Kim Kardashian’s 20.5 carat ring has been all the celebrity engagement buzz for the last week, but did she buy it herself? That is also the buzz. That fiancé Kris Humphries did not in fact choose it and buy it for her, but rather the sizeable bauble was something Kim had in stock since 2009 and obtained it during her courtship with NFL-er Reggie White—if he popped the question, she had the perfect ring at the ready. At this point of course, all of this is speculation about Kim K’s two million dollar sparkler, but it would not be the first time we’ve heard of famous ladies springing for their own bling. Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears did exactly the same. What are you thoughts on buying your own ring? Do? Don’t? Not even a consideration? Maybe because you share funds with your mister anyway?

WHAT: Estée Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator ($73).
WHY: I have been a religious user of Lauder’s original Idealist since it launched some years back, but now they have kicked this pore-minimizing, skin-boosting serum up a notch with this new miracle formula that helps further perfect the look of skin. Apply Idealist under your moisturizer day and night and watch your skintone brighten and lighten. Idealist helps reduce dark spots caused by acne, sun, age and any redness in the skin to give it a glowy, even tone. It also works quickly, taking as little as two weeks to see results. I’ve been using it for just over 10 days and already notice a huge difference. Get some!
