One of my fave podcasts in the beauty space

Love this pod and really enjoy the biweekly episodes! Such a good idea to split up the beauty news and discussion from the interviews with those in the beauty world. As a podcaster myself I understand how much time this takes and really appreciated it! Definitely doesn’t go unnoticed by the FM crew!

JulieNEChan ,

Amazing!

Such a great podcast, love how real the hosts are and how much work they put into each episode! The guests are always really entertaining and I always come out of an episode having learned something, keep up the good work Jenn and Jess!

I love these guys so much!!

Honestly, Fat Mascara is my favourite podcast ever. Listening to Jen and Jess is so much fun and every episode brightens my day!

I’m not sure when I discovered the podcast but it was only 3 or 4 months ago and I’ve gone through the whole back catalogue.

It so great, so informative and full of joy. I always loved beauty but this has helped me love it on a new level.

Thank you guys!!!
