Bon Bon Cosmetics filled Easter basket for my little diva!

Easter gives me a chance to put together small things that peek my children’s interest and add them to a colorful basket or tub. Then on the morning of, bask in the glow of my success as they all scream with excitement and give kiss and hugs all around. This is just another one of my favorite moments as a parent.

My seven year old, Aryka whom is really coming into her own as a young lady, has become quite the fashion and beauty lover. She selects her own clothes, accessories and shoes. To be honest, she is become somewhat picky, but seems to have a fond love for lip gloss and nail polish. So this year I turned to Bon Bon Cosmetics to help me create the ideal little diva Easter Basket.

Bon Bon products are very well priced at around $1-$2 each. So recreating a back like as seen below (made by me) would keep you around $25 budget. Keep in mind though with this many products, I expect my daughter to be covered until at least the end of summer.


One thing I learned in my college days is that a small Bon Bon nail polish can cover 40+ nails. This equals four complete nail makeovers or two nail and two pedi. Another neat-o trick with Bon Bon is the mix and match effect. They offer a wide variety of colors and styles. So grab a solid and start with one coat. Then take one of their glitter polishes and add as the second coat to get a flashy new style. Just by changing it up a bit you can create 100s of different looks with 20 bottles or less.

Bon Bonsbon stems from the French word meaning “good.”  Therefore, bon +  bon equals a doubly good treat!  Don Harkness has been in the business of cosmetic products for many years.  He founded Bari Cosmetics in 1981 with the Love My makeup brand and followed shortly after with Bon Bons, his second cosmetics company.  In 2000 he was quoted as saying, “If you’re not in teen, you’re not in the business.” (NACDS MOVES TO TEEN BEAT.
