That 6 ft. Barbie we reference in this episode's title? It's Theo Kogan, makeup artist, mom, model, singer, songwriter, punk rocker, and founder of Armour Beauty. She gives us a great interview! Before that, we get into our favorite Olympic beauty looks and sound off on the doofuses who appeared on Fox to debate whether or not Olympians should wear makeup. Jenn—who is so not an Olympian—tries to figure out what to do about the bruises on her legs. And, finally, we talk about the difference between cosmetics and drugs, a discussion sparked by this New York Times article that reports on the continuing saga of Wen cleansing conditioner and the power the government may (or may not) have to act. If you want to learn more about cosmetic and drug safety and testing, we suggested you read about it on the FDA's site. And to our point about how some skin creams are probably drugs that get away with being marketed as cosmetics because they are very careful with their labeling and claims, check out this page. The products mentioned in the episode are below. And, as always, if you have any questions you can email us or comment on our Twitter or Instagram or Facebook page.
