    Windsor in use for a Max Factor ad from 1965. The eccentric turn-of-the-century face is used for both the headline and most of the copy, including obliqued words for emphasis.

    Max Factor tuns on the DiscoTints
    (the new shimmer-and-shine colors
    shaking up the fashoon scene!)

    The mood: action

    The mouth: creamy tints of color
    tipped with frosting
    (It’s the yummiest look in years!)

    The hands: on show and glowing

    The colors: Cocoa Frost-shimmering
    new chocolate sweetened with pink,
    Tint of Pink-soft young pink
    lightly frosted with beige

    the look: lickety-slick and alive

    It’s the go-going glitter of
    the Now generation!
