Ep 81 - #TheDamnGoods Summer Empties Edition

Kissing the summer goodbye!

Kissing the summer goodbye!

The summer is unofficially over and while we can’t wait to stock our topshelf for fall, we thought it would be fun to chat about the damn good products that really saw us through the summer of 2019. So welcome to our very special episode all about the warm weather staples that we loved to the very last drop. Go-to sunscreen? Check. Glossy-chic lippie in every straw bag? You know it. Pore clearing mask? All over this one. Meet the new finds that made it into heavy rotation –  and some old cult favourites that we fell in love with all over again. Consider this an End of Summer #empties party, and you’re invited.

We open up on our real feelings about the Deciem drama; detail the hidden gems that ruled our top shelf this year (including a liquid lipstick that literally will stay on for days if you want it to); and answer the number one Googled beauty question of 2018 “wtf is a lash lift?” We also explore the latest social beauty movements, like how South Korean women are binning their beauty products, essentially giving the middle finger to the patriarchy and capturing it all on Instagram with the #escapethecorset hashtag.
