Being Pretty In Pink With The Revlon Legacy Collection

This weekend was a double score here for this vintage nerd. A beauty day at Ulta (HERE) and then a huge score. What did I score? You better believe it...I found every single shade of lipstick from the Revlon Legacy Collection at a local store! I could not believe my eyes when I saw them there in their special display box. It seems Revlon only sent this store two lipsticks of each shade. There were nine when I found them and four left when I was done shopping.

Gahhhhh! I am so happy! Why is this such a big deal for me? Well, I have always been a lipstick sort of person. I don't normally wear makeup everyday but the thing I do put on aside from moisturizer is lipstick. And then when I found out that Revlon was going to reissue shades from 70-60 years ago, well you know I really had to find them. And find them I did!

After I spoke to the Revlon customer service (HERE) they told me I would find them at my local Walgreens, Ulta, or CVS. Then in conversation my husband informs me that Walgreen's owns Duane Reede (my hubby is into business/finance topics) and I thought-why not try and look there?!

So I am saying now, try your local Duane Reede! You never know! I still cannot believe I have all five of the shades in my grasp. I love each of them but I love some more than others. To get in the spirit of spring, although it seems eons away, I wore this beauty of a dress from the 1940's. It is just perfect for that in between weather from March to April. I will be wearing it to an outing soon so you will be seeing more of it.

If you are looking for some shades here are some places on Ebay that I found sells them: One Last Touch, Lacquerista, and Premier_Finds. I hope those of you looking for these shades have found them and that you have been finding my posts about this special line helpful.

  1. I actually really like the Icy Violet on you! I think its my favourite (apart from the red, which is always a favourite).

  2. Snow peach! Looks fab on you. I think maybe Sandstorm and Jungle Peach are the two that stand out the least, but they're lovely too! Well done. We aren't getting them here in the UK, I feel a bit sad about that! P x

  3. How fun! I have not even begun looking but I have a cousin who works at Ulta! I'll have to use my connections.

  4. I love that you found them and made it a mission to do so! Congratulations, they all look so wonderful on you. You might think I would say Fifth Ave Red, but I'm kinda digging the Snow Peach. Do you have a favorite color? I like that you bought all five. If I find them, I think I'm going to do the same thing as mixing and matching is so much fun. Icy Violet looks also so lovely. Gosh, now I want to hop in my car and find them!

  5. Snow Peach takes my top vote, but - lucky you (there's no way they'd all work with my colouring) they really and truly do each look smashing on you, sweet dear.
