Best Bet: Petal Power


The holiday season always brings a flurry of attractive giftables, so whether you're beauty shopping for yourself or others, start with Chantecaille. Sylvie and Olivia always manage to create the prettiest products, and their latest is no different. Les Pétales is a collection of sweet, petal-shaped compacts filled with lip gloss (Rêve de Rose), face highlighter (Lumiére de Rose), and translucent powder (Voile de Rose). The gloss adds the slightest hint of color, the powder manages to leave ALL complexions with a smooth, non-chalky finish, and the highlighter leaves lids and cheeks with a perfect pearly glow. The gloss is in-store now, but get a head start and preorder the highlighter and powder before the rush.

$36 each at Bergdorf Goodman, 754 Fifth Ave., at 58th St.; 212-872-2725.
