It's hard to get anyone excited about going back to school at the end of a three-month vacation filled with beach days, sleeping in until 10, and procrastinating any and all summer reading assignments. Even if you're long past that feeling of first-day-of-school jitters, you have to feel for the students and teachers who are about to have a very rude awakening come September 1. (But then again, a three-month vacay does sound pretty dreamy to us 9-5ers right about now...)
One way we all can get in the spirit of back-to-school is to do some seasonal shopping. Whether you're buying a pencil-shaped makeup case that will make your 7th-grade niece the envy of every other 13-year-old in class, or you're into the five-star-rated designer eyeliner that's vaguely reminiscent of a sparkly gel pen — we've rounded up all the cheeky beauty products that look just like our school supply lists, back in the good days when back-to-school was all naptime and coloring books.
