthur (Joaquin Phoenix) sits while waiting to perform at the Live! With Murray Franklin. I guess he used the same lipstick to write “Put on a happy face” on the mirror.

Seeing this lipstick here is not a surprise, because MAC was the brand of choice of the movie’s make-up artist, Nicki Ledermann, who used Chromacakes to create the protagonist’s clown looks.
