1. Nars Summer 2016 color collection
As a Francophile, I was instantly obsessed with Nars’s new collection. The fun packaging — artist Konstantin Kakanias’ illustrations of chic fashion babes vacationing in the South of France — captures the glam of the Riviera. And when you finally open up the boxes, you’ll find the perfect 10-piece edit of summer must-haves from blushes that give you a rosy sun-kissed glow ($45), to silky liquid lipsticks ($28) like the Lolita-approve orangey-red Do Not Disturb.

Apply one of the four jewel-toned Dual-Intensity Eye Shadows ($29) with a slightly wet brush to go from day to part-tay.
