Anti-Aging for 8 Year Olds
Wal-Mart offers makeup and anti-aging products for 8-year-olds

Wal-Mart offers makeup and anti-aging products for 8-year-olds | Shop Girl | - Houston Chronicle


Wal-Mart is going after the tween (ages 8-12) market (and their parents' wallets) with the new GeoGirl beauty line. That 8-year-olds need lipstick is another debate, but this line will offer colorful cosmetics and "mother approved" makeup products.

I don't get it, when I was 42y/o, people thought I was 18y/o...and I never used any of the make-up stuffs; that's why they start to look aged in the first place, because they're not letting the skin breathe.

Exfoliation for skin at that age, geez...Why on earth would any parent fall for this tripe? :confused:

My daughters like the fake lip chap that smells like candy. It has no color, so we let them use it. And we let them play dress up and makeup from time to time.

But this is an entirely whole new, and bizarre level.
