Oct 03, Minna rated it liked it Shelves: I was hoping for more style secrets and made one of the classic blunders although, not as classic as A getting involved in land wars in Asia or B going against a Sicilian when DEATH is on the ecpensive Not Reading the Cover. That changed my initially disappointed viewpoint to a more-or-less satisfied one.
That being said, I felt a little let down at the lack of variety in recommendations. Lustig put what works for her, which may not work for someone with a different hair type or skin color.
She definitely lets her brand loyalty flags fly: I must be the only woman on the planet for whom the much-vaunted Nars Orgasm blush really does nothing.
And I definitely prefer my own brand of tinted moisturizer to the one she recommends. Otherwise it just seems like a long column full of Ms. View all 4 comments. Sep 29, Amber Lea rated it it was amazing. I bought this book knowing almost nothing about beauty and fashion, and I think I’m the intended audience. I already understood a lot of the concepts in this book, but I needed some very direct guidance such as “buy this type of product, because it does this, and that matters because of this” because I just had absolutely no idea what half of the stuff out there is for or why I should care about it.
It’s also seems like it would be a good book for someone who’s in the habit of living beyond the I bought this book knowing almost nothing about beauty and fashion, and I think I’m the intended audience. It’s also seems like it would be a good book for someone who’s in the habit of living beyond their means because there are a lot of tips on saving money if you’re a high roller. It’s a little less great if you’re looking to spend next to nothing.
But if you’re going into it with a moderate budget, it’s perfect. I got this book because I want to look presentable for job interviews and I spent my junior high and high school years with my face in books and being a nerd on the internet so I have no clue about things like hair styling and make up.
I knew the look I wanted to achieve, but I wasn’t quit clear on how to get there. So this book was perfect for my needs.
How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor’s Secrets to Getting Gorgeous without Breaking the Bank
I now know more than I ever wanted to know. Jul 06, Melody rated it it was ok. A few interesting tips but mostly what I should have expected from a Glamour columnist.
I keep thinking I should care more about how I look, and I buy clothes that look nice and makeup that looks nice and then I wear my yoga pants and barely bother to wash my face, let alone add a layer of anti-wrinkle cream, a layer of moisturizer, a layer of sunscreen, a layer of foundation, some eye cream, some powder. I lose interest before I even get the fancy facial cleanser put back in the shower caddy. T A few interesting tips but mostly what I should have expected from a Glamour columnist.
This book, for me, was not the triumph of hope over experience, but yet another exercise in over-reaching my natural inclination. Oct 27, Lucie rated it it was ok. A little disappointed that all the tips were basically for white women Sep 22, Lea rated it liked it Recommends it for: Barbie, YOLO-generation, people with too much time. I just suppose this is really not my genre.
How to Look Expensive Q & A with Andrea Pomerantz Lustig – A Girl’s Gotta Spa!®
I found this on my bookshelf, had bought it since it seduced me through pinterest. Alone based on the title I wish I could say, someone gave it to me as a gift. It just is as if this manual on beauty is for those who either now not to do with their time, or hoe have their priorities wrong.
Feb 05, Pinky rated it liked it Shelves: This is a nice idea for expenskve book and I really like Andrea Pomerantz Lustig. She’s very even in recommending beauty products and pomeeantz in a wide range of price points.
That being said, a lot of her product choices do not work for me. I totally agree with reviewer Minna about Nars Orgasm. There are now two women on earth for whom this product does nothing actually, it does something for me – it makes me look oddly goldish and cheap.
I have dark brown hair, brown eyes with grey rims and pale sk This is a nice idea for a book and I really like Andrea Pomerantz Lustig. I have dark brown hair, brown eyes with grey rims and pale skin with a blue undertone and live in the Midwest. Highlights are not going to happen in any way but frightening with my hair and tl brown ansrea and coral lipstick of any kind make me look washed out.
While many of the product recommendations won’t work for me, the advice to keep it simple is always good. And Lustih keeping a running list of new moisturizers and eye creams to try. Apr 15, Joanne rated it it was ok Shelves: Somehow I thought this was a fashion book didn’t pay attention to the subtitleso was startled to find it’s an entire book about hair, skin, and makeup. It reminds me that there are people actresses, celebrities whose full-time job is looking good.
The rest of us get by on what we have time and money for, plus whatever God gave us naturally. So the book was a useful reminder of my priorities. Or in this case, the lack of them. It is not that I don’t at all care, I just don’t care a Somehow I thought this was a fashion book didn’t pay attention to the subtitleso was startled to find it’s an entire book about hair, skin, and makeup.
It is not that I don’t at all care, I just don’t care as much as Lustig does. And given my non-beauty-centric profession, I don’t have to. Nov 18, Sara rated it it was ok Shelves: Anyone who’s read a year’s worth of Allure magazine or browsed the forums on makeupalley won’t find anything new here. It’s a solid guide to the uninitiated or otherwise uninterested who want to learn how to present themselves better, and it seemed well-researched, without any glaringly inaccurate missteps in terms of skincare science or current fashion.

Oct 10, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: Maybe she thought I needed the help? She tries too hard with the different types of women – while that might apply to hairstyles brows for glamour girl are not really different from upper east side.
There were some good product recommendations I guess and one cool mascara tip. Dec 27, Kate rated it it was amazing Shelves: Every young woman should read this book!
Andrea Pomerantz Lustig is a genius! She provides so many great tips and ways to spend money while maintaining what’s important. She keeps her advice loook, real, and most importantly, she focuses on self confidence and true care for your body rather than sending forth a materialistic message.
I highly recommend this book to any woman that cares about her well being and how she presents herself.

Feb 01, Kari rated it it was amazing Shelves: I think I liked this book so much because 1 I know nothing about beauty, and 2 philosophically, the author thinks a lot like me. The author’s commitment to understatement, priority of life over your beauty regimen, and love of white shirts resonates with me. Sep 16, Melissa rated it it was ok. I like the author’s column in “Glamour”, and I’d pkmerantz sticking to that versus this book of rehashed beauty tips.
I did learn one or two new tricks, but overall this just seems like a glorified beauty editorial.
It isn’t a bad read, but I wouldn’t spend money on it- maybe check it out from the library if you’re interested. Oct 30, Rachel rated it really liked it.
