Ep 26 - We catch up with skincare expert Caroline Hirons and test-drive Glossier Lash Slick

Caroline Hirons Breaking Beauty Podcast

Listen here:

Without a doubt one of our most requested guests is *The* skincare guru, Caroline Hirons. The trained aesthetician and YouTuber is as famous for her no-bullshit attitude as she is her incredible skincare knowledge. Lucky for us, we were able to catch The Hirons in town for the launch of Indeed Labs' new Hydraluron Intense Moisture Lotion, to quiz her on which drugstore products she's loving now, which acids are okay to mix before bedtime—and details on one of her latest, very worthy, Instagram takedowns.

Ep 11 - Emily Weiss, CEO and Founder of Glossier

Emily Weiss Glossier Canada

Listen here: 

She's the Founder and CEO to watch, and she started a revolution with Glossier, a millennial beauty brand that's commanded line-ups around the block with its era-defining pink-and-white packaging and its inclusive, raw beauty campaigns. She's Emily Weiss, and she's the 32-year-old  New Yorker fronting Entrepreneur Magazine and Forbes' lists alike. 

Find out why the other leading beauty brands are chasing Glossier's "v-commerce" business model (we didn't know what it was either!); learn the secrets behind Emily's editorial roots - including whose bathroom was the most epic for #TopShelf, her art for crowd-sourcing the brand's next innovations; and what she really remembers about those days interning at Vogue and making her debut on The Hills.

But most importantly, why is Glossier's Boy Brow the number one best-seller, exactly? We weigh in with our review of the most iconic product. Plus, don't miss Emily's personal beauty hacks—and what she wore to our interview.
