  1. It’s kind of weird but my Dad bought me my first beauty item, some lip gloss from Amway(they had a beauty line). You would think that my Mom would have bought me my first beauty product. And how strange that Amway had a beauty line.

    And yes, I was a huge fan of Loves as well. Sadly I also adored Exclamation and Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth. Stinky!!

  2. My first beauty products were the tiny lipstick samples the Avon lady would give my mom. My mom would give me the samples and would let me pick out something from the catalog for myself. I usually got the bubble bath. I loved it when the Avon lady came over and think that is where my love of makeup came from.

    1. LOVED those mini Avon lipsticks! Does anyone know if they still give them? Wouldn’t it be great if every brand gave them? Even if you had to pay a couple of bucks for them.

  3. It was definitely those Lip Smackers! I’ve have had some sort of lip product ever since I was little to help with my speech therapy (I was in speech therapy from 8 months to 8 years old.) You need moist lips for good speech!

  4. I forgot about Bonnie Bell.. I think mine was Sun-In. when I was about 10 years old I’m guessing. It worked for the summer time.. but NOT in the fall when all we had was chlorine pools to swim in.. you know what happens.. Green…not pretty blonde..LOL!

  5. Loves perfume!! Holy cow I totally forgot about that stuff!! Ha! And I remember stealing squirts of my sister’s Debbie Gibson Electric Youth perfume!

    I think my firsts were Bonne Bell and I was also really into the lip balms and this tangerine scented Eau de Toilette from The Body Shop.

  6. I think the first beauty item I ever owned was the St Ives Peach Wash in the big old jar! I was maybe 10 to 12 and had no reason to use it (ah youth – the days of pore-less, pimple-less, bright and clear skin) but had to have it! No wonder I still love and own oodles of face washes and exfoliators.

    And my Dad bought me my first make up @kellie76 – good old Avon. Two single eyeshadows in a duo of very 80’s, unflattering to me shades – bright, sparkly baby blue-ish turquoise and a neon golden yellow – shudder. Don’t blame Dad for the colors – I picked them from the catalog!
