Maybelline get's a FACE LIFT to attract exploding youth market and stockholders rejoice.

As disappointed as Tom Lyle Williams and his devoted employees were that the Maybelline Company left Chicago and moved to Tennessee, Abe Plough had a method to his madness.  Plough production and distribution finally got the bugs worked out by 1969 and Maybelline went into full swing... Profits sky rocked and my family's stock doubled.

Great Lash was born in 1971

Blooming Colors introduced in 1972

And who better to take over the growing youth market's desire for more, more, more products and sparkling ads, but Chicago's original Maybelline Company Executive Mary Ann Anderson....Stay tuned as her story unfolds tomorrow.
