Waterstones Says

Respected Guardian beauty columnist Sali Hughes takes readers on a fascinating tour of beauty’s game-changers from the classic scent of Chanel No. 5’s to the latest must-buys.

‘Sali Hughes has created a universe filled with galaxies of beauty secrets’ Charlotte Tilbury

Packed full of wisdom from Britain’s most trusted beauty journalist, Pretty Iconic considers which much-hyped beauty buys are worth the buzz and who they are best suited for.

In Pretty Iconic Sali Hughes uses her witty, inclusive and discerning style to look at some of the most significant products in beauty – from treasured classics such as Chanel No 5, to life-changers such as Babyliss Big Hair, and the more recent releases from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and others that are shaping the beauty industry today. Sali takes us from the evocative smell of Johnson’s baby lotion through to Simple Face wipes, NARS Orgasm and beyond, looking at the formative role beauty plays in our lives.
