Mattel claims that while she looks older (she is supposed to be about 10), she's not wearing any makeup. But doesn't it look like someone's been in the mascara and lip gloss?

I always thought it was pretty cool that Dora wasn't uber "girly." Now she's traded her sneaks in for ballet slippers and added more ribbons, flowers and jewelry. Do these help at all with exploring?
