We have some catching up to do on the SXSW front! In today’s episode we take you through the ins and outs of the House of Modern Beauty hosted by RealSelf, including the #glowdown on which cosmetic treatments were offered absolutely free (you’ll want a ticket next year, trust.) You’ll also find out which beauty activation had us jotting down a shopping list to try to re-create the Victoria’s Secret-inspired look ourselves. And, Jill let’s you know everything about Miraval’s newest luxury outpost in Austin, where she recuperated from a late-night out with a celebrity facialist befriended at SXSW (what??!!)

Up next, we’re talking Glossier Play— just in time for the news that the “unicorn” brand now has a $1.2 billion dollar valuation with new funding led by Sequoia Capital. (Wanna re-acquaint yourself with how Emily Weiss started it all? Have a listen to the founder herself in Episode 11.) But is the new foray into hardcore cosmetics all it’s cracked up to be? We talk controversy and how to fix a PR problem fast.

Finally, if you’re a fan of Instagram star Donté Colley, you’re not going to want to miss his drop-in to the studio at around 22 minutes, when he reveals how he shot from 10K to 650K followers virtually overnight with his life-giving dance moves, coupled with motivational words bouncing from his every twerk. The Toronto-based influencer also shares which skincare line is topping his #topshelf, what it was like to star in the Glossier Play campaign– and naturally, some words of encouragement for his growing tribe. Surprise! Mama Leeanne Colley is also in the house – meet the new Kris Jenner who happens to be Toronto’s Nail Queen!
