Instead of Roses... Beauty Gifts for Valentine's Day ♥

by Joyce in


I've never been one for flowers - yes, they are pretty and I do like getting them, but I'm one of those girls who can't even manage to properly put them in a vase. And even if I manage to put them in a vase before it is too late, flowers don't last forever. Products do! (Sort of.) 

I'm all for a beauty gift that I can use everyday, so I've put together this collection of pink and rose themed items that have been on my radar lately. I think they're the perfect Valentine's Day gift(s) to brighten your favorite gal pal's day, or perhaps you just have to leave this list around for your significant other to see...

Diptyque Rosamundi Candle
Diptyque's limited edition re-release for Valentine's Day is seriously dreamy. Blended to smell like my favorite Diptyque Eau Rose perfume, Rosamundi is a seriously pretty candle that I'm going to savor to the last drop.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta
Any fan of new beauty releases will be excited to find this new Hourglass offering in her Valentine's gift. Radiant Magenta isn't quite as magenta as I hoped, and while my first impressions aren't out of this world, it IS a nice blush. (Full review of this and Diffused Heat coming soon.)  

Dior Addict Lip Gloss in Exquise
For the girl that loves pink, you can't go wrong with this pretty pink gloss from Dior's spring collection. Click here to read my review! 

Boscia Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask
I was drawn in by the packaging but I am just loving this overnight hydration mask from Boscia. Everyone needs a little extra hydration with that cold weather we've been having!

Nars Velvet Gloss Pencil in Mexican Rose & Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg
These little pencils have been siting in my stash a while until I discovered how gorgeous they are worn together! Mexican Rose brings a bit of gloss and moisture to the satiny Luxembourg. And that they're close in color make it the perfect pair! But if you can't have both and you want fully opaque fucshia-red, go for the Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg! 

Lush Love Locket Bath Bomb*
This huge Lush bath bomb smells a whole lot like classic Lush scents to me - full of jasmine, neroli and vanilla. Break it up for use in up to 3 baths! This bomb has paper hearts in the outer layer and red hearts in the center, and its luxurious oils make this bath quite comforting!  

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick in Fuschia Irresistible
I've been eyeing the Le Rouge lineup for quite some time and could never settle on the shade. Right around the time that Tiffany posted about her love for this lipstick, I decided to make up my mind already and go with this one! I think it may just be the perfect fuschia red (and surprisingly not terribly different from the limited edition Tom Ford Aphrodisiac) that is creamy, long-wearing, and just perfectly lovely. Plus, I can't get enough of the leather embossed packaging and that cute little accent stud! 

Lush The Kiss Lip Gloss*
This vegan lip gloss is full of moisturizing ingredients - agave syrup, mandarin oil, and almond oil - that create a creamy almost whipped texture. It isn't too high shine, and even has a natural lip plumper in it! Now I can't say if the lip plumper works (I didn't even realize that was a feature until just now!) but I love how this lip gloss is a much better version of cherry Chapstick! 

Balenciaga Rosabotanica (deluxe sample)
When I saw this, I snatched up this mini of Rosabotanica (thanks to Gummy!) in a newly released Sephora 500 point perk which is currently available online at Sephora. I am loving this new scent, a more rosy Florabotanica with such a fresh and clean drydown that I can't get enough of.

What do you guys think about this selection of pink and rose themed products? Are any of these on your wish list? I'd love to know! :)
