Skip the Chocolate: Here’s 7 Valentine’s Day Beauty Gifts You Should Get Instead

Valentine’s Day is coming up. Save the chocolate, flowers, and teddy bears and let’s talk about what’s actually important: the latest drops in beauty. Here’s a list of what’s new this year and why you should convince your significant other to pick these up instead!

1. Hudabeauty Contour & Strobe Lip Set

Hudabeauty is the queen of Instagram beauty and all things lips. If you’ve been sleeping under a rock, it’s time to wake up because these Hudabeauty Contour & Strobe Lip sets are here! Each limited edition set comes with a lip liner, mini liquid lipstick and mini lip strobe perfect for date night!

2. Fresh Sweet as Sugar Minis

If your lips are going through a rough patch like mine, this set is literally heaven sent from above. The Fresh Sweet as Sugars comes with 5 different shades of mini lip treatments that is great for every look you’re going to rock this year.

3. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

This mask dropped recently and it is all I want in a mask. Not only is the packaging boujee (and comes with a mini spoon), it has awesome ingredients like Hyaluronic acid and AHAs to help gently clarify and hydrate your skin. And did I tell you that it smells like Watermelon?! Win-win.

4. Black Opium Hair Mist

If you love the original Black Opium perfume, you are absolutely going to jump out of your hair when you hear about this. Yves Saint Laurent just dropped the Black Opium Hair Mist. Yes, you read that right. Now you can smell amazing on both body and hair. Can I get an amen!?

5. NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette

Nars makes the best eyeshadows out there and this palette is definitely not an exception. This palette is the perfect valentine’s palette because it comes with all the shades you need (neutrals, pinks, red, black). Plus, there is a twist to this palette because it comes with a unique bronze color called “Fallen Star” that is bold and different.

6. J Goldcrown for Sephora Collection

If you want to get really festive for V-Day, Sephora collaborated with James Goldcrown to bring his Bleeding Hearts murals to life.

The limited edition collaboration comes with a few items and features the Bleeding Hearts Brush “The Universalist” Set and 2 different cute organizers;”The Overpacker” (why is that SO ME) and “The Minimalist”. My personal favorite is the Bleeding Hearts Sponge Set, where the sponges are shaped like hearts that you can pull apart! <3

7. BOSCIA Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask

I love peel off masks because they are so satisfying to apply and peel off! I was so thrilled when I saw this mask at Sephora because it’s literally the most Valentine’s Day you can get. The Boscia Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask has activated black charcoal mask to help detoxify and brighten the skin. Plus its pink, so its aka AMAZING.

8. Coffee Scrubs

Coffee is one of my favorite drinks in the world, so coffee scrubs (of course) are one of my favorites. Coffee scrubs are great for exfoliating dead skin off your body and is a great prep for lotion and self-tanning. These can get a little messy, so make sure you do this well in advance if you have a big night coming up. My favorites are Bean Body Coconut Coffee Scrub and Frank Body Cacao Coffee Scrub.

At the end of the day, the material stuff doesn’t matter as long as you are spending Valentine’s Day with the ones that truly matter. Whether it’s with family, friends, or with your significant other, I hope you have a great one!

Did any of these beauty items make it to your Valentine’s Day list? For me it was basically all of them LOL. But I am definitely picking out that Black Opium hair spray ASAP.
