Make this a Valentine’s Day to remember. Whether you’re looking for a gift for the beauty lover in your life, or just want to treat yo’self, there are tons of beauty goodies to choose from this year. Keep reading for our Valentine’s Day beauty gift guide, from a one-of-a-kind highlighter that needs to be seen to be believed to an irresistible lippie-and-chocolate set.
Lancome Blush La Rose: This absolutely gorgeous highlighter has been the talk of the beauty sphere the past month, and it’s clear to see why. Have you ever seen a product quite like this?! The case holds a light pink rose sprinkled with shimmery loose highlighting powder. It’s almost too pretty to use, but if you dare, use a kabuki brush to pick up some product and sweep it onto the high points of your face. This would be an unforgettable Valentine’s treat that could stay on your vanity for years to come. ($60)
YSL The Street & I Face Palette: There’s nothing better than a good pun, so the packaging alone makes this YSL compact a winner. Encased inside is a beautiful orange blush that will flatter nearly every skin tone. Orange blushes, when dusted on lightly, can work with almost any makeup style: from dramatic smoky eyes to a no-makeup-makeup look. You can also build it up on your cheeks for a more intense effect. ($47)
Diptyque Limited Edition Rosa Mundi Candle: Every Valentine’s Day, Diptyque releases a limited edition version of their Rosa Mundi candle. This year’s candle was created in collaboration with artist Antoinette Poisson. The floral design is both sweet and romantic, while the scent is an incredibly rich and dreamy mix of two roses: Damascana and Centifolia. Start a collection – pick up the new iteration of this candle every year. ($68)
Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in 999: Rumor has it models wore this iconic red shade during Dior’s first runway show, all the way back in 1947. Ever since, it’s been a quintessential red in the beauty world. From the luxe packaging to the eye-catching shade of crimson, it encapsulates everything a red lipstick should be. Confident, bold and sexy – a perfect little Valentine’s gift. ($35)
ColourPop Pressed Powder Eye Duo in Boyfriend Stealer: ColourPop is consistently rolling out fresh, new products, but they’ve really stepped it up for Valentine’s Day. The Love Collection features tons of Valentine’s-themed mini sets and individual products, including this pressed powder duo. It includes a matte dusty rose and a matte berry mauve with little gold flecks. These buttery shadows will create an impactful, sultry look perfect for date night. ($10)
ColourPop Mini Size Kit in Short and Sweet: There are so many fun new picks from ColourPop, we couldn’t resist including one of the lippie options, as well. This set of minis feature five liquid lipsticks: two Ultra Satins, two Ultra Mattes and an Ultra Glossy Lip. With a wide array of shades, from a pastel pink to a bright pinky-red, there’s something to complement every mood and look. ($18)
Farmacy Sweet Lips Gift Set: Who can resist chocolate on Valentine’s Day?! This set from Farmacy will put a smile on anyone’s face. The set features three of the brand’s beloved Lip Blooms – ultra-hydrating balms that smell unbelievable (seriously, if you don’t have one of these yet, grab one ASAP) – with a corresponding chocolate bar. A lavender mint chocolate bar for the Lavender Mint Lip Bloom; ditto for strawberry basil and apple rosemary. Too cute. ($48)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette: This palette has been around for a few months now, but you would think it was made specifically for Valentine’s Day! An array of stunning neutrals, pinks and reds, this warm-toned collection of buttery shadows is perfect for crafting a romantic eye look. Use the neutrals for a classic subtle eye, or get creative with the rust and cranberry shades. ($42)
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose: The warm and seductive scent of Elizabeth & James’ Nirvana Rose is the perfect thing to set the Valentine’s Day mood. A unique blend of florals, this perfume (like every other one from Elizabeth and James) is a winner. The sleek, scarlet-hued bottle only adds to the charm. ($85)
NARS NARSissist Unfiltered Cheek Palette: NARS is well-known for their super-pigmented, long-lasting blushes, so this set is a dream come true for any beauty lover. It features six giant pans of both warm and cool-toned blushes – something to complement every look. Encased in a beautiful mirrored compact, it’s also a fantastic option to bring when traveling.
