Lots of good beauty tips.

Sit back, grab yourself a nice cup of green tea or a glass of wine and take in all of the inspiring stories as well as wonderful makeup tips.

The reason I am giving this book 1 star only is because the book simply won't download (so I returned it for a refund).

This book captures the essence of Bobbi Brown - classic style - truthful - great advice - well written - wonderful tips and suggestions that anyone can adapt to their current lifestyle. Bobbi is the most down to earth beaty mogul in the business. Her makeup, just like her sense of style and her attitude is for real people who lead busy lives. This book is great as it showcases women from all walks of life and all ethnicities. The advice and life stories that are featured in this book come from real women who have experienced much in their lives - You can learn a lot from reading their individual stories. I have been a Bobbi Brown fan since the beginning of her career - I have always been more than satisfied with her products and she remains true to her original theories on makeup and how to lead a full and satisfied life. I think anyone looking for inspiration and personal motivation about life, not just makeup would benefit from reading this book. It is a great reference book as well - you won't want to share this with anyone - unless you buy them their own copy. This is one of Bobbi's best books to date.

Sit back, grab yourself a nice cup of green tea or a glass of wine and take in all of the inspiring stories as well as wonderful makeup tips. You'll end up feeling refreshed and inspired at the same time and will wish Bobbi was your next door neighbor or your best friend -

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fashion, makeup, personal style/inspiration stories or living life to the fullest ...c'mon after reading this review, place your order now - you will not be disappointed ..................................btw - Amazon has the best price for this book as well - just my little tip ........Catch Bobbi on QVC - you'll love her .................

I was disappointed to find that quite a few of the women in the book were the same ones that were on Bobbi's Pretty Powerful page of her Web site. At least there every product used was specifically identified. Not so in the book -- there are no samples of the shades used on each model. Instead, we are given descriptions such as "I kept lips and cheeks soft with natural shades of pink."

I have all of Bobbi's previous books, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately, this one isn't up to par with the rest of her collection.

I love Bobbi Brown. I love her products. I have enjoyed her other books. I had high expectations for Pretty Powerful. But I was very disappointed. It is just a rehash of all her other books. There isn't much new in it. Maybe I just didn't get it, but I think the book is very bland and certainly wasn't what I expected.

Format: Hardcover
The back-cover blurb talks about 'step-by-step' makeup techniques, but there are *none* in this book (apart from one generic one at the start for beginner-level makeup artists/fans. It's far more accurate to say this is a nicely-produced photography book about Bobbi's lifestyle and the women she admires. Diverting and interesting for one read, but don't be misled into thinking it's a makeup manual. Unlike artists like the late Kevyn Aucoin for example;Making Faces, "Pretty Powerful" shows pretty much exactly the same makeup application on every woman in the book. Altogether now, 'concealer where needed, a pop of blush, a stroke of gel eyeliner.' Sorry, my peach lip gloss is coming off when I yawn.

I use to be a huge BB fan before her line was sold to EL even though her retail cosmetic products have gone down hill. IMO I still love her approach to beauty and empowerment of women confidence. This book however missed the mark. The instructions were minimum, the pics are just ok. Complete disappointment! There is a reason why people will continue to visit you tube, at least if your disappointed and the advice is subpar you didn't lose any money.

Okay book, bit less specific than maybe it could be, but then maybe being general makes it more applicable to wider audience. Nice writing style and glad I bought it but doubt I will use it a lot. Does cover basics well.

First, no new information in the book. The before photos were often better than the after. Many of the women looked like "The Joker" because of a weird thing with the lower part of their face. Was the photographer too low? He was def. focusing on the lower half of the face instead of the eyes.

Lots of great photos! But i expected more hands-on information, diagrams. I use Bobbi Brown products exclusively so wanted more "how to apply" techniques. Maybe I chose the wrong book.
