YOUTH IN REVOLT
Every piece of jewelry made by Laser Kitten’s founder and creative director Marisa Ravel is a sweet sucker punch to my nostalgic heart. From the bedazzled Furbies to the colorful Tamagotchi earrings, rhinestone Clueless pendants, and Spice Girls charms (prices vary, laserkitten.com), I’m immediately transported to my youth. –marie lodi
If vegan lip color is your love language, you’ll get heart eyes for Glass Gloss. Woman-owned and operated, this cruelty-free beauty brand makes shades that protect and moisturize—like the sparkly “Stargaze Pink" ($12, glassgloss.com)—and that actually stay put, whether you’re sipping or smooching. –emily rems
Curious about trying faux bangs, a Madonna circa Blond Ambition Tour ponytail, or experimenting with some serious Crystal Gayle length? Then online retailer Insert Name Here Hair needs to be on your radar. Founded by beauty-industry besties Jordynn Wynn and Sharon Pak, this affordable hair-extension brand ($29 to $119, inhhair.com) will make sure you never have a bad hair day again. –m.l.
BEHIND THE SEAMS
There are more clothes in existence now than ever before, and that’s not a good thing for a myriad of reasons, not just the ecological impact. In Worn Out: How Our Clothes Cover Up Fashion’s Sins, former Teen Vogue and InStyle editor Alyssa Hardy take a hard look at the brutal repercussions the fast-fashion industry has on the millions of garment workers it employs—who are mostly women of color. –m.l.
Lila Robles, aka Nail Jerks (@nailjerks), is a legend in the nail art world. Her specialty lies in air-brushing, inspired by the designs she saw on lowriders and at county fairs growing up. Every rainbow-hued manicure she paints, from sad clowns to Mariah Carey album-ready butterflies, is a tiny, magical masterpiece. –m.l.
