Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Shopping is more fun when you can lean on your friends to help — and nowadays, a lot of us turn to Facebook and Instagram to crowdsource recommendations when we need a new pair of jeans, a new backpack, or a new face mask.
That’s why we started the Racked Lounge Facebook group: for our readers and editors to chat with each other about all things shopping and beauty. Deciding what to buy is so much easier when you have hundreds of friends ready to help you hunt down an affordable version of that perfect sweater you saw in a movie. Join the group to can chat with other Racked readers about your favorite things, get a heads-up on sales and deals, and get (and share!) advice on all things shopping, makeup, and skincare.
Plus, you can be a part of Racked stories! You can ask our shopping team a question and it might get answered in a future “Where Can I Find” column, or you can tell us about your favorite products and be included in a future edition of “Reader Recommendations.” And you can always share your thoughts with us on our stories and videos.
We can’t wait to have you!
