OMG, I just purchased my BEAUTY BUYBLE and I love it. It has a section for women of color - ya hooooo! And all those fantastic products. Thank you so much for the recommendation, I purchased four. I hear they are selling out and will become a collector's series.

Ms. Divalicious, I have the book. I like the idea of the samples, but I really liked the concept of the book. The samples aren't really "necessary" for brown skin, but I love cute little beauty books and things like that. If you are looking for something targeting brown skinned beauties, I think Iman's Beauty of Color is better. I hope this answers your questions, if not email me.


Julia- have you actually checked out this book? A friend wanted to get it, but it was shrink wrapped. Okay I understand that re the samples, BUT is there any information relevant to the needs of us with brown skin??? I'd like to give her some feedback....


I also think this will make a great gift for birthdays or for pre-teens and teens to start them on a beauty routine.


I recieved mine today and much preferred the samples to that awful book, though I agree with Beauty Bug that the overall quality of the samples left much to be desired.

I ordered mine afer reading your post and while I was a bit disappointed with the samples (I was missing one, and was hoping for things other than the Banana Boat sun block and the CetaphiL), I think it's a really great idea and a fun holiday gift.


Sounds like a fun beauty read!


how cute!!


I've already ordered mine!
