  • I think at this age it's okay to play with it but it's not okay to wear it out, like you said. Make her wait until she's 12. Don't budge and don't feel bad about it.

  • I agree with laadeedah. I have a stepdaughter who is also 7 and when she's with us she wants makeup. We bought her the "kids" make up for her to play around with but it's in house only and if we are going anywhere she has to take it off. You can't even really tell that she has it on either because it is so light. But I agree with you on waiting.

  • playing at home -- awesome nornal.
    Wearing it to go out -- nope. And for me I think i'm holding out for 14/15 b/f I'll let her go out other than a VERY special occasion.
