This book is an updated version of older theory. The theory has been revised and is now better in the sence that it is more flexible and nuanced. The pictures are somewhat more modern and the makeup is not hideous like before. The texts is precise and gives good insight to the theory. This book is what I expected and hoped I would get.

I have always disliked certain colours and the way they look on me. This book explains why and expands on the concept introduced in the earlier book by Carole Jackson. This book gives some ideas on styles so it is a good stand-alone or compliment to the earlier book.

I have followed (generally) the Color Me Beautiful concept since the early 80s, and have understood the expanded seasons concept, along with the "dominant" idea implemented by the more recent Colour Me Beautiful books. This book lost me. While I understand the need to include more examples of different skin tones, I think the basic concepts are getting muddled. For instance, there is no clear explanation of why they type Mel B as a warm, but Mary J. Blige as a Soft. It also feels like some types have been crammed together that shouldn't be. Carole Jackson talked about how her "olive" skintone (admittedly a hard tone to define) made her a winter that needed deeper or brighter blue-based shades, but in this book she, and a bunch of others, would be in the Deep 1 category, which doesn't include these cool tones. Those are saved for the Deep 3s, who have the deepest skintones. The only type that mentions grey hair is Cool 1, but that is reserved for grey haired women with blue eyes and pink skintones. Not exactly all-encompassing. I do think this book may be helpful for non-caucasian women, but I don't fit that category. The "capsule wardrobe" suggestions are helpful, but everything that isn't a color issue appears to be recycled. That is why I gave it 2 stars.

I usually like the Colour Me Beautiful books, but this was a huge disappointment. In a praiseworthy attempt to include women of darker ethnicities, there is far too little information on each category now. And the new classifications - 1, 2, 3 and so on - are hard to understand and apply to yourself. If they wanted to widen their customer base, why didn't the authors simply include more photos, make each section longer? Here, they've eliminated caucasian women entirely from some categories, which is very unhelpful. They could have had, say, six to eight pictures of each type, half caucasian and half other ethnicities. But instead, they just got rid of a lot of their previous caucasian examples so now if you're light skinned you don't really know what category suits you! You just have to be a "light"! How very silly!

The previous CMB books were much better. If you're caucasian, get one of those and forget about this one. And if you have a darker skin, there are much better and more comprehensive books out there for you than this sorry offering.
