There was some really funny parts to this, but unfortunately that seemed to be all there was to this book..
There didn't seem to be much of a point to the story at all.. I found some of the humor to be over dose to the point of distraction.. the story just didn't flow smoothly either..
I did enjoy some of the characters and the friendships between Charlie, Dawn and Kate.. Also between Charlie and Drew.. Drew was annoyingly charming.
Funniest part was an elephant named Cinderellaphant :)
Description from the publisher:
Charlize "Charlie" Edwards certainly knows, in theory, what it takes to lead a successful and happy life. She owns a nice house in Silverlake, LA's trendiest neighborhood. She has glamorous and loyal friends who accompany her to the hottest clubs in town. And she works as the personal assistant to Drew Stanton, Hollywood's sexiest movie star. But she's also turning 30, chronically single, and faced with serving as maid of honor at her younger sister's wedding. Charlie finds herself struggling to juggle the chaos of wedding planning (while wondering if she'll ever wear the white dress herself), her all-consuming job for lunatic boss Stanton, and a serious crush on Jordan, a photographer on the set of Drew's latest feature--a man who might actually return her feelings. A page-turner from start to finish, A Total Waste of Makeup puts a fresh face on women's fiction.
