Love comes in many forms. For some it’s a romantic kind of love that you share with a significant, for others it’s loving and accepting oneself. Valentine’s Day has always been associated with lovey-dovey couples and grand gestures, but this year, feel free to show a little love for yourself. If you are a beauty lover like we are, Valentine’s Day makes for the perfect excuse to treat ourselves and our girlfriends to a little something—limited edition collections and… anything pink really. We’ve listed all the beauty things we would love to receive for Valentine’s Day.
So whether you’d like to give your significant other a not-so-subtle hint or are thinking of getting yourself a little gift, scroll down to check out our top beauty picks:
YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture, S$52
Who can resist a show-stopping red lippie? YSL Beauty has released four brand new shades of red in their iconic rouge pur couture line in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Aptly called the Love Shades collection, the satin-finish lipsticks feature ‘LOVE’ emblazoned on the gold cases with two scarlet snakes creating a heart shape, a must-have for any makeup collector.
Natasha Denona Love Eyeshadow Palette, S$98
Beauty lovers are guaranteed to fall in love with this luxurious eyeshadow palette. Containing 15 brand new shades in Natasha Denona’s famous, buttery smooth formula, it is chock full of sumptuous pinks, purples and mauves in multiple finishes to help you create an effortlessly seductive eye look.

Diptyque Paris En Fleur Scented Candle, S$108
Just the thought of Paris and flowers bring connotations of romance and French luxury fragrance house, Diptyque has released a limited edition scented candle that encapsulates both. Inspired by the roses of the Bagatelle gardens in Paris, this new scent is a chypre with main notes of rose, patchouli and fresh petals. Definitely one to set the mood with.
IT Cosmetics Love Is The Foundation Brush, S$45
Instead of whipping out a rose, this limited edition heart-shaped brush by IT Cosmetics is more likely to make beauty lovers go, “I do.” Raved by Youtube stars such as Kathleen Lights, this multi-purpose face brush blends foundation seamlessly with minimal effort. Great for liquids, creams and even powders thanks to its synthetic fibres, it’s an essential for anyone’s makeup routine.
Loewe Aura Pink Magnolia, S$210 for 100ml
Spanish luxury fashion house Loewe has a very small and precise curation of scents released under their brand. So when they have decided to debut a new fragrance, both beauty and fashion lovers’ alike take note. Housed in their signature rectangular, minimalistic bottles, Loewe’s Aura Pink Magnolia is a floral gourmand with magnolia as the star ingredient, alongside supporting notes of musk, sandalwood and red fruits.
