Revlon – Why Work For Us?


"In the factory, we make cosmetics. In the drug store, we sell hope.”

CHARLES REVSON, FOUNDER OF REVLON

 1950s

From the glossy magazine pages of the 1950s sprung one of the most talked-about beauty campaigns of all time for Revlon’s Fire & Ice™ lipstick and nail enamel.

During a time when exotic foreign actresses, like Brigitte Bardot and Ingrid Bergman, were dominating popular culture, the Revlon campaign showed the American woman that she could be as compelling and glamorous in everyday life as any starlet on the silver screen. 


 1960s

In the 1960s Revlon flipped the conversation, bringing the “American Look” to the rest of the world through advertising featuring U.S. models.



 1970s

The 1970s ushered in a new wave of feminism. Revlon was there, mirroring women’s progress with the development of new products. The brand added face and eye makeup to its lines.

In 1973, the brand announced what would become the #1 fragrance in the world: Charlie™. Over 40 years later, the perfume’s youthful sophistication is still sought after by women of all ages.



 1980s

The 1980s marked a period of transition for the brand, leaving department stores to become one of the top mass-market beauty brands. At the same time, Revlon partnered with some of the world’s most “unforgettable women,” including Iman, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. 




 1990s

Revlon debuted its ColorStay™ collection in the 1990s. Featuring Brand Ambassador Halle Berry, the line soon became the #1 longwear brand—and has remained so ever since.




 2000s

The millennium brought a bold new influence to Revlon when world-renowned makeup artist Gucci Westman joined as Global Artist Director through April 2015, pushing the brand on the forefront of trend and fashion.

In 2011, talented and style savvy movie stars Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde joined the long list of inspiring, beautiful women who call themselves Revlon Brand Ambassadors.
