What were five fabulous products (makeup, beauty, fragrance, fashion — you name it) when you were in high school?
OK, full disclosure — whenever I think of the actual year in which I graduated from high school (class of of ’93, yo!), I make a painful-looking smile with panicked eyes and just my lower teeth showing.
This emoji describes it perfectly: 😁.
Because when I do the math…OMG!
High school was a lot of fun for me. I was a happy teenager (despite the occasional bout of angst), and I loved exploring, in the only ways I knew how to at the time, things like makeup, beauty, fragrance and fashion.
My parents were strict in a lot of ways, like with grades and after-school activities (I wasn’t one of those kids going to ragers at so-and-so’s house on a Friday night), but I was given free reign to express myself, and I tried a lot of different things!
Or course, I loved the trendy stuff, and a lot of the things I experimented with were the same things my friends liked, too.
There was a lot going on at the time (the early ’90s) with beauty, makeup and fashion, like…
Revlon Toast of New York Lipstick
GURL, three fourths of the flute section in band wore this color, no joke. When band practice was over and all the flutes were put away, the girls would bust out their Cornsilk compacts, and touch up their lips with Revlon Toast of New York. A deep reddish brown, it would be very relevant today because of the current ’90s revival.
I actually just checked online, and Revlon still sells it! I might have to get a tube for nostalgia’s sake.
