    This delightfully shaped, very photogenic hand cream now comes in an anti-aging formula. Chanel Le Lift La Crème Main ($90) has licorice root extract to improve uneven skin tone and a bevy of hydrating ingredients.

    Giorgio Armani Sì Fiori Eau de Parfum Spray ($162 for 100 mL) is the third iteration of Sì and the most floral one yet. Neroli joins the fragrance’s signature fruity mandarin and blackcurrant notes, as do vanilla and white musk.

    The cap of L’Oréal Paris Flash Cat Eye by Infallible ($14) doubles as a stencil for winged-liner application for those of us who are not quite steady of hand.

    Beautycounter Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream ($93) contains bakuchiol, a buzzy plant-derived ingredient that’s been likened to retinol for its ability to stimulate cell turnover. While it’s less studied than its synthetic counterpart, it’s super-gentle, which will appeal to anyone with sensitive skin.

    Clarins has partnered with French brand The Kooples for two limited-edition lip oils in glossy berry and pink hues. (Don’t let the glitter scare you—it reads as “luminous,” not “tween.”) We love the doe-foot applicator, which feels like velvet. Clarins x The Kooples Lip Comfort Oil in Dark Stone and Light Stone ($25 each).
