Nothing new here,
This review is from: Allure: Confessions of a Beauty Editor (Hardcover)
In "Allure: Confessions of a Beauty Editor," Linda Wells, the editor of Allure, provided beauty tips for skincare, makeup, and hair. Not having read the reviews, I had intiailly thought it was a book about the life of an editor in a beauty magazine, sort of like the other "confessions of a..." books. I was quite disappointed with this book as Linda Wells offered nothing new here, especially for readers who read fashion and beauty magazines. There were a few useful tips here and there but as a whole, it wasn't anything you have not heard of. It definitely did not justify the retail price of $24.99. If you would like to purchase this book, I suggests that you get it from the library or at the very least browse through it from a bookstore to see if it would really be worth your money.
