    • 3 stars, I guess. I was hoping for more style secrets and made one of the classic blunders (although, not as classic as (A)getting involved in land wars in Asia or (B) going against a Sicilian when DEATH is on the line): Not Reading the Cover. It's really not fair to expect style secrets out of a book by a BEAUTY EDITOR. That changed my initially disappointed viewpoint to a more-or-less satisfied one.That being said, I felt a little let down at the lack of variety in recommendations. I think Ms. [...]


    • I bought this book knowing almost nothing about beauty and fashion, and I think I'm the intended audience. I already understood a lot of the concepts in this book, but I needed some very direct guidance (such as "buy this type of product, because it does this, and that matters because of this") because I just had absolutely no idea what half of the stuff out there is for or why I should care about it.It's also seems like it would be a good book for someone who's in the habit of living beyond the [...]


    • A few interesting tips but mostly what I should have expected from a Glamour columnist. I keep thinking I should care more about how I look, and I buy clothes that look nice and makeup that looks nice and then I wear my yoga pants and barely bother to wash my face, let alone add a layer of anti-wrinkle cream, a layer of moisturizer, a layer of sunscreen, a layer of foundation, some eye cream, some powder. I lose interest before I even get the fancy facial cleanser put back in the shower caddy. T [...]


    • When I first read "“Create your own brow board” I was like:.So I don’t know what I actually expectedI just suppose this is really not my genre. I found this on my bookshelf, had bought it since it seduced me through pinterest. Alone based on the title I wish I could say, someone gave it to me as a gift. It’s not thatbad though, and I suppose that if you aren’t really sure of what and who you are it is really good. It just is as if this manual on beauty is for those who either now not t [...]



    • This is a nice idea for a book and I really like Andrea Pomerantz Lustig. She's very even in recommending beauty products and services in a wide range of price points. That being said, a lot of her product choices do not work for me. I totally agree with reviewer Minna about Nars Orgasm. There are now two women on earth for whom this product does nothing (actually, it does something for me - it makes me look oddly goldish and cheap).I have dark brown hair, brown eyes with grey rims and pale skin [...]


    • Somehow I thought this was a fashion book (didn't pay attention to the subtitle), so was startled to find it's an entire book about hair, skin, and makeup. Uh, wow. It reminds me that there are people (actresses, celebrities) whose full-time job is looking good. The rest of us get by on what we have time and money for, plus whatever God gave us naturally. So the book was a useful reminder of my priorities. Or in this case, the lack of them. It is not that I don't at all care, I just don't care a [...]


    • Anyone who's read a year's worth of Allure magazine or browsed the forums on makeupalley won't find anything new here. It's a solid guide to the uninitiated or otherwise uninterested who want to learn how to present themselves better, and it seemed well-researched, without any glaringly inaccurate missteps in terms of skincare science or current fashion. That said, all the information in the book can be easily procured for free online from the myriad helpful resources on blogs, message boards, a [...]


    • This book was recommended to me by a fellow product/fashion junkie. Maybe she thought I needed the help? Anyway the content isn't revolutionary and it's yet another case of should've stayed a blog/magazine article. She tries too hard with the different types of women - while that might apply to hairstyles brows for glamour girl are not really different from upper east side. There were some good product recommendations I guess and one cool mascara tip. I felt like 99% of it I already practice/kno [...]


    • Every young woman should read this book! Andrea Pomerantz Lustig is a genius! She provides so many great tips and ways to spend money while maintaining what's important. She keeps her advice simple, real, and most importantly, she focuses on self confidence and true care for your body rather than sending forth a materialistic message.I highly recommend this book to any woman that cares about her well being and how she presents herself. I plan to give a copy to each of my younger cousins as they [...]


    • I think I liked this book so much because 1) I know nothing about beauty, and 2) philosophically, the author thinks a lot like me.Basic premise: you'll look your best when you enhance what you already are. Do this by keeping clean, healthy, and keeping your hair/makeup/clothes becoming.The author's commitment to understatement, priority of life over your beauty regimen, and love of white shirts resonates with me.


    • Meh. I like the author's column in "Glamour", and I'd recommend sticking to that versus this book of rehashed beauty tips. I did learn one or two new tricks, but overall this just seems like a glorified beauty editorial.It isn't a bad read, but I wouldn't spend money on it- maybe check it out from the library if you're interested.


    • This book should really be titles "How to look like a Celebrity." Nonetheless, there is some really good information in here about how to look like your best self. Not all of it is applicable to everyone, I think there are some good things to take away from it.




    • Hade lite hopp om att denna bok skulle hjälpa mig i att kanske ta bättre hand om mig själv, som en väldigt stor nybörjare nör det gäller smink, etc. Men även fast det fanns bra tips för folk som har en budget så är det inte för mig personligen möjligt att spendera så mycket tid på dessa saker när man inte ens orkar duscha vissa dagar.


    • I got some smart ideas, but all what’s inside this book is nothing more than we get from internet and magazines.


    • It's a magazine article extended to a book. There are a few good tips, but this was written for a much higher maintenance woman than I am.


    • Exactly as advertised. Practicable self-care advice. Long-term results prioritized. Easy read. I wish I'd read it as a teenager so I could've started my beauty habits off right!




    • How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor's Secrets to Getting Gorgeous without Breaking the Bank is an amazing, life changing book for people wanting to up their personal style, and look fashionably timeless.I came into this book already with a vast amount of knowledge, but I still recieved a plentiful amount of tips and tricks.Andrea Pomerantz Lustig writes out her tips simply, while making her tips interesting with little anecdotes and don't-dos.I love that fact that throughout the book, she str [...]


    • Orice fată sau femeie modernă își dorește să arate cât mai bine, râvnind uneori la ultima cremă antirid sau tunsoarea de milioane a unei starlete de la Hollywood. Dar cum nu toate avem acces la un cont bancar pe măsură, trebuie să ne mulțumim cu „scurtături” în ale frumuseții pe care ni le permite buzunarul.Acesta este și scopul cărții scrise de editorul rubricii de frumusețe al revistei Glamour, Andrea Pomerantz Lustig, supranumită și „investigatoarea de frumusețe [...]


    • This book (and my reading of it) is/was an exercise in subjectivity. I do my best to look decent with minimum effort, but I wanted to update my facial care routine post-baby (I would like to age with grace, and this requires some groundwork), and found this book.This is all the title promises to be: an extended beauty column, by nature ephemeral, filled with references to now-fashionable beauty products and now-recognised celebrities. Still, I found some of the recommendations worth trying and n [...]


    • Don't buy this. Don't. Just go to Pinterest, which is also in the Reference and Inspiration section. I cannot believe I paid $6 for a used copy of this junk. Every single topic that is discussed in here is on Pinterest. And better explained on Pinterest to boot!I have dark brown hair and this book tells me to bleach my hair (at least around my face) and to wear bronzer. "If your hair is raven, almost black: You can lighten it a shade or two to take the edge off" The option for a simple clear glo [...]


    • When beauty editor Andrea Pomerantz Lustig compiled her prodigious knowledge into How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor’s Secrets to Getting Gorgeous without Breaking the Bank, she aimed to give women tools to look their best no matter what their budgets. According to her definition, “looking expensive” just means looking like the best version of yourself, not trying to be someone you aren’t, which is a refreshing view.The book includes sections on hair, makeup, skin care, grooming, fas [...]


    • This is a book written by a beauty editor, about how celebrities look amazing. The entire book is an classified advertisement for the beauty industry, recommending hair stylists, makeup artists, and beauty products. The ""cheap DIY"" techniques are loaded with products to buy and unless you depend on your looks for survival (i.e you're a celebrity), you probably won't be bothered to go through all those time-consuming and complicated techniques. (I couldn't even read through the instructions wit [...]


    • Good but not great. I saw this book "advertised" on Pinterest and thought I may learn something new. Unfortunately I really did not. The only section I found moderately helpful was the one on the face care (I admit I need to get better at implementing and using products) which outlined what to look for as far as skin friendly ingredients. Otherwise I didn't really learn anything I didn't already know and was severely disappointed that there wasn't more discussion in the fashion section about bod [...]


    • Eh, just eh. A few useful tips are I try to become a little more polished for my job, but, seemed like a plug for a lot of different products. The format went like this: "These are the products I use, this is how much they cost, if you want to save a little money, here are some more recommendations." There were a few guides (like blow drying your hair, etc) that were useful since someone like me who needs all the help they can get can benefit from this type of tutorial, but other than that, I'm [...]


    • If you have never read a magazine or book about beauty before you might find this interesting. In my opinion there was nothing much new here in terms of the make-up & skin care sections. I much preferred Allure Confessions of a Beauty Editor. I was really annoyed that the first 65 pages of the book, which were about hair, basically boiled down to have straight hair (but not too straight) with a very complicated color job. I have no interest in straightening or coloring my hair, but there wer [...]
