The modern interpretation with Jessica Biel by Mario Testino

The original 1952 ad.

Fire & Ice Lipstick and Nail Enamel was first released by Revlon in 1952 but now it’s had a revamp with Jessica Biel reinterpreting the absolute glamour that this gorgeous duo must have represented back in the day in a photo by Mario Testino. I’m a real Revlon fan, as much for its heritage as anything else. If you search around, you’ll find on-line stores full of vintage Revlon ads and they sum up the period so beautifully being aspirational but also affordable. I love the full-on red colour (not sure I’m brave enough to wear the lipstick, but just try keeping me from the ‘enamel’!) and the entire vampish theme of the duo. I can’t decide if I like the original picture better than the modern one….what do you think?

The duo goes into Boots stores on 1st December for a limited period.
