Reviews

"Self-help meets memoir. Party girl meets wise sage. Beauty meets reality. Zara Barrie is the cool older sister you wish you had. The one that lets you borrow her designer dresses and ripped up fishnets, buys you champagne (she loves you too much to let you drink beer), and colors your lips with bright pink lipstick. She'll take you to the coolest parties, and will stick by your side and she guides you through the glitter, pain, danger, laughter, and what it means to be a f*cked up girl in this f*cked up world (both of which are beautiful despite the darkness). Girl, Stop Passing Out in Your Makeup is for the girls that are too much of a beautiful contradiction to be contained. Zara is a gifted writer--one second she'll have you laughing over rich girls agonizing over which Birkin bag to buy, the next second she'll shatter your heart in one sentence about losing one's innocence. Zara is the nuanced girl she writes for--light, irreverent, snarky, bitchy, funny; and aching, perceptive, deep, flawed, wise, poised, honest--all at once. Perhaps the only thing that can match Zara's unparalleled wit and big sister advice is her candid humor and undeniable talent for the written word. Zara is one of the most prolific and entertaining honest voices on the internet--and her talent is only multiplied in book form. Girl, Stop Passing Out in Your Makeup is for the bad girls, honey." --Danya Troisi, Executive Editor, GO Magazine
"If Cat Marnell and F. Scott Fitzgerald had a literary baby it would be Zara Barrie. She's got Marnell's casual, dark, downright hilarious tone of an irreverent party girl. But then she also has Fitzgerald's talent for making words literally feel like they sparkle on the page. You instantly feel more glamorous after reading a page of Zara's writing, even when the page is talking about getting into a screaming match with her girlfriend outside of a bar on a Sarasota street corner while high on benzos. I've always been a fan of Zara's writing, but Girl, Stop Passing Out in Your Makeup takes it to the next level. With shimmery words that make her dark stories sparkle, she seamlessly manages to inspire even the most coked-out girl at the party to get her shit together."--Candice Jalili, Senior Sex & Dating Writer, Elite Daily
