I think I may have mentioned Valentine’s Day is probably my favorite holiday?! And I love that the definition has expanded to cover other meaningful relationships – from a best friend, a mom or a daughter! And for all the beauty girls out there I have a few gift ideas – things I’ll be giving, things I’d love to get and a few things you might want to pick up for yourself! I know self care is a big buzz word right now but it’s always been true that the relationship you have with yourself is one of the most important, and worth cultivating!
For the foodie:
Farmacy Beauty’s Strawberry Basil Lip Bloom with their signature Echinacea GreenEnvy™ gets lips in kissable form and smells delicious! It’s the perfect combination of sweet + green that will instantly transport you back to summer. For Valentine’s Day they created a gorgeous set with three of lip blooms and matching flavored virgin chocolate bar (babe, if you’re reading this I want that!!!)
For your Galentine (and candle lover!)
Who wouldn’t want to open Diptyque’s newest scented candle, Rosa Mundi wrapped in an exclusive floral pattern and a fragrances created by combining two precious roses; Damascena, the Damask rose, and Centifolia, the May rose with top notes of lychee, geranium, currant and bergamot.
For the minimalist
For the girl who cares as much about the packaging as what it does iliah b’s divine duo lip & cheek (shown here in b daring) checks all her boxes! These beautiful compacts slide open to reveal color that goes on smoothly for a sheer hint of color that can be built into something more intense and its equally lovely on lips or cheeks paring down the number of products she needs.
For the natural beauty
I love to gift things I truly love and use and Axiology lipsticks are something I know the receiver will love. These clean lipsticks are 100% natural, vegan, organic and formulated with nourishing ingredients, but they all perform incredibly well with soft creamy textures, a wide range of shades and long-lasting formulations.
For the friend with a wild side (and a sweet side!)
Kari Gran’s Lip Whips are a cult lipcare product and I’ve long been a fan and user of the radiant tinted shade (a sweet pink shade shown above!) a great everyday shade but they also come in some intense and very cool deeper tones from rich browns to deep cherries and a classic true red – suji red – my pick for Valentine’s Day!
