The production pace of the beauty and fashion industry is out of control, but what’s the solution?

Also in this episode: Pat McGrath Labs Divine Skin Rose 001; Curlsmith’s acquisition (and the curly-hair soufflé everyone loves); Onda Beauty news; and the intriguing role a Milani concealer palette played in Johnny Depp’s defamation suit against Amber Heard.
