Reviews

Ruth P. Rubinstein, Ph.D. Author of "Dress Codes: Meanings and Messages in American Culture" There is more to "Color Stories" than makeup. There are stories about women's complex interactions with other women and surprising observations about how the top cosmetics companies market their products. Gavenas shows us that what a woman wants from make-up can't always be quantified. Paco Underhill Author of "Why We Buy: The Science of Shopping" Every cosmetic purchase involves a moment of reverie, where the woman is transformed from the person she is, to the person she'd like to be. This book is about the industry behind that moment. Welcome to the beauty business, more corrupted than Anna Nicole Smith, more jaded than Jacqueline Susann, and deliciously portrayed by Mary Lisa Gavenas.
