La Prairie Multi-taskers Tackle Lips and Eyes

1 La Prairie
Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Contour Cream

La Prairie is taking an innovative approach to anti-aging this fall with two multi-tasking launches targeting eyes and lips. Skin surrounding these features is the most susceptible to environmental damage, La Prairie said, as well as the most prone to volume loss and wrinkle formation.

To address these areas, Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Contour Cream will arrive in September, a moisturizing formula to be applied morning and evening with a cooling wand. Containing a patented amino acid complex, it “fills” imperfections around the eye area, while an anti-discoloration complex and marine-derived glycosaminoglycans prevent darkness and puffiness.

Other key ingredients include tropical fruit extracts for exfoliation; kiwi, sophora and licorice root extract to inhibit melanin production; palm date seed extract to combat redness; antioxidant-rich olive fruit extract; and hydrating hyaluronic acid, shea butter, safflower seed oil, macadamia nut oil, avocado oil and sweet almond oil.

It is priced at $190.00 for 0.68 oz.

The chic and portable Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter will also arrive in September. An on-the-go compact housed in a white leatherette case, it features two compartments—one containing an eye cream-gel and the other containing a lip balm.

The eye product can be applied over foundation for touch-ups throughout the day, and contains line smoothers, light diffusers and marine and vegetal extracts to fight signs of aging. The lip balm can be applied over lipstick or as a night treatment, and contains essential plant oils, dehydrated hyaluronic acid microspheres, emollients and a hydrating complex.

It is priced at $150.00 for 0.5 oz.

Both new launches contain La Prairie’s exclusive Cellular Complex—the brand’s self-described “secret weapon” that has been included in almost every product launch since the company’s founding in 1978. Produced from biotechnological sources of glycoproteins, horsetail and ginseng extracts, it stimulates the skin’s natural renewal processes.

La Prairie is available at Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and
