Let me be honest - I was hesitant when I first opened the pretty pink bag from Little Cosmetics. My mind was racing, "make up + little hands = big mess". The four year old was giddy - I was preparing myself for a make up monstrosity. I opened the blush container and brushed my finger inside, looked at my finger and there was nothing. I pushed harder on the pink blush - still nothing. I pushed my fingernail in the blush and it made a dent in the foam. FOAM! Then I remembered - this isn't 'real' makeup - it's pretend make up! And with that realization I let the four year old dump the bag and explore the containers and brushes to her heart's content.
Little Cosmetics is pretend make up that looks and feels real. There's no powder, no gel, no goop - no mess!

But the question is.... who are you kidding, right? What kid wants to play with something that's not 'real'? Well, let me tell you - my four year old LOVES it. That's the beauty of imagination. She gets to pretend she's doing big girl stuff, and I don't have any mess to clean up when she's done. After doing her own make up, dolly and Daddy got make overs, too. I fear for little brother when he wakes up from his nap because I'm pretty sure that beautician big sister thinks he's due for a makeover, too... ;). When the time came for me to put on my daily face my daughter was right at my side using her very own beauty supplies from Little Cosmetics.
