A while back I shared my excitement about having met Paula Begoun. Well, it gets better.
I now have in my possession, her must-have beauty book, ‘Don’t go to the cosmetics counter without me.’ Today we’re loving the honesty from the ‘Cosmetics Cop’, Paula Begoun, in the 9th edition of her book, Don’t Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me.
Over 3 million copies of this book have been sold to date, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
As I explained before, Paula found herself irritated with the lack of effective cosmetics and skin care products. As a result, she has made it her life’s mission to expose the lies behind beauty brands and their advertising by researching every ingredient. Why? To help girls like us find our perfect product match.
This book reviews and explains pretty much every beauty product (skincare and make-up) available in the States. Products are listed by brand and type, and then compared to each other in a ‘best, good, average and poor’ scale, helping you make a better-informed decision when splashing your hard earned cash at the cosmetics counter.
Sadly no SA-based brands feature in the book, but if you’re keen on finding-out how international brands stand-up against each other, you need this book in your life.
You can buy it online on Paula’s SA site for R295 here.
