Jessica Alba, actress-cum-entrepreneur, stopped by The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to show ol' Jimbo her new makeup line. The beauty initiative is part of Alba's non-toxic baby and cleaning products business, The Honest Company, and includes 66 cosmetic products and 17 skincare products (more details here).
Alba launched the line on September 9th despite a couple class-action lawsuits filed against her company (though that never comes up in the interview because this is a place where you play silly games that end in a Hemsworth winning a wet t-shirt contest and what have you, not where you ask hard questions).
It was all too much excitement for the late night host. He could hardly contain himself and his saliva, showering Alba with both praise and spit. His kid did wear The Honest Company diapers and use its wipes, so it's all very understandable. The interview was continued from across Fallon's tiny desk, where Alba's face was out of range.
