After many years, I saw a My Little Pony at Walgreens yesterday and felt the same excitement that I’d felt as a young girl. The Ponies are just as unbearably cute as they were in the ’80′s, still fully equipped with combs (or sometimes even purses).
Although I don’t believe I currently own any Ponies, I decided to look into how much they might be worth. After a quick look at eBay, I realized that the highest priced pony (on which people had actually bid) was a rare Argentinian pony that costs $150. So they are not exactly valuable yet, but are still fun to look at!
Being on summer break is great, because after my Pony research I remembered that I definitely do have some Barbies, and then I found the Barbie Values Database. Finally, I had concrete answers to my valuation questions. These prices were somewhat disappointing as well, but I know that I have a vintage remake in a box somewhere…
I’ve never been too much of a makeup fanatic (contrary to a couple of my family members, for example), but the cat-eye trend from last summer revived my teenage instinct to look cooler and prettier than normal.
Estee Lauder is a quality brand that my mom exposed me to at a young age. Based on my prior experience with EL and the recommendation by Elle while the cat-eye trend soared, I bought the Pure Color – ‘Quick Thick’ Eyeliner. Previously I had been using the Stila Smudge Pot with a thin brush, which took some time and care, but was less scary to me than a regular liquid liner. I use the Estee Lauder marker almost every day now.
• Good product but takes a little longer to perfect your line. Also, be sure to close the lid tight when you’re done, or it will dry up!
• Fast application, easy to apply, smooth lines, and lasting.
