Truly a 5 STAR BOOK / Any lesser rating missed the point!

This book is right on target, with options for women with an average budget and unlimited ones as well. I don't know how someone could think otherwise unless they skipped half the pages! This book lists recommended brand names and prices, even the exact colors of inexpensive drug store cosmetics, and other beauty products 'hair and skin care' along with the high end department store brands. This book IS for virtually every woman - no, if your on food stamps, save your money, but this truly does not cater to the rich and famous - Why would they need this book anyway, they know the secrets! This is for us savvy women who 'get it' about style and want to keep up with all that is current without looking trendy, even those looking for affordable alternatives. This is not meant to appeal to the sad women who call themselves 'real' to compensate for their insecurities. This book deserves a FIVE star rating. I've checked out similar books but never bought them either because they weren't on target or because they were unrealistic. This book works for all women who understand and strive towards style and being their best, whether in casual situations or formal affairs - high maintenance or 'on the go' but w/style! It isn't about unlimited wealth, although many of the secrets of the 'rich and famous' are REVEALED, with great affordable alternatives for us! Also included are pros and cons of various treatments. This is not about the author's personal opinions, this is just SOUND ACCURATE advice on telling it the way it is. Great photos communicate the 'do's' and 'don'ts' of style. Even if most of this is common sense to your personal style and battle with aging, it's a great relief to read that you're on the right track, and I'm certain you'll STILL find some great worthwhile tips in the actual exact brand product recommendations in the back of each section, everything from lipstick, foundation and mascara to the right pantyhose or tights. At the cost of a few magazines, you can't go wrong! It's a reference book you'll refer to often if you want to be all you can be at any age! If you care about yourself, your appearance, wear any make-up at all, and love style, then buy this book, you'll be glad you did!

I bought this book after reading an article in the 1/08 Oprah magazine. Thought the article was great, with some good practical advice. Frankly, I didn't pick up much more from the book. I did try some of the recommended cosmetics, etc. and was disappointed. Seems they were more appropriate for someone of the author's light coloring. Also, a big pet peeve of mine and why I stopped subscribing to More magazine (where the author writes a fashion column): the book seems to be geared to women in their 40's and early 50's who are no bigger than a size 8, and who live in large metropolitan areas. Doesn't the fashion/beauty industry realize that there's a vast market of women who are 50+, 'normal' sized, living in towns and cities with populations under 1 million?

    How not to look like an old mother . . .

    This book had good advice, especially for the old mothers who don't want to look old and don't feel old. It had good advice, some I already knew, but it made me more motivated to follow it. Put this together with her latest book "How to Never Look Fat Again" and you have a good style library with some very useful advice. Give as a gift set to someone celebrating that awful birthday - as long as they have a sense of humor!

    I wish she would come out with a book just for petites!

    Great Information on Options for Looking Good at Any Age

    This book provides high, medium, and low maintenance options for addressing age spots, body flaws and various other areas. She covers things that do not work, work with limited success, and provides products that have been effective. Interesting reading, good points, and relevant.

    I Feel Better!

    My neighbor received this book as a gift. After I browsed it, I went out and bought it for myself. After reading through it, I bought it for two friends. If you are a "boomer" then this book has a lot of relevant information, particularly if you've become a "I don't really care" slacker. It doesn't cost any money to make some of the suggested changes (makeup, wardrobe). I love this book! Very timely, and it's one I will reference more than a few times over the next couple of years. If you think you look old, buy it.....
