While I may not be a 'tween (despite how I may act sometimes), I was instantly taken by the 'tween-targed brand AllyKats! This brand is a fresh concept for ladies who are just embarking into the world of beauty. When I first had the pleasure of checking out the line at Cosmoprof last year, I was super impressed. All of their products are non-toxic, sparkly and are definitely on-trend for the younger crowd. What I found especially refreshing is most everything in their collection is actually something I would wear too! So the lovely Colett (owner, president, brilliant mastermind) was nice enough to send me a few things which I have been rocking for a week. The absolute two standouts for me are their nail polishes which have just the right amount of sparkle, don't smell nasty and actually peel-off so you don't have to subject yourself to harsh nail polish removers. So, so, great! The Purr-Fect Pink is really sweet and perfect for summer (true light pink but with added sparkle). The other item in the line which I have proudly been using every day is their mini lipgloss in Pink Frosting. This not-too-sparkly pink lip gloss is not sticky at all, has no smell and gives lips a slightly pink sheen which is gorgeous. I love the mini tube (perfect for the pocket) and adore that it comes with a hanger (to connect to your cell) and a cute little kitten charm. It's such a great gloss and at a killer price (retails for $2.99) I would SO much rather have girls wear AllyKats than slathering those cheap, nasty products (think Wet and Wild) all over their faces. I can't wait to watch AllyKats blow up on the scene (which they will!). You can find online at Amazon.com or at boutiques in selected states.
Note: Samples of the above products were sent to me by AllyKats
