Girls as Young as 7 Do WHAT?

Little girls are wearing makeup. We're not talking about playtime on a Saturday afternoon when they put on mother's way-too-big old dresses and high heels and then sneak into her bathroom and smear lipstick on their faces. We're talking about girls as young as 7 using lipstick and perfume almost every day.

In a survey of 5,856 British youths aged seven to 19 conducted by market research firm Mintel International, it was discovered that more than three in five girls ages 7 to 10 years old wear lipstick regularly and nearly as many use perfume, reports Reuters. "Long before girls become teenagers, they use a wide selection of cosmetics as well as other skincare products and toiletries," said Mintel analyst Claire Hatcher.

Who's to blame? Mintel thinks the children are mimicking movie and music stars, as well as their own mothers. "Their interest in these products is fueled by teen magazines and by swapping ideas and recommendations with their peer group and, of course, watching what their mothers use," Hatcher told Reuters. By the time they celebrate their 14th birthdays, fully 90 percent of girls are regularly using eye shadow, mascara, and lipstick. "Cosmetic manufacturers must be ever mindful of the fine line they tread between encouraging children to look and behave like adults and promoting their products as being good, clean fun," Hatcher said.


Um yah... 7? My sister's almost seven...

Does she pee in public?! XD

Children are dressing like their favorite celebrities, which is scary, especially because their parents let them. Soon they're going to be dressing like Britney or Christina....O_O

XD...I think Grand is referring to the classical, "Madonna and Britney Love Fest".

Still, I have to agree with sir, that just by reading what she said, I think she is scary as hell.... :blink:
