Diana Madison Beauty Glowtopia Face Oil

For beauty influencer Diana Madison, it all started with the goal to create a beauty brand that empowered women, especially mothers. The mom herself worked to create this magically formulated Glowtopia Face Oil, and needless to say, the product took off. With prickly pear seed oil, apricot kernel oil, vitamins E and K and rose geranium oil, the moisturizer works to improve elasticity and brighten under-eye circles— and it really does the trick. Reviewers come back to restock on the face oil because of its scent and how it restores dry skin with a dewy glow.

Toi et Moi Ring

For handcrafted, trendy and versatile jewelry, take a scroll through IceLink's necklaces, rings, bracelets and more. With jewelry for both women and men, the brand was launched in 2003 by father-daughter duo, Andy and Suzy Sogoyan, with decades-long roots in the jewelry industry.

Our personal fave piece at IceLink? This Toi et Moi Ring that features two distinctive pear and marquise gemstones nestled on a simple gold band.

Dose of Colors - Liquid Matte Lipstick

If you're looking for the perfect liquid matte lipstick, don't look any further than this rich, pigmented, long-wearing lipstick from Dose of Colors. Founder Anna Petrosian knows a thing or two about creating a killer liquid matte lipstick, but that's not where her expertise ends. The freelance makeup artist used her decade-long experience to launch the cruelty-free cosmetics line in 2013, and Dose of Colors now has a ton of must-have products ranging from lip oils, foundations and eyeshadow palettes.

Ladybug Set

Upgrade your kitchenware in time for spring with Shushan Collection's newly launched exclusive kitchen collection. Founded by LadyBugs Catering and Events CEO, Shushan Darzian, the launch of this simply stunning porcelain collection was inspired by her desire to share her love of cooking and hosting with others. The plates and bowls are delicately designed with a pair of gold-toned ladybugs settled atop an embossed branch. Not only are these the perfect practical plates and bowls to serve all your favorite dishes, but they also make for the perfect gift. (Hint: Mother's Day is right around the corner!)

Ian Charms DMP Necklace

Ian Charms' vibrant and playful pieces serve up a trendy, nostalgic feel that we can't get enough of. Founded by Lisa Sahakian, each unique Ian Charms gem is handcrafted in Los Angeles. All you need to take your outfit to the next level is a colorful bracelet or necklace from the brand, like this new addition with freshwater pearls and eye-catching glass star beads.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Scented Body Oil

If you're one of the many obsessed with the timeless and irresistible scent of Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum, you can also enjoy the iconic scent in the form of a scented body oil. The French-Armenian perfumer's successful Baccarat Rouge 540 scent can be taken a notch higher by first layering this hydrating and illuminating body oil, which has dreamy notes of jasmine, saffron, cedarwood and ambergris that give off a woodier scent than the original perfume.

Remnants | Earring

Elevate your wardrobe with a piece from Italy-based fashion brand, Khosrov. The Los Angeles-born Armenian designer launched his namesake label with the goal to coalesce rich Armenian heritage with a modern sensibility, and his whimsical, inviting designs always tell a story. This particular hand-cut earring was made from deconstructed, traditional Armenian necklaces that were chained back together, resulting in a statement piece that will make you feel like you're wearing a piece of history.

Chili Chews Fruit Bites

Satisfy your sweet (and spicy) tooth with any of Chili Chews' delectable fruit bites that are coated with a mixture of cayenne, chili peppers, salt, dehydrated lime juice and more for an extra kick. The brand was introduced to the world during the pandemic by Shant and Vicken, two childhood best friends with a shared love of candy. Ever since their launch, they've sold over a million bags of Chili Chews, and are only expanding their gourmet chili candy empire.

Persona Identity Eyeshadow Palette

If you're a sucker for a neutral eye look, you need to get your hands on this eyeshadow palette from Persona Cosmetics. The brand was founded by Sona Gasparian, who immigrated from Armenia at the age of 12 and fell in love with all things beauty as she watched her mom work as a hairstylist.

This particular palette has 12 rich, neutral shades that were particularly formulated to enhance brown eyes, including six buildable and blendable matte shades and six intense, lustrous shimmers. The palette is also travel-friendly, so you can toss it into your cosmetics bag wherever you're headed.

From face mask chains, phone lanyards and camera chains, all of the brand's playful and functional products will add some stylish protection to your most-used and prized possessions. We love these lightweight, colorful chain lanyard straps that can be attached to phones, masks, sunnies or even worn as a necklace.

Whether you prefer an at-home manicure or need to touch up your polish between salon visits, ella+mila's long-lasting, chip resistant nail polishes are a must-have. Founder Narineh Bedrossian launched the brand in 2017, feeling inspired to craft nail polish formulas that were colorful, free of harmful chemicals and cruelty-free for her young twin daughters, who wanted to start painting their nails. With 58 shades to choose from over at Amazon, the brand has a vegan nail polish color for everyone.
