Kat Von D, you are a FORCE

Kat Von D is the perfect podcast guest: She's crazy-smart, zero B.S., and funny, too. On this episode, Kat talks about bullies, refusing to compromise on cruelty-free beauty, and lip color that looks good on everyone. 

But before that:

Fat Mascara goes to Washington! We took to the capital to celebrate Kiehl's 165th birthday and their support of the Smithsonian's Cosmetics and Personal Care Collections Digitization Project, which is INCREDIBLE: a museum specialist has photographed, ID'd, and described info for approximately 90,000 personal care and cosmetics objects in the Smithsonian's massive online "beauty" museum, which anyone can peruse online. We strongly urge any beauty obsessive or history buff to check it out, but be warned: It's kind of addicting! We geeked out when we saw some of the products in person, and we talk about some of our favorites on the show. For example, Outdoor Girl Face Powder and this ad for deodorant soap, which was really sad and demented ("The Lonely Mrs. K").

Then, Jenn reveals her shocking acne fix. We don't want to give it away, but you might need this. Or something similar and maybe not as expensive. Just listen—as usual, Jenn has a cool study to back it up!

And let's keep our eye on Calvin Klein, shall we? They just announced the launch of the (drop dead sexy) Deep Euphoria. Combined with their most recent gender-fluid fragrance and the brouhaha over the upskirt shots and vaginal-grapefuit denim ads, Jess feels like CK may be coming home to their weird, sexy roots. Hallelujah, bc if they're not, we're all doomed.
