    Deepica Mutyala on growing Live Tinted's complexion category

    Deepica Mutyala on growing Live Tinted's complexion category

    In May, Live Tinted turned five years old. The brand was founded by Deepica Mutyala, a veteran of both the corporate beauty space, as a one-time manager at Birchbox, and the creator space — Mutyala has 502,000 followers on Instagram. Live Tinted launched in 2018, four years after Mutyala went viral on YouTube (333,000 followers) for a video about correcting dark circles with red lipstick. That video, which has 10 million views, landed her a segment on "The Today Show," and led to her quitting her full-time job and focusing full-time on the beauty brand.
    Today, Live Tinted sells the Huestick All-Over Color Corrector, which is inspired by Mutyala's viral hack. The brand also doubling down on complexion products. Live Tinted's Hueguard Skin Tint SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum, which has become a best-seller, was an inflection point for the brand, Mutyala said. She now believes Live Tinted can become known for its complexion category.
    On this week’s episode of the Glossy Beauty Podcast, Mutyala discusses how she always knew she'd start a beauty brand and what progress has been made since the BLM movement in 2020. She also talks about why the complexion category has been, and will continue to be, a game changer for Live Tinted.

    Mielle's Monique Rodríguez on prioritizing 'innovation and meeting the needs of the ever-changing consumer'

    When Mielle Organics founder and CEO Monique Rodriguez started the textured hair-care brand in her kitchen 10 years ago, her goal was to create healthy organic products for her textured hair.

    Prequel Skin's Dr. Sam Ellis: 'There's space for a dermatologist-founded brand that is more approachable and not prestige'

    Prequel Skin's Dr. Sam Ellis: 'There's space for a dermatologist-founded brand that is more approachable and not prestige'

    Prequel Skin is less than a year old. But the direct-to-consumer brand, founded by dermatologist Dr. Sam Ellis, in partnership with Ben Bennett's incubator, The Center, has caught on. That can be owed, at least in part, to Ellis's social following: She has 336,000 YouTube subscribers, 226,000 Instagram followers and over 129,000 followers on TikTok.
    The brand's products span multitasking cleansers and moisturizers for the face and body, skin barrier-boosting ointments and a duo of serums, including one with vitamin C and one meant to address skin redness.
    On this week’s episode of the Glossy Beauty Podcast, Dr. Ellis discusses how she came to create content as a dermatologist, why that's proven valuable, why she partnered with The Center and how her brand is inspired by favorite French pharmacy products.

    Prose CMO Megan Streeter: AI is at the core of who we are

    Prose CMO Megan Streeter: AI is at the core of who we are

    When Prose launched in 2017, custom hair care was an untapped market, allowing the brand to disrupt the space. Since then, Prose has sold over 10 million units and expanded to skin care, in May 2023.
    May 2023 also marked a significant milestone for Prose: It reached profitability before bringing in about $135 million in sales for the year. In 2024, co-founder and CEO Arnaud Plas estimates the brand will do about $160 million in sales. Plas credited the brand's skin-care line as a major driving force behind its profitability. It has been reported that the category accounts for about 10% of the brand's sales.
    In its next stage of growth, Prose will use its learnings and tech innovation to expand into new categories, including textured hair care, and build upon its momentum in skin care.
    Three years into leading marketing for Prose, CMO Megan Streeter joined the Glossy Beauty Podcast to chat about what's next for the brand, how it's further revolutionizing beauty tech and how the customization market is expanding.

Overall Great But Inconsistent Based On Guest

Hands down the Tatcha and Wander Beauty episodes are THE BEST. The founders share a passion for their companies and customers and it’s obvious. Lots of good info in those episodes and I learned a lot. The RMS episode is simply awful: the founder is condescending and thinks she’s funny. Skip the LOLA episode as she sounds like a marketing robot. All marketing language and no soul.

Good content but host is unbearable

I’ve listened about 6 episodes and the guests and interviews have been great and very interesting but each time they cut to the host, it’s awful. She talks like a ditsy teenager and has a lisp. What were they thinking…was no one else a available to host this podcast?
