I dunno if it’s much of a beauty confession but I like to watch vintage makeup commercials on youTube.
LIKE REALLY, really like to watch them. I find watching makeup commercials from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s absolutely fascinating. Now a I real confession would be that I also happen to like watching toy commercials from the 70’s and 80’s too. Like I’ll youTube up Jem doll commercials, the Mall Madness Game Board commercial, oh and I really love He-Man (I totally have a pristine Castle GraySkull on my bookshelf! That’s probably more a confession than anything else) and Thundercat commercials! Let’s also not forget that I really love the Korean Christmas KFC commercials and P.S. The Dream Phone Commercial is the awesome!
But this isn’t about action firgures or board games from the 90’s! This IS about Vintage Makeup commercials!
Here are some of my favs!
My absolutely favorite vintage makeup commercials are from Love Cosmetics. Ok, so maybe I don’t love them because they are about makeup but more because they feature songs from Donovan (who I ADORE)! But I digress, I also really feel like I missed the boat on Love Cosmetics the makeup collection looks like a totally awesome line of products. Are you old enough to remember them?
And of course, the Maybelline commercials from back in the day just rocked it! Like hello Lynda Carter aka Wonder Woman made Maybelline commercials! Drugstore makeup seems so much more interesting and appealing back in the day!
I just wanna say I can literally sit for hours and hours watching some of these commercials.
How about you?
Do you secretly serve up makeup commercials on youTube? Which are your favorites?
