Regardless of your Valentine’s Day plans, everyone wants to feel a little luxe and romantic in February. Especially if your current plans revolve around a night making sweet love to some chocolate and a bottle of wine alone on your couch like yours truly, it can help to feel like Grace Kelly reclining while you do so. And nothing will make you feel more like Grace Kelly than a beautifully designed product. A product that will look good while making you look good. Check out our picks below:
Confession: I spend a lot of time at Sephora. For some reason, I feel like any money I spend there doesn’t count, like calories you don’t add yo your calorie tracker (hint: they never happened). With the amount of time I’ve spent there, you can bet your a** I’ve tried on every fragrance in their catalog. Every time I go to buy perfume, I tell myself I’m going to branch out, but nothing can beat Florence by Tocca, so that’s the only perfume I’ve ever gone home with. It wears beautifully, makes itself known without making an Axe like statement, and is supposed to make me smell like a “Parisian sophisticate”. An earthy floral, this perfume should be stocked in your purse stat. Bonus: The rollerball comes in beautiful gold and olive packaging.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting
Hourglass is one of my favorite finds from the past year. Of my Hourglass finds, this compact is by far my favorite. I’ve had a hard time finding a natural looking highlighter. Most of my other attempts revolved around sticks or liquids, which were either too harsh or too gummy on my skin. This compact delivers a subtle healthy glow through blush, highlighter, and a bronzer. It’s my one stop shop in the morning to sculpt a dynamic look, even in the middle of February when it’s been approximately 5 months since I last saw sunshine. Bonus: You’ll want to show off the beautiful, marble look case.
This lip color comes in a pink leather case that looks oh so chic. It also, plumps, moisturizes, and delivers custom lip color by reacting to your skin’s Ph. The color is sheer and your lips, but better. Additionally, if you’re anything like me, your lips are a hot mess by now so it pays to have a lip balm that you actually want to wear.
