Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feel like it quickly went out of date. There are better tips online and reading this often felt similar to reading one of Sephora's old sale catalogues (which were great fun when they showcased new brands), but the beauty and skincare industry moves at such a blistering pace that I don't even want to read anything that hasn't been published in the past year or so. New and better products and tips and tricks come out so often, and fashions change every season... this book doesn't keep up, obviously. You're better off with a google search for your questions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great For the Beginner I came across this book when our receiver first opened the box. It caught my eye because I shop at Sephora, curious I looked at it. This book is great for the beginner or one who has no experience. It offers basic tips and tricks and how-to’s however if you are looking for a more in depth tutorial this may not be the book for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh. I picked this up, expecting it to be full of great tips and tricks. It took no time at all to flip through it and realize that it really is a big plug for Sephora's biggest brands. It had a few tips, but for the most part, it was product descriptions taken from the website, and looked more like one of their catalogs than an actual make up tip book. There are better ones out there.
