Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is full of great, clear, colorful pictures of real women. If you like books on style, this one is a fun, fast read. It uses the updated Color Me Beautiful system of Light, Clear, Deep, Soft, Warm, etc.
There are sections on hairstyles and color, accessories, clothing personality, and of course, color. The pages and pictures are of high quality. The pictures are of real women, over the age of 35, so it makes it a lot easier to visualize how a particular style would apply to oneself. This is the best Color Me Beautiful type book I own. (I buy just about every new book on color and style, too). I am definitely buying copies of this book for my mother and sister-in-laws when the holidays roll around!

Format: Paperback
I paid $22 and waited for two months for this book to be delivered, and I was so disappointed when I read it. First, the book is short on substance. In many instances, the author raises a subject and then tells the reader to consult a professional. If I wanted to consult a professional, I wouldn't have purchased the book. Second, the author discusses three characteristics of color, and then she separated what are two polarities of each characteristic and treats it as if it were unrelated to the polarities of the others characteristics. I had great trouble trying to decided whether I was a light or a soft, when I realized that, in a manner similar to color itself, my coloring can be characterized by depth, clarity AND undertone. My coloring is light, warm and soft, but the author does not help me with my colors because she assigns color on the basis of one characteristic only. Third, I purchased the book hoping to find more information on body shape, personal style and color. Didn't find that information in any great depth, either. The one section of the book that I found most helpful was that on appropriate hair styles for various face shapes. This is, in my estimation, the least helpful of the color and style books I have read.

Format: Paperback
Okay. This book is better than "Reinvent Yourself with Color Me Beautiful." But it's not as good as "Color Me Confident," which is not as good as "Color Me Beautiful's Looking Your Best."

The concept is good - many women don't think to wear lighter and softer colors when they get older; or take into consideration that ALL of us get thicker around the middle as our hormones change; or realize that grey hair can be wonderfully chic with a modern cut, but horribly aging if it's just hanging there, limp and style-free or, worse, up in a little old lady bun.

The follow-though isn't always up to par, though. Some things I find bothersome:

The author seems a little confused about what constitutes "bright" eyes and what constitutes "soft" eyes.

For instance, she uses the example of Barbra Streisand on page 11. Barbra is, and always has been, a "Soft." Her eyes used to be brightER, but compare her to a young Elizabeth Taylor (the most obvious "Clear" in history) and the eyes don't seem so bright. Plus, her skin is neutral (not porcelain as it would have to be for her to be a "Clear") and her hair has always had lots of natural highlights (a sure sign of a "Soft").

On page 46, she uses a lady with soft hazel eyes as an example of a "Clear." From a distance she looks okay. The aqua and Chinese blue look terrific with her fair skin. Then you look closer and her eyes look kind of overwhelmed. It looks to me like she dyed her hair too dark and they went into a trance and thought, "Contrast. Therefore she is a 'Clear'." But then check out her photo on page 98. She's in a clear warm red, which is too strong and too warm for her. So all you see is dyed hair and bags under her blue-lined soft eyes and a white line around her fuchsia-painted lips.
