Valentine’s Day is celebrated as the holiday of love and friendship. But let’s not forget our first love: makeup. Treat your bae (or yourself) with something sweet this year, that will last longer than some candy or flowers. I put together a small gift guide full of Valentine’s-related beauty products with prices to fit any budget. Here are my faves:
LUSH – Sex Bomb Bath Bomb ($6.75):
Get romantic and relax with this best-selling bath bomb that’s packed with aphrodisiacs which (according to LUSH) will “relax you as they warm your heart, and other body parts too.” Ooh baby!
Iconic™ – House of Lashes® ($12):
Get that sultry eye look down with my favorite glam lashes, so you can give Ruby Rose’s infamous wink (below) a run for its money.
Forget the lace and corsets, these babies will make your lips the sexiest part of your body!
This list would not be complete without the perfect red lipstick. Ruby Woo is the perfect blue-red tone to make your pout sexy as can be, while also making your teeth appear whiter and brighter. It’s a win-win.
The name says it all. Melt has the coolest palettes, which are actually stacked and magnetic, which takes up way less space. The eye shadow pans are huge (almost the size of my palm!) and contain 3.57g of product (as opposed to a single eye shadow from MAC which contains 1.5g), so the price is justified. This one is perfect for Valentine’s Day, not only because of the name but because you’re able to create a range of looks ranging from sweet to bad ass.
Do we need a reason to glow? Come on now.
Wanna kiss your boo or talk and laugh with your girlfriends all night, without worrying about retouching? Here’s your answer. Thank me later!
This blush palette is the perfect way to summon your inner Hollaback Girl and achieve Gwen Stefani’s glowy, contoured signature look. With its beautiful packaging, and its cute “Magic’s in the Makeup” engraving, how can you not fall in love?
Minimize those flaws and brighten your skin with these high-end powder pearls. You’ll become an angel that slays way more that Cupid with these, I promise.
Who needs edible chocolate when you can have this chocolate-scented palette release all the endorphins that a bar of chocolate can? The little heart-shaped pans are also wayyyyyy cuter than those popular candy hearts.
Have a safe, fun, and makeup-filled Valentine’s Day! Don’t forget to check back for the rest of the Valentine’s Day posts!
