Kate Spade puckers up, Nars help you look smoking’ and Maybellne’s Great Lash mascara turns 40!

1. Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick!

We love Kate Spade’s cute packaging and witty design. And now the brand has partnered with beauty maven Poppy King of Lipstick Queen for an exclusive line of lip shades that, of course, come bottled in the chicest gold tubes with the flirty message “pucker up” written on the side. You’ll need all the frills you can get as the lipsticks, which range in shades from pinks to reds and contain shea butter, coconut oil and vitamin E to moisturize your pout, are a steep $24.

Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick! Available in September at www.katespade.com

Your smoky-eye skills are about to get even sharper. Forget rustling through your makeup bag for various colors — now you can have six shades of Nars’ lush, shimmery “Night Series” eye shadows in one sleek palette. Perfect for touch-ups at the party.

Nars limited-edition Night Series eye shadow palette, $55, www.narscosmetics.com


3. Maybelline Great Lash mascara

Who hasn’t used a tube (or 20) of Maybelline’s best-selling Great Lash mascara —one of the best drugstore purchases ever? This year, the iconic product turns 40; and to celebrate, Maybelline — the official cosmetic sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week — teamed up with designers Max Azria, Tracy Reese and Vivienne Tam to add some glam to our fave green-and-pink tubes.

Beauty picks

Sunless tanners


1: Clinique Self Sun Face Tinted Lotion, $19, www.clinique.com

Pros: It’s super-hydrating, goes on smooth and leaves a natural, streak-free finish.
Cons: Since it’s so hydrating, it might exacerbate oily skin.



2: Perricone MD No Sun Tanner, $65, www.perriconemd.com

This vitamin D-rich formula gets high marks for giving a believable tan that looks like you’ve been sitting on the roof deck rather than in your bathroom slathering on self-tanner.
