Cupid called; he wants his arrows back — and only in exchange for some killer Valentine’s Day beauty buys. In all seriousness though, while we’d never trade in those *arrows,* there are a few beauty products that have us tempted. That’s why we rounded up the best Valentine’s Day gifts for your beauty-loving significant other, or, to treat yo-self on this day of looooove.
Probably the sweetest gift of the bunch, this Rose Delight candle by Diptyque has us feelin’ some type of way. It’s powdery fresh, soft, rosy and inspired by Turkish Delight. Even better, it’ll make for a gorgeous V-Day ‘gram.
Inspired by the heat of the concrete jungle, this Maybelline Python Lip Kit in Passionate is a perfect addition to any bouquet and chocolates. Depending on your Valentine’s day mood, you can create a classic sultry red lip with the first color of the kit — or add some deep rose gold metallic shine overtop.
Another smooch-approved V-Day gift that isn’t for the faint-hearted: these new Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipsticks. Complete with a slick red tube and creamy pigmentation, they’re sure to keep you smudge free all evening long.
You simply can’t complete a Valentine’s gift without including some real-life roses — and that’s where Venus Et Fleur comes in. Not only do these arrangements smell totally glorious, they’re the perfect addition to any work desk or bedroom decor because they last a whole year.
To bring that Valentine’s day love down to the fingertips, the YSL Red Light glitter polish is the lacquer of your significant other’s dreams. Its iridescent and sparkling qualities will really give the classic red mani a run for its money — and it captures the dreamy Valentine’s Day beauty look your special guy or girl has always searched for 😘.
