During the war, the American military forces commissioned the first “Victory Red” lipstick to women in uniform. The clear, strong tone looked vibrant when worn with the standard-issue, olive-drab jacket and skirt. The caps worn by women in the armed forces often featured a brilliant red braid trim detail, and “Victory Red” also accentuated this band. A color meant to inspire positivity and hope with the line, “Beauty as Duty”. The name of this shade references the Allied Victory in World War II. We painstakingly researched this red, based upon our collection of historical samples and lots of study. Our “Victory Red” is an absolutely faithful color-match to the original from 1941 and we hope it inspires positivity and strength in you when you wear it.
