Best in Beauty by Riku Campo

Oh, my God, what a huge waste of time!  In fact, this was such a waste of time that I couldn’t bear to waste it, even for the sake of others.  I got through the first chapter, but I felt myself getting dumber by the page, so I had to put it down.  This was one of an elite group of very vew books that I could not bring myself to finish, and that is really saying something, especially since I finished The Shopping Diet by Philip Bloch.

Anyway, this is supposed to be a book of beauty tips.  But all of the tips make no sense.  The recommendations for skin care have no basis in scientific fact about the physiology of skin.  It was basically like reading the sales literature from a cosmetics company.  The makeup tips are pretty useless, as there are no pictures to go along with the how-to’s.  The how-to’s are extremely vague, and the book only shows a picture of a complicated final look (although the pictures were really beautiful), with no clear steps as to how to get there.

Actually, this was so dumb that I don’t even want to waste any more of my time writing a longer review.  Unfortunately, I bought this book on my Nook.  Only the second time I have wished I could return a book from the NOOKShop.  Oh, well.  Lesson learned.
