Smell like Marie Osmond!

I have to admit that when I was a little girl, Marie Osmond was like some sort of magically beautiful fairy witch in my wee little mind. I was glued to the Donny & Marie show each week - like a faithful devotee. I didn't know why I was so mesmerized then - but now the secret has been revealed! It was obviously her beautiful skin, courtesy of K-Mart circa 1969!

Introducing Marie Cosmetics - I get a great look from my three-step skin-care plan... now you can, too! $7.88

Looks like Marie graciously bottled her scent as well, offering her own signature cologne for the unwashed masses. I wonder if it smelled like those daisies in the picture? I'm sure that' s all the "exclusive' K-Mart budget could allow... my little girl glamour fantasies are destroyed now.

PS - I always loved K-mart pricing. Everything ended in 88 cents. Even the hot dogs were 88¢.
