    A couple years ago, my mother bought one of these for my daughter at a yardsale for $1 (minus all the brushes and booklet). It was brand new. She plays with it and all her girlfriends are jealous. It's a VERY nice set for play, but I'm not sure I would want it as a serious makeup user.

    Buy the kit, keep the clutch and give the rest to a curly (hint, hint!). ;)

    i was a bit surprized at the number of companies that are offering clutch purses instead of makeup bags this year... it's a recurring theme!

    :D

    Rudee, i do have a Make Up For Ever coming up in my list - it's just not that one.
