Current Obsession - Fat Mascara

I can’t say that podcasts have ever been something that was on my radar. On my iPhone, it was an app I never opened, and I knew very little about them. I didn’t think there’d be anything of interest to me. Man, was I wrong? Cue Ashleigh, my bestie, and another spot on recommendation. Fat Mascara. Two words I never thought I would put together in a sentence. But type those two words into the search tool on your Podcast app, and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.


So what is it all about? Meet friends and hosts Jessica Matlin and Jennifer Goldstein. This bubbly, dynamic duo put out this weekly podcast, where they chat all things beauty. Both girls are beauty editors by day, with Jess being the current deputy beauty editor for Cosmopolitan magazine (hands up who loves that magazine? Me!), while Jenn is the executive beauty and health editor for MarieClaire. Now, if these two can’t get you all the hot gossip, who can?

Combining their insider knowledge with stories of their beauty mishaps and successes, dishing the dirt on the latest miracle products and the products we should maybe give a miss. Now, I’m always looking out for new products that I haven’t tried before or even heard of. With an hour commute to and from work, I’ve got a fair bit of time to kill – normally spent playing Candy Crush or Bubble Shooter. When Ash first mentioned the Fat Mascara Podcast I didn’t think I’d squeeze the time in to listen to

The girls have had a fab selection of guests including beauty queen Kat Von D, YouTube stars Patrick Starrr and MannyMUA, nail guru Deborah Lippmann and beachy waves expert Sarah Potempa.  Hearing the inside gossip from these beauty insiders is really insightful and interesting – I’ve learnt a lot, and discovered some new favourites!

I’m so glad I was introduced to the girls’ podcast, it’s such a nice way to spend a half hour, and gives me that beauty fix I crave on the daily.

Love Lexie
