Red Alert.

British Vogue November 1925

You have been warned!

"There are no ugly women, only lazy ones," declared Helena Rubinstein, one of the great pioneers of the cosmetic
industry. Well, nothing requires more effort or precision than perfect red lips or fabulously manicured crimson talons. But then nothing has quite so great an effect on transforming the face and hands. Properly painted lips and nails, saturated with scarlet, speak volumes about the way  you regard yourself in terms of the outside world. They are nothing less than a red flag for impeccable glamour.

How maddening is it then, when your absolute favourite lipstick is brutally discontinued?
