Promising review: "Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from such an inexpensive faux-fur stole, but WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! The fur is silky smooth and looks close to real. It is a great size...not too large, not too small! It has an unnoticeable loop hole, so the stole can stay put instead of sliding everywhere and having to 'hold on' to it with clenched arms. I bought this for my Great Gatsby dress and it fits in perfectly with the dress. If you are considering....I say put it in your cart and check out!! You won't be disappointed!" —rjv4EVER

Amazon

Promising review: "I bought the gray fur blanket and HOLY SMOKES this is the most comfortable blanket I think I’ve ever bought. Was meant to be decor and not really used but I can’t keep it off of me, it’s so soft. I was very surprised by how good of quality it seems, especially for the price. Big enough to cover two people up easily. I’d compare the feeling of the faux fur to something like bunny’s fur, and the Sherpa is very soft as well. Has some decent weight to it and I’ve found it to be very warm so far. All in all, good for the money." —Kaylee Morris

Target

The Lip Bar is a Detroit-based Black- and woman-owned business that sells all vegan and cruelty-free makeup products.

I use The Lip Bar's matte liquid lipsticks often and the formula is truly incredible. It hardly budges at all throughout the day, the pigment is bomb, AND it doesn't dry out my lips at all — which is honestly difficult to find in a matte lipstick.

Promising review: "Love, love, love Lip Bar in 'Bawse Lady'!!! I do not normally wear any lipstick/gloss, but purchased this because it’s vegan and every lady needs a pop of red in her life. And it’s beautiful! I’m a believer and will purchase more colors. It’s not on the cheap end, but it’s worth it. It lasts ALL day and doesn’t get on my teeth." —CaliCat

Skyler Murry / BuzzFeed

Birthdate Candle Co. is a small business hand-pouring candles in the Northeastern US.

Here's what one of my colleagues had to say about it: 

"I am a candle FIEND! And I love astrology! This candle is just the best of both worlds. The label and fragrance are customized based on your birth date to match your 'inner spirit.' The company provides descriptions of your personality, your emblematic tarot card, ruling planet, and ruling number. Such a fun astrological reading in the cutest packaging! I honestly felt like I was getting read to filth but I loved how detailed it was. This candles burns so smoothly, too, and my particular scent of hydrangea, peony, and jasmine is just so me. I love the delicate floral scent as it's strong without being overbearing." —Skyler Murry
