Laqa&Co. Gold Fleck Manicure Pen, $16
The two-sided pen applicator means catering to your artistic side doesn't result in major spillage. And that print-happy box it comes in? It's literally a work of art: each one is designed by an up-and-coming artist.
Blink And They're Gone
Paul & Joe Beaute Spring 2014 Cases, $10
These limited edition, completely customizable compacts are inspired by Paul & Joe's Spring 2014 collection. The kitty print might just be the cutest thing to ever grace your makeup bag.
Three's A Charm
Korres Luxury Body Butter trio, $39
What's the only thing better than a luxe body butter swathed in a photorealistic floral tube? 3 luxe body butters swathed in 3 different photorealistic floral tubes, that's what.
The Golden Ticket
Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Enhancer, $95
This gemstone-inspired compact -- containing a luminescent highlighting powder -- is almost too gorgeous to use. Almost.
Make New Medieval Palette, $40
