Choose Your Flavor in Lipstick (May, 1939)

Choose Your Flavor in Lipstick
Lipstick, like gum and soda pop, can now be obtained in a choice of flavors to suit the taste of the user. The stick-form lip rouge is made in a wide variety of fruit and beverage flavors, including peach, apricot, rye, champagne, banana, and pineapple. The three young women at the right are making a taste test of orange, wine, and pineapple lipstick.

    Rye flavored lipstick goes great with the pastrami mouthwash and mustard perfume.

    I believe they’re talking about rye whiskey. Even that seems weird.

    Ah, the thirties. Dozens of flavours but still only three or four colours.

    Yes I think rye whiskey flavor would be right. It goes great with the wine & champagne flavors! No thanks, somehow I don’t want hubby to kiss me & think I’d been drinking all day-
