Rock the Gloss Challenge for September 6th 2006: photo: gettyimages
Estee Lauder always wrote of always making a color do something. She usually added a verb to describe a color, or put it at some location where it assumed an activity----like "Cinema Pink". "Flirtation Pink" was a top Lauder seller----and a case in point of color in action,or getting some action. revlon was credited early on with not only giving color action, but powers that were deadly or godlike, that made everyone get out ofthe way while the color did its action. "Pink Lightning","Fatal Apple", "Paint the Town Pink", "Wheres the Fire?", and "Rosy Future", are among Revlon's greatest hits of lipstick names. Elizabeth Arden for years created every possible color of pink. Pink was her trademark, and by giving anything with a pink assocation, it suddenly became Ardenized. Chanel's Hydrabase lipstick ad reads "Treat your lips to the color nature did not dare to give them." Lipstick by Jessica Pallingston
