Here's Carole Lombard, "Paramount star," as part of a display board for Max Factor lipstick. But in the 1930s, stars' agents didn't make deals to advertise products -- stars' studios did. This was evident in a contract Lombard signed with Factor on July 13, 1932:

As you can see, Paramount was clearly in control of the process; Carole simply signed the one-year ad deal engineered by the studio. A page from January 24, 1975, confirms its veracity:

eBay promoted this item slightly more than a year ago (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/896050.html), and the asking price was $2,800, the same sum it's being offered for now (or you can make an offer). Moreover, it has a certificate of authenticity.
