In 1981, after Elizabeth Taylor’s Broadway debut in the play, “The Little Foxes,” I went to a dinner party with Elizabeth Taylor’s hairdresser, Maury Hopson. When Elizabeth walked in she asked her makeup artist, Way Bandy, for a lipstick. Way didn’t bring his makeup bag to dinner, so brilliantly, he asked me for my lipstick. He presented that to Elizabeth.

I watched her reapply MY lipstick, looking into a small mirror from her purse, and then she closed the tube and popped it back into her purse! Stolen! 💄LOL!!!

Yves Saint Laurent #19 was the best fuchsia lip color from that era.

Shades of fuchsia were big in the late ’70’s and ’80’s. Here I am with my friend, hairdresser Harry King, wearing different shades of fuchsia in my clothes and my makeup.

  1. Everyone looking at Elizabeth, must have thought it was Way Bandy’s lipstick. No one but Maury Hopson and Way Bandy knew it was mine. To be fair to Elizabeth, she must of thought it was Way’s lipstick, he was giving her. No one told her “this is makeup artist Sandy Linter’s lipstick”. that wouldn’t have worked at all. I think Way Bandy handled this brilliantly. I only wish I could have photographed her (no cell phones at the time) applying the color and snapping the purse shut. I was opened- mouthed but tickled that she loved MY lip shade color!.
