No, it's not real... although we love the fact that concerned mothers ask this question. Even after knowing this, they touch it and immediately look at their finger tips to see if any has rubbed off. One of our goals was to make Mini-Play Makeup® look and feel real. We get this question so often that we consider it an indicator of success. Rest assured it's 100% fake, making it 100% Mess-Free Makeup!
Because we have a patent pending, we can't answer that directly. However, many of our customers figure it out when they take a close look because we often use common materials that you probably have in your home right now. All materials are hypoallergenic. Please read our blog post about our kids fake-makeup for a further explanation.
Yes we do. Between the ages 3 to 9 are the optimal age for Little Girls playing with Mini-Play Makeup. As long as your child is still pretending, she will love to pretend with our makeup. We do not recommend younger than 3 years because there are small parts and you run the risk of a choking hazard.
Mini-Play Makeup is assembled in the United States. We would prefer that all of our components come from the US as well, but we have not been able to find a supplier for all of the components within the US. As such some of our components come from other countries, including China. We regularly test our products, and components of our products, to ensure compliance with current consumer product regulations. Your child will love playing with our pretend makeup, makeup kits, makeup cases, and all the makeup accessories they'll ever need!
You are not the first person to think that your daughter will be disappointed if she doesn't see rosy pink on her cheeks. Our play makeup can be compared to pretend food. We offer pretend food to our children and they play for hours imagining themselves making gourmet magic in the kitchen and yet they can't eat it. Although there is obviously time for your daughter to help with real food preparation such as making cookies, it's not something you would probably feel comfortable leaving her on her own to do without supervision. Mini-Play Makeup has the same philosophy when it comes to children's makeup. There is a time for real makeup-something that will actually show up on skin, but when you don't want to have to supervise or worry about furniture, carpets or clothing getting destroyed while she's playing, Mini-Play Makeup is the perfect solution. It will not transfer to skin at all, but provides hours of realistic play. We provide the most realistic fake makeup on the market and while other makeup is marketed as "fake" it's actually real (transfers to the skin). Our makeup is 100% fake (no transfer to the skin), but looks and feels real to the touch.
