3. Glossier- The Makeup Set
Glossier has been revolutionizing how we see and use makeup since it began in 2012. We have stopped reaching for foundation, and head for tinted moisturizers. Less has really become more.

4. Essie Gel Couture - Sunset Soiree
We all know the struggle of a freshly-painted finger or toe chipping the day after you get your nails done. However, gel or acrylic nails are often too expensive and extremely damaging to your nails. Essie's Gel Couture line of polishes is here to change the game. These polishes apply just like normal nail polish, but leave a gel-like finish and last for days. "Sunset Soiree" is a perfect summer color that is bright without being too neon; it is a flattering coral color that suits all skin tones! You can enjoy this color without worrying that it will chip anytime soon.
5. Olive and June- The Poppy
Maybe you love that Essie nail polish, but are terrible at applying! One hand always turns out better than the other, and you're left scraping excess polish off your hands. Thankfully, Olive and June thought about this. The Poppy is a handle that attaches to your polish battle that makes the at-home manicure process even easier. It gives you more control while applying, and leaves your manicure looking like it was professionally applied. Doing your own nails just became less of a chore and way more enjoyable.

This kit includes a handle, 2 5-blade cartridges, and a magnetic handle that will keep your razor secure wherever you leave it. You also have the choice to get new blades delivered every month.
