This Bud’s for You
Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Treatment (left) is a monthlong boot camp for the complexion. Four vials aim to fight lines and age spots during the skin’s 28-day renewal cycle with increasingly potent concentrations of orchid root extracts, from blooms grown in Asia and, bien sûr, France. $1,500; at Bergdorf Goodman.
Simply Ageless Foundation’s swirly disk (right) calls to mind penny candy, but the compact, a collaboration between CoverGirl and Olay, is for a more mature audience. The makeup base conceals imperfections without settling into—and exaggerating the look of—wrinkles. The hydrating formula also promotes collagen production with the same combination of vitamins B and E that powers Olay’s best-selling Regenerist line. $14; at drugstores.
Luxe leather-goods house Coach is unveiling an unexpected line of accessories this winter. The Legacy Lipstick Collection (left) features six tubes decorated with the brand’s trademark cheery striped print, along with pretty, wearable rose and tan lip colors with mouthwatering monikers like Toffee, Spice and Pink Grapefruit (shown here). $28 each; coach.com
Once popular skin-lightening agent hydroquinone has come under scrutiny as a possible carcinogen, leaving beauty companies scrambling for alternatives. Thankfully, Zelens Skin Science Advanced Luminescence Serum (right) promises to even skin tone with vitamin C, which is also said to encourage collagen production. Vitamin E provides antioxidant protection, and licorice extract helps reduce the appearance of acne scars. $180; spacenk.com
