In the factory, we make cosmetics. In the drug store, we sell hope.”
Charles Revson, Founder of Revlon
In 1932, brothers Charles and Joseph Revson, along with chemist CR Lachman, would change the beauty industry forever. Revlon began with a single product: revolutionary nail enamel that came in colors other than red. Soon, the colorful, opaque shades were seen on women’s fingertips everywhere—including the cover of Vogue.
