Teenage skin is sensitive, irritable, and hormonal, but when I was a teenager, there wasn't much specialized makeup that addressed my problems. Thankfully, a number of cosmetics companies are now making special teen makeup lines designed especially for the next generation of beauty babes. Check out some of these gentle and sweet products from the new lines for the teen set.
TESS Take No Prisoners Peppermint Blemish Stick is way cool. TESS, which is an acronym for Teen Everyday Skincare System, is recommended especially for growing gals with oily problem skin. It's an extra-strength, deliciously crisp-smelling pimple elixir that helps stop oil production and fight off existing bacteria that causes blemishes. Buy it here for $16.
Sephora Piiink My Precious Palette is the ultimate teen beauty box! With colors named after bubble gum, cotton candy, and the like, this palette includes 12 eye shadows, two blushes, a bronzer, six lip glosses, a powder highlighter, a lip and cheek shimmer, black mascara, and various blushes and applicators. Buy it here for $25.
One more, so
Hard Candy Sweet Spot Lip Gloss is a super-sheer and light colored lip gloss with an awesomely addictive orange-blossom flavor. The packaging in itself is too cool for school: Each shade has a printed mod floral theme and has a name reminiscent of the 1960s. Buy it in six shades here for $11.
