Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day: Lipstick Flowers

Submitted by Allee Willis March 24th, 2009

I’ve seen many a kitsch lipstick holder but this plunges the category to a whole new high. I’ve scoured the magnificently cheap plastic pot for a manufacturer’s name or date but no such luck. I’m guessing this was grown somewhere between the late 60’s and mid 80’s judging from the Nude Pink meets Fireball Red with a twist of Foxy Brown inspired shades. The plastic flowers may be drooping but the lipsticks, which snap onto the ends of the stems, are as firm as the day they first bloomed.

    I think I know these…these look like Yardley Slickers…”slickers over…slickers under…slickers alone” from about 1968. I got a set that were part of a Carnaby Street bus for Christmas and I think I remember these at Longs Drugs.
