A critical review of the book GLOSSY, which tells the story of Glossier and its founder Emily Weiss. The reviewer finds the author's tone snarky and questions the objectivity due to the author's professed jealousy. The lack of in-depth insight and repetitive points are also criticized. However, the book is recommended for those interested in the beauty industry and female entrepreneurship.Glossy: Ambition, Beauty, and the Inside Story of Emily Weiss's Glossier: Meltzer, Marisa:

I have to start out by saying I am a makeup, skincare junkie I love it. However I hadn’t heard of the brand Glossier which is my bad but since makeup is my thing I has to listen to this behind the scenes look into the launch of this brand. It was an interesting account of how she launched and started . If you’re interested in how and what it takes to start your own business listen to this.
I love reading biographies but this took me some time to finish. Writing is not the best and there is an overarching bias from the writer against the subject.
As Stevo’s Novel Ideas, I am a long-time book reviewer, member of the media, an Influencer, and a content provider. I received this book as a review copy from either the author, the publisher or a publicist. I have not been compensated for this recommendation. I have given it a Best of the Best designation for the month of October, 2023, as it stands heads above other recently published books on this topic or genre.
This reads a bit like a brand case study with some biographical bits about the founder shoehorned in. I love beauty and I love marketing, so expected to love this...but there's just not that much to say about Glossier, to be honest. There isn't that much to say about its founder, either. It all felt rather drawn out at times, and though the book kept hinting at some kind of dramatic downfall (for both founder and brand), it never really came to pass.
I was excited to read this book, but it comes off as snarky. The author has some internal insecurities and chooses to reconcile this by heavily criticizing someone who had the guts to build an empire. I learned nothing and was put off by the jealous tone.
I had to throw in the towel on this book 1/3 of the way through. Was so excited to learn more about the talented Emily Weiss, but the author's snarky voice and "insider" observations were so tedious that I forgot who the book was even about. At some point, I hope Emily will partner with a capable biographer who will let her tell her own story instead of a career journalist focusing on gotcha tidbits and word salad.
The last 10 years in beauty have been nothing short of fascinating, but this book doesn't begin to scratch the surface. What remains is an incomplete biography of Emily Weiss, written via Emily's perspective, without any of the cultural context required to truly understand and critique the broader shifts in culture that Glossier is in large part responsible for. There's a story here, but the author can't see the forest for the trees.
Marisa Meltzer is an established journalist who really delves into her subjects. As someone who grew up in the Into the Gloss/Glossier era, I found this book to be an insightful portrait of both brand and founder and really enjoyed Meltzer’s insight into Emily Weiss. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn more about the beauty industry and/or what it takes to be a female founder/#girlboss.
And was disappointed because it was basically a long article. It is in turn snarky and dull. There was very little insight into what drives Emily as a business person or what in her background accounts for her drive.
It does make the point that it is impossible for women to be flawed in any way and not unfairly scrutinized when they are professionally ambitious.
Very few relevant thoughts, far too many pages, needlessly pedantic.

A beginner-friendly metal detector that is best suited for dry land is Amazon's top pick for a non-name-brand MD. This metal detector has a pinpoint marker but may beep intermittently in damp sand and is not suitable for finding small pieces of gold. Users found the pin point function to be intermittent and recommended buying a separate pin pointer. The Minelab Vanquish 340 is a better option for those willing to spend an extra $70.
