Critic Reviews

  1. This is a high gloss, prime-time soap but it's a tad too earnest.
  2. 75
    t's not perfect. A few situations and lines are hyped-up "Sex and the City" moments, like when a distraught Lipsticker complains, "I need a cupcake." But if you can moan your way through such moments, the show gets more serious as it goes.
  3. Lipstick Jungle has some good things going for it, including actresses in roles that call for slightly more maturity than we're accustomed to, and juicy enough meanies to give it a little suspense.
  4. 70
    Lipstick Jungle is just as fluffy and soapy as you'd imagine a show based on a book by Candace Bushnell should be, it's still far smarter and more appealing than ABC's rich-and-powerful-lady fluff-fest "Cashmere Mafia."
  5. 63
    All three actresses deserve better dialogue than they are given. But the clothes? They speak volumes.

    What an abomination. More cliches per second than an encyclopedia of cliches.
