Imagine a cozy, ecofriendly Sephora. The locally owned Fig & Flower offers only nontoxic brands (like RMS Beauty and Alima Pure) in a luxe but inviting Poncey-Highland shop, where employees help customers tailor cosmetics for skin type and tone. You don’t have to worry about green-washing here: Each brand is carefully researched by owner Sara Lamond, who’s dedicated to finding sustainable, nontoxic, and cruelty-free goods. shopfigandflower.com
