Too many ads

I love the podcast but I’m thinking the girls are panicking about money: The new segments sponsored by companies you’re including in the segment? Jen admitting she was “blowing smoke” to a guest about a shampoo that’s just so-so? In general I love the news, the guests, the science and the skepticism...but I think the advertorial tone (sponsor as guest correspondent!) makes the show less trustworthy. So 5 stars for in general, but 3 stars for this month!

Unsubscribed after years

Unfunny, out of touch, unrelatable.. I could go on. They started out strong and still some of the guests they’ve had were awesome, but it went south in 2019 for me. Ran its course.

Used to be fun but not worthwhile anymore

I listened for a year but recently many things threw me off. The hosts are actually journalists insisting they don’t have a taste for marketing BS and fear mongering in beauty industry and support science rather claims, but they terribly fail to adequately question and challenge the guests that come from such stand points. Examples are MLMs episode, interview with Barbara Sturm, Suzzane Somers, and too faced’s problematic founderAlso I personally can’t stand Jess’s ignorance and deaf tone, excusing her sexist remarks with saying she’s “old fashioned”, complaining about why Virgin Airlines stopped requiring female flight staff to wear red lipstick, etc. After some point it’s just insulting the audience’s taste and intelligence

Valium to my brain

I am a physician and on my days off during this pandemic I go on walk/runs and usually end my exercise by listening to your podcast. I like it because your guests have strong backgrounds in the topics discussed, yet you ladies don’t make it feel like I’m listening to another medical conference lecture. For that I’m grateful and I appreciate you continuing with your work to give us some normalcy. Self care has helped me maintain my sanity!

Disappointing interview w/ Suzanne Somers

I recently learned about this podcast and have been listening to older episodes, which I enjoyed. However, I’m really turned off by today’s interview with Suzanne Somers. For two hosts who claim to really care about science, to have someone come on and say that they healed their cancer(s) with healthy eating and that chemo/radiation is “poison” seems irresponsible. She was also talking about cellular supplements and supplements that can repair your DNA — seems unlikely that these are effective & backed by science [lol you can buy them on her website]. I got the impression that this was mostly an interview to promote her new book & supplements, not because she is an “expert” on anything in any way.

MLM episode was a huge bummer

Yikes! I was really liking this podcast but am soooo disappointed by the way they presented MLMs. They were clearly biased from the start because one of the hosts works with Mary Kay. They didn’t touch on the fact that 99% of MLM contractors LOSE MONEY. The fact that they said multiple times that MLMs are predatory is so irresponsible. I’m gunna have to unsubscribe because now I don’t feel like I can trust them.

Love this podcast, one thought

Love this podcast! Lots of info! Love your guests!!However one of you talk way to fast.. sounds like you fast forward your voice. The other one talks where it’s easy to follow and listen too. Just my thoughts.

Review change

I had to change my review... this show has plummeted. There are so many ads I can no longer tell what’s informational and what’s being sold to me. Ulta and Charlotte tilbury must have quite the hold on you guys. FYI $35 CT lipsticks are not for the average consumer. Jess blaming her hurtful remarks on being “old fashioned” 😔 you sound like a boomer. If this was just a Jen podcast I’d think about tuning back in. You both have grown out of touch with the modern woman living in today’s world.

Easy Listening

I am super late to the Fat Mascara party but I’m so happy to have found this podcast. I love that Jess and Jenn each bring their unique perspectives, and it’s not just the two of them agreeing with each other the whole time. Jess has the best New Yorker accent that makes the listening even more enjoyable and I have to mention that the sound quality is always consistent. They have top notch guests on the show and thanks to them, I’ve purchased some awesome products, including a kids toothpaste I never knew I needed.

MLM

This show lost me with fawning over MLMs which are actually not at all like a normal corporate org chart. Do better for your listeners!

MLM episode

I’m so disappointed in you guys!! It’s so telling that even your “expert” talks about how she was being approached by MLMers not to buy their products, but to join their downline as a seller. Because once again for the people in the back, the ultimate goal is always, always, recruiting!! That’s the whole point of the MLM business model. I love your show, but you really let your audience down on this one.
