About Us

Behind every best-selling beauty product, there's a damn good story. Two longtime magazine beauty editors, Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins, chat about the breakthrough beauty products lining store shelves, and how they came to be. In this bi-weekly segment, we talk to the industry’s most genius founders, and find out how they broke into the biz, with a little beauty idea that blew up into a million-dollar success story. Find out which products beauty editors and insiders really hoard, while hearing the struggles and successes behind the world's buzziest beauty brands. Plus, every other week, we deliver the #TheGlowDown on the best new products worth the spend, and chat with industry insiders on the latest hot topics in hair, makeup and all things skin.Co-Creators: Carlene Higgins and Jill Dunn Find us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, ACast, PocketCasts and moreJoin the Breaking Beauty Podcast conversation:Instagram.com/breakingbeautypodcastTwitter.com/BreakingBtyPodwww.facebook.com/BreakingBeautyPodcastTheme Music used with permission, courtesy of Saya.

Meet Kilian Hennessy, Founder of By Kilian Fragrances

Today we take you inside the mind of French fragrance founder Kilian Hennessy, who launched his range of luxe scents, By Kilian, in 2007. Find out why his bold gourmand blend, Love Don’t Be Shy, is Rihanna’s ride-or-die perfume (it’s sold out in every store around the world!) We also introduce you to the all-time best-seller, Good Girl Gone Bad, a white floral that comes in a Serpentine-embellished, lacquer clutch. Plus, Kilian spills all on his next creation launching this month – his biggest departure from the 35 existing fragrances he’s created to date. But that’s not all. Last year, Kilian introduced the world to scented lipsticks! Listen to the end to find out whether more perfumed cosmetics are to come… If the name sounds familiar, Kilian Hennessy is indeed of Hennessy ilk. Here, the dapper Frenchman recalls his family’s history starting out in cognac, which led to the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) empire. Brushes with famous perfumers, intimate details working with a bad boy designer, and the real reason Kilian refused to work for big fragrance companies – whether you love perfume or not, you’ll not want to miss the origin story behind the sleeper label unafraid to make a big statement.
