Bulletproof Mascara by Bethany Maines

4 stars
R- 1

Cute, fluffy, a bit silly and a lot of fun.

Welcome to the world of Mary Kay... oh, I'm sorry, Carrie Mae.  An international foundation and cosmetics company.  At least, that's their public face.  On the not-so-public side, they're an organization that trains women for international espionage.

Seriously, if I could get lipstick that transformed into a stun gun or foundation that was also a plastic explosive, I just might buy make-up more often. ;)

This started a little slow for me, but it was funny and kept me entertained.  A second book is coming out in a couple months and I expect it won't be as slow because it won't have so much set-up.

Recommended-- especially for any fans of She Spies.  (I loved that show.  I mean, yeah, it was dumb.... otherwise it would have had a time slot better than late Saturday night.  But still.)

Counts for the Reader's Choice and Support Your Local Library challenges.


  1. Cute cover and sounds like a fun book.

  2. Always good to come across something that brings a smile to my face.
    As a big fan of the man from U.N.C.L.E. as a child, this might be a good read for me.

  3. Very fun. You guys should try it. :)

    Sequel coming out soon!! :D
