In Styles 100 Best Beauty Buys of 2010 – Snooze anyone?

I used to eagerly await In Styles Best Beauty Buys edition every year. Last year I was a little disappointed in it. This year? I feel like I’m reading last years, with new art work.

If you haven’t seen it it goes something like this: Sisley, Dermalogica, Lancome, Bobbi Brown.

The best night cream costs £454! Oh hold on and I’ll get out my purse. Are they serious? Give us something to work with.

I’m imagining thousands of women running out to buy Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation (In Styles Best Liquid Foundation) expecting good coverage and being sorely disappointed.

I expected to read a little about why each product was included in their top 100. Instead there is on average two sentences stating a named make-up artist,facialist etc  who uses the product. Not only do they not mention why, they also drop celebrity names with each product.

What a tacky read!

Their Best Buys should be voted by consumers, who actually buy the products.  Now that would be an interesting read!

What did you think of this years Best Buys?
