Time doesn’t stand still, even for beauty product classics. First, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer became edgier and more protective in its 2013 version. Now, the French company Caudalie, whose spritz-style Beauty Elixir is a makeup artist paramour, especially during Fashion Week, received a fresh facelift from model-turned-designer L’Wren Scott in a Limited Edition bottle ($49).

The Elixir launched in 1996 as a coveted  hybrid: part serum and part toner. Everyone from catwalk regulars to actresses snapped up the mist, and 16 products have been sold each hour since the launch (that’s well over 2 million bottles). Given its popularity, why mess with the formulati
