LANCÔME GÉNIFIQUE EYE LIGHT-PEARL, $68.

WHY THE JURY CHOSE IT: 

The antiaging serum softens fine lines and wrinkles, while the cooling stainless-steel tip increases circulation and de-puffs for bright, well-rested eyes.

WHAT THE JURY SAYS: 

"This luxurious product wakes up the eye area and diminishes dark circles and bags. The application and texture are so indulgent!"

"A super-serum that brightens the eyes? Yes, please! And we love the little pearl at the end of the wand, which slips around the eye's nooks and crannies to massage, refresh, and gently drain excess fluid. A real gem."

"A beguiling eye treatment and—thanks to the unique wand—a new and very addictive application method."

"Light-Pearl or nothing! The tip, surrounded by surgical-grade stainless steel, functions in tan-dem with the antiaging formula to lead the way for a new generation of applicators. Finally, a product that recognizes how an expert massage can give the skin an indispensable boost."
