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!
