Free Gift With Purchase - by Editor of Lucky Magazine

What a great read! I am always on the look out for great beauty books - I commute to New York for work, and constantly need to entertain myself while on the bus or I will go crazy.

This book is hysterical, honest and sarcastic - Jean Godfrey is the beauty industry's equivalent of Chelsea Handler...minus the vodka and being a bed-hopper. Godfrey is the Beauty Editor of Lucky Magazine, and shares her career journey in a self-deprecating and smart way. She calls bullshit on beauty myths, shares her experiences working for crazy people at Elle Magazine, and brings a real person aspect to a seemingly glamorous job.

A must read, if you are makeup obsessed like I am =)


  1. Oh this sounds interesting!! I need to check this out.

  2. I have that book !! And I've read it twice already. Always made me laugh

  3. Ooh this sounds really interesting! I know I'd probably not like an actual career in beauty and would rather keep it as a hobby, but I'm always curious to know what goes on behind the scenes...

  4. it's a great read! the author never imagined her career would be in beauty, such a funny book
