I was attracted to this book mainly by the cover, the title and the chapters' titles. It seemed to be a good book to read. As soon as I read this book(even before I finished) I told every friend, relative, and neighbor that I had, 'you've got to read this book'! It's amazing, truely helpful and never boring! I've told my sisters, my mother even my boss and now I'm telling you, 'YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS BOOK'!

This is one of the greatest beauty and well-being books written by an African-American author. The writer's expertise in the area of beauty is also a great plus. When I walked into Barnes and Noble the book just jumped off of the shelf. It has a quirky little cover that all females, regardless of color, would enjoy. If I could I would purchase this book for every sistah girl in the world. But I could only afford 5 copies, so take my advice and buy the book! You will love it and if not you could always give it as a gift to someone who wants to appreciate the finer things in life.

This was a great read, I found it to be insightful, captivating and very informative. For the sisters who like to be 'in the know', this is the book for you. The author delivers quality and interesting advice, examples and suggestions that I personally found very helpful. Ms. Raines' 'in your face' style made all of the information this book had to offer equally enjoyable and believable! The timeless tips will serve you well for seasons to come!

Beautylicious is more than just a how-to fab guide... It is an undercover self-help text for when your feeling just a little too fat or your hair is just a bit off. With great illustrations and a darling cover, no one will ever think that YOU are learning to love yourself and all the great elements of being a Black Woman... Kudos to Rayne!
