Youth Radio

It is a weekly ritual for some girls--stopping by the makeup counter to check out the latest beauty lines. At 19, Youth Radio’s Joi Morgan makes it her business to know what’s in, when it comes to the latest cosmetics. But only recently has she started to wonder about the contents of the products she puts on her face--lipstick in particular. As part of Youth Radio's Innovation Lab, Morgan brings us the story, "The Lipstick Diaries: The Ugly Side of Beauty Products."

Youth Radio's Innovation Lab is a collaboration of the show's newsroom and app development efforts, which previously operated as separate programs. In the lab, young people integrate journalism and programming to design dynamic new storytelling tools and platforms and produce multimedia stories relating to science, technology, engineering and math.
