Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50 Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50
View Gallery

Perhaps you've indulged your annual derm appointment already this spring, perhaps not. At any rate, a very sun-damaged Chic is already scared senseless by those pesky and harmful UVAs (to say nothing of the UVBs!). Luckily, we can now brave daylight without the constant threat of even more sun spots, thanks to Kiehl's. The brand's new Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ daily facial moisturizer is super-lightweight, oil-free, water-resistant, and translucent. When you shake the bottle before use, the energy-activated emulsifers combine to make a penetrating flud that leaves no apparent residue, so when you apply makeup, it appears perfectly smooth. And due to its special formula, this broad-spectrum maintains protection over time, unlike the greasy drugstore stuff. Can we order in bulk? THE DETAILS: $32, Kiehls.com

Sometimes we just need to lay back, relax, put on our headphones and tune out the chaos of the day. The latest addition to Chic’s iPod? The National’s newest album, High Violet, which was just released last Tuesday. Luckily for us, American Express presented a special concert with The National on Saturday in celebration of the ZYNC Card Launch. Guests including Julia Stiles, Kate Walsh and Zach Quinto trekked out to the Brooklyn Academy of Music to enjoy a laid-back, musical evening. What’s more, all proceeds from the celebration will benefit the Red Hot organization, a charity dedicated to fighting AIDS worldwide.

It seems like all our favorite chicsters have gotten behind the Proper Attire craze and designed special edition condoms benefitting Planned Parenthood. The latest designer to join the ranks of Brian Reyes, Yigal Azrouel and Alexander Wang? No surprise here: Jeremy Scott. Condoms in snazzy, animal print packaging seem just up his alley. Choose from three: dots, sheer or ribbed. THE DETAILS: Moca Store, $5.99

Sleight of Hand

David Blaine David Blaine

Mario Sorrenti captured another side of illusionist David Blaine for the May 2010 issue of Interview. Sprinkling a deck of cards over the city, clad in a leather straightjacket or masked by a plastic baggie, Sorrenti placed Blaine in a series of magician-esque situations that the skilled artist always manages to get himself out of, but something about these tricks look decidedly darker, tougher and all together chicer.

Tipsheets Gone Wild!

We've heard of optimistic tipsheets, but this is ridiculous. Chic received an invite for tomorrow's Art for SPC event at Milk Gallery, hosted by Cindy Sherman and the Stephen Petronio Company, complete with a list of expected guests including Lucy Liu, Yoko Ono, Annie Liebovitz, Patti Smith, Louise Bourgeois, and... Andy Warhol? Yes, the late artist is included on the "WHO" lineup. A little sleuthing reveals that Warhol's work will be up for auction at the event (which may explain the name-drop)---but we'd still be very surprised if he makes an appearance tomorrow at Milk...
