A Letter to the First Beauty Products I Ever Loved

Emily Algar


I think my love affair with beauty products started in the pages of (the now defunct) Barbie Magazine. My 10-year-old self would pour over each and every product in the hopes that I could save enough pocket money to buy them. There were glitter rollerballs and shiny lipglosses, body sprays and shimmer creams—I was obsessed with them all. Fast forward 15 years and I write about beauty products for a living—how fitting. 

Seeing as February is the month of love, I thought it fun to take a trip down memory lane and pay tribute to all of the beauty products I first fell for, hard. Of course, there were Lip Smackers, celebrity fragrances, and a whole lot of glitter (I was a child of the '90s, FYI). 

Keep reading for all of the nostalgia.
