"Are You A Good Witch or A Bad Witch?"

First, I just want to say thanks for the warm welcome you all gave Circle 7-2099! You have no idea how excited I am about this new blog and I SO appreciate each and every one of your comments. Thank you also for following the blog, you are awesome!

Ready for my first ad scan??? Okay, here we go!

During the 1930s, Pond's added a couple of new products to their line, one of which was Angel Face make-up. This ad is from the July 1955 issue of Ladies' Home Journal and in studying it I've come to two conclusions:

1. I must glamorize my tan


2. I must find out what vaporized beauty oils are ASAP.

This ad is zeroing in on two particular shades: one for the "Golden Angel" (i.e. - blondes) and one for the "Bronze Angel" (i.e. - brunettes). I can only hope that those fabulous souls blessed with pale pale pale skin (i.e. - ME) has a third shade option. But these two beauties seem happy with their choice of Angel Face and I can only sit in silent envy of those fabulous compacts. (Notice the price: $1 *gulp*) Not to mention Blondie's sunglasses! *drool*

**This is an ad from my personal collection, scanned in just for you! Feel free to snag this ad FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE ONLY! No big and bad terms of use and you don't have to link back to me just please do not sell this ad as part of a clip art CD or anything like that. I will send the Angels after you....and it will hurt. :D

For those that love wearing a vintage look, what foundation do you use?


  1. loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee this....and i am drooling over brunettes glasses!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. I love it! golden angel or bronze angel, ha!

  3. Great ad--I saw one that had a super tanned woman on jezebel and it was definitely a "i can haz skin cancer?!" moment. Ah for the days when we didn't know what would kill us. Smoking...the :D

  4. That ad is AMAZING.

    Thanks so much for scanning it I'm thinking of a project it would work great for right now.


  5. I always love these vintage ads! Have a great weekend honey! Kori xoxo

  6. What a great ad, i wish they still made ads like that now, i would buy even more than normal!

    I use a MAC foundation a shade just a tad lighter than my own, i would love to have pale skin like you!

    Great blog honey xx

  7. Fabulous ad Maggi and thank you for your generosity in sharing it with us. I'm a Bronze Golden Angel which is a blonde with dark roots...sigh!

    Love and hugs,


Thank you so much for visiting Circle 7-2099! I appreciate your comments!
