Out to Dry

Dar­lings, it’s a wa­ter­less sheet mask that leaves no goop be­hind.

Makeup artist CHAR­LOTTE TIL­BURY ar­rived at the pent­house suite of The Stan­dard ho­tel in New York City’s East Vil­lage wear­ing form-fit­ting pink mono­grammed silk py­ja­mas—the same ones that 30 or so beauty edi­tors were gifted upon ar­rival—ready to host one hell of a sleep­over. From a screen­ing of Some Like It Hot to a pop­corn ma­chine to dat­ing ad­vice dished out by the plat­form-heel-tee­ter­ing Til­bury her­self (OH: “Ev­ery­one needs to have a slutty phase”), this was a hang­out of epic pro­por­tions. But it wasn’t just pil­lows and gig­gles; we had gath­ered for a preview of her multi-use In­stant Magic Fa­cial Dry Sheet Mask ($27). You put the sheet on, se­cur­ing it with loops around your ears, and the heat cre­ated by mas­sag­ing your face for a few sec­onds re­leases the ac­tives. That’s when mi­cro-vec­tors—tiny bub­bles that can pen­e­trate the epi­der­mis—get to work, de­liv­er­ing 85 per cent ac­tive in­gre­di­ents. “With wet masks [where water is the main in­gre­di­ent], you only get two to three per cent,” says Karine Théberge, founder of Biomod, the Cana­dian lab be­hind the in­no­va­tion. “I’m al­ways look­ing for break­through tech­nol­ogy,” says Til­bury, who is a self-pro­fessed multi-tasker. “I’ve worn it in the back of taxis, while do­ing my work and in of­fice meet­ings.”

TIL­BURY USED HER DRY MASK TO PREP NI­COLE KID­MAN’S SKIN FOR THE GOLDEN GLOBES.
