If you've ever wondered what an American Leigh Campbell would be like, wonder no more. 

Her name is Desiree Stordahl and she’s the Research and Education Manager for the cult US skincare brand Paula’s Choice.

Oh, and Desiree’s also spent the last decade writing about all things beauty as a Beauty Editor and author. So when it comes to beauty, she kinda knows what she's talking about.

In this episode of You Beauty, Desiree chats to Amy about whether the price of a skincare product really reflects how well it works, and shares her tips for growing luscious lashes.

And in our Spendy Savey segment, she reveals her favourite lipstick is one you’ll find at the chemist for $5.
