NARS Star Scene Cheek Palette
NARS Star Scene Cheek Palette ($56), part of the brand’s Studio 54-themed collection, includes two shades of blush – one candy pink and the other deep raspberry – and a champagne highlighter, all embossed with stars in a playful nod to the iconic NYC ’70s nightclub.
La Mer The Neck and Décolleté Concentrate
La Mer The Neck and Décolleté Concentrate ($350) is a silky protective balm that should be applied in an upward motion to address “tech neck,” the sagging that is the charming result of obsessively looking down and scrolling through your phone.
Dior Vernis in 999
The number nine was not only Christian Dior’s lucky number but also the shade name of his first red lipstick, which came out in 1953 and was soon followed by another shade called “99.” Today, they’ve been replaced by 999, a universal red that’s a tribute to both. Dior Vernis in 999 ($33) is the nail-polish version and will look excellent on almond-shaped nails against a glass of white.
Omorovicza Silver Skin Tonic
Omorovicza infuses its famous Hungarian thermal water with niacinamide, salicylic acid and antibacterial colloidal silver to make Silver Skin Tonic ($110), which somehow makes treating breakouts seem slightly elevated – if that’s even possible.
Shiseido Aura Dew in Lunar
Sweep Shiseido Aura Dew in Lunar ($38) over eyes for a light veil of shimmer – or pack it on anywhere else for extreme disco-ball sparkle if, er, that’s your thing.
Goldenland Rouge G Guerlain Case
An addition to the French brand Guerlain’s wide offering of customizable lipstick cases, the Goldenland Rouge G Guerlain Case in Merry Red ($21) is one of three new versions for the holidays.
