Best Summer Beauty Buys

Tandem Acts
Lancôme Génifique, $78, doesn't want to replace your skincare faves; it strives to make them work better. The superbly light formula fires up "youth proteins" in skin that prevent dullness and make it more receptive to other moisturizers. Hello, baby face.

Precious Pucker
Talk about a million-dollar smile: Housed in a case designed by haute Parisian jeweler Lorenz Bäumer, Guerlain's Rouge G lipstick, $45, boasts crushed ruby powder and liquefied mother of pearl.

Super Salve
Since its launch in 1930, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream has cured countless cracked cuticles and parched lips, and glossed up endless eyelashes and lids. (I have yet to meet a makeup artist without a tube in her kit.) So how do you make the cult classic even better? Add sunscreen. Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense for Face SPF 50, $30.

Brush with Genius
I adore this blowout tool with a twist: Held with the slimmer side out, Sam Villa's Signature Series oval-handle brush, $24, provides the root-volumizing might of a round brush; turned to the wider side, it straightens like the flat-paddle variety.
