"A bold lip has been part of my signature look for years, and I love the creamy finish on this deep red. It's one of the few makeup items that makes me feel ready to venture into the world, and the name — Brave Red — is a happy coincidence." — Christina Amoroso, executive editor
"My Telfar bag! Black people helped popularize the logomania trend in the '90s but brands didn't value inclusivity then. Now, we're seeing money invested back into the community at a Black-owned company. That's the embodiment of strength." — Jessica Andrews, deputy fashion editor. See similar items here.
"Fenty's Flyliner makes mastering winged liner a breeze, thanks to its flexible tip. For me, drawing on that perfect wing says, 'I'm not afraid to be noticed, and yes, I mastered this look the way I'll master anything else thrown my way.'" — Shea Simmons, beauty writer
"I'm pretty self conscious about my round face, and while no product can erase insecurities, this bronzer comes close. I layer it under foundation, and it makes me feel more put together and ready to face the day." — Olivia Truffaut-Wong, associate entertainment editor
"I've always felt my best self when I'm comfy, and Birkenstocks are peak comfort for me. The zinna orange shade makes me feel powerful — because what's bolder than macaroni orange shoes?" — Hannah Caldwell, senior social media editor. Sizes 5-10.5 See items in more colors here.
"My goal is to come out of quarantine with healthier skin, and the key to that is combating dark spots since my skin is acne-prone. This sunblock has SPF 50 and the formula is lightweight, hydrating, and packed with antioxidants." — Princess Gabbara, associate lifestyle editor
"These jeans have been my go-to for the past few years. The fit magically makes me feel better no matter what side of the bed I get up on. I wear them with everything from silk camisoles and flats to cotton T-shirts and sneakers." — Avery Matera, fashion writer. Sizes 23-32
"As a 36DD, I didn't think life without underwire was possible until Kim K. came to my rescue. A style much like this Sculpting Bralette, the SKIMS Body Bra (not currently available) makes me incredibly comfortable." — Sam Rullo, senior manager, Editorial Operations. Sizes XXS-5X
"Running is not my favorite, but if I absolutely have to, these shoes make it happen. They're ridiculously comfortable, and while I favor the classic black-and-white combo, I love that they come in so many colorways." — Mekita Rivas, fashion writer. Sizes 5-11.5
