LOVE - Products for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is almost upon us again! The day that has lovers rejoicing and singles hating the world. For me Valentine's Day is just another day - Yup I am single #foreveralone. Therefore no special plans for me which doesn't really bother me. I am sure all of you that are in love are excited for tomorrow. Yes?

PS. Look at that MAC Lipstick heart! My true love x Haha!

As I did last year, I have again curated a selection of products that I think are perfect for Valentine's Day. Whether it is the name, the shade or the actual product I think all of the following would be great to use on Valentine's Day.

Last years edition (HERE) was more suited to a sexy Valentine's Day celebration whereas this years is perfect for a soft and sweet Valentine look. 

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette 
The shadows in the Naked3 Palette are perfect for a soft and pretty eye look. The Naked3 Palette features lots of pretty pink and soft gold shades. You can create a lovely, soft look that is perfect for a romantic evening with your love or lazing on the couch watching Reign (my new favourite show - it is freaking awesome). 

Too Faced Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow
This blush got a place in this blog post because of its heart shape which is pretty much the universal sign of love and therefore Valentine's Day. This blush gives a really lovely glowing flush of colour to the cheeks. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 55 Romance
Romance is a beautiful medium pink. This lipstick is a great low maintenance option with good moisturising properties. This would look great paired with a golden pink eye look created using Naked3. The name of this lipstick is just perfect for Valentine's Day - the day for Romance. 

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine
Okay, so this pretty much made the list just for the name. I mean Sex Machine! How inappropriately appropriate for Valentine's Day?! Sex Machine is a matte nude pink. 

Lanolips 101 Ointment
I have only just gotten on to the Lanolips train but so fair it has been a lovely ride. This balm is fantastic for dry and cracked lips. Perfect to use before and after all that kissing some will be doing on Valentine's Day. 

Essie Nail Colour in 740 French Affair
Last years post included a bright red nail polish which really suited the more sexy theme. French Affair perfectly suits a soft and pretty look. It is a pastel pink polish with a tinge of purple. Very pretty. 

Marc Jacobs Honey EDP*
Whilst spending Valentine's Day with your Honey you can wear Honey. If you are rocking a sweet and pretty look (as you would be if using the products mentioned above) you need a scent to match. Honey is that scent - sweet and soft with the honey providing a little warmth. 

That is my products for Valentine's Day 2014 edition. Forgive me for overuse of the words sweet and soft in this post! I hope all those celebrating Valentine's Day have a lovely (hehe lovely on the day for love) time with their special someone. I shall continue to watch Reign. Seriously. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
What products do you think of when considering Valentine's Day?

Products marked with an aserik (*) were provided for consideration for review, this has not affected my review - honesty always. 


  1. Naked 3 seems like the perfect eyeshadow palette for V-day! Such romantic shades! Ahaha, Nars certainly has a few inappropriately named products that are on the opposite of "sweet and soft" for valentines day haha :)

    Tasha // shiwashiful.

    1. Haha! Yes, the name is not appropriate but the colour is :)
      I think part of why Nars is a cult brand is the quirky names, I know I love them..

  2. love your blog!
