Vintage Revlon Lipstick Colors Still Available Today

By RetroRuth

Affiliate Links So, if you saw my post about the four Vintage Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks being reissued, then this post should come as no surprise. I loved those vintage shades so much, I decided I am going to get the rest of Revlon’s vintage colors, which are part of their permanent line!  I have managed to get Blase Apricot and Persian Melon so far, but I still have a few I need to collect. I am very excited about Cherries In the Snow, I heard that it is beautiful! Certainly Red

    I’ve heard that Cherries in the Snow was Marilyn Monroe’s favorite color. Of course, I can’t prove that.

      Marilyn wore Max factor lipsticks. And Revlon Nailpolish Cherries a la mode and hot coral. They sold her cosmetic case for a lot of money. So this is true.

      I also am so disappointed about Revlon discontinued number 570 China Glaze. Please contact if you will be able to get some. Many Thanks Tempe

    If you ever need any colors you can’t get where you live, I can get them all here. Sometimes colors like Cherries in the Snow are sold out, but I have been able to catch it after a new shipment arrives. Let me know if you ever need me to pick up some for you.

    I should really try Cherries in the Snow one of these days – perhaps it might be a suitable replacement for my Raven Red! Revlon’s got quite a few original colours available in their nail polish line as well.

    I know the color “Stormy Pink” was released in at some point in the mid-late 50s. It’s a great color.

    My best friend and I were all about Revlon’s Silver City Pink in the 80’s. As I aged, my coloring changed and I now prefer reds with a blue undertone.. probably close to Cherries in the Snow, but darker.

    My grandmother would always tell me how she loved wearing Cherries in the Snow. Revlon had re-released some of these colors in the mid-2000’s. I picked up some of the lipstick and nail polish for her then and she was tickled pink. I have tried the lipstick and unfortunately it’s not a good color for me. However, the nail polish looks fabulous on.

    As a former TWA flight attendant, I remember being told by one of our more senior stews that back in the ’60s when she was hired, they were only allowed to wear one of these 2 lipstick colors (which had to match the nail color) – “Persian Melon” & “Fire & Ice”.

    I’m looking for sugar poppy and china glaze red colors in moon lustrous revlon lipstick. Anybody got some??
    They were popular shades that were mysteriously removed from the market and I miss them.

    Judy, you can try Buymebeauty.com for your lipsticks. I didn’t your colors when I just took a look but you could call them. Good luck. I found some favorites there.

    Cherries in the Snow! It was the only red lipstick I ever bought, a single tube. In the early 90’s, my early 20’s. I was not a lipstick person, but this color enchanted me. I wore it around the house, just because. I didn’t otherwise wear lipstick.

    The popular colors in high school we all wore and loved was Revlons Ice Collection. The prettiest color was a baby ice pink called Sugar and Ice and I remember a color called Mocha and Ice.i would love to see these huge popular colors come back and the whole Ice Collection which was beautiful.

    These are good places to find discontinued older Revlon.

    Street Fair Cosmetics (BEST!!)

    All Cosmetics Wholesale

    Beauty Discounts Online

    They are low priced, not some ridiculous inflated price.

    Revlon “Pink in the Afternoon” #415, I think, came out in the fifties. Occasionally you can still find it. I came across a tube and grabbed it.

    It’s creme and a great color. If you have warmer tones in your skin but love pink but have a tough time with the pinks that have more blue in them this works out great.

    I am fair with green eyes but have light warm tones.

    You can put it on quickly for a little dash of soft color if you are in a rush and don’t have time to do a full mouth.

    Love your website and look forward to contributing more about lipsticks.
