Don't let the cover or title fool you into thinking this is chick lit. Chick lit heroines may bewail calories but they rarely talk about the orgasmic properties of bulimia and they certainly don't self-mutilate. If you've read her memoir 'Your Voice In My Head', you will certainly wonder how much of Sadie's story is biographical but that doesn't matter when you write with such a clever, self-deprecating hand. And what Gen X girl hasn't wanted to be 'the person who makes up the names for ...more

I know, you might be asking yourself- You seem to hate Emma Forrest why do you read all her books? Well, it's because I like the premis of her, but her work is poorly executed. Her books all run together to me. I swore when she went to the plastic surgeon in L.A. I'd read that before and I can only guess that was in Name Dropper since I went though the books I've read in the past two years and hers is the only one that was a maybe. I'm appealed by how her characters act, and I can only assume ...more

Sadie has got to be the most annoying character i've ever read. All she did through out this book was whine about everything and anything! This woman is meant to be a successful 24 year old who moved to a different country all by herself to work for a successful make up company and you'd think she'd be mature and responsible but no. She's a whinging 6 year old and it was SO FUCKING ANNOYING TO READ. If this woman was a real person I would most likely dislike her a hell of a lot.

This should really be higher than a three but it isn't really worth the four stars as the main character ended up being too immature for enjoyment and the plot and it's pacing to be near non existent.

However the prose and writing of the book itself was FABULOUS. with so many amazing one line observations that I could relate to so much. And with brilliant use of makeup metaphors to bring it back to the plot of the book.

As much as it is a 'chick lit' book it really isn't at all, as it's a very s

This is hilarious more than tragic. I disagree with the cover AT ALL. And to think that what caught my attention with this book was because of Ethan Hawke's review: "Electric". But the story of womanhood is very well-written. Young 20's, unsure career, dating older men. Sounds typical, but I love the inner voice of this book.

It's been about a year since I read this book but it was hilarious! The main character is British and works creating titles for make-up colors. It is a little naughty, which is part of what makes it so hilarious. I will quote a friend of mine who was reading the book because I recommended it to her: "I'm going to lose half my virginity reading this book!"
So there you have it, go get it!

I read this book while travelling abroad in Italy. It was one of the few books my roommate and I were able to find in English. Forrest writes a female character who is both sensitive and strong. A cunning comedic novel that is also heartfelt and relatable.

first of all this is total chick-lit which is not my thing... second of all it was HORRIBLE. it wandered on aimlessly and i kept reading because i figured it HAD to get better... but it didn't. i'm not kidding when i say that this is the ONLY book that i didn't bother was THAT bad

Really enjoyed the makeup naming bits. The rest was amusing, but not hugely. And what's with all the crying?

This is a hilarious love story about a neurotic 23 year old girl who names make up for a living. I recommend this book to every young woman. It is entertaining, funny, and smart.

This was a good story, but the heroine(s) was/were unlikable, so that it was not as good as it could have been. Very disappointing for a book named after one of my favorite lipsticks.

This book may not seem to have a definite plot, but you pull for the character to make it through her ordeals!

I loved, loved, loved Emma Forrest's autobiography but I find her fiction grating. Her characters are kind of infuriating and there's just so much whining - SO MUCH. She's a lovely writer though.
