Envy This
Green doesn’t have to mean crunchy…these days, it can mean straight up glamour. Take Nvey – the eco-friendly line of makeup is certified organic yet delivers effective formulas and bold color. Founded in Australia, the collection hit the States in 2006 and with the current green frenzy, they won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Try the Organic Crème Deluxe Foundation – the full coverage finish is tempered with antioxidant vitamin C, E & A to protect the skin from free radicals. Available at www.econveybeauty.com.

Gellin’
Impossible-to-beat shine? Check. A sheer wash of color? Check. Vincent Longo’s new Gelli Glosses have all we’re looking for this summer. The new lippies are available in three versatile shades, Aria (Apricot), Vela (Pink) and Vela (Purple) that are sheer enough to work with any skin tone. Get glossy at Sephora stores or www.sephora.com.

Quick Time
Bobbi Brown’s a busy woman. So, it makes sense that her Spring-Summer 2008 collection focuses on getting a gorgeous Quick Face. The new Long-Wear Cream Shadows come in the expected palette of neutrals (there’s a brown for every woman) and last all day without creasing or wearing off. Visit department stores or www.saksfifthavenue.com to purchase.

Kiss Bliss
Two of our favorite beauty brands – tarte and BriteSmile – have teamed up to create embrightenmint. This clever dual ended click pen dispenses a minty and pigmented pink or red gloss on one end and BriteSmile’s signature tooth whitening formula on the other. As a bonus, the glosses boast blue undertones to make your pearly whites appear even brighter. Kiss your way to a brighter smile via www.tartecosmetics.com.

Back in Black
Who knew? Calvin Klein quietly relaunched his signature blend of makeup early this year after a few years off. The modern range includes everything you’d expect including the your lashes-but-better True Lustre Lengthening Mascara. This glossy and sleek black tube is minimalist in that oh-so-CK way and the nourishing formula is long lasting but removes easily with water. Exclusively at Sephora and www.sephora.com.

In the Blender
Sonia Kashuk took a page from Beauty Blender’s book (shhh!) with the introduction of her new Blending Sponge. This ergonomically designed blue sponge is comprised of HZC non-latex foam and squeezes into various shapes to reach awkward spots like the nasal folds. You’ll wonder how you ever applied foundation without it. Available at Target stores or via www.target.com.

8 Glasses+
Yes, it IS just a can of water. But, somehow, inexplicably, it’s SO much more. Evian’s newly redesigned Brumisateur facial spray is the perfect midday pick me up. Stash one at your desk, in your purse or in your car and spritz, spritz, spritz your way to refreshment. The spray is mineral rich, cooling and relaxing…and no, it won’t disturb your mascara or blush. In fact, the fine mist serves to set makeup after application. Get yours via www.drugstore.com.
