A few years ago I came across these cute little compacts and they have been on my wish list ever since. They are called 'Honey-Buns', and were released from Revlon in the 1960's. As you can see on the top was a really groovy little graphic of a dolly bird with daisies in her hair, and the compact opened up like a purse. They were filled with Love-Pat makeup that came in different shades such as 'Misty Rose' with a pad for application and the compacts themselves were available in either blue, red or white. They were also quite large, measuring four inches in diameter, and thus I'm guessing they had a beautiful big mirror on the inside. And selling for only $3.00, as advertised in a 1964 issue of Seventeen Magazine, who could resist? I don't think that you could get a cuter compact - definitely something I'd love to carry around in my handbag with me everywhere.
