“Full of beauty tips, tricks and artists’ secrets, in How to Look Expensive, veteran beauty editor Andrea Lustig helps real women determine exactly what they need to look and feel pretty powerful and make every beauty dollar they spend really count.”

3.0 out of 5 stars I got this on sale and it definitely isn't worth full wack yet
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on December 21, 2018
I purchased this based solely upon Lauren Messiah's (YouTube) recommendation. It arrived before it's due date in very good condition.
So far it clearly leans towards a specific viewpoint and line of advice - thin, blonde hair being a recurrent theme - but it has delivered some good points for consideration. There's a lot I already know, but like A guide to elegance by Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, it will probably need a few reads to adapt it to my needs.
Andrea Pomerantz Lustig has an easy writing style which is conversational in tone, so it's not a hard read.
