London: Pop star Gwen Stefani`s obsession with make-up began when she was a 10-year-old girl and used to beg her friends to pinch their mother`s cosmetics so she could play around with her appearance.

The `Sweet Escape` singer, who launched her fashion line L.A.M.B in 2004, admitted that her fascination with beauty products is still the same, reported Contactmusic.

"I`ve always loved beauty. I was the girl who was like, `Ask your mom if we can play with clothes or makeup,` And you know what? I`m doing the same thing now that I was doing when I was 10," said Stefani.

The 40-year-old mother-of-two admitted she used to be more of a toyboy but even then she was fascinated with trying new brands of make-up.

"I know I`m vain. I have so much make-up - I`m not kidding. I`m the girl who would wear baggy jeans but didn`t forget to put on tons of makeup," she said.
