Valley of the Dolls (1967)

Recent graduate Anne Welles starts working at a theatrical agency but soon learns how cruel and ruthless the world of theatre is. She’s ready to quit but changes her mind after meeting her boss’s business partner, Lyon Burke (Paul Burke).

On their first meeting she drops her handbag on the floor and one of her make-up items is left on the office carpet.

Lyon picks it up: it’s a lipstick. Funny how he immediately checks the shade on the bottom of the tube.

The shade is Barely Pink, a real shade by Revlon! It was part of the Colors on the Naked Side 1963 collection, which included “barely-there pales with a ladylike lustre.”

If you are into nude pink shades or are a fan of the Mark Robson film, you’re lucky: Barely Pink is still produced by Revlon.
