Little Cosmetics review and giveaway

I was so excited to work with Little Cosmetics  for  a review. My girls are ALWAYS trying to use my makeup. I have to keep a sponge with no makeup on it just so they feel like the are putting on makeup in the morning. So when I saw this set I new it would be something they would like.

They have "pretend makeup" but it still can make a huge mess because it is real enough to leave some color. These look amazing real but are a Styrofoam type material so no mess.  I knew my girls would like it, I had no idea how much they would actually like it. I gave them the set yesterday to look at and they went crazy pulling things out and primping!

The kit comes with everything they need to do an entire face of "makeup": blush, powder, eyeshadow, lipgloss, and a bit of sparkle. Everything look so real, they don't know the difference. There is even a pack of real makeup brushes which is a great touch! There is a sponge applicator in the eyeshadow trio that is nicer than most of the ones I get in my  makeup.  I thought about switching with them but I didn't... for now.

One of my girls asked if it was "real" makeup so I told a little white lie: it is in fact real. My five year old kept asking because she said I don't see anything. Then my oldest  swore she saw the purple eyeshadow on her sister.  I told them makeup is not meant to be seen a lot just to enhance your features. I know maybe I shouldn't lie but they are so excited to have their own set of makeup they can play with without making a mess. Most of the other "pretend" sets have real makeup in it. It doesn't show a lot but it can still make a huge mess if they are not careful. 

For days  my three girls have been playing with their makeup hours at a time. I have not heard them except of course for the occasional give me that back. I guess my girls will be just like their mom and can play with makeup for hours at  time.

I can even played with them without fear of having makeup all over my face, so it is great to play beauty shop with as well. I would really recommend this as a present to a little girl in your life. My girls are 4, 5, and 6 and they are very cute playing with it. I can see I need to give my oldest tips, she is putting eyeshadow on her cheeks but that will all come in time.
