revlon_vintagenailpolish_bornunicornThe other make-up products on the counter are by Revlon but I couldn’t identify any of them. Some are original (see the Paint the Town Pink box) but the others seem generic items with the label Revlon on them. I couldn’t find any evidence that Revlon nail polish had ever had those bottles, for example, and the same can be said for the black and red compacts. This leaves me a bit perplexed. If Revlon allowed the production of the tv show to use its name, why didn’t they provide original vintage items?

Altman as sales assistant, Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) puts herself in the spotlight by recommending a lipstick to a customer. She actually mentions two shades, both by Revlon – Raven Red and Cherries in the Snow.

guerlainflaconsabeille_bornunicornWhile Mary (Erin Darke) and Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) are walking through the beauty department, some perfume bottles can be seen on the counter on the left: they’re Madame Rochas by Rochas (created by Guy Robert in 1960) and a flacon abeilles dorées by Guerlain.
