First Makeup Brand/Products I Used

I was recently looking through old photographs and couldn't help but laugh at myself and how funny I looked during my younger years, not necessarily my physical appearance, but how I dressed and applied makeup!! I've gone through a lot of different changes throughout the years, and I've experimented a lot with makeup and fashion! I guess I had an idea of what type of clothes looked cool, and what kind of makeup or hairstyles were "in" and even though my mother would tell me something looked ridiculous, I still went forward with it!

Thinking back, my addiction to drugstore beauty items started at a very young age, in fact a lot of makeup brands I use today are brands I actually used when I was younger! I never really wore makeup at a younger age, a lip-gloss here and there, a lot of nail polish, and a TON of sweet tasting chap-sticks is usually what I went for!
The very first makeup brands I remember using when I was younger were:

Wet n Wild
I loved their nail polishes, I remember buying a glitter polish and a clear one to top it off! And even though I always "went outside the lines" I had so much fun playing with WnW polishes! (Which by the way is still one of my favorite cosmetics brand!)
Bonne Bell
I probably can't count the number of Lip Smackers I had, I wanted all the flavors, and if  a new one came out I wanted to try it immediately! I remember going to the local drugstore (believe it was RiteAid) and running to the Bonne Bell section to see if a new Lip Smackers came out that I hadn't tried yet! It never went to waste, I would finish all the Lip Smackers, I carried one with me at all time! This is probably why  now days I feel "naked" without any lip products on!
I loved NYC's liquid lip shine, and although their old formula was super sticky I didn't care! Clear and Frosty Pink were my 2 color choices, I remember thinking I was so grown up when I started wearing looking back all I can do is laugh!
I asked a few of my favorite bloggers on twitter what was their 1st makeup brand/product they used and a lot of the same brands came up repeatedly.  I receive a lot of responses but below are just a few:

 the first makeup brand that i used was wet n wild. it was nail polish, lol. i think i was about 16...

 I'll never forget;) it was COVERGIRL Coffee Bean lipstick!!! 12 yrs old. xo 

 think it was Bonnie Bell at the age of 12! 

 1st makeup product would be Lip Smackers roller ball gloss. I stole it from my big sis & I broke it accidentally. Oops. 

 Covergirl Clean pressed powder! I can still smell it, lol!15yrs old ;) 

 I think it was Wet n Wild lipstick and I was like 13? Don't quote me on that. I remember my mom throwing it away lol 

 Covergirl powder compact in a color that was 3 shades dark. Lol 

 I was 13 Mom bought me my very own Covergirl palette! 4 shadows, blush & mascara!  

 tinkerbell perfume. my third grade boyfriend bought it for me..

This post really brought back a lot of wonderful memories of my childhood! Now I ask you, what was your first makeup brand/product that you remember using? Are you still using any of the brands to this day? I'd love to know!

  5. So funny we all had many of the same first brands! I think wet 'n wild and Bonne bell are the "gateway drugs" to makeup obsession lol! I had sooooo many lip smackers! But I was such a nerd I'd inventory them! Flavor, when I bought, how full it was, and stars to indicate how much I liked it hahaha
