Chanel Eye Cream
Chanel Le Lift Crème Yeux ($120) contains escin phytosomes, which are derived from horse chestnut, and a yeast extract to brighten dark circles and smooth out the inevitable creasing that results from squinting at the maddening headlines of 2020.
Storie Veneziane by Valmont Collezione Privata in Jazzy Twist ($380 for 100 mL) combines notes of patchouli, vanilla extract and tonka bean with magnolia and Madagascan black pepper to yield a satiny fragrance that’s also redolent of chocolate chips.
