Too much retouching?

Just spent 3-4 hours working on this shot, and I wonder if I've gone too far.

Here's a link to the set, including the original photo, and some edits. 1200X800 resolution, so definitely not hi-res.

Her forehead was a nightmare to get that hair gone, and now it looks a bit plasticky, her throat is similar, but doesn't bother me as much since it's in shadow.

Ah well, at least I'm progressing. Any other tips/suggestions?

If you ask me it looks quite good. I feel the B&W have an overexposed look to them but that might just be my taste speaking. The others look ok and not overphotoshoped. At least for my taste.

Thanks. I've removed the original photo, as I gave the model access to that folder so she could see her fashion/glam photo. Just in case, the photo I'm referring too is the one with the hoodie

I think it looks just about right in the larger picture. The forehead has a nice soft look but you have kept the hair natural looking.

I like your retouch
Shadows on the back of her leg seems to strong to me, maybe for my taste
