Toss the Gloss: Beauty Tips, Tricks & Truths for Women 50+

toss the glossAndrea Robinson is legendary in the fashion and beauty business.  In a career spanning over 40 years, she’s revolutionized the way women look and the way they feel about beauty.  From her early days as beauty editor of Vogue, and as fashion editor of Mademoiselle and creative director of Seventeen magazine – to more recently running the Ralph Lauren beauty brand and building the Tom Ford beauty business from scratch, Andrea has earned a reputation for always being the first.

And so it is with this book. The title got my attention, being a woman of a mature age, and being thoroughly confused by all the brand hype – how do you tell the difference from one manufacturer to another?  Andrea’s forthright analysis cut through the muck with absolute clarity and in a few sentences told me what I can buy that will work and not break the bank as cosmetics are not inexpensive. And what works for a girl of 20 or 30 will not work for a woman of 50-60 or older.

One reviewer said, “I absolutely loved this book! I am a budget-conscious beauty lover with a lot of allergies and a lot of other priorities other than spending a ton of money on the beauty industry’s ever-changing trends. Yes, I am under 40 but the tips, tricks, and explanations offered in the book are for the conscious spender who wants to look classic, timeless and do so with smart spending habits. The author is an industry insider who keeps things witty, fresh, and frank throughout the books pages.”

The book got 4 out of 5 stars from 160 reviews. A fun read that will have you redoing your cosmetic bag.
