We are really enjoying this kit together. So far the girls have made quite a bit of cosmetics and since you can mix and match colors the possibilities are endless. There is a lot of prep and waiting time involved so I do think this is for older children for sure. Also the process does require adult help so be prepared to be involved too. This is the girls first attempt with any cosmetic kit so I have nothing to compare it to but this was a big success for them. I do want to stress though that the kit does not come with everything you need. You need to supply the coconut oil yourself so if you are gift giving I would include that so a trip to the store isn't necessary before the recipient is able to use your gift. Also the directions could be just slightly clearer as we looked for some time for an oven safe cup before seeing that actually one of our small glass bowls worked as pictured on the box, not the instructions. This is really the perfect gift for a young girl as it allows both creativity and actual usage of the results. All in all a good product.

my daughter is 7, and was a bit intrigued at getting the project mc2 crayong make up science kit to try out. however, i do have to say that, in my opinion, she is still a bit young for makeup. but for a one-time thing, we just forged ahead.

this kit included a crayon wheel with 6 colors, a lipstick mold (holds 3), 2 lipstick tubes, and a makeup compact. i think as far as accessories go to put your makeup in, that's sort of cool. now what you do need to get is coconut oil.

the colors included were purple dark pink, light pink, blue, green, and orange. i personally found the green to be kind of weird for a blush/lipstick kit. but that's just me.

we found that the instructions weren't very specific about the amount of crayon melts we're supposed to use. so we sort of guessed at that. and i was a bit nervous about my daughter handling the hot cup, so i did that part for her. as far as a child doing this whole project independently, i'd say they should be a little older, just for safety's sake (and less mess).

it was sort of trial and error with the color mixing. personally, i think it's better to just use plain colors as opposed to weird swirls, but maybe that's the fun of it? it got kind of messy mixing this stuff up in our own cups. i'd rather maybe some disposable cups were provided? or maybe i should have thought ahead and just used paper cups.

now as far as the actual makeup, once it's cooled and set, it's usable. but the stuff was hard to wash off. i didn't think it worked well as a blush, as it seemed to be more shiny (or maybe i should say greasy).

they should maybe include an extra lipstick tube to hold the third lipstick. one concern i had was that the kit is made in china. i'm not sure if that is a red flag or not, but there is some concern about toys and paint sometimes that come from china.

overall, i think this was an okay product, but i'd think it might be better for someone a little older, for safety reasons.

    My 6 year old daughter absolutely loves this mc2 crayon makeup science kit. We love that there are so many colors in the palates and that they are easy to make/use. My oldest created a beautiful palate to use on her little sister who also appeared to enjoy it. I would recommend this product to an older group of children just because I feel it would be a little easier for them to use versus the younger age group.

      My daughter(and her friends) LOVED this makeup kit! It includes a color wheel and they loved making the swirly lipstick. This does involve some adult supervision as there is hot wax involved. I have seen lots of these kind of to do kits or crafts before and when you open the box there is hardly anything in it. This is NOT the case with this game, everything except coconut oil is included and they are high quality products. I would definitely recommend this is you have a daughter age 6+. She will love it!

        My two daughters, 7 and 8, enjoyed this project very much but it may be better suited for kids a little bit older as you have to consider if you want them to use makeup or not (even for play). The science/STEM slant is great for them to witness and learn. One caveat is that my daughter has a tree nut allergy and this does use coconut oil so you need to be aware if your child has a coconut allergy or has peanut/tree nut allergies. It was a fun Saturday project and I would recommend it to others.

          If you've got a child that loves makeup, this is THE kit to get. Both my daughters, 7 and 11, loved creating their own makeup colors, and overall, it was pretty easy to do for all of us. There definitely needs to be parental supervision, as the "crayons" are melted in the oven, but it just turns it into a family activity that everyone can take part in. For us, my daughters picked the colors they wanted to use, mixed, poured, and put the "makeup" in the lipstick and compact cases after they cooled. I handled the oven and melting parts. Be aware it does require that something be mixed in with the "crayons" to give them the right makeup consistency. Coconut oil is recommended, and what we used, but I'm sure there are other types that could be substituted. If there are any drawbacks, it's the limited number of makeup items that can be created with the kit. My daughters are already clamoring to make more!

          This product looked like it would be a lot of fun but once I read the instructions I quickly changed my mind. You need to provide coconut oil and "bake" the wax. Instead of turning the oven on for 3 minutes I ended up just microwaving the wax and it seemed ok. The instructions said to melt the wax and then pour into the mold, I let it sit in the mold for about 2 hours and tried to get it out to put it in the lipstick tube and it started to break so I put it in the fridge overnight and tried in the morning and it worked fine. My daughter has a lot of the MC2 toys and this one was the worst. I would not recommend this product to others- but it might work better if the kids were around 10 or so.

          I've never tried any other products similar to this so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. My daughter thought it was interesting and enjoyed the process but we found it to be rather messy, no matter how careful you tried to be. We had to tweak some of the directions as leaving it in the fridge for 10 minutes wasn't long enough for the lip stick to set in the mold, every time we waited 10 minutes the lipstick broke when trying to remove the mold. Half an hour seemed to work best so if you're going to go for the lipstick mold and not the compact, leave it in your fridge for longer. I would recommend this for parents who have kids that are interested in making these types of products, but it wasn't much of a "science" type of product.

            Finding the coconut oil was not so easy in a small town, but finally came across it at tj maxx. My daughter thought it was very fun, she made three lipsticks and an eyeshadow, and she thought they were very pretty. It was a challenging activity for her but not overly hard.

              My seven year old was so excited about this product. She loves makeup and thought it was really cool that she could make her own. Unfortunately, she couldn't help do any of the steps. I had to complete them all. She couldn't do the melting part since it required an oven. She couldn't pour into molds because it was hot liquid. She couldn't take it out of the mold because that was a risk of ruining it and it was messy. The lipstick was difficult to remove and didn't come out very well. It's not pigmented and looks more like a sheer gloss when applied. I didn't like that kit didn't include everything. I had to purchase coconut oil. Luckily I had oven safe coffee cups already. This is no something I would buy again or recommend to anyone.
