Molded to look like real life cigars, Godiva has transformed this masculine item into a delicious, pure milk chocolate dessert–now that’s what I’m talking about! Read the rest of this entry »

WHAT: Lancôme Teint Miracle ($44).

WHY: You know if Kate Middelton used this on her wedding day to give her already flawless skin a beautiful boost that it must be a killer foundation.

Because it’s consistency is so whisper-light, it can be expertly layered to give skin more coverage where needed without looking heavy or oily. Bonus: it’s available in 20 shades, one to suit every skin tone.
