EPISODE 18: THE WORD NO WOMAN LIKES TO HEAR

We hit lots of hot topics in this week's episode. First up: Halle Berry's undercut tattoo look—and our thoughts on the potential grow-out. If that particular haistyle isn't for you, perhaps you'd be more into a "slick-back," the scraped-back, wet-haired look that all the cool girls have been wearing on the red carpet lately. (Please tweet us some suggested names for this style because we really don't know what to call it.) We also talked about problems with the fast-beauty makeup model, like the subpar Becca X Jaclyn Hill palette and the broken Jeffree Star Skin Frost highlighters. Finally, our producer/test bunny Vicky filled us in on how it's going with her Plume natural lash enhancer. Best of all, we have Autumn Whitefield-Madrano, author of the newly released Face Value: The Hidden Ways Beauty Shapes Women's Lives, on the podcast to talk about about why her book is the next The Beauty Myth (our words, not hers—she's not braggy like that).
