The Tangee Tango (Vintage Lipstick Post)

In case you haven't already heard, Pantone has selected Tangerine Tango as the color of the year for fashion in 2012.

When I heard about it, I instantly thought of the old Tangee lipsticks. Not just because of the name. ...Well, Tangee's "Natural" shade was a very tangerine color, so I can't say for certain which came first, the shade, the tangerine-sounding name, or what. You can see the Tangee lipstick colors in this vintage 1940s Tangee die-cut counter-top store display sign -- with a pretty redhead pinup girl.
