Get excited! This April, Nars is launching Exotica, its Summer 2008 color collection. The safari-chic line includes eight earth-toned items. Yesterday afternoon, I was lucky enough to get an exclusive first peek at everything, and by far my favorite product is a single sparkling gold-and-chocolate powder eye shadow called Galapagos ($21).
