80 Years of Revlon!



Revlon is 80 this year so Happy Birthday Revlon! Created in 1932 by Charles Revson and in the midst of the Great Depression, Charles and brother Joseph along with Charles Lachman (who contributed 'L' to the Revlon name) set up the company and swiftly became innovators in the field of cosmetics and beauty. At this time the only shades of nail enamel were clear and it was Charles Revson who added pigments to create coloured varnishes and by 1933 launched nail enamels to complement the seasonal trends - The Revlon Reds were born!

In 1939 the concept of matching 'lips and tips' was created which set the standard for Hollywood's most glamorous era and is still considered glamorous today. Revlon Red was the first colour and there have been so many since - amazingly the exact same colour is still in existance today and is still a popular seller. So when you paint your nails with Revlon Red you will still be using the same colour as our grandmothers and greatgrandmothers - there's something quite comforting about that!
