Happy fall y’all! This sweater season, there’s so much pumpkin spiced latté goodness to test, we’re making this Best of Fall 2023 round up a 2-Part #DamnGoods Special! First up, Carlene presents a slew of new makeup musts, from makeup artist-developed matte palettes to extreme lip plumpers that rival injections (temporarily, of course.) Look out for our next #DamnGoods in two weeks time, when Jill shares her selection of brilliant fragrance innovations, hotly-anticipated complexion launches and a skincare drop so new, she was one of the first faces in North America to try it out.

In this episode you’ll hear about: 

  • A skin tech concealer so #DamnGood that it seamlessly blends under eyes *and* blurs hyperpigmentation spots
  • The can’t-keep-in-stock brow gel that *actually* locks in a lifted, laminated look for hours 
  • A pressed finishing powder that “snatches” your eye makeup as it “bakes” in undereye brightness
  • Why palettes are back, baby – and the makeup artists bringing fresh perspective to palette fatigue
  • Mascara magic? A red carpet-approved formula that mimics false lashes in photos – as tested at the Toronto Film Festival by Carlene! (Click here to learn more about the L’Oréal Paris Stand Up To Street Harassment initiative we chat about in today’s episode)

Laminated brows? Nope, that’s Rare Beauty Brow Harmony Flexible Lifting Gel (also adored by Jarvis)
