The premise of this campaign is that you can buy different colors of makeup to make it possible to wear different colors well. Which mostly seems like a way to try to sell five times the amount of makeup.

DuBarry Royal Lipstick, 1958

Personally, I think the text here is WAAAYYY overselling it. 

"THE MISSING PINK"
DuBarry discovered it!

THE SHOCKINGLY-BEAUTIFUL WINTER PINK
YOU'VE SPENT A LIFETIME LOOKING FOR!

We found "The Missing Pink" -- and we brought it back alive!  It's  a delicious day-shade, a deadly night-shade -- the pink you could have worn (and would have worn) had someone only know it could exist!i  Never a pink so potent.  Never a shade so shatteringly chic.  Wear it with all the royal reds, the glacial greens, the bold new hues of Fall.  You can't know what you're missing, till you try "The Missing Pink" -- DuBarry's new Royal Lipstick, a fabulously rich formula that soothes and papers your lips!

How come perfume packaging isn't this pretty anymore? (Mods, would you like to add a pink tag?)
