revlontouchandglowmoisturizingpowderreviewandswatches3The compact Doris uses while putting on some black eye pencil is by Revlon again. It’s made of black plastic with square edges; originally used for the Love Pat pressed powder, it’s now used for the Touch and Glow moisturizing powder. Judging from the three gold lines on the eye pencil, I think it’s another Revlon product.

The Iron Lady (2011)

On the top shelf, next to the shave brush, there’s a Penhaligon’s bottle. It’s bow-less, so it’s hard to tell what perfume it is. Margaret Thatcher was said to wear Bluebell, but this isn’t it. That peculiar sticker shape makes me think of Blenheim Bouquet, but it’s just a guess. If that was the case, kudos to the prop master for choosing the fragrance created for Winston Churchill’s father and worn by the Prime Minister himself.
