Revlon to re-release discontinued lipstick shades dating back to the 1940’s

Calling all drugstore beauty junkies! For a limited time in Spring 2014 Revlon will be re-releasing favorite shades from Revlon’s lipstick past. The story is all too familiar – you finally find your favorite shade but eventually your shade gets discontinued. This typically hurts public opinion of cosmetic companies because it more or less forces you to start the hunt once more, but higher end cosmetic companies like MAC have had great success letting customers vote on their all-time favorite shades and re-releasing in minimum quantities. As far as drugstore brands go, Revlon is my favorite for lipstick so I can’t wait to get my hands on all 5 limited edition shades. Personally? I’m most excited for Fifth Avenue Red (1958) and Icy Violet (1946).

  1. Fifth Ave Red looks AMAZING for the holidays! I can only imagine the joy some people are feeling over this. There is nothing worse than finding THAT shade for yourself and then the worst…. Ok maybe slightly dramatic but you know
