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.
All Fired Up Nail Enamel, £6.29

ooh, lovely. I had a bit of a play matching my lips to my nails at the weekend….Revlon cherries in the snow, and I think I like it. I really like the Revlon polishes, and like you, i’m interested in their heritage too, they are the original purveyors of the broad selection of polishes after all…they might have an idea or two of what they’re doing! Thanks for letting me know…i’ll be keeping my eye out for it!
According to the quiz I’m made for fire and ice! I hope it’s more orangey than it looks in the new pictures, more like the older one!
It seems more authentic coming from Revlon than it would a newer company.
I’ll keep my eyes peeled for these. Thanks for the post 🙂
I was an avid user of Fire and Ice nail varnish and lipstick in the 80’s. It went really well with my bleached hair and doc martens!
wow the 1950s photo is so cool i love that look, jessica beal is gorgeous as always tho!!!!
