Printed in 2012, this book is already behind the times. It reminded me a little of the advice the girls at my boarding school were given in our final year of school (and I'm 62😂). Nothing wrong but, sadly, nothing new. For the price, what can I say? It's a dud.
Quite a good read - but I was disappointed to not get anything that I haven't read in magazines. I'd have been a happy reader had the book been priced at, say, under $5, but for the price paid I expected a lot more.
You'd get the same advice from a magazine (indeed, it is written in magazine style - hot tips! and use this product!) the only difference and perhaps its strength is that its compiled and organised into a book so you don't have to waste years subscribing and reading vogue, glamour etc. Nice illustrations, but could do with a bit more diversity - it's primarily written for BLONDES. Brunettes, ethnics, red heads, african americans, Asians, curly haired people, non-New Yorkers etc need not apply! I returned it for that reason, because her product recommendations to achieve each effect were basically for her skin tone / hair type weren't relevant to me at all. Still, she DID disclose that it was primarily to get a look *like hers* and I did learn a thing or two, So it got a 3 instead of a 2.
