Paula Begoun says,“Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Department Without Me”


Paula Begoun Discussion and Signing for “Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Department Without Me” at Borders Books on Michigan Avenue. Pictured, Paula sermonizes on the subject she knows best: COSMETICS!


Women spend an extraordinary amount of money on cosmetics--$45 billion a year in the U.S. alone. Now in its fourth edition, “Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me” strikes fear in cosmetics-counter consultants everywhere. First off, Begoun has deconstructed ingredient lists. Ever wonder what methylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben are doing in your mascara? And what is diazolidinyl urea? All four are potential irritants, and the latter is a preservative that can release formaldehyde, a class A carcinogen. Buyer beware. Begoun also lists which companies are cruelty-free and which continue to conduct animal testing. The majority of the book--and that's nearly 800 pages--is devoted to reviews of thousands of cosmetics, from cleansers, foundations, alpha-hydroxy acids, and moisturizers to lip liners, eye shadows, and concealers, all of which Begoun has personally tested.
