Got a hot date planned with your other half this Valentine’s Day? We’ve found the best (and newest) products that will get you prepped for the romantic occasion. Yep, we’re talking a sultry spritz, a dab of ‘I’m in love’ glowy highlighter a lip-softening mask and more.
CHANEL Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Warm Memories
If you’re usually someone who goes for a neutral smoky eye, try switching it up with a pink-based palette (such as this one from CHANEL) for Valentine’s Day. Soft coral, medium rose and dark burgundy work perfectly against green eyes, brown eyes *and* blue eyes.
Gucci Guilty Love Edition Pour Femme EDP
A fruity-floral scent is perfect for the season of love. Gucci’s latest fragrance has us falling head over heels with its composition: there’s bergamot and grapefruit in its top notes; violet, raspberry and jasmine make up its heart, and musk and amber base notes round it all out.
L’Artisan Parfumeur Tenebrae EDP
If you’re looking for something that’s a little more mysterious to spritz this Valentine’s Day, L’Artisan Parfumeur Tenebrae EDP fits the bill. Green notes like sap acord are muddled with resin and incense, and the finished drop is oriental and seriously alluring.
Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask
Soft lips are essential come V Day. One sure-fire way to look after the condition of your lips is with a lip mask like Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask. It’s supercharged with ingredients like Japanese peach extract to repair, rose to protect, and camellia oil to maintain hydration levels for long-lasting kissable lips.
Kristin Ess Scalp Detoxifying Bubble Mask
An easy way to guarantee yourself a good hair day come Valentine’s Day is with a scalp mask, such as Kristin Ess Scalp Detoxifying Bubble Mask. It’s an incredibly indulgent way to invigorate your scalp and give it a really deep cleanse to get rid of all that oil and product build-up that’s giving you lifeless strands.
Dior Lip Glow Oil in Pink
Lipsticks are striking, but they may deter your S.O. from going in for a kiss. Lip oils are the perfect compromise, keeping your smackers supple while adding a tiny bit of colour. The secret behind Dior Lip Glow Oil’s incredible formula is cherry oil, which is known to soften and protect lips from chapping.
La Mer The Glow Highlighter
The most luxurious way to up your luminosity this Valentine’s Day is with La Mer The Glow Highlighter, which is infused with the brand’s iconic Miracle Broth. Pat the cream onto your cheekbones and Cupid’s bow to highlight the area, then sweep some of the powdered blush onto your cheeks to accentuate them further and you’re good to glow.
