On February 8th, Fort Mason's Gallery 308 will host Credo's inaugural Clean Beauty Summit. The mission is simple: to bring clean beauty to everyone. There will be meet-and-greets and master classes on hot topics with the cream of the (clean) crop—think Indie Lee, Ellis Brooklyn founder Bee Shapiro, and Marie Veronique lead esthetician Eleanor Bagley-Suda. Plus, more than 25 clean beauty brands (including Tata Harper, Ursa Major, RMS Beauty, Juice Beauty, and Saint Jane) will showcase their bestsellers while complimentary beauty services (mini facials, makeup applications, brow waxing, and hair touch-ups) are also on the agenda. Also look out for plenty of healthy sips and snacks and, oui oui, gift bags for all. General admission tickets are $45 and include entrance and a gift bag worth $150. Master classes are an additional $15 each. // 11am–4pm, Feb. 8 at Fort Mason's Gallery 308, 2 Marina Blvd. (Marina), credobeautysummit.com; tickets are available at eventbrite.com.
Everlane wants you to up your legging game for booty's sake.

Designed to do everything you do—run errands, run on the treadmill, run through SFO—Everlane's new Perform legging is as versatile as they come. The sleek leggings are made of technical Italian fabric and are available in four shades: black, ink grey, brandy rose, and lichen. Along with lightweight compression and sweat-wicking properties, they're made of mostly recycled nylon and dyed without harmful chemicals. We cant get enough of the minimalist design (i.e. few irritating seams), lovely feel, and seriously flattering fit. Each pair is $58…compared to $100 for a similar quality legging, according to the SF brand. Oh how we love thee, radical transparency. // 461 Valencia St. (Mission), everlane.com
These new lip colors from Aether Beauty will make your day—and your pout.

If lippies and clean beauty are your thing (we're raising two hands over here), you need to pucker up for Aether Beauty's Radiant Ruby Lip Crème. The just-launched super-hydrating/non-sticky product is part liquid lip, part buttery lip cream and comes in 12 gorgeous shades. (We're swooning over the mauve-y nude called Protect.) Ingredients include organic rose hip oil, and elderberry fruit and plumeria flower extracts, known for their hydrating and moisturizing powers. But the real wow-factor here is the infusion of rubies. Yes, rubies. The sparkling crimson gemstone helps nourish, heal, and hydrate the skin to provide better blood flow and remove unwanted toxins. But that's not all: Like all products from the SF clean beauty brand, founded by former Sephora alum Tiila Abbitt, the decadent lip crème is vegan, cruelty- and gluten-free, and comprised of both natural and non-toxic synthetic ingredients. The packaging is 100 percent PCR recycled plastic, marking the first time in the beauty world that a lip component has been fully recyclable. Props! // Radiant Ruby Lip Crème ($28) is available exclusively online at Sephora.
Dolls Kill's V-Day Collection is tailor-made for all you drama queens.

Whether your style skews treacly sweet, full-bore sexy, or somewhere in between, Dolls Kill has a frock, bralette, baby tee, faux-fur bomber, or corset for you. This, thanks to the SF label's new Sugar Thrillz collection designed with Valentine's Day (and eve) in mind. The 18-piece collection ($18–$145)—inspired by Marie Antoinette's over-the-top romantic aesthetic with a twist of cam girl style—features renaissance-esque floral prints, hearts aplenty, lace detailing, ribbons, and tulle. The pieces come in adult and extended sizes. We instantly fell for this fuzzy pink sweater. // 1475 Haight St. (Haight-Ashbury), dollskill.com
