Summary: I can't believe that I am having to say this, but this game is completely inappropriate for young girls (and boys). It's not because of the subject matter of the game. It is due to a rather disturbing conversation between two of the game characters. During one conversation, one asked the other "What's up, ho?" I know this because my five year old daughter brought her DS up to my wife yesterday and said, "What does 'ho' mean?" and showed her the game screen.
Summary: I bought this for my 6 year old. We both had a hard time figuring it out. It was very complicated. I also felt it was very difficult to get decent results. I felt like we had very little control on how to apply the makeup. The palette was also in the way when trying to apply some of the makeup. Perhaps I missed an important instruction that would have made this easier. But for now we have more fun going online to Disney.com and doing Miley Cyrus's makeup.
Summary: I bought this game for my 7 year old. She loves doing the make-up on Barbie.com so I was hoping she would like this game. She has not stopped playing it unless her 9 yr old sister demands a turn. They have had a ton of fun doing make up and face painting. I tried to do a Peacock on it for her. I struggled getting the details in but she didn't seem to mind. It was totally worth my money for the ages of my girls.
Summary: I bought this for my six year old daughter who had asked for it for Christmas. She has rated it 3 out of 5. When I asked her what she likes about it she said that it's good to make over the faces. What she doesn't think is so good is that there doesn't seem to be much more interaction than that. Compared to something like My Dream Wedding where you have to organise the wedding a certain way to gain more accessories etc it seems a little boring.
