If ever there was a time to implore the use of a $310 eye cream it would be now—the late nights surrounding New York fashion week have already begun at Style.com, and I can feel the bags forming as I gaze at my screen and type. Lucky for me I have Sisley’s newly launched Supremÿa Eye cream-serum in my corner this season. The little sister to the brand’s Supremÿa Nighttime anti-aging serum (which will set you back $775, making this product look practically like a bargain), it includes the same patented Phyto-Complex LC12—a blend of four botanical actives that doubles the lifespan of your cells and boosts their protection and repair capabilities. In addition, this formula boasts ingredients like acai extract, yeast extract, and caffeine to target dark circles and puffiness; oat kernel, soy, and brown algae extracts for treating sagging lids and crow’s-feet; and vegetal glycerin, plum kernel oil, and shea butter to soften delicate skin. And the gel-like texture doesn’t feel thick or gloppy, but melts into this stress-susceptible area almost instantaneously—allowing me to make the most of the little beauty rest I’ll actually get this month.
Sisley is mostly known for its incredibly lavish skincare lineup that’s bolstered by a little something called phytocosmetology, the science of fusing natural plant extracts into a range of balms, salves, and elixirs. Its incredibly nurturing and plumping Black Rose Cream Mask and the newly launched Eau Efficace, a pollution and makeup-removing cleansing water that softens skin with linden extract and purifies with desert date tree essence, are just a few of our personal favorites from the range. Lara Stone, on the other hand, prefers its Sisleya Global Anti-Aging Cream and the Confort Extreme Levres Nutritive Lip Balm; to each her own. It should be noted, however, that the Paris-based brand has an equally impressive color collection, which just got a little bigger with the launch of its Phyto Blush Eclat. The natural blush pigments are formulated with free radical-fighting rosehip and ginko biloba extracts as well as complexion-enhancing essences of gardenia and mallow. Available in five multi-hued iridescent shade combinations with interwoven pans of peach, pink, coral, berry, mauve, and rose colors, each micronized pigment palette comes housed in a super-cute zebra-stripe compact—with an extra long mirror. Talk about luxury.
When: Tuesday, January 19, through Saturday, January 30.
Where: Bergdorf Goodman, Beauty level, 754 Fifth Avenue at 58th Street, and online at www.bergdorfgoodman.com.
Why: A $200 initial purchase price is steep, but it’s kind of worth it seeing as how these are not your ordinary product minis. The snakeskin bag (which can double as a clutch) is packed with goodies from Amore Pacific, Bulgari, Kanebo Sensai, RéVive, Sisley Paris, and Tom Ford Beauty—in other words, all the brands that you’ve always been interested in trying before buying but still haven’t gotten around to sampling. Also, it provides an interesting keep-this-Web-page-open-on-your-S.O.’s-computer opportunity: With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to request a few items of the pricey perfume variety (like something from Acqua di Parma’s Le Nobili collection, perhaps) and make out with an additional gift as well. Yes, the word you’re looking for is “Score.”
