Cute book if you're new to the eco friendly makeup scene, but there's nothing new for those who already know and want to learn something new.

Recommends it for: Anyone starting natural/eco friendly/cruelty free/vegan makeup.
While I wouldn't call this an "ultimate guide" this is an excellent starter guide to "eco-friendly" beauty 5 years later. I recommending it for it's recipes (straight out of the kitchen most of the time) and easy to understand beginner knowledge/jargon all packed into a tiny book. Sometimes books are for beginners and that is 100% ok people. We all have to start somewhere. My suggestion for those wanting more is to look into the resource guide that is in the back of the book.

This is basically a 'get this look' kind of make-up how to, focusing on using natural cosmetic brands. It's very vague and generic. Of course there is useful information about chemicals to avoid in cosmetics, and good suggestions for a few popular natural brands (I was really hoping for there to be more variety in this department!). If you haven't read any green-beauty books yet and want to start with something light and easy, this would be an un-daunting place to start.

Anyone with a basic knowledge of eco friendly cosmetics and beauty (aka the proper way to apply make-up) will find this book at best, campy. No new knowledge is offered, and it drones on.

IF you don't know either of these topics well, then this book may be a treasure trove of information. Otherwise, pass it up.

This book had some interesting information, however it was also full of misinformation. It talked about the campaign for 'safe' cosmetics, which is merely a scare campaign with no basis in fact. I did like the break downs of suggested colors for people and suggested looks. The nutritional sections were also nice.

Oh dear, I wish all these good, ethical people writing 'green' beauty and fashion books would loosen up a little. I'm so on their side, if they could just be a little frivolous, I mean, make-up and fashion are always frivolous, whether eco-friendly or not, I mean, we could all manage in coveralls and clean shiny faces if we had to.
