"Walmart is introducing a new line of cosmetics, but this one is designed for girls 8- to 12-years-old. They might be on to something considering the tween makeup market rakes in more than $24 million per year. The top sellers are lip gloss, eye shadow and mascara."
I listened to the story but didn't really give it much thought.
Then on my drive to work my favorite radio morning show DJ's were also discussing it and it got me to thinking.
How young is to young?
I tried to recall how old I was when I first started wearing makeup...... but who am I kidding I hardly wear makeup now!
If I had a daughter I'm not sure I'd let her wear makeup at such an early age unless it was playing dress up. I mean 8 years old and full makeup? Let kids enjoy being kids.
Now lip gloss.... Yes thats ok but full makeup like eyeshadow and mascara? Probably not.
Whats your thoughts?
