Thus began my search for a play makeup set.
Toys R Us has a Disney Princess makeup kit that looked promising, but after further research I found out that it was REAL nail polish (quite flimsy according to one review) and pasty lipstick; so... no thanks.
Toys R Us also had some vanities... but that's not what I really wanted.
I was oh so tempted by this Mini-Play Makeup set... but $34 it a tad pricey in my opinion.
I HAVE purchased a $12 plastic vanity set from Target but it's not exactly what I was looking for. It also has a (plastic) hair dryer, straightener, and some clips. Also, I don't like giving my kids toys and presents for no reason because then they'll want everything NOW... so I am holding onto it until Christmas (if ever).
So in the meantime, I have decided to make her her own make-up set. Searching through my makeup box I found a shattered blush compact from a drug store, so I emptied the contents in the trash and wiped it out. Then I used a pinkish nail polish and brushed the inside of the compact. Voila.... pinkish blush.
Add in some
Here was this morning at the big reveal:
|Trying the blush|
Next I am going to give this eye shadow that I saw this morning a shot from Parenthacks.com and from Smashed Peas and Carrots AND at Polka Dot Daisy (clearly I was not the first to come up with using nailpolish as fake makeup, lol).
I'll let you know what else I find!
