Style Lab

By Evette Garside @evette77

When I first agreed to review the "Style Lab" for Interplay UK, I actually had no idea what it was or what you could do with it. Obviously being from Interplay meant its for kids but I had not seen any photos or read any info until it arrived.

I was quite impressed with it and the amount of contents inside. The Style lab is for ages 8 and over and apologies to those in favour of the gender toy ban but this is without a doubt aimed at girls. It's all about colour and looking glam, hair colours, nail colour, files and glitter tattoos. None of which I can see older boys being interested in.

Jordan's has only just turned 8 this month and so is at the very young end of the age guide for this set. I would say that with supervision, younger children could use it too. Jordanna loves this sort of thing. She is always asking for things like make up and nail polish and she loves this set.

Inside the box are 50 stencils, cosmetic glitters, glue, brushes, hairlights, clips, gloves, nail varnishes, sprinkles and emery boards.

For the glitter tattoos there are 50 stencils to choose from. The tattoos are very easy to do as I found from having the first practice on Jordanna and her friend. Apply the stencil, apply glue, apply glitter and remove the stencil.

Jordanna and friend did go a little crazy with these tattoos and put them everywhere including one on her cheek which she had to instantly wash off due to school the next day. The glitter and glue wash or wipe off with a baby wipe very easily.

The nail varnishes are all solvent free and seem to be more water based as it washes off with water but still quite thick like a varnish would be. The instructions give a useful guide on kids nail art and there are nail sprinkles to add too.

Then finally the hairlights which come as circular coloured chalk which again wash out easily.

With these Jordanna can just choose a colour and rub it into her hair to add a bit of funkiness.

And no she has not brushed her hair on this. Nothing new there.

Full instructions come with this set and it costs just £19.99 which I would definitely pay if I was to purchase this as a present. Interplay also sell individual "hairlights" and "Glitter tattoo" sets which contain the same products (but more) which are in the Style Lab.
