Flowers and chocolates are nice, but any true beauty addict would love to receive a shiny new palette over roses any day. Check out our Valentine’s Day beauty gift guide…and send it over to your loved one to give them a not-so-subtle hint about what you really want this year!
If you love gray polishes (my favorite for the winter), this 50 Shades x OPI set is definitely for you. It includes a mini-bottle of all six shades from the collection, including different shades of silver and gray, plus a glam red. ($22)
On a major Fifty Shades kick? Check out the beautiful Make Up For Ever ‘Give In To Me’ Makeup Kit. Inspired by the movie, it includes 4 Artist Shadows, an eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and lip gloss, all enclosed in a gorgeous keepsake box. Make sure to head over to Pampadour to enter our #XOXO giveaway – one lucky user will win this kit! ($79)
What’s ever sweeter than chocolate? Palettes! Too Faced’s delectable Chocolate Bar and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palettes are stunning, versatile, neutral shadow palettes. Did you know they actually have a light scent of cocoa? A guilt-free treat. ($49 each)
Have you tried ColourPop shadows yet? If not, what are you waiting for?! These shadows are unlike you’ve ever tried before – unique colors, stellar quality, easy to use and last for hours without creasing. On top of all that, they are only five dollars a piece. Give the limited edition Not A Box Of Chocolates set a try. It includes six versatile, gorgeous shadows, ranging from metallic to pearl to matte. ($30)
Perfume is a very personal item. It reacts differently on everyone’s skin, but Prada’s Candy Gift Set is universally appealing. That packaging is pretty irresistible! With white musk, benzoin and a hint of caramel, this unique fragrance is undeniably seductive – perfect for V-Day. ($88)
Every month lipstick masters Bite Beauty release an exclusive, limited edition lipstick at Sephora. February’s offering, Japanese Eggplant, is a gorgeous, creamy purple-pink. In addition to the wide range of colors, the quality of Bite lipsticks is unparalleled. Goes on so smoothly and evenly, lasts for hours and it doesn’t feel dry at all. ($36)
There’s no time like Valentine’s Day to splurge a little. Charlotte Tilbury launched in the US just a few months ago, but it’s already made a lasting impression. The K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick line has made a splash, in particular. This adorable mini-set of three of the most popular shades is a must-have. The tiny bullets are ideal for keeping in your evening bag, so touch-ups are a breeze. ($39)
A Clarisonic might not seem like the most romantic gift in the world, but this lips & lashes-covered Mia 3 is pretty cute. The Mia is a powerful makeup remover that removes even the most stubborn products, while cleansing your skin. ($199)
Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmers pack a lot of color in a nourishing, hydrating balm. This adorable, little set contains three Lip Shimmer shades: Apricot, Grapefruit and Watermelon. It’s a small gift that lets someone know you’re thinking of them – like a Valentine’s Day stocking stuffer. ($10)
This Valentine’s-themed Strawberry Gift Set by The Body Shop set includes a heart-shaped soap, hand cream, body butter and even eau de toilette. Nothing’s quite as enjoyable as an at-home spa treatment, and at $30, this is an amazing value. ($30)
